I came across a neat little website for area media buffs a few moments ago.
Former KODE weekend anchor Steve Tommey has a page of photos from his time in Joplin, including his days working with the weekend team consisting of Tommey, Mary Ann Croce, Russ Riesinger, and Marny Stanier. And yes, that would be the same Marny Stanier who later went on to The Weather Channel (and who is now suing The Weather Channel in federal court for age and sex discrimination in connection with her firing).
You can find the site at: http://www.stevetommey.com/tvalbum.html
Tommey is now commercial director/producer at WB 19 in Tulsa.
