EUGENE, Ore. - When Jennifer Winters started in TV news, she was 21.
In the early 1990s, she worked in Medford and Portland before settling in Eugene.
Reporters wrote scripts with a typewriter on carbon copy paper. They didn't use computers or cell phones.
And then there was the fashion: big coats and even bigger shoulder pads.
Not to mention the hairstyles: remember bangs and helmet hair? Some things it's nice to forget.
At KVAL News, where Winters worked for 16 years, John Doyle helped Winters catch her anchoring stride.
And viewers watched as Winters went through two pregnancies, one with twins.
Everyone changes over time, but folks like Winter who bring you the news just happen to have a nightly record all along the way.
KVAL News is saying goodbye this week to Jennifer Winters, who is leaving the news business for a position in marketing. This Wednesday, Feb. 29, 2012, will be her last day.
