Bonnie Schneider - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Bonnie Schneider

KPLC was a wonderful place to start my career ten years ago! When James Smith called and said he was going to hire me, I remember I had tears in my eyes because I was so excited. The friends I made there were so special too. We had so much fun in the newsroom, that it didn't even seem like work. Miss Jackie, Miranda, David, Russell, Cynthia, Corey, Robby...we were always laughing. I'll never forget my goodbye party at "The Doll House". Jackie saying.."You never been to the Doll House, Miss Bonnie? You're in for something SPECIAL!" And it was. Great memories! Thanks to KPLC and happy 50th!

Love, (Miss) Bonnie
