I’ve searched the web for several years trying to find a picture of this next celebrity and finally found one! Rose Stanley started out at Futurevision Cable TV doing the local news. I was 16, she was just a bit older, and a beautiful woman, inside and out. To me she was always upbeat, professional, and fun to be around…but I never did tell her how beautiful I thought she was. I was too young and naive.
She went on to be a TV reporter and anchorwoman at KAKE TV in Wichita, KS and in the mid 1980’s conducted an interview with then President Reagan, that’s where Google has refereneces to her. However, many in the area will remember that Rose was named as a target by the infamous BTK Killer. To many in NJ and thousands in Kansas, she was a true celebrity. To me, she was a friend and someone to look up to. I know she’s not at KAKE anymore, and heard that she was with American Express for a while and also was or is still with Hoover. Side note to this entry…the podcast is not updated yet.
