Alex Crane is alive and well...

I came across the WXCI Memories blog quite by accident and was
surprised to see references to Alex Crane after sooo many years. Yes,
BJ was indeed Peetie.. among other things... Has anyone heard from
Kevin Hogan ? He read news... or from Joel Rabinowitz ? He did
sports at that time. We all had a blast ! I'm sorry I was unable to
attend the anniversary reunions, but seeing and hearing some of those
memories on this blogsite is just great.
It is true.. I am living in Fairfield, CT with my wife , Margo and
our son David, who is currently searching for a college for next
September (WCSU is in the list ). Time flies ! I've been teaching
Grades 3-6 in Fairfield for the past 31 years. My WXCI experience was
wonderful and has certainly helped me through the years .
Thank you for remembering.

Hey Dennis! Best to you and Margo and your son!

Next anniversary, please get in the car and drive down the 8 miles or so to the reunion. I'll pay for the gas...

I have recordings of your program drop-ins. I'll get the latest revised copy to Rich for inclusion on the Podcast site.

Glad to hear things are well with you and the family.

Channel 3's New London Bureau Chief, Kevin Hogan has been broadcasting news in Connecticut since 1973.

Born in New Haven and raised in Ansonia , Kevin got bit by the TV bug in 1959. While visiting the LIVE studio of BEAT THE CLOCK in New York, TV Game Show host Bud Collyer interviewed Kevin in the audience about his missing front teeth. A graduate of Kolbe High School in Bridgeport, Kevin continued his higher education at Western Connecticut State University in Danbury. At the College radio station WXCI-FM, Kevin's broadcast career took seed.

In addition to working radio news through college, Kevin was an intern at WNEW-TV 5 New York and "The Ten O'Clock News with Bill Jorgensen."

In 1979, Kevin anchored mornings in New Haven on WELI with veteran broadcaster Ron Rohmer. A year later he became News Director in New Haven at WAVZ & WKCI . During that tenure, he won several broadcast awards from the Associated Press and the Radio Television News Director’s Association.

In 1997, Channel 3 chose Kevin to act as the Station's Special Correspondent to cover the Pope's Historic trip to Cuba . Following that event, Kevin became a permanent part of the Channel 3 team working as an anchor and reporter.

What he enjoys most about this career? “Meeting people and hopefully doing stories that can help the community,”

On a more personal level Kevin enjoys running, kayaking, gardening, cooking, riding his Vulcan Classic motorcycle and finalizing the ground-up restoration of his 1959 MGA Roadster. Kevin and his family live near the shoreline in Southeast Connecticut.
