    Happy 25th Ukee…and many more…it’s great to see a hometown Philly guy be such a success.

    I met you once at a all star b ball game my daughter was playing in several years ago you were covering with the mayor–you are a true gentleman.

    BTW, when I watch you with chef Walter it’s obvious you’re another food lover!

    Thanks for the great job.

      If you’re going to leave a disrespectful comment, at least take a moment to learn English. Third graders know the difference between your & you’re.

  • Valerie Herring

    Congrats on 25 years Ukee! Love watching you on t.v. You are such a down to earth, lovable guy. Rainy days are brighter with your smile and sense of humor. I always have to hear you say, “Now stay tune for the Young and the Restless.” I’m glad you love your job, because your audience will never let you retire! Ha! Ha! : )

    Happy anniversary. Hard to believe it has been 25 years.

    I’m sure at the same time, today is a bittersweet day because as I’m sure you know by now, former Channel 3 anchor and longtime CNBC anchor Mark Haines passed away last night (that news was announced on CNBC just before 10:00 this morning).

  • Thea Ann Flores

    Happy 25th Anniversary Ukee! You have been my favorite for years. Always a gentleman and always professional. I met you twice and you always took the time to take a quick picture with me. You will have many more years of pleased viewers. CBS is Blessed to have you. Go Ukee! Go!

  • Carolyn

    Happy Anniversary Ukee. Wow 25 years. I have been watching you for all those years! You have truly entertained me over the years. You are the man and the reason I enjoy CBS 3 / KYW. Thanks and hope you stick around for a lot longer.

  • Stephanie Patterson

    Happy Anniversary, Ukee! You have consistently represented yourself and KYW with class. Your news reporting and interviews demonstrate a wealth of knowledge, sensitivity, and passion. I wonder how many kids at this moment are saying, “I want to do what Ukee does when I grow up.” BRAVO!
