It is with a heavy heart that we have to report that our colleague Janet Sawyer passed away Feb. 17, 2021 as a result of COVID-19. After a long career as an Orlando TV news reporter, Janet was the first recruit to join “A World of Difference” as a senior correspondent. She believed in the show and the mission, and worked tirelessly to create perfect segments and brainstorm ways to make the program bigger and better. Beyond that, Janet was a caring and spiritual colleague. The show — and we all — are diminished with the dimming of her light. She made a world of difference.
