He might have been incredibly frugal but his stations were decent. Buddy Bostick, who founded KWTX-TV, died Wednesday at the age of 98. Here's the piece of advice he left us in 1985 on the topic of news music...

 

"Buy the music... Buy it just like you buy your cameras and like you buy your transmitters. When you buy it, you own it and you use it until it is no good and you can throw it away."

There's is absolutely no adequate way to describe Rich Fisher... Legendary, Perspective, and Quintessential. And I know Rich and the late, great Bill Bonds are now together

anchoring the news up in the good lord above. Rich Fisher's contributions throughout the entire Metro Detroit area were great and respectful. Fisher worked anchored, with

THE BEST in Detroit Television at WXYZ, WJBK and WKBD/WWJ bar none. Makupeson, Briscoe, Conway, Bonds, Lewis, Perkins, Margolis, Feldman, Zaret, Edwards,

Materre, Hodak, Glover, and many others who worked along side him. They'll never be, I mean this from the heart; they'll never another broadcaster and communicator than

Rich Fisher.

 

TVNT would like to offer our extended heartfelt thoughts, prayers and condolences to Rich Fisher's family, and his extended TV family at FOX 2 (WJBK), ABC 7 (WXYZ) and

CW 50/CBS 62 (WKBD/WWJ) in this very difficult and emotional time.

 

Rest in Peace, Rich Fisher and Godspeed.

 

Rich Fisher

(1949-2017)

Sad news out of South Bend today, it is with a heavy heart to inform you all that long time WNDU sportscaster Jeff Jeffers, The Dean of Michiana Sports has passed away

yesterday morning. Jeff worked at the South Bend's NBC affiliate (WNDU) for four decades. Jeffers cared about the television station as much as anyone ever waked in the

doors. Jeffers cared about Notre Dame Football, he had a passion about The Fighting Irish liked no other. Jeff was inducted into the Indiana Football hall of Fame in 2008 for

his life work covering and supporting the growth of the game he loved, it was an honor he cherished.

 

TVNT would like to take this time to offer our sincere thoughts, prayers, and condolences to Jeff wife Leslie, his four adorable children Leah Ann, Scott, Ryan and Kelly and

to Jeff extended family at WNDU NewsCenter 16 in this very difficult and emotional time.
