As you are aware, KNCO has a new news person in the afternoons. Chris Gilbert. Chris is a great addition to the staff. Chris and I worked together at KUBA in Yuba City for 25 years. Recently the Yuba City city council recognized Chris for his decades of hard work. I was flattered when Chris’s
long suffering girl friend invited my wife and I to his ceremony. Just like a little league team, after the event we all went out for pizza. Imagine our surprise when an actual movie star dropped in with a note of congratulations:
Chris and Vern, aka Mini Me.
If ever a person deserved the long due recognition, it is my friend, and again co-worker, Chris Gilbert
Good luck to Chris and Mini Me on the new gig!
