Lee Thomas FOX 2 News
Lee is currently working for WJBK Fox 2 News in Southfield, Michigan as an entertainment reporter. Prior to this, he worked for WHAS 11 in Kentucky and WABC-TV in NYC before finding a home in Detroit at WJBK Fox 2.
As a broadcaster, the beginning of his career was amazing. He covered the Oscars, did a live interview with astronauts on the space station, and spent three weeks in Los Angeles during the riots. He was a correspondent on the nationally syndicated teen news program,”Channel One”. With Entertainment as his niche, he spent a short time on “Louisville Tonight Live” in Kentucky. One of the only pm magazine-style entertainment shows left in the country at the time. He went to Fan Fair in Nashville and of course The Kentucky Derby.
From there he was hired as the entertainment and feature reporter for ABC’s flagship local affiliate in NYC. He was able to talk to people like Paul Newman and Christie Brinkley while covering everything from the Grammys to the Tonys. With all of his contacts in hand, he went from reporter in NYC to weekend anchor and entertainment reporter at Fox 2.
He loves the job especially his movie review show, “CriticLee Speaking”. He always says, he may not have been born there but like the best cars in the world, he was “made in Michigan”. And that’s not just about sharing movies or entertainment magic, the people of metro Detroit have always accepted him on the merits of his work and not because of what he looked likes, no matter how much that has changed.
Early in his career, he was diagnosed with vitiligo, an autoimmune disease that destroys skin pigment. As a television broadcaster that could mean disaster, but the thing that he thought would be a show stopper, turned out to be the biggest blessing in his life. My memoir “Turning White” was released through the regional publisher, Momentum Books. The attention his story got was overwhelming, words don’t seem to cover how thankful he was to them all accepting him.
