BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Our colleague, long-time Boston sports reporter Jonny Miller, is among nine local media figures being inducted into the Massachusetts Broadcasters Hall of Fame later this year.
"I'm so thrilled," Miller told WBZ NewsRadio's Chris Fama.
Miller is a tireless worker who elicited the tough answers and never backed down from anybody.
"I'm most proud of that," Miller said. "If you ask the tough question the night before, show up the next day and face the music."
Also among the inductees is WBZ-TV meteorologist Barry Burbank.
Burbank said he knew from day one where he wanted to be.
"When I was a teenager and I visited WBZ Television, I loved the studio they had," Burbank said. "So, I actually went home and built a scale model of that in my bedroom."
Miller and Burbank will be inducted along with Marjorie Arons-Barron of WCVB-TV; the late Robert Bennett, founding President and General Manager of WCVB; Boston TV38's former "Movie Loft" host Dana Hersey; former Boston 7News political commentator and reporter Andy Hiller; WBUR "All Things Considered" host Lisa Mullins; retired WWLP-TV General Manager Bill Pepin; and retired WBZ-TV photographer Richard Chase, who will also be honored with the organization's Pioneer Award.
The induction and awards luncheon will be held Friday, September 27.
