Christian Zamora, writer for Buzzfeed, was contacted by one of Hunter’s former co-workers via text message. That’s how he received the news of the cereal icon’s retirement.
You see, Zamora actually wrote an article about Hunter in May of 2016.
And according to the co-worker, Hunter was definitely excited to have seen and read Zamora’s previous article — in which he called her the “People’s Queen.”
As a look back into her time with the Post brand, Ebony reports as follows.
“Hunter began her time with the Post division helping to concoct the sweet and fibery goodness that is Honey Bunches of Oats at a factory in Battle Creek, Michigan. The jubilant personality we see in the cereal’s commercials is likely the reason the corporation chose to give Hunter the grandest of promotions by making her the face of the brand in 2015.”
GUYS! I was just informed that it was the Honey Bunches of Oats lady's last day on Friday! Wow. End of an era. Happy retirement, Diana! pic.twitter.com/D46F0tl0Y4

According to Buzzfeed‘s article, the source also made mention of Progressive Auto Insurance’s “Flo” character and how she’s also a public icon when it comes to a public company.
However, in contrast, Buzzfeed notes that — unlike “Flo” — Diana Hunter actually put in work for the company she promoted.
Like, she literally put in decades with Post.
All in all, a big CONGRATULATIONS goes out to Diana Hunter for her many years of making our mornings bright!
Definitely, enjoy your retirement.
