Mel Showers celebrates 50th year at WKRG-TV

At the old WKRG-TV studio on St. Louis Street in downtown Mobile, Mel Showers spent his first day on the job as a booth announcer. Soon he would become a beloved reporter, anchor, and eventually an Alabama Broadcast Association Hall of Fame member. 

As Mel enters his 50th year as a broadcast journalist and 50th year at WKRG-TV, we will celebrate him Friday on News 5 at 5 o’clock and later after NCAA Basketball. 
Happy Anniversary Mel!
