DAN: Good Luck and Godspeed
By Dan O'Donnell
As you've undoubtedly heard by now, my good friend and now-former coworker Vicky Hollowell is leaving WTMJ for the Marines. Vicky has anchored newscasts on Wisconsin Sports Weekend for years, and it's no stretch to say that Radio City just won't be the same without her.
We have spent the day commending her dedication, her patriotism, her sheer fortitude, but as I sit here waiting for a taxi to take me to her farewell party, I want to tell you about something you might not have heard about her--she is quite possibly the nicest, friendliest person I've ever worked with. In fact, when she first told me she was enlisting several months ago, my first thought was "Vicky, you're too nice for the Marines!"
But underneath her quick smile and easygoing demeanor lies the heart of a warrior, and while I'm sad to see her go, our country will be better off for her service to it.
So Semper Fi, Marine, your first order is to stay in touch!
