|Jann Carl is a Moline High graduate, TV star.|
HAVE YOU HEARD!?!?!? (Had to use this mule shot for this post...tallest mule in North America!) I'm producing and co-hosting a show called "Small Town Big Deal".
Here's my small request...I have 1,373 Facebook Friends.....more than 525 of you have liked our show page.
Jann Carl was born on May 19, 1960 in Carthage, Mo. She attended the Missouri School of Journalism and graduated in 1982. While at Mizzou, she was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma, ODK, the Mizzou Alumni Association Student Board and was a Tiger mascot.
From Columbia, Carl moved to Chicago to begin her broadcast news career at ABC affiliate WLS-TV. She later took an offer in Los Angeles to work as a news reporter and later accepted a position as co-host of KABC’s magazine show Eye on L.A. She won three Los Angeles Emmy Awards during her time in the city. In 1996, Carl joinedEntertainment Tonight and worked as a correspondent until 2008.
Today, Carl is developing several projects as head of her own production company. She also serves as a national board member for the Muscular Dystrophy Association for which she has co-hosted an annual Labor Day Telethon for 18 years.
Jann Carl's TV show reminded me of another Moliner, Ken Berry, who starred in F Tropp and Mayberry RFD, besides appearing with Carol Burnett on the Mama's Family skits.
