I believe -- though I could be wrong -- that she was also on KFRC AM,
before they went thru one of their format changes. When FM made its most
recent format change, she lost that gig, too. I guess these
fans-in-the-stands interviews is the only gig she can get these days.

And they (Frank Dill and Mike Cleary) featured her quite a bit for a
"mere traffic reporter," which is how she eventually got the KFRC gig.
She used to talk a lot -- for years, actually -- about her then-beau,
the Lithuanian surf guitarist. I believe they eventually got married
and, for all I know, they still are married.

Still going strong in our morning paper. One of my favorites.

I read many years ago that the strip's creator had died. I guess it was
taken over by someone else.

I realize I'm in the minority with Frank and Mike, and it's not that I
disliked them. I did get tired of them after a while, though. What
bugged me about Dill was that he seemed pretty slow to get a joke. (Same
thing happens with Kruk and Kuip -- Kruk's the slow one.)

Probably true. And when they left, so did Madden, after a while, because
he wasn't comfy with whoever replaced Dill.

I can't say I ever formed a strong opinion of him.

She was pretty funny. The little skits they did were pretty annoying,
but she found a way to make her contribution funny. Others... didn't. I
do not, however, welcome her presence during Giants games on FSN. I see
no purpose in her weird little digressions.

Neither do I.

Well, see, you *are* older than I am -- but not so much so, I'm
guessing, that you've set your DVR to record every episode of "Murder
She Wrote."
