"Here's a partial list of some of the things Linda Ellerbee has done in her long career as a broadcast journalist: disc jockey in Chicago, program director in San Francisco, radio reporter in Alaska, TV reporter in Houston, New York, and Washington DC, network newsmagazine anchor, nightly news correspondent, overnight co-anchor, weekend morning co-anchor, morning show reporter, cable news commentator --do I really need to go on? Let us accept for the record that 60-year-old Ellerbee, who was born in Bryan and grew up in Houston, has been a jack of all trades and a master of many, and that, with her trademark wit and irreverence and literate, if outspoken, take on the world and its wonders, she's been a role model for a generation or more of women coming up through the business. There are, fittingly, Peabody and CableAce awards, a DuPont, and an Emmy on her shelf, along with three books about her life and times -- the most recent, Take Big Bites, arrived in stores in April. But there are also the experiences and adventures that cannot be quantified -- her work with and for kids, as producer, writer, and host of the syndicated weekly program Nick News, and the serious documentaries she produces with her partner, Rolfe Tressem, under the banner of their Lucky Duck productions, and her travels around the world as a breast cancer survivor giving inspirational speeches. She's lived an extraordinary life, as you can plainly see, but as she herself might say, and probably has -- and so it goes." - Evan Smith, Texas Monthly Talks, Broadcast 5.12.05
