WTNH’s Keith Kountz to Play in PSGC
WTNH News Anchor, Keith Kountz will be one of our special guests playing in the Promising Scholars Golf Classic. Last year, Keith celebrated 30 years as the WTNH News Anchor.
Asked recently how he got into broadcast news, Keith stated, “When I was in high school, I
wrote for the paper. When I went off to college, my college had a small TV/radio station so I
was very active in that and I always wanted to do this.” This is a great lesson for our Promising
Scholars – pursue your dreams, and take the steps to make those dreams a reality.
For guests interested in playing with Keith, we will be auctioning off that opportunity.
Stay tuned for announcements of other special guests!
