Market to Market Remembers Colleague

Market to Market Remembers Colleague Market to Market lost a dear member of our family last Friday when 51-year old James Kay passed away.

Over the past two decades, many of the words which shaped our program were written by Jim. He was the consummate wordsmith, a stickler for journalistic accuracy and a fastidious grammarian.

Throughout his career, Jim wrote for Market to Market while courageously battling a long succession of illnesses that would have stopped lesser men. Jim was committed to the craft of journalism and expected nothing less from his colleagues, yet he also was a person of remarkable grace. His passion, skill --and especially his sense of humor -- will be sorely missed.
