She doesn’t like to brag, in fact the whole notion of being recognized for her work makes her fidget, but Denise D’Ascenzo is receiving a big honor. My longtime co-anchor has been elected to the Silver Circle for the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
Basically, Denise is being honored for more than a quarter century of excellence in broadcast journalism and contributions to the community. I’m extra proud, because I nominated her.
Truth be told, I’ve wanted to nominate her for years, but she recoiled in horror at the prospect of being in the position where our mathematically gifted viewers might be able to take an educated guess at her age in a youth-oriented business. I’ll tell you a secret: Denise is over 35. Shhh.
We are so beaming with pride and joy. Congratulations, my friend.
