Comment Of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) On Marselis “Div” Parsons

For most Vermonters, Div Parsons defined the role of anchor in our state as television news grew, matured and adapted over the last several decades.  He is a friend and for years has been the face of TV news in Verm‎ont.  His skill and his confident voice made him a sure and steady presence in our homes as he reported on events large and small that have continued to shape our state.  Div and I have kept in touch since his retirement, and I will always fondly remember those wide-ranging chats.  Marcelle and I offer our thoughts and prayers to Julie, Susan and their family and to Div’s professional family at WCAX. I know how happy he was to see Susan with his new grandchild.
