Thanks to BroadcastKC.com for uncovering some interesting video from the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta where anchors Elizabeth Alex and Tom Lawrence do a wrap-up of the Olympics. The duo had just been paired together at the station.
Since that time when Alex and Lawrence first appeared things have changed pretty dramatically.
Alex now has a full-time job outside of TV and does just the 6 p.m. news at the station. Lawrence later left KSHB for a weekend anchor spot at WDAF-Fox4 and is now out of TV entirely. He most recently spent the winter as a ski instructor outside of Denver.
Anchors Jim Condelles and Lisa Robertson are long-gone from the NBC affiliate.
It was interesting to note the head of the Olympics said he felt the Atlanta Olympics were too commercial. One can only imagine what he would think about them today.
