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.

Search for Missing Michigan Toddler

Update:  The two-year old girl missing from her home in Tawas City was found Thursday in a heavily wooded area with the help of tracking dogs.  The girl, missing for nearly a full day when she was discovered, looked to be suffering from some cuts and bruises and possible problems associated with exposure to the cold temperatures, but is expected to recover fully.  There is still no word on how she was able to leave her house unnoticed or whether any charges will be filed against her parents.
