Jo Anne Paul

I worked in television and radio in Flint and Detroit, but spent the majority of my Broadcasting career in television in the Lansing, Michigan market as a news anchor for WLNS-TV 6. I began there in late 1986 as the Morning and Noon News Anchor and left only when my husband, Terry Stanton, took a job as an anchor at the number one-rated NBC affiliate in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I was subsequently hired there as well as a general assignment reporter. We moved back to Michigan when my husband was hired to be the main anchor at WLNS! I was rehired at TV 6 to assume my duties as the Morning Anchor of the daily 5:30 to 7 amnews show. I stayed there for a couple more years before leaving to do some freelance work. I eventually signed up to do a morning talk show on WJIM radio with fellow journalist Steve Gruber. The show has gained in popularity, broadcasting all over the State of Michigan and beyond! I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Broadcasting/Journalism and have worked in television, radio and print--including the Lansing State Journal and The Lansing Business Monthly Magazine. While I enjoy all "branches" of the media, I really like the immediacy of radio--being able to bring a story of breaking news to the listener within a matter of seconds. The format of news-talk also allows for a more complete discussion of topics--not just bare bones essentials. Hearing what listeners think during the call-in show is also critical to a well-rounded discussion. As I mentioned, I am married and have been for 26 years and my husband and I have three sons, Brent, Ryan and Chris. I also am an animal lover and have 3 dogs.
