tough night for me personally to hear the news of Mike Hogewood passing away. got my start here at @WFMY as an intern with him. Taught me so much in this profession and would always come up and check on me when i saw him at games after he stopped working here. #RIPMIKE pic.twitter.com/F9Wa6WPXwi— Brian Hall (@bhallwfmy) September 6, 2018
