So very sorry to hear of the passing of Joe Tier.

Joe went to Washington with me when we built and staffed the "M" Street studios and we both returned to New York- when that job was done. All that worked with Joe knew him as a talented and kind man with a smile that was iinfectious.

Joe came out of the coal mining area of Pennsylvania and could be as tough as that hard coal and as warm as the fire it produces.

You will be sorely missed.
