Happy Friday to all who celebrate! And to everyone else, may your weekends be filled with news of kittens, puppies and water-skiing squirrels.

In this week’s edition of stories we didn’t get to for one reason or another, we celebrate Women’s History Month by linking to a story from WBBM in Chicago where Susan Anderson (pictured) launched the first consumer investigative unit in the country.

Anderson began her career in 1972 as a general assignment reporter at WBBM in Chicago – and went on to start the first TV consumer investigative unit in the country and anchor the news. Her career at CBS 2 spanned 25 years, well into the 1990s. Click here to see her story.
