Retiring TV host to continue church singing

A local TV news anchor uses his vocal talents on Sundays at area churches, including St. Joseph Catholic Church in Sturgeon Bay. Kevin Rompa of WBAY TV-2 in Green Bay, who is retiring this week after 32 years as the Morning Show host, sang at St. Joseph’s this past Sunday while being accompanied by his wife Maureen on the organ. For the past ten years, the couple has helped out at numerous churches in the Green Bay Diocese on weekends, including St. Francis in Brussels and St. Louis in Dyckesville. Rompa says he enjoys performing song arrangements with his wife that are both beautiful and spiritual.

The Rompas will be bringing their musical abilities to the choir loft at St. Joseph’s again this coming Sunday, two days after Kevin’s last broadcast anchoring the morning news on Friday. A Winona, Minnesota native whose broadcast career started in 1983, Rompa plans on enjoying more singing and traveling in retirement while not having to get up at 2:30 a.m. every weekday.
