WKAR says farewell Melissa Benmark...and thanks!

Nov 13, 2015

Today was "Morning Edition" host Melissa Benmark's last day at WKAR, and her friends and colleagues send her off with this retrospective.


This is a hard day for us here at WKAR. Today we’re saying goodbye to someone who means a lot to us and to many of you. Over the past 26 years, Melissa Benmark has done a lot of great work here at WKAR. She’s our Morning Edition host and produces interviews on Current State.

Today, Melissa is retiring. Not forever - she’s far too young – but from Michigan State University.

Ever since she broke the news, we’ve all been agonizing over what to say to her and how to say it. We hope this will suffice, Melissa. This one is for you.
