Doug has been a central Illinois broadcaster for 40 years.  He's worked in the Taylorville, Springfield, Decatur, Danville and Champaign-Urbana markets for 40 years.

Doug is currently Co-Anchor and Chief Weather Anchor at WICD-TV, in Champaign and Weather Anchor at WCCU-TV in Urbana.

This site is dedicated to preserving central Illinois Broadcast History.  It's being constantly updated with additions and maybe even a few revisions.  Check back often.

Be sure and include the "Cheeseburgers and Fun" event on your Summer schedule.  I'll be there serving cheeseburgers beginning at 4pm!  Hope to see you there!

I'll be at the Urbana Sweetcorn Festival on August 23rd. 

Be watching for abc/NewsChannel 15 at the various Labor
Day Weekend Parades.....the Hoopeston National Sweetcorn Parade on Saturday, and the Labor Day Parades in Danville and Westville on Monday.  I'll be there looking for you!

Videos of the Week    
Remembering the First Moon Landing and 1969

(Above):  This is a Bob Hope Show salute to Neil Armstrong after the first moon landing in 1969.  Its rare to find a gem from any Bob Hope Show broadcast.  They're all eventually challenged by Bob Hope Enterprises.  IMO, BHE is on a crusade to erase all of the TV efforts of American's 20th Century Comedian.  This one, it appears has not yet been discovered by Bob Hope Enterprises....enjoy while you can.

(Above): Continuing our look at 1969....here is a 30-minute promo for the upcoming 1969-70 NBC TV season.  This stars Hugh Downs and Joe Garagiola who hosted "Today"
