Metro Detroit: Newsmakers Aug. 28, 2009




Detroit Free Press:

For years, Motor City commuters navigated their way to work with the help of Jackie Paige's traffic reports on "Fox 2 News Morning" on WJBK-TV (Channel 2). After today, however, Paige's energetic morning reports will be no more. "I will be staying on to do some other stuff -- feature reporting, filling in on the anchor desk, weather, the 'Made in Michigan' segments -- and you'll probably see me on the morning show, but not on a regular basis," Paige told the Free Press on Thursday. "I won't be waking up every day at 2:30 a.m.," she said with a laugh. Paige, who did traffic reports from 1994 through 1999 and then came back in 2002, said stepping away from her full-time slot was difficult ... WYCD-FM (99.5) is launching its inaugural Salvation Army Radiothon for Kids today. The radiothon, aimed at raising money for needy metro Detroit children, kicks off at 6 a.m. and concludes at 9 p.m. and will feature the country station's top personalities... Paige ends Fox traffic reports (Fri, 8/28)
