Rest in peace, Margaret Juntwait (Met radio broadcast host from 2004-2014)

My brother told me this evening that Ms. Juntwait had died. I was very surprised as I had no idea she was ill, or even that she had stopped hosting (I haven't heard a complete Met broadcast since last December, when she was still working). Though I've always been partial to the previous host of the Met broadcasts, Peter Allen, I thought Margaret did a fine job and had a good radio voice. Here's her Wikipedia entry:

Sorry to hear it. She was ill for quite some time. It's probably good that her co-host, Ira Siff, doesn't have to go on the air just now. I sensed that they were fond of each other. For some reason Siff doesn't rate a mention in her Wiki piece.
