On a personal note, Taz, after meeting Jan over breakfast one morning always called her "Miss America".
Taz encouraged her to take a sales aptitude test, she did and scored in the top 1%. Taz then encouraged her to take early retirement from US Air and start a new career, she did and she's never looked back.
A few years ago, I was chatting on the phone with Taz and told him Jan was a VP of Marketing in the furniture business. He said, "I always knew "Miss America" had it! Give her a hug from me and tell her I'm proud of her."
A great man, a good friend and a mentor to hundreds of broadcast professionals.
