Mid-Michigan TV Sports Anchor Marc Wesley Dead at 81

Retired TV 5 sports anchor Marc Wesley
Case Funeral Home

Marc Wesley, whose catchphrases “And that’s sports!” and “Good luck and good fishin’!” graced the airwaves of WNEM-TV 5 from 1965 to 1991, passed away Monday at the age of 81.

Many of us in the area grew up watching Marc Wesley, Chuck Waters, and Jim Peyton, (remember the Weather-Watcher Cartoons?) as they became fixtures in Mid-Michigan television.

Wesley’s was the namesake of the Saginaw County American Cancer Society’s Marc Wesley Golf Classic, which was simply called ‘The Marc.’ He was a long-time member of the Outdoor Writers of America, and the Michigan Outdoor Writers Association.

Philip Wesley Beilfuss is survived by his wife of 51 years, Susanne Hoch Beilfuss. Sympathy and memorial donations can be directed to Cartwright Hospice Residence, c/o Covenant – VNA Hospice or Bridgeport Community Church.
