wo members of Metro
Detroit's Jewish commu-
nity were honored by the
National Academy of Television Arts
and Sciences with one of the television
industry's highest awards.
Marla Drutz,
WDIV-TV's vice
president and gener-
al manager, and Paul
Gross, WDIV-TV's
meteorologist and
executive producer
of weather, were two
Marla Drutz
of six people from
Michigan honored
with the Silver
Circle Award last
month at the
Townsend Hotel in
Birmingham. This
national award rec-
ognizes significant
contributions made
to the television
industry over careers spanning at least
25 years.
Drutz joined WDIV in 2008, after
spending 19 years at crosstown
rival WXYZ-TV, where she was pro-
gram director. She has been director
of marketing at WJBK-TV, and a

sales account executive at WJW-
TV in Cleveland, where she started
her career in 1982 as a research
analyst. Her numerous professional
awards include Emmy Awards, first-
place awards from the Michigan
Association of Broadcasters and a
"Top Woman in Management" award
from the Detroit Chapter of American
Women in Radio and Television.
Gross has worked his entire 26-year
career at WDIV-TV. The American
Meteorological Society asked him to
chair a national committee charged
with teaching broadcast meteorolo-
gists how to become better "station
scientists." He is on the board of direc-
tors of the International Association of
Broadcast Meteorology.
His documentary Forecast: Overlord,
about the weather's impact on D-
Day in World War II, was deemed
so historically significant, it was
added to the D-Day archives at the
Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential
Library, to the British Meteorological
Archives and to the permanent col-
lections of the Museums of Television
and Radio History in New York and
Chicago. Gross has received seven
Emmy nominations and won two
Emmy awards for his work.
