Local celebs to do sports on WFRV

If you don't like the sportscaster on WFRV-TV, Channel 5, on Monday night, hold tight. There will be a different one the next night. And the next night. And ...

Sports director Burke Griffin is letting local celebs take over his on-air duties at 6 and 10 p.m. beginning Monday. He'll introduce each one during the 6 p.m. broadcast and then they'll fly solo for the 10 p.m. sportscast (although Burke will be on set).

"People are always telling me how they'd love to do my job." Burke said. "So we figured why not give a few familiar names a shot at fulfilling a dream."

Among the fantasy fill-ins set to appear are: Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt; former Green Bay Packers Ahman Green; Lindsey Kuhn, wife of Packers fullback John Kuhn; former Packers player and current radio host Harry Sydney; WAPL-FM, 105.7 morning show co-hosts Rick and Len; former Green Bay anchorwoman Marti Spittell; Dave Steffens, Green Bay police officer; Frank Hermans of Let Me Be Frank Productions. Additional names will be announced.
