The Anchor that Has No Voice

We have seen TV Anchors lose their looks over the years, but one former Portland Anchor has lost his voice.

Longtime KOIN Anchor Mike Donahue is recovering from throat surgery that left him unable to speak.

During the surgery his vocal cords were damaged and he lost his voice. He’s unsure how, when or if his voice will return.

But the Anchor is taking the challenge head-on with a positive attitude.

Mike Donahue spent more than 40 years anchoring the news at KOIN until he retired in May 2012.
