The retirement of Karen Foss...


One of the things I love about St. Louis is that so little changes. I grew up here…eating frozen yogurt, inhaling White Castle burgers, visiting the many attractions at Forest Park and listening to Cardinal’s baseball on the radio ‘cause they called the game better (wink).

Last night it was announced that Karen Foss will retire from KSDK. Since 1979 she has been a part of the KSDK family and a part of my St. Louis routine.

She retires after a 27 years on the air…after blazing a trail for women in news through hard work and accuracy.

Go on with your bad self, Ms. Foss…

Wow, I had not heard that she is retiring. You're right, she's such a major part of St. Louis and while I'm happy for her, I am a little sad, too.

OMG. No way. A bitch is sh!ttin' me.

I've lived here since 1983. There's no way I can watch the evening news without her.
