Dick Jensen's Blog


I have mixed emotions about "Girlhood." Yes, that word is in dictionaries.

Girlhood is what local televised newscasts have become. TV stations where I live are hiring on-camera reporters who look and sound like college coeds. My observation is from a retired professor and practitioner of televised journalism.

I am also the great-grandfather of a precious little girl who was born in 2018. I love her and all the female relatives in our family. Maybe my great-granddaughter will become a "star" in broadcast journalism. I wish the best for her beyond "girlhood."

Meanwhile, this octogenarian honors my wife and respects other female branches on our family tree. Happy New Year to "girlhood"!
