“ with his 'last borns'..Taking time to celebrate a man who gave both  and I, a chance on  It was actually my 2nd shot at this television gig and he saw a flame that I thought had died many years ago. Clocking 14 years in the media industry this year, I have to say Linus is one of the few bosses have worked with, who aims at lifting others and nurturing talent. They say 'A legacy is not leaving something for people, it's leaving something in people'.... Go yea well Sir,you've left a mark!”
