( Sully Says ) You Can't Judge A Book By It's Cover

Posted: Updated:

You can't judge a book by it's cover.

Justin Kroger is an editor at Channel 7. 

At first glance, you are sure to be drawn to Justin's ears. I don't know what they're called , but he has huge decorations that hang from his ears.  They look painful.   His arms are also covered with tattoos.  

Justin and I live in different worlds. 

My day usually ends at 11:30 p.m. I have a feeling his nights are just getting started at that time. He's cool, I'm not.

I'll be honest.  I didn't know what to think when I saw Justin for the first time. That was two years ago.  

Wednesday will be Justin Kroger's final day at KATV.  He's leaving for a job in Los Angeles,California.

The news department is losing one of it's most valuable employees. 

The anchors may be the face of the station, but a newscast wouldn't be very successful without video, and Justin is the most skilled video editor I've seen in my 30 years of local TV.

He has been everything you would want in a co-worker.  Anyone at KATV who's had any contact with Justin will tell you the same thing. 

Justin has always been eager to help, cool under pressure and highly professional.  I don't know how many times I've caught him ( during downtime) watching tutorials on how to perfect his craft.

One of the great things about my job is that I get to work with some passionate , talented young people.  On the flip side, most like Justin, end up leaving for better opportunities.

I'm glad I had a chance to work with Justin.
