On Saturday famed Connecticut news anchor Denise D’Ascenzo passed away. My parents choice of news network for my entire life is Channel 3 WFSB. I grew up watching Denise deliver the good and the bad in my home state. The announcement of her passing has shocked me and many others. The most painful part was turning on the news on Monday evening only to see an empty chair next to Dennis House, her co-anchor. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. Farewell Denise! You made an impact in journalism by setting an example of dignity and grace.
At the top of the post I added a video link of a tribute put together by her colleagues at WFSB about her life and legacy. She is a true Connecticut legend.
