Thank you for your well written, and well deserved, story on Sheila Balistreri. In my 23 years at KTUU, I never worked with a more dedicated journalist than Sheila. Most viewers don’t know that for most of her tenure, Sheila produced and wrote “Morning Edition” herself. To my memory, she never missed a day, and never complained. She was a consummate professional who inspired loyalty from viewers and respect from her colleagues. She set the standard. I’m delighted to see Norma Goodman inducted into the NATAS Golden Circle. It is my hope that Sheila Balistreri will soon be so honored. Congratulations, Sheila, and here’s hoping you enjoy many mornings sleeping in.
