Mid-Michigan: Newsmakers Dec. 11, 2010




Lansing State Journal:

For a few hours Friday, a dream came true. Michigan State University journalism graduate Hope Springstead, who wants to become the nation's first blind news anchor, appeared on Lansing's WLNS-TV alongside anchors Jane Aldrich and Evan Pinsonnault. It was part of the station's annual Day of Giving fundraiser. It also was Springstead's first shot at live news coverage and a chance to prove what she can do.

"It is a great chance to get some real experience," said Springstead, who lives with her parents in Wyandotte. "It's great to actually get some experience, rather than just talking about it."

Springstead graduated from MSU in May with a dream of breaking into the competitive world of broadcast news. WLNS-TV invited Springstead to be part of the Day of Giving after reading about her dream in a Lansing State Journal article published Nov. 22...
