CDA: Willard Scott
My brother Patrick and my husband alerted me to the death of Willard Scott, at the age of 87. He had a standing gig on the Today Show for the last few years, celebrating the birthdays of Americans who were turning 100 or above. Do you think he hoped to celebrate his own birthday in that way? Do you think he pictured his own face on one of those jars of Smucker's jam?
Here's a sweet tribute to him when he more or less retired from the Today Show.
