I’m extremely pleased to announce that Judy Isikow has agreed to take on the responsibility of Senior Producer for Futures and Features.

Judy has excelled at every challenge she’s taken on here from her first days as Peter’s assistant to her championing Closer Look with Tom Johnson to producing too many Person’s of the Week to count. Her creativity and passion for story telling are infectious and will be a terrific asset to the program.

Diane and I also want to thank Susie Banikarim and Justine Schiro who went above and beyond over the past few months. The program benefited greatly from their voice and perspective and we are indebted to them for the outstanding contributions they make every day.

Please join us in congratulating Judy as she begins her new role today.
