It’s the ultimate honor for a broadcaster.
That’s being inducted into the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Emmy Silver Circle tomorrow.
Six broadcasters who worked in the quad cities will be honored tomorrow night at a special ceremony at the Hotel Blackhawk.
Two of the used to work at WHBF.
Former sportscaster Don Sharp was a fixture for nearly 40 years and former news anchor Wendy Ellis, who broke a barrier as the first woman on air in the Quad Cities.
After stopping by their old stomping grounds for Local 4 News at 5, they headed to the River Bandits game where they threw out the first pitch.
Congratulations to them for this honor.
