Silver Circle Inductee Darcey Gulen

Congratulations to 2016 Silver Circle inductee Darcey Gulen.Darcey Gulen

Darcey Gulen is NBC 7 San Diego’s longest tenured employee at 42 years. During this time, she’s shepherded and nurtured more television careers behind the scenes than probably anyone in town.

Gulem started out as secretary to the business manager at the station when it was Storer Broadcasting and Company. Before that, she worked with the San Diego Padres.

The cornerstone of the station, Gulen has been through two station moves, more owner and GM changes than you can count and technology changes from paper to the “cloud.”

“When disaster strikes, she feeds the station, protects the safety of crew and finds a place for us to land when our neighborhoods are evacuated,” says NBC 7 San Diego’s Assistant News Director, Chuck Westerheide, a Silver Circle member. “Her reach goes far beyond the walls of our station.”

Twist of fate? Destiny? Zigged when she should have zagged? Call it what you will… Margaret Radford became a journalist because her sister was too scared to meet the local TV anchorman who was to interview her for the job as evening receptionist. It was a summer job that didn’t pay very much but Margaret needed the job because she was working her way through college. She thought her destiny was to become a mathematician and work in this new industry called computer sciences… instead her summer job turned into a 33-year career. Margaret Radford

That first job came at age 19. She was a reporter and co-host of a morning talk show at KTUL-TV 8 in her hometown of Tulsa.

Three years later she left the rolling hills of green country Oklahoma for the sunny skies of southern California.

There, she was part of a bit of television history, as six months after joining the NBC affiliate in San Diego, the station switched affiliation and became the ABC station.

She left Channel 10 in 1989 for a job as morning anchor at KFMB. After three years of getting up before the sun, she moved on to KNSD where she got an evening anchor gig and was able to sleep in for the next 14 years.

Today Margaret works as a freelance voice over artist.
