“No one knows West Michigan like Lee does,” WZZM news director Taz Painter said in a statement. “Our Watchdog team couldn’t be in better hands.”
LaFave comes to WZZM from KTAL in Shreveport, LA, where he was an anchor. He has also worked in Lansing, MI, Duluth, MN, and Bozeman, MT.
WZZM president and GM Janet Mason said, “There are so many things we like about Nick: his passion for telling good stories, his involvement in community organizations, and his love for his home state of Michigan.”
