Monday marked the last day at ABC12 news for Tom Bryson, the general manager. Bryson has been a broadcaster for 50 years. The last 26 have been spent as the GM of ABC12. Bryson sat down Monday to talk about his career and where this television station has gone during his tenure, with a laugh or two along the way.
"I started out in radio, new," Bryson said.
"He is almost like a father figure," said ABC12 anchor Bill Harris.
"In Washington D.C. I was a cub reporter and then I went to Baltimore, Maryland, in 1965. I was there in three years in television, produced the 11 p.m. and became the news director," Bryson said.
"When people ask me about Tom Bryson, I'm the first to say he's a 'news dog.' He's a newshound," Harris said... Monday marks last day at ABC12 for general manager (Mon, 2/28)
