Some of you may be familiar with some of David Sanborn's music during the Local Forecast segments of The Weather Channel, including "Breaking Point", "Let's Just Say Goodbye", and "Lotus Blossom". IIRC I've heard perhaps his most famous composition, "The Dream" on the network before even if its unconfirmed according to TWC Classics. 

Roxanne Rosedale (known professionally simply as Roxanne), the assistant on the original Bud Collyer version of "Beat the Clock," passed away on May 2nd, 2024 at an assisted care facility in her hometown of Minneapolis at the age of 95.

Before BTC, Roxanne was also the assistant to the first-ever Goodson-Todman TV production (and CBS game show that was carried on at least two stations), Winner Take All, when it was hosted by Bud Collyer from 1948 to 1950.
