Laura Bonnell is a reporter at WWJ.   When she first began working at WWJ it was as Laura Teicher.  Bonnell had the opportunity to cover Dr. Jack Kevorkian, jog with then presidential candidate Bill Clinton, work morning drive, and covering breaking news stories.  Bonnell is now back on her second tour at WWJ with most of the coworkers still here that she considers family.

 

Whatever the story — my favorite part of the job is interviewing the people of Metro Detroit (more than celebrities).

 

Bonnell says she married to Joe.  Their daughters are in college.  The girls have cystic fibrosis. Raising awareness is a family affair.  Bonnell is always trying to raise awareness and funds through her Foundation. http://www.thebonnellfoundation.orgwww.thebonnellfoundation.org   Our girls are doing great and are our inspiration!
