Ted Koppy stopped by and visited this afternoon. Like me Ted’s no longer on-the-air at Channel 8. It’s a decision I don’t understand, but it’s not his or my decision (and I seem to not understand many of their decisions).
Just in case you’ve never met Ted he’s the world’s most fit individual. He is the guy on the Wheaties box! I suspect his muscles have muscles.
More importantly he’s a stand-up guy… a shirt off his back guy (though if I had his body I’d probably never wear a shirt). He is what you were brought up to believe adults were.
I showed him around the station, took him to the garden and then dinner. To commemorate our dining together again we headed to a diner–The Gold Roc in West Hartford.
Ted’s spending this summer with his wife and two school age daughters. They’re all going back for a trip to see his family in Minnesota.
Any station (including mine) would benefit by having someone of Ted’s integrity and intelligence on-the-air. That doesn’t make not working suck less.
