Randy ShandobilKTVU Channel 2 Political Editor Randy Shandobil is retiring today, and Northern California is poorer for it.

Carla Marinucci, my esteemed colleague at the Chronicle, has already assembled a fitting tribute, so I’ll not reinvent the wheel. I’d simply add that Randy brought a depth of knowledge, a pitbull-like determination and a rapier wit to his job, each of which are valuable enough in television journalism but are so very rarely found in combination. He’s damned good at his job, and will be sorely missed by his fellow journalists and perhaps even moreso by his legions of viewers.

    What I like about Randy was that he wasn’t afraid to ask the question which sometimes made the person being interviewed uncomfortable. I used to run into Randy up in Sacramento numerous times and found him to be a very humble man who stop and chat with anyone who recognized him.
