Do You Recognize The Familiar Face In This WMTW Newscast From 1994?
With the television news industry as competitive as it is, it's quite remarkable to see news anchors maintain their position at the same station for a long amount of time. Quite often, news talent will move to different stations across the country every few years, or be pushed out by management looking for a fresh face for their station. TV news viewers have become used to seeing a new anchor at the news desk before they even got used to the last one. So it's always nice to see talent with true staying power. Case in point - WMTW's Steve Minich. He's become a fixture in the Portland television market, having been at Channel 8 for 28 years. He started there in 1991 as a sportscaster, following 11 years spent doing sports at WSYX, the ABC affiliate in Columbus, Ohio.
In this YouTube video posted by NewsActive3, we see a full 11pm WMTW newscast from 1994. It's amazing how much has changed about the station in 25 years. But one thing has remained the same - Steve Minich.
