Remark-a-Bull Award Recipients
Gayle Sierens is a retired news anchor on WFLA-TV, having joined the Tampa NBC affiliate in 1977. She became the first female sportscaster in the Bay Area and in 1981 was recognized by Tampa Bay Metro Magazine as the Bay Area’s best sports reporter. In 1987, she became the first (and until 2015 was still the only) woman to do play-by-play for an NFL regular season football game and has won two Emmys for reporting. After 38 years, Gayle retired from broadcasting in 2015 and has turned her efforts toward helping her community. She is on an advisory board for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Tampa, serves as chairperson for the Big Brothers/Big Sisters annual “Bowl for Kids’ Sake” fundraiser, and is a member of the board of directors of the Judeo-Christian Health Clinic.
Born in Buffalo, New York, ophthalmologist Moira J. Burke earned degrees from Vassar College and the College of Medicine at the State University of New York at Buffalo. She completed her residency at Philadelphia’s Wills Eye Hospital. In 1975, she opened her own ophthalmology practice in north Tampa. Nearly 30 years later, she joined the full-time clinical faculty at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine, teaching ophthalmology residents for six years and receiving the Award for Excellence in Surgical Teaching five times. On the sixth year, the award was renamed in her honor. In 1990, she joined the U.S. Air Force Reserve Medical Corps as a Lieutenant Colonel and was deployed during Desert Storm. She retired from clinical practice in March 2015 and now works part-time as medical director of Premier Eye Care. She has two sons, Brendan and Ryan, and four grandchildren. Her hobbies include reading, knitting, walking, piano playing, and volunteering with the Literacy Advocacy Council, USF Women in Leadership and Philanthropy, and The Chiseler’s.
