13's Kelly Ring: The Reluctant Anchor in Tampa PROFILE appeared first on By Bob Andelman: Books and Article Archive for Bob Andelman.
Kelly Ring (WTVT, Tampa Bay, Ch. 13) Kelly Ring (WTVT, Tampa Bay, Ch. 13) But being a talking head on the evening news is about the last thing on earth Kelly Ring ever envisioned for herself. 13 a few years ago, Kelly Ring was a no-nonsense reporter from the highly respected University of Missouri School of Journalism with a special talent for tapping into Tampa Bay's most heartbreaking stories. She and cameraman Brad Wasson were an inseparable team for years, winning two Emmys in 1989 for "The Tarnished Years," a series and documentary about mistreatment of the elderly. They spent three months with an Health and Rehabilitative Services (HRS) investigator, investigating abuse in nursing homes. (Ring won a third Emmy that year for a collection of stories.) "You don't find individuals that look the way Kelly does that possess the reportorial skills that she does," says Bob Franklin, vice president of news and operations at WTVT. "That was the first big story I did here," recalls Ring. The Rays developed a personal relationship with Ring that continues today even though other Ch. We got real close to Kelly. Kelly projects a sense of vulnerability that makes people want to be nice to her." "It was the best assignment I ever had," says Ring. There is a good deal of joking and laughter around these two and producer John Hoffman (Kelly is continuously fixing him up with blind dates) as the afternoon wears on and the big broadcast draws nearer. But he is also someone I can tell anything to," says Ring. "He's a great friend." On the set, anything can happen. A minute to air, Ring holds up a hand mirror and touches up her hair. Once the theme music rolls, the anchors put on their game faces and begin. Cameramen wad up pieces of paper and shoot baskets at a trash can. While Roy Leep does the weather, Kelly and Frank talk to Andy. One day Kelly spent the afternoon showing someone's 10-year-old child around the newsroom. During the 5 o'clock news, anchors Kathy Fountain and Denise White turned to Frank and Kelly in the newsroom to ask what stories were coming up at 6. "I said 'orgasm' over the air instead of organism," recalls Ring, blushing. It isn't easy to maintain eye contact with Kelly Ring. As beautiful as those steely blue eyes are, a man can't help but take in all of her. She dresses like a vibrant young woman, unafraid of high heels, short skirts, plunging necklines. There's no forgetting this 30-year-old is at the height of her powers and appeal. Over grilled chicken sandwiches at Jimmy Mac's in Tampa, it's apparent to everyone but Kelly what a sensation she creates by simply entering the dining room. She's oblivious to the stares - from men and women alike - but people can't seem to contain their impulse to study and admire her. Kelly Ring's mother dated Elvis for a year. Bonnie gave up full-time singing and touring to raise Kelly and her sister Robin. Kelly was apparently more impressed by her daddy's medical office as a child than with her mother's famous country music friends. "I love to tell this story," says Mrs. Ring. "In a doctor's clinic, you always have pictures of the human body. That's how Kelly found out there was a difference between males and females. Mrs. Ring remembers her eldest daughter as very inquisitive. "She was always asking questions. I should have known she was going to be a reporter. She had to know about everything." If Kelly is considered a beauty today, she and her mother agree it wasn't always that way. She was a tomboy for years, envying the boys and their toy guns and boots, playing catcher on a softball team. Kelly stood out in high school. Editor of the yearbook. "It's kind of a luxury," says Ring, who needs Palmieri's guidance. "When they introduced me to Kelly Ring," says Palmieri, "I said, 'Geez, if they're all like this, it's easy.' The only other person as beautiful I have had to work with was Brooke Shields." "I don't think I'm in her league," says Ring, more than a little embarrassed. Last winter, Ring received a most unusual call from a teacher at Sandy Lane Elementary School in Clearwater. Walking down the hall of Sandy Lane with principal Frank Garcia, Ring is the object of much affection and many a startled gaze from students and teachers alike. When it is her turn to speak, Ring steps down from the stage and into the crush of schoolchildren sitting cross-legged on the floor. "When I was your age," she tells them, "I started writing in school. At the time, Ring was seeing WYNF morning man Ron Diaz, a buddy of Zucco's. Not Kelly. "I have two daughters and every time they call home, I say 'tick-tock, tick-tock,'" admits Mrs. Ring. "Every time I go home, they bring it up," Kelly confirms. 13, Kelly Ring was a weekend anchor and weekday reporter. He pushed her into the morning slot and then the 5 o'clock position. Franklin risked a lot on Ring but never looked back. Kelly, first and foremost, is a reporter. All that's well and good for Ring. She's popular, instantly recognizable wherever she goes and drives a nice car. But it all means nothing if she loses the ability to get out in the field once in a while and put in an honest day's work as a reporter. "I came to 13 as a reporter. I had no desire to be an anchor," reiterates Ring. "I'm still not totally confident with it. You Wanted to Know About Kelly Ring * She has an autographed picture of the anchor of the CBS Evening News on her desk. It reads: "Kelly, Courage - Dan Rather." * She has a kitten named "Peg Bundy." * She can't cook. * She calls everyone "honey. Another favorite expression: "Oh, QUIT it!" It's still full of her dolls, stuffed animals, books and awards because her mother hopes to show it off to grandchildren one day (if Kelly ever takes the hint). "The greatest difference between Kelly and her mom is her mom sings like an angel and Kelly can't sing to save her life. - Philip Metlin, former WTVT executive news producer "Last year when there was a baseball strike and spring training was shortened, Kelly got confused about how many games there were in a season vs. during spring training. Her name is Kelly. sittin' next to Kelly. And Kelly begins to slide ... slowly ... slowly ... across the couch toward me ... (Singing again) She tells the photographer to take a hike. She puts down her microphone and says, 'You, I like.' whose name is Kelly ... (Spoken) Some men worry about the girl of their dreams leaving them for another man. I worry mine will leave me for another market. Kelly, don't go baby, you mean more to me than the news itself ...
