We had this question come in today at our sports window and we will give you all of the names that we can remember holding down the anchor chair at WFMY TV 2 over the years and if we leave anybody out that you remember, add them in and you can then give us some of your impressions of those that are on this list and part of the question dealt with Dave Goren and to my knowledge, Dave Goren was always over at WXII TV 12 and he did not do sports for WFMY TV 2….
The names on the Sports Anchor list at WFMY TV 2 over the years….
Charlie Harville….He is the first one that I can remember and I remember him being there all the way back in the 60’s…
Woody Durham…Woody Durham was a “big name” at 2 back in the early 70’s and now he is in his 70’s, at least I think he is…
*****There were a lot of co-anchors and they might have held down the chair during some of the transition periods and that might have been the case with Johnny Phelps, where he did not have the “Sports Anchor” title, but he held down the spot during a long period of transition…*****
Other co-anchor names from the past:
+++++We do need to add this young man in here, Chip Carey and I think he now announces Atlanta Braves’ games.
Also we add-iin Jamie Baldwin, a very tall young lady that was at NEWS 2 Sports and then later on she worked for WXII TV 12+++++
+++++We really haven’t missed very many names and that name that always shines when we go back and look over our old notes, is the name of Sam Crenshaw….Sam gets a lot of love when you bring his name back up….I think Sam worked along with the Mike Hogewood/Scott Pryzwanski team and those were some good days….Bill O’Neil did the weekends for a good while on sports at WFMY TV 2 and now he has been a news reporter at WXII TV 12 for many years…..If you know of others that we have failed to mention, send those names our way….
We had an inquiry on this topic earlier today at our search stats site…..+++++
