ABC News Radio reporter Vic Ratner to retire
I am writing with news that Vic Ratner - our legendary work horse, Capitol reporter, war correspondent and space enthusiast - is retiring.
Ratner spent the past 40 years of his career on ABC News Radio covering stories including the "Watergate Seven" trial in Washington, several presidential campaigns and nearly every space shuttle launch.
He has reported from 54 countries and 49 states. For the record book, only South Dakota — the Mt. Rushmore State — has escaped his attention.
Soon after the news broke, several media professionals reacted on Twitter.
