We are very sorry to report the death, from ovarian cancer, of the vastly popular Margaret Juntwait, presenter of the Metropolitan Opera’s Saturday Afternoon Radio Broadcasts for the past decade.
Margaret sounded the same, whether on air or off. She was charming, personable, knowledgeable, unpretentious. A former opera singer, she knew her subject inside out and was unfailingly enthusiastic.
She will be very widely missed and hard to replace. Our sympathies to her family. First appreciation here.
