RIP Shannon Krystosek Jansen

I was very sad to learn of Shannon's death. Some in INBA may remember Shannon from her days at WGIL Radio in Galesburg.

She was only 33 at the time of her tragic and unexpected death.

My condolences to Shannon's family and friends.

Is it appropriate to answer that question "no" when you're making the request for a commercial newspaper or broadcaster?
