Grand Rapids Station to Launch New Show

By Kevin Eck 

Grand Rapids ABC affiliate WZZM says it’s revamping its 9 a.m. show and calling it My West Michigan.

The show will be a “fresh and exciting combination of news, entertainment and lifestyles” hosted by anchors Jennifer Pascua and Lauren Stanton.

“We are taking Catherine and the best guests from Take Five and combining them with all of the resources of the news department to create a new exciting hour,” said WZZM president and gm Janet Mason.


Take Five & Company was the previous incarnation of the show.

“Lauren and Jennifer have the proven ability to cover breaking news and have fun,” said Taz Painter, WZZM news director. “On many days, they’ll be doing both during My West Michigan.”
