Updated 2 years ago

We continue our look back at the remarkable career of George Hale, who, like TV5, is celebrating 60 years in broadcasting in Bangor.Jon Small had a chance to talk with George about his career.Many generations have grown up listening to George broadcast high school and UMaine sporting events.But, it was a few years after he arrived here in 1953 that local sports became part of his legacy in radio and at TV5.As George mentioned, he’s had some health problems recently, but he’s back on the radio and we hope to have him back on TV5 soon doing his commentary on Friday nights.George has been so much more than a colleague to all of us at TV5. He’s a mentor, a great inspiration and a dear friend.
