Sending Doug and his family so much love in their time of grief. I am sad to see Doug go but am hoping this new adventure and moving closer to his family will help lift him up. Mad respect for always delivering the news in a professional, neutral manner. Good luck friend.
Good luck!! Many blessings on your new adventure. Hopefully we get to see you again soon but if you miss Idaho, do not, I repeat, do not hesitate to come back to us. OK take care may God bless you and don’t forget about us here in Idaho.
We moved to Idaho from Northern Michigan at the same time Doug moved here. It was nice having a familiar face from back home on the news here. He will be missed.
Doug, you did a great job here in boise. Here is wishing you the best
Come back soon.
So sad to lose Doug, he’s wonderful. I’m guessing Brian will move into his programming. Doug, you have been so strong and a calming influence during stressful times. You will truly be missed.
