The Passing of NBC10's Edie Huggins - Philadelphia Media

I was saddened this morning to learn that Edie Huggins, a long-time face of NBC10 in Philadelphia, passed away last night. Edie was a television news media pioneer, role model for women and for the entire African-American community.

She was kind, caring and down to earth. She was one of the first women in journalism that I met while I was still a public relations student at Drexel University in the 1980s. She shared stories, inspirations, and tips as to how to be a better PR practitioner. Since then, I have had the opportunity to work with Edie from time to time. She was always a lady - always dignified - and will always remain a role model in my eyes.

NBC10 is remembering Edie at -- even if you're not from Philadelphia, her story is worth reading.
