    You’re relaxed, genuine demeanor encourages everyone to watch you. I also love your sense of humor, especially when you dance around the studio!
    Keep up the great work . . . we all look forward to hearing your voice first thing in the morning when we turn our TVs on (I know I do). Thank you for being there for us throughout these past 25 years.

    Happy 25th Ukee. I ran into you once on the elevator at Hahnemann Hospital, and addressed you as Denzel’s cousin…LOL. You were so gracious and friendly, just the way we see you on screen. I love your fresh perspectives on the news in its delivery. Keep up the good work, and long life to you.

    All best wishes, Ukee, on your 25th anniversary! When I first started listening to your broadcasts many years ago, the timbre of your voice told me, “Here is a man who sings!” Beautiful tone! It carries over into your speaking voice, and I have had the pleasure of hearing clear, and well-spoken news reports ever since. You are a master of the English language and you use your fine talent well on the air. I enjoy listening to news well presented…intelligently, – with humor, compassion, dignity and class. You are all of these! BRAVO on a job well done. I hope to enjoy listening to you for many more years to come. To a gentleman and a scholar, congratulations!

    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.

  21. Valerie Herring says:

    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! : )

  24. wallyhorse says:

    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).

  25. Thea Ann Flores says:

    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!

    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!
