Two Republican candidates running for the US Senate squared off on Friday. During a debate on WKAR-TV’s Off the Record, Sandy Pensler and John James both said they were the best choice to take on incumbent Democrat Debbie Stabenow, though the candidates mostly focused on each other – not Stabenow – during the debate.

It was February 4, 1972. Don McLean’s “American Pie” was the number one single in America. Almost no one had ever heard the word “Watergate.” And Tim Skubick took the anchor desk as the host of “Off The Record” on WKAR-TV.

WKAR’s Kevin Lavery sat down with Tim Skubick to find out what’s kept his ear to the Capitol dome for more than four decades.
