New York Woman in a Country Song
In 2006 I had the pleasure of working with Dorie Klissas, former producer of the Today Show with Katie Couric. The morning this piece was due to air, Katie announced her departure from the show, and this piece was never aired.

Dorie and I had a lot of fun and quickly became friends. When I found this video the other day I thought you might enjoy watching it. Renee
