Curt Briggs

TV engineering. One of WXYZ-TV expert and professional videographers.  Curt was an amazing individual always there to capture the breaking news.

WXYZ Staff Ski Trip to Lower Northern Michigan

One of the many staff outings that the staff of WXYZ went on during the 1970s and 1980s.  There was a strong sense of "family" and cooperation as they not only worked together, but played together.

Curt Briggs on Assignment

Just another day on assignment at WXYZ-TV, Southfield, Michigan.  In the 1990s, the amount of equipment that crews need to "drag" around was staggering.  More recent equipment is much small and lighter.  Curt Briggs takes in stride another day shooting. Circa March 1994.

Dying To Be Happy: Discovering the Truth About Life

Dying to be Happy - Chris Stepien

A few days before Thanksgiving 2014, author Chris Stepien found himself in an oncologist s office. But he wasn't the patient. Stepien's wife, Ellen, was just beginning her battle with aggressive breast cancer. That day, while listening to the oncologist's treatment strategy, Stepien began writing Dying to Be Happy: Discovering the Truth About Life.

In the pages of this book, a brush with a life-threatening disease sparks a frank discussion on mortality. The author explores the prospects of embracing death on a daily basis versus denying it. He encourages readers to follow the advice of Jesus Christ: always be ready for the end of life. Along the way, Stepien highlights a spectrum of short, true stories where people rise above the fear of death, including the harrowing account of a child who survived the Holocaust -- Stepien's own mother.

But Dying to Be Happy is more than an anthology of grim tales and close calls. It beckons readers to admit the inescapability of death in order to find true joy in this life and the next.

There Was A Time by George Burlbaugh

There Was A TimeMy involvement with television and television news began more than a half century ago, almost by accident. Out of High School, I installed tv antennas, went to Korea in communication intelligence and ended up a tv news director and network news producer. This is a look back at some of the things I remember best.
