Comments:

I attended Chatham College in Pittsburgh and Westminster College in New Wilmington, and after leaving school became a radio announcer and news anchor in York, Pennsylvania.

I continued my career in radio in Toledo, Ohio and Harrisburg, PA, before moving to Phoenix, Arizona to anchor TV news. I continued working in TV news as a reporter in Cleveland, Ohio, then back to Phoenix, Arizona to anchor TV news and report, before retiring to have children.

I wrote a book and several other free-lance writing projects while home with children. Finished my degree in Journalism, Communications and Religion at University of New Orleans.

Returned to work as a classical music host in Omaha, Nebraska, a development officer for Opera Omaha, then worked as morning news anchor at KFAB In Omaha, Nebraska before relocating to Tampa Florida as classical music host at Classical WSMR 89.1 Radio, (formerly WUSF Radio) where was employed until March of 2012. I was laid off from WSMR due to budget cuts and worked part-time for a year as the weekend news anchor at WFLA Radio in Tampa.

Unfortunately radio news has fallen on hard times. I have now taken a new full-time job as a copywriter/voiceover talent at Spectrio, an audio/video marketing firm headquartered in Tampa Bay.

I married John Klecic of Farrell, PA, a radio personality known as Johnny Andrews, who became a manager of radio stations and manager of the Nebraska Huskers Radio Network. He retired in 2007.

My oldest son Chris lives in Omaha, and after working for Enterprise Car Rental as a regional manager, now owns and operated Earthwise Pet Supply in Valrico, Florida. He is married and the father of Kyle Klecic. You know what that makes me! My youngest son Kerry is a TV news reporter and Social Media Producer for Fox 13 in Tampa Bay. The acorn does not roll far from the tree.

Ray was my next door neighbor, a good friend and I was shocked to hear he had passed away awhile ago, but have never been able to find out what happened. If anyone knows, I would appreciate the information. He was a wonderful guy.
