Congratulations on snagging Mr. Kolker. Why the Press let him slip away is beyond me. Perhaps he and Henry Erb can team up and bring to Grand Rapids a new era of investigative reporting -- something a little deeper than front page news about Jessica Simpson having a bad night at a DeVos Place concert. Good luck, Mr. Kolker!

His first time on TV? I have seen him half a dozen times on air and heard his voice, many times before he was on air. Time will tell. Look at Leon Hendrix, he's been on air there for a year and still stinks. When an on air personality is infront of the camera, they do the best they can, simply their best isn't so great.

Yeah it was his first time being shown on TV when GRR was talking about his tie being messed up

One word describes Ken Kolker, and that would be "traitor". He also has no concept of what real "investigative reporters" really do.

A traitor? Not sure it's such a good thing to stay aboard a sinking ship, if that's what you mean.

But from reading his bio and all the journalism awards, I would say he must know something about what a "real" investigative reporter does. If he doesn't, maybe you could clue him in? Yeah, please let us know what they do.

To grroar,

It's traitor with a capital "T". And it's not about a sinking ship, either.

Why don't you clue Ken in on what "real" investigative reporters do?

Wow, maybe he's a Russian spy. Or a double agent. What a traitor. Get a life, 4ensic1chick. Oh, wait, writing anonymous letters filled with innuendo is your life.

Hey "Forensic One Chick" i have a question for you
How do you know so much about this matter about Ken Kolker? My guess is that you used to work at the press and you think he is a traitor because he went to the biggest competition. So unless you work at the press or you used to work at the press i don't think you have any right to say any of the things you are saying.

Until you know anything more about him than I do, you also have no right to comment.

So what do you think now, after he's won several Michigan Emmys? Did you know he was miserable throughout this time cuz he was going through cancer? You all are so shallow. This still makes me mad reading this four years later.
