Glen Loyd, long-time consumer advocate, to retire

WI State Journal

In this interview, WISC-TV Morning show anchor Rob Starbuck does a pretty fair impression of me. Every TV station where I've worked had news people who mimiced me for laughs. These impressionists started off behind my back and then confronted me with my own voice to make it even more funny for the newsroom. I didn't know what to make of it. Now my 7-year-old granddaughter is doing it. And my wife just confessed that she and my son impersonate me it when I'm not around.

Am I really that goofy?
