UNDATED (WSAU) Former congressman and Green Bay T-V news anchor Jay Johnson died over the weekend.
The 66-year-old Johnson suffered a heart attack at his home near Washington D-C. He spent two years in the House. Johnson replaced the retiring Toby Roth of Appleton in 1997 before losing to Republican Mark Green. After that, Johnson spent two years as the director of the U-S Mint. And he then ran a coin-and-consulting business.
Before his election, Johnson spent 32 years as a radio and T-V reporter. He anchored the news on WFRV T-V in Green Bay from 1980-to-’86, and on WLUK T-V in Green Bay from ’87-to-’96.
