An Off-Broadway, Professional Theatre in West Bloomfield

"Dell asked me to be part of a
panel discussing a new book, The
Cinderella Complex, and that
was the turning point in my ca-
reer (from newspaper to broad-
casting). She believed in me, and
I continue to ask for her opinions.
"I remember interviewing
Gordie Howe and hearing how
Wayne Gretzky called him from
time to time to ask advice and
how that made Gordie Howe feel
each time Gretzky scored a goal;
it was like Gordie helping Gret-
zky score each of those goals. I
think it's the same way for Dell
and the younger women she has
helped."
Age has never been a barrier
to Warner. If her facelift sub-
tracted years from her appear-
ance, it added to the insight of
people reading her Detroit News
articles describing the procedure.
Lori Grundy and Jacob Gra-
ham were Warner's students at
John Robert Powers, learning
television techniques from act-
ing to announcing commercials.
Besides appreciating the infor-
mation and straightforward ap-
praisals Warner brought to the
classroom, both said they are
grateful for the confidence she
helped accentuate and the audi-
tions she scouted.
Deborah Laurie was a TV in-
tern for Warner, who helped
Laurie find full-time work in-
cluding a position at CNN. Mau-
reen Feder shared a
public-relations project with
Warner and later a friendship,
which has included professional
coaching.
Barbara Koster, a field pro-
ducer at "Good Morning Ameri-
ca," worked with Warner on
"Good Afternoon Detroit."
"Dell was always somebody to
bounce ideas off," said Koster,
who regularly keeps in touch
with her faithful friend. "I'm
Catholic, but she's my Jewish
mother. She was there to help
me plan my wedding, and she's
a constant and steady support
system."
Because Warner took some gi-
ant steps at a time when there
were few women in broadcast-
ing, she had to become her own
personal support system. With-
out college training, she learned
firsthand the importance of pub-
lic relations and was recruited
for television by a WXYZ pro-
ducer, Sandy McClure, who was
impressed by the firm way
Warner helped fight drug abuse.
Now, years and years later, as
a television broadcaster, Warn-
er continues to fight issues that
will make a difference.
"I don't recognize the fact that
I'm 71," said the grandmother
of four. "As far as I'm concerned,
I've got a big career ahead of
me." LI
