West Michigan: Newsmakers Dec 24, 2006




Grand Rapids Press:

In the spirit of the holiday, I checked in with a few of West Michigan's TV personalities who are in different homes for the holidays. After 32 years in broadcasting, Barry Shanley, 60, former news anchor at WZZM-TV in the 1980s, is making a difference in the lives of teenagers ... Kim Covington, former WZZM-TV anchor, enjoys her new position as weekend news anchor and education reporter at station KPNX-TV (Channel 12) in Phoenix ... Former WOOD-TV (Channel 8) meteorologist Ginger Zee is enjoying life in Chi-town... Checking in with former local broadcasters (Sun 12/24)

South Bend Tribune:

The year was 1973, and Doc Severinsen, then the band leader on NBC-TV's "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson," had been selected to appear at Niles' first-ever Four Flags Area Apple Festival. Festival officials chose him in part because of the free publicity they hoped Severinsen would generate during his Tonight Show banter with Carson. But as Gloria Cooper, the voice behind Niles-based WNIL-AM radio station's "Here's Gloria'' program recalls it, local residents didn't like what they heard. Or thought they heard... Loss of Niles' radio personality may make us all a little crazy (Fri 12/22)
