Beth Fisher

bethkramer Beth FisherIt has always been fascinating to me to learn about what’s going on in the world and there’s always a lot going on in Metro Detroit.  Whether it’s health, business, politics, sports, or stories about life, I love meeting people and telling their stories.  Some of my favorite stories are the ones that make you and me laugh!  It’s been my pleasure to tell those stories on WWJ since 1997….working with a great group of people who are smart and funny!

I grew up in Mansfield, Ohio and graduated from Iowa State University with a Journalism degree.  My first job was in Marietta, Ohio where I got to do everything including a call-in show where people would try to sell items like you would now on the internet!  From there, I worked at WOHO/3WM in Toledo and met my husband, Ed Coury, who now does the Wall Street Journal reports on WWJ.  We both worked at WWWE (now WTAM) in Cleveland and I spent a couple of years prior to that at W-E-R-E … always working as a reporter, news anchor, and assignment editor.

We have two children who keep us busy.  We also have a Golden Retriever, who thinks I work for her! In my spare time, I play tennis, go to  movies, and spend time with friends and family.
