As a long time colleague, it is with tremendous sadness to hear of the passing of retired KCBS reporter Barbara Taylor, former “dean of the press corps” at SF City Hall. Fearless, fair, funny and dogged in her pursuit of the truth. She understood city politics like few others. pic.twitter.com/zhL1UmgNTf

I’m sad to hear about the passing of a fantastic local journalist, Barbara Taylor. I can recall hearing her reports on the radio as a kid when my Mama would drive me to or from school. My idea of what a journalist should be is surely influenced by her voice and her work.

If you listened to KCBS as I did for almost a quarter-century, you heard Barbara Taylor reporting on SF politics and government. She was a journalist in the best and truest sense. Old school, no frills, no spin reporting. May she Rest In Peace.
