We’ve Lost A Great One

HC BobConrad.jpg

Bob Conrad, legendary political reporter and columnist for the late Hartford Times, died on Monday at age 91. After the demise of The Times, Bob wrote for the New Britain Herald, and after he retired in 1983 continued to write  a political column that appeared in several newspapers.

Please read Jon Lender’s great reflection on Bob’s career.

Bob was  a “Bristol Boy”, a member of “The Greatest Generation”, and an extraordinarily nice man who came with none of the arrogance that can occasionally infect successful people. He will be missed by his fellow reporters and all at the state capitol who had the pleasure of knowing him.


Perpetual Intern No More…

Over at WNPR they’ve finally made an honest man of “perpetual intern” Tucker Ives. Here’s more about Tucker, who grew up in Marlborough, CT and is a “proud former video production nerd from RHAM High School.”


Already Missing Roger

Roger Catlin

After 25 years at the Hartford Courant, Roger Catlin has handed in his resignation. He is moving to D.C. where his wife, housing advocate Diane Randall, is currently working. Roger has covered TV for the last nine years but previously was the Courant’s excellent rock critic. Here’s his goodbye from his last sunday column:

I bid farewell to readers of The Hartford Courant today after 25 years, most of it in the features department, where for the past nine years I’ve been writing about television after 12 years as rock critic.

I was happy to be on the job at a time when the ambitions and depth of series television frequently outstripped anything happening in film, while reality shows provided the guiltiest pleasures anyone needed.

I always appreciated the thoughtfulness (and patience) of readers over the years. Your careful reading and guidance was appreciated. I’m moving with my family to Washington, D.C., a city that marches to the beat of its own imagined television drama (one that’s usually found on CSPAN). See you down the line.

Passing of Gov. Bruce Sundlun

Condolences go out to WFSB’s Kara Sundlun whose father, former Rhode Island Governor Bruce Sundlun, has died. The 91 year-old Sundlun served as Governor from 1991-1995.
