2004 August -- Ann Karrick, TV Host/Producer -- PAX TV
CONNECTICUT'S ANN KARRICK NAMED NEW TV HOST
FOR PAX TELEVISION NETWORK
Local Television and Radio Personality to Host and Produce National Television Show
WESTPORT, Conn., August 2004 -- Connecticut's own Ann Karrick -- a popular local television and radio personality -- is the new host and producer of For The Record, a national weekly talk show on the PAX television network. Karrick was selected to host For The Record as the show was converted from a local Connecticut-focused show to a national-interest show. For The Record is available to all PAX affiliate stations nationwide, and is seen in as many as 65 cities across the country. Karrick was chosen for the position because of her many experiences on the air, in the newsroom, in the business world, and in life.
For The Record focuses on a variety of issues, including those related to business, health, education, politics, finances and financial markets, community resources, technology, the environment, and exploration. Guests scheduled to appear on For The Record in the near future include Dr. Robert Ballard (Mystic Aquarium & Institute for Exploration), Christopher Shays (US Congressman), and Diane Farrell (1st Selectman & candidate for congress). Former guests of the show include Debbie Reynolds, Mark Summers, Charlie Daniels, Ralph Nadar, Jeff Getty, Karen Duffy, Al Roker, and Nora Hayden.
Karrick recently served as an hurricane-preparedness expert for television, radio and newspaper in Hartford, Conn., Bridgeport, Conn., and Fort Lauderdale, Fla., sharing her knowledge as a Hurricane Andrew survivor and six-year resident of Miami and South Florida. In The Fairfield County Weekly's 2003 Best Local Radio Personality poll, Karrick placed third.
In addition to hosting and producing the PAX television show, Karrick does on-air freelance work for several radio stations in New York and Connecticut -- including 103.9-WFAS, 1230-AM WFAS, WEBE-108, and 600-WICC -- hosting morning and music shows, and doing newscasts and traffic reports. Karrick was an afternoon talk show host on 600-WICC during the Afternoon Idol competition. Previously, Karrick was a morning show co-host on Q105 (WQGN) in New London, and has worked on several other stations in Connecticut.
Karrick is a graduate of Hollins University in Roanoke, Va. and Joel Barlow High School in Redding, Conn. She also is a member of Westport's Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program.
