In 1999 I was studying communications at the University of Lugano, Switzerland, and through some common friends Gene was able to arrange a two months internship at CTV 15 for me. It's been the best experience of my life and I will always be grateful to him for everything he taught me. Fourteen years later I work for the Swiss Radio, I covered two Olympics games (with the third ones coming in three months), five ice hockey world championships and many other events and if I got here is also because of Gene and his teachings. I regret not having had the chance to come to visit him again since 1999... It has always been in my plans but it never happened. But I have been very lucky to meet him and I will never forget him, he was a real gentleman. And it was always great to hear with how much love he talked about his family and his job. Thank you Gene!
