ABC's Vic Ratner Retiring


On Friday, ABC News President Ben Sherwood sent a note to the ABC news division letting them know the "legendary workhorse" is retiring at the end of this month after a 40-year career. Sherwood said, "Most careers can be captured in words. Vic’s career is captured in sounds. In his incredible 40 years on the air for ABC News Radio, Vic has painted vivid pictures for our listeners with a rich and imaginative vocabulary that brought stories to life and gave meaning to 'Gemini' and 'Apollo' and even 'filibuster' and 'quorum.' With every syllable, Vic defined and embodied excellence."
Ratner said, “I have been fortunate to work with and learn from exceptionally talented and innovative people at ABC. Thanks to all of you for the collaborative effort, which makes us the best.”

I have listened to Vic's reports at numerous stations I have worked at over the last 50 years. He is one of the best in the business. Have a great retirement Vic!
