HE DOESN'T DO THE NEWS IN SHORTS ANYMORE. Ron Magers wasn't always on The Best Dressed List. One hot summer in Oregon in 1966 he anchored the news in tie, coat and (unseen behind the desk) tennis shorts. There've been other experiences, even more dramatic, that have trained him to cope with any eventuality. Some highlights: 1967 A raging Pacific storm. Magers films his report from a row boat at sea. 1968 Rioting state prisoners ask him to mediate their dispute. 1969 Sick in bed with the Asian flu, he does a report of the Asian flu. 1970 Sick again. This time from breathing in smoke as his small plane dives over a forest fire for a close-up look. 1971 Best left forgotten, 1972 Just misses being crushed by a burning building at the wharf. Watch Ron Magers tonight. It's the tough experiences that make doing the news look easy.
