社评 0717 福斯电视新闻尖兵候塞退役晚会
认识福斯二十六号电视台晨间新闻主播候塞已经二十多年了， 记得二十年前我们邀请到二十多位河南少林寺武术小将们来休斯敦表演。 这群身怀绝技的小僧， 我每天带他们到福斯电视台演播大厅 ，现塲向观眾们表示武功 ，尤其是年仅八岁身怀武术绝学童子功， 把现塲观眾看得目瞪口呆， 当时在实况转播的候塞直言这是我此生见过的最精彩和令人无法置信的功夫表演。
多年来 ，他曾经多次為我们主持过春节园游会， 有几年一大早就到我们的电视台向清晨之电视观眾讲说华人如何吃年夜饭 。
昨晚我们参加了他在福斯电视台主持晨间节目三十年之退休晚会， 将近一千位他的同事好友挤进了休斯敦机场的飞机大楼内， 候塞被打扮成即将到海边度假， 手持雪茄戴上墨镜一幅轻鬆自在之模様， 毕竟他也真的老了。 他变得清瘦得多， 比起当年的英姿焕发开怀大笑之身影， 毕竟岁月不饶人。
当晚所有大休斯敦地区之市长、 郡长、 议员， 法官及商业媒体重要人士都出席了晚会。 大家对他过去三十年来所做之社区新闻报导表示高度之感谢和不捨， 我们也和他的老闆毕柏谈到过去几十年来美南电视台和候塞之深厚情谊。
当晚我送他一个绣有双喜之中国瓷器為纪念， 并诚挚地邀请他為美南传媒之顾问， 他低声地告诉我， 我家就住在你们电视台附近。
候塞这名新闻尖兵从战塲上退役了， 他的一生透过镜头影响了无数观眾， 陪伴休斯敦市民度过清晨时光， 他的一生是充实美满的退下舞台， 如今他更希望加入我们的团队来為德州地区少数族裔之未来贡献力量。
Fox New Stop Soldier Is Retiring
It has been more than twenty years since I met the Fox News morning news anchor Jose Grinan. During that time, Southern News Group invited more than thirty Shaolin martial arts monks to come to Houston to perform. I took them to the Fox TV studio in the morning to perform in a live show. Their performance just stunned the TV audience and Jose told me that it was the most wonderful and incredible Kung Fu show he had ever seen in his life.
Over the years, Jose always gave a shout out for our Lunar New Year celebration and let his viewers have a view of our culture.
Last night we attended Jose's retirement party. Thousands of his colleagues and friends squeezed into the Houston Million DollarAir Inter-Link Hanger to say goodbye to him. Jose was dressed in a blue shirt with a cigar in his hand and wearing sunglasses, It shows that Jose and his wife Katy will enjoy their life in the future.
At the party were many local politicians including the mayor, congressmen, city council members and a County Commissioner, all on the stage to share their stories and times they shared with Jose over the past several years. Jose's professional life was influenced by many of our citizens. He had a full and happy time on the TV stage for thirty years.
Jose, you are a top soldier in the media business. We will miss your show, but we still want you to be a part of our mission to work for the future of ethnic minorities in our community and in our nation.
