Fmr. WSFA anchor Howell among new ABA Hall of Fame inductees | News
BIRMINGHAM, AL- The Alabama Broadcasters Association is set to induct its 2012 Hall of Fame class on Saturday, August 11. Former longtime WSFA 12 News anchor Bob Howell will be among those honored for their careers. Howell retired earlier in 2012 after more than 32 years at WSFA 12 News. He is now heading Alabama State University's Center for Communications and Applied Media.
Also being inducted are Carmen Brown of Mobile, Everett Holle of Birmingham and Larry Wilkins of Prattville. The fifth inductee, the 2012 Broadcaster of the Year, will be revealed at a luncheon earlier on Saturday, August 11.
Tommy Lee of Albertville/Gadsden was named the ABA's 2011 Broadcaster of the Year but, because there was not a Hall of Fame event last year, he will be recognized at the 2012 celebration.
"It was difficult to once again limit our Hall of Fame class to only a handful of incredible broadcasters," Alabama Broadcasters Association President Sharon Tinsley said, "But, these inductees are great representatives of the hundreds of talented and devoted people who came before them and those who work in our industry today."
The Alabama Broadcasters Association is the official voice of the broadcasting industry in Alabama, dedicated to protecting and enhancing broadcasting and promoting the professional status of its members.
