Ralph Penza was one of the finest broadcasters I've ever known.
We first met in 70's when he came to interview me at Brooklyn College. We became friends then and he honored me by inviting me to serve as consultant on church related issues.
For the past seven years he was the emcee for our Evening of Mercy, through which Sisters of Mercy raise money to continue our service to the poor and to offer scholarships to needy individuals.
May God reward Ralph for his gracious generosity and unfailing decency.
I will miss him more than words can say.

i never knew him except through my nightly invitation of him into my house when he was on WNBC.

A fine fine man and journalist.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Penza.

One of a few journalists and reporters who I had the utmost respect for. He was always very professional yet he was very human. He did his job extremely well and you did not get the impression of where he stood politically on issues. He was fair and balanced unlike most of the media.
May he rest in peace with GOD.

I had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Penza for 10 years or so. I met him and his wife while working at the animal hospital where they took their pets for care. He was a wonderful and kind hearted man who will be sadly missed.
