West Michigan: March 2005 Archives
Longtime News 3 anchor/reporter Jamie Boll said goodbye to his co-workers and West Michigan viewers on Friday evening. He leaves WWMT-TV (Channel 3 Kalamazoo) and moves to WBTV-TV, Jefferson-Pilot Communications' CBS affiliate in Charlotte, NC. He will anchor the station's 5 and 5:30pm newscasts and do some reporting. In a recent Kalamazoo Gazette article, Jamie says, "The big selling point is that it will be a day shift. I'll be working something like 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. I've been working nights for 10 years and I have four young children at home. I want to be there for them and go to school events, have dinner together and read a story to them before they go to bed." Boll starts his new job in Charlotte on March 21.
