Friday, May 3oth, is a red-letter day for Montana Public Radio News. After more than three decades as our News Director, Sally Mauk is retiring. She's logged hundreds of hours of interviews, on-the-scene fire coverage, long, frantic election nights and news-poor holidays.

She sat down with MTPR General Manager William Marcus today to reflect on her career. And even though the tables were turned, she still asked the first question.
