I'll miss the Director popping by to ask 'What's going on in the media world?'

Seriously, he's been an incredible boss and a better friend.

Also -- let's be honest -- there probably won't be a better dressed TBI Director anytime soon. :-) https://twitter.com/TBInvestigation/status/996756420098953216
