After three years of reporting on local news in the area, Door and Kewaunee counties will return to being just a playground for reporter Terry Kovarik and his family. Kovarik concluded his stint with DoorCountyDailyNews.com on Thursday before continuing his radio career in the Fox Cities. It is the latest stop on his journey in broadcasting, which included nearly 30 years at WFRV-TV in Green Bay. One of the topics that piqued Kovarik’s interest during his tenure included how rising water levels impacted shoreline communities in Door and Kewaunee counties. Like many of the stories he covered, he was left impressed with the resilience of the area’s residents. He hopes the sense of positivity continues.
Kovarik’s experience in broadcasting started at his alma mater of Central Michigan and moved onto WLUC-TV in Marquette, Michigan before starting in the Green Bay area in 1990. He begins his new role at WHBY-AM in the Fox Cities next week.
