Face the State Flashback: Kain’s World


One of Connecticut’s most revered reporters is retiring later this spring. Dan Kain, who’s been a fixture on Channel 3 for a quarter century, is hanging up his journalist’s cap after filing hundreds and hundreds of stories from all corners of our great state.


For much of the 1990s, Dan’s unforgettable stories appeared in a segment of our news called “Kain’s World,” that aired every day at the end of Eyewitness News at 5:30. This Sunday in our Face the State flashback, you’ll see two editions of “Kain’s World that aired in the summer of 1996, introduced by Gayle King and yours truly.


The first was on a move by the West Hartford town council to ban chores on holidays. Seriously. Dan was amused by this, and put together a comical story on the subject. We also will show you a report Dan did on cicadas, which will return this summer.

You can watch both “Kain’s World” reports that aired Sunday at 11AM on Face the State, only on WFSB Channel 3 right here: http://www.wfsb.com/video?autoStart=true&topVideoCatNo=default&clipId=8897434
