Gov. Malloy Statement on the Passing of Fran Schneidau
(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy today released the following statement regarding the passing of Fran Schneidau, who worked for nearly forty years as Connecticut Bureau Chief for WCBS 880AM:
“For nearly forty years, Fran’s voice was heard delivering news from the State of Connecticut to millions of radio listeners throughout the greater New York City metropolitan area, and she did it with class, reputability, and her own trusted style. She dedicated her profession to journalism, and was respected by so many – including numerous young and upcoming reporters who consistently cite her as an inspiration. We will miss Fran, and we extend our deepest condolences to her family, friends, and colleagues at WCBS.”
In February, Governor Malloy proclaimed “Fran Schneidau Day” in the State of Connecticut to commemorate her retirement.
