WZZM Launches Watchdog Reporting Team

Gannett-owned ABC affiliate WZZM Grand Rapids, Mich. (DMA 39), has created a Watchdog Team headed by veteran reporter and anchor, Lee Van Ameyde who has been with the station for more than 36 years. Van Ameyde, the stations says, “is known in the community and professional arenas as being an advocate for those without a voice and for seeking answers on tough and controversial issues.”

Van Ameyde will continue to anchor the 6 p.m. newscast alongside co-anchor Juliet Dragos and will spend the rest of his time uncovering and reporting on stories important to West Michigan.

“You won’t see Lee on the WZZM 13 News at 11 p.m., but you will see Lee and his Watchdog team out in the community —demanding answers from our politicians, watching out for your best interests and making sure that your voice is heard,” said WZZM News Director, Stanton Tang.

A friend of mine has been victimized at Walmart in Grand Rapids Mi. Someone hacked into the debit and credit cards at Walmart. She has her paychecks routed through them. She hasn’t been paid in weeks because someone took her tax returns and paychecks. The police know about it and Walmart is stalling her on getting a new card. She has lost a ton of money due to these hackers. Walmart won’t reimburse her.
