KGW TV also has some notable alumni that includes Ann Curry (formerly of the Today Show before Matt Lauer had her axed), John Stossel (from ABC’s 20/20, and now with FOX), and Colin Cowheard (the controversial sports host, formerly with ESPN, and now with FOX Sports). Also, the KGW radio station had Mel Blanc, the man with a thousand voices.  [If you watched any cartoon from the 1930s to the 1980s, then you’ve heard Mel Blanc).
