    Cal Callaway will be ,in my faded news memory, the best desk person I ever had the chance of working with. In a breaking news situation, I just had to hear his voice on the other end of the IFB to know things were going to get done.

    In a news world where decision making … let alone making the RIGHT decision … is almost non existant on a manager level, Cal was right on 100 percent.

    ADDITION. The memory refreshes.. my details from above are about the man I worked with in 1998. Things in the WXIA newsroom, good and bad, were alot different when I quit in 2006.

    I am confident that it would be hard for a news director to do his job with both hands tied behind your back.
