The great populist newsman Joe Day reported for WCVB-TV and then WHDH-TV in Boston before moving to Santa Fe NM. He passed away in March 2015. His obituary may be found in the Boston Globe.

To add to the sad news, Les Kretman passed away in September 2018. After his time at WGBH, WHDH-Channel 5, and WCVB, he worked for NBC News for 30 years, the last 10 as White House producer.

Chris Gilbert called from Florida to let me know that I was “missing.” I never knew! I’m missing in plain sight, raising funds for clinical care and research at McLean Hospital in Belmont. Hope to see folks at the reunion in May!

3 of the missing alumni are Facebook Friends of mine. David Elinoff, who lives in Holliston, MA; Jim Deering, who lives in Sebastian, FL; and Lisa Cureton, who lives somewhere in the New York City area. I don’t have phone numbers of email addresses for any of them, however. Hope that helps.

I was just perusing the list of “missing” WGBH alumni and was surprised that someone as prominent as Sam Newbury would be there, after his 25+ years working at FCI in Pittsburgh.

There are several obituaries (from the Pittsburgh… Read more »

Sandy and I live in Bonita Springs FL. We attended a GBH reunion years ago; sorry to miss the recent gathering. I work for the Red Sox during spring training either as director of in stadium programming, technical director, or tour guide.

I remember watching the iconic game 6 of the 1975 World Series at your house. I remember leaping up when Carlton Fisk hit the game-winning homer and almost putting my hands through your ceiling.

Looking forward to catching up with you and Sandy.

Bonnie Hammer is very much in the limelight…she’s NBCUniversal’s Cable Chairman managing over 2,000 employees and half of Comcast’s multi-billion dollar revenue. She lives in Westport, Connecticut.

Wow. I didn’t even know I was missing all these years.

Sadly Glennie Wilding-White passed away on January 31, 2014.

Susanna Van Cleef Jo

How did I get lost? Continuity Director 1959-1962(?). Are many people I worked with still alive?

Susan Bluttman

I’m missing in plain sight! Come find me….
