Stacey trained me in December 1982 for my first paying job in radio (meaning my first gig that mattered in the medium), as a Metro Traffic Control reporter in Los Angeles. I regularly worked under her anchorship during the summers of 1983 and 1984, when she and I comprised a weekend team for the summer beach activity.
I always looked up to Binn, no matter how tough she was on me, and for that I'm grateful. I was surprised and delighted to hear a staged Binn report for Metro as a part of some late-80s feature film I was watching last year on cable. I hope she was paid handsomely for the bit; I'm sure Metro was.
