patharveydunphy.jpgThe duopoly is celebrating Channel 9 anchor Pat Harvey's 20 years this week. The photo of Pat with the late Jerry Dunphy came with the invitation below to everyone in the Studio City newsroom:

To all KCAL 9 and CBS 2 employees:

Please plan to join us in our news room this Friday (October 30) at 3:30 p.m. when we will celebrate Pat Harvey’s 20th anniversary at KCAL 9.

We’re baking a very special cake that you definitely will not want to miss.

Earlier in the day, Pat will be at City Hall, where the City Council is going to recognize her anniversary and career achievements by proclaiming Friday as PAT HARVEY DAY IN LOS ANGELES. Please be sure to watch NewsCentral throughout the day for all the highlights.

Oh great. Gavel-to-gavel coverage, on TV, of an anchor getting a council proclamation.
