Bill Harris, anchor at WEYI (NBC) & WSHM (FOX), announced last week he plans to step down from daily newscast anchoring at the end of May.
Harris has spent more than 50 years in broadcast journalism – including the last 40 years anchoring and reporting at various stations in the Flint-Saginaw television market. The nine-time Emmy award winning anchor isn’t completely stepping away from the anchor desk. He will occasionally anchor newscasts, report important news stories affecting mid-Michigan viewers, and host specials,
Harris said: “After considerable thought, I have made the difficult but correct decision that “it’s time” for Bill Harris.
“After 47 years as a full time news anchor, I will anchor my last, regularly scheduled, newscast on Friday, May 31st on FOX66 News at 10. It has been an incredible and rewarding ride and I have you the viewers to thank. Your support, your trust, your viewership, your friendship is what has made this job so rewarding and memorable for me. I and my family are eternally grateful.”
