Metro Detroit: Newsmakers Nov 29, 2007




Detroit News:

In a month, Grace Gilchrist will wave goodbye to co-workers and viewers alike, but her departure is bittersweet. After guiding WXYZ-TV (Channel 7) as the station's vice president and general manager for 13 years, she'll finally get to spend some quality time with her husband, son and the rest of her family, and she'll even have time now to travel to her mother's native Scotland. The 60-year-old, who has been working nonstop since the age of 18, will finally have some time to kick back and take it easy. But walking away also means not seeing the anchors, reporters and editors who have become a second family of close friends and confidants. Packing up those boxes means a new chapter will begin whether she's ready or not... Gilchrist is leaving WXYZ on her terms (Thu, 11/29)

If you tuned in to WXYZ-TV Channel 7's interview last week with WRIF-FM's Drew Lane and his girlfriend Tess Schuster , you probably sensed, as we did, that Lane is in no hurry to return to his co-hosting slot on the "Drew and Mike" morning show. Lane has been at home helping his ailing partner, who is suffering from breast cancer, since September. Co-host Mike Clark has been holding down the fort at 101.1-FM in the mornings, along with Trudi Daniels on news and producers Mike Wolters and Marc Fellhauer as foils... WRIF's Drew unsure of return to airwaves (Thu, 11/29)
