    Ruta Lee has been a joy to work with over the past few years as a celebrity correspondent for Lifestyle Magazine. She is a complete professional as well as lovely and welcoming lady. We noticed you used a few of the photos in your recaps at the end of each video of Ruta with our hosts Mike and Gayle Tucker as well as celebrity guests like George Wallace, Della Reese and Dick & Pat Van Patton.
