The lifelong muse and immortal beloved of Tim Burton is in town for her part in Disney’s The Lone Ranger movie.
While New Mexico is known for playing it cool and letting our visiting celebs go about their b’niss uninterrupted like…Helena Bonham Carter was particularly unbothered by the kindest gentlest local celeb in town when they were face to face at our own uptown Trader Joe’s.
If she’d been a snake, she couldda bit him. But our unassuming, beloved morning radio show bearer of sunshine and light, Donnie Chase of 100.3 The Peak couldn’t have ID’d the star to save his life or hers when they recently crossed paths.
The star encounter sighting prompted a storm of celeb encounter reports on the JTD Morning Show facebook page.

UPDATE: 8/25/10 Upon further…reflection this is a very valid example of how/why we love our newsies:
Right?!? A pay per view of these smart, handsome men+ saying such things. It would make a FORTUNE!
ICYDK Your Sindicator is a bit of a local news junkie and radio show groupie…soooooooo this lil’ contest is right up my alley.
Now, NM has enough newsie cuties to fill-up multiple years worth of camp-calendars, but this here is the current line-up of news beef-cake for your voting consideration as presented by JTD of KPEK.
No, I don’t know if they’re taking write-ins, but I do know that there is a plethora of behind the news scenes goodness including a certain a lil’ sexy and a Saint just to name a few…but for now these are your contenders for The Peak’s “Hunkiest Man Hunk” of NM t.v. news:
(g’on git’ yir vote on! It’s good practice for NOVEMBER)
Early in the decade Donnie Chase may have first hit the radar of your subconscious as a blip during morning drive. The now spiffy, sweetly charming radio host then delivered drive-time traffic reports for multiple Clear Channel Radio stations and has since become the “D” in your daily dose of JTD – The Jackie, Tony & Donnie morning show on 100.3 The PEAK.
Donnie’s wit and work ethic, yes it is work to entertain y’all, have steadily made him a regional fave., even spawning an online fan club of his very own.
Year after year Chase is tapped as a fan favorite in multiple publications including the Weekly Alibi’s big annual “Best of Burque” edition. New Mexico may be the New Hollywood but Chase hasn’t let all that go to his pretty lil’ head, championing causes close to his warm fuzzy heart, lending himself to animal rescue organizations such as Watermelon Mountain Ranch – New Mexico’s largest no-kill animal shelter.
