Wow. That was poorly written.

The article says he’s referred to as “The Dean of Mid-Michigan News Anchors.” Then, it says a newspaper called him, “The Dean of Mid-Michigan News Anchors” despite no evidence of any newspaper ever calling him that. Nice.

It downplays his involvement with police. That’s timely (look it up) and convenient. It said he was the news director of ABC12. Nice.

Just a train wreck all around.

Zero stories he broke.

You sound jealous, Lovin. You’re the only person who isn’t happy for Bill.

Plus, CMU Professor Rick Sykes is also being inducted. He’s taught many young journalists, giving them a start in TV broadcasting. Congrats to him as well!

Amazing how an esteemed journalist who has been in this market for 40+ years and has several awards still has one loser that wants to piss on his high honor.

Congrats to Bill Harris. It’s a well deserved honor

Terry Camp broke more news stories this morning than Harris has his entire career.

"High honor"? The MAB Hall of Fame? :rollin :rollin :rollin

Why not do what journalists are supposed to do and tell the truth? He buddied up to police departments and provided free positive publicity his entire career without ever exposing any corruption despite his wife being a 911 dispatcher and knowing more about cops than any other newsperson. He refused to be critical of police despite that being a requirement for a journalist. Holding the powerful accountable is a requirement, not a suggestion.

Oh, but that fact is downplayed in the write-up for the MAB award given the current situation with cops. Calling them "first responders" since "cops" and "police" doesn't play well now and may tarnish his already pro-police career. Why not tell the truth all the time regardless of current events?

Oh, and he called himself the "Dean of Mid-Michigan News Anchors." No newspaper ever called him that unless it was quoting himself calling himself that.

Lovin: get your facts right. The Saginaw News called Bill the “Dean”.

As far as Terry is concerned, he also deserves induction in to the Hall of Fame. One of the nicest and hardest working journalists in Flint-Saginaw.

Congratulations to Mr. Harris.

LL101: If you believe that the MAB Hall of Fame isn't a high honor in the state for broadcasters, then please share with us, in general terms, what comparable successes you've achieved in your life.
