Congratulations Maggie Wade, chosen best newscaster by the Jackson Free Press!

"If you watch WLBT-TV3, you know the familiar face of a woman who is small in stature and height.  Yet, Maggie Wade's presence on television and in the community is large.  She is one of the main reasons many viewers tune in to WLBT's 5 and 10pm reports."

"Both her laugh and smile are familiar and make viewers feel comfortable when she reports the news without an air of superiority. But it is her work with foster children in Jackson that makes her shine abouve the rest. "

"In addition to reporting the news each week she spotlights a different child or family of children who need a home, or follows up on children adopted after she spotlighted them.  The mother of two, committed more to what matters than sensationalism, is the type of newscaster Jacksonians clearly would like to see more often. "  - Shannon L. Buckley

Congratulations Howard Ballou, chosen second best in the newscaster category by the Jackson Free Press!
