- Channel 3 consumer reporter Jim Donovan has found a new way to attract an audience, one that doesn't even have to turn on a television to see him!
Donovan, in Philadelphia for about a year now, has been impressed with some of the local sites, particularly the city's murals that grace so many walls that would otherwise be bare and unprepossessing.He's encountered several of Philadelphia's more than 2,000 murals since giving up his car upon moving to the city and making the most of his excursions on foot.Obviously, a person of action, Donovan took a training course to be a docent with the Philadelphia Mural Project.Now, he can be seen on given Wednesdays and Saturdays giving tours to people who sign up to see how Philadelphians have decorated their walls.
Donovan has an affinity for tourists.One of his favorite pastimes is travel.He is particularly fond of cruises and tends to meet people with whom he stays in touch, some for years after the trip during which they became acquainted.

Looking through footage that had been lurking in my in-box, I cant believe I missed one that showed Channel 3 consumer reporter Jim Donovan on snow assignment at the art museum, becoming part of his story by using an inflatable beach float as a sled and coming down the museums steps.
Jim did a good job. He stayed true for about three-qareters of the steps length before plateauing at a landing. He had been talking to sledders who bought their floats that day, and I guess he just couldnt resist taking his own whirl.

Channel 3 consumer reporter Jim Donovan sees one or two movies a week.He chose to give his preferences among the nominees rather than offer predictions.These preferences show Jim to be a critic of taste who likes nuanced performances and interesting work.His choice for Best Picture would be "Finding Neverland," a look at playwright James Barrie as he gets inspiration for his breakthrough work, "Peter Pan," from a family he meets in London's Kensington Gardens. 'Neverland's" director was not nominated, so Donovan goes to Alexander Payne, director of "Sideways," for that nod.
For best actor, Donovan chooses Don Cheadle from "Hotel Rwanda," the powerful movie that also features his choice for best supporting actress, Sophie Okonedo.
...
For best actress, Donovan leans towards Imelda Staunton for her subtle performance as an abortionist in the days before abortion was legal in Britain in "Vera Drake."
...
CN8's Barry Nolan, host of "Backstage with Barry Nolan," is in line with Donovan when it comes to acting preferences.

Donovan launches 'On Your Side' Hotline
* Channel 3 consumer reporter Jim Donovan wants you to enlist him if you're having trouble with a contractor or any other consumer matter.
On Wednesday, Donovan launched the "On Your Side" Hotline via which viewers can call and kvetch and, perhaps, get redress for bad or incorrect jobs done in their homes.
Recently, pre-Hotline, Jim helped a woman who called him to say installers did not hang her kitchen cabinets properly.Donovan not only got the cabinets re-installed but got the woman a discount on the original price of them.

When newly-arrived Channel 3 consumer reporter Jim Donovan needs a break from troubleshooting and advocating for viewers with consumer woes, he takes off for foreign places.Donovan's current passport has 24 stamps in it, and he has been to most European cities.His most recent trip was to Hong Kong.
The Asian excursion was taken with a friend.Usually, Donovan says, he travels alone.
That doesn't mean he remains on his own.On every trip, especially cruises, Donovan says he makes friends he retains.
‘‘I stay in contact with about 50 percent of the people I meet," he said.
‘‘Being friendly has led to many an adventure.
...
Donovan has been doing consumer news since 1983.He borrows an old Channel 3 tagline when he says he prefers to present‘‘news you can use."
About 75 percent of his stories, Donovan says, are prompted by viewer calls.
‘‘I figure if one person is having a problem, then several are."
He says his aim is a win-win resolution of any problem.His spot is called‘‘Three on Your Side" and will be seen most weeknights at 11 p.m.
...
Donovan said most of his stories are short-form but that he can also do longer investigative pieces.
He also gives viewers tips about how to be better consumers.For instance, he did a spot on how to obtain, check, and if necessary correct a credit report and another how to deal with an error on a credit-card bill.
