I just received this note from KTVU's Rita Williams:
Rich, thanks so much for all the kind things you have said about my reporting through the years. I continue to love what I do. But when I retire in February, I will be just a few weeks shy of my 66th birthday and feel it is time to hand off the microphone to another generation. It has been a hard decision to make but, rest assured, the decision was mine...not management's. I am ready to discover a new chapter in my life and have lots of opportunities to pursue. And many thanks to all the faithful viewers who have sent me such lovely notes. It makes the last 40 years worthwhile to know that people noticed and appreciated the hard work I always tried to do.
