I was, as you all were, shocked to hear this as well.
Steve Duin wrote this: "I don't pretend I knew her that well. I'm just one of hundreds of Oregonians who, over the years, fell in love with Tauber's radio voice."
That's me also. As I've been here at PDXradio for about 10 years, and formerly briefly in the radio biz, and an avid listener always, I felt I "knew" Heidi a bit. She was wonderful on air, as you pros have articulated.
Believe me, when I saw the crawler tease on KATU, "Radio annoucer dies in crash", my thoughts immediately came to this board, and you all. And, reading your heartfelt tributes has made me proud to be a small part of this family. My thoughts and prayers go out to Heidi's memory and her family and friends. The PDX radio community has lost another great one.
