Breakaway Moment: Wayne Bennett's Farewell
Last night on News Leader 9 at 6/5c, the news team surrounded Wayne as he said goodbye. That was also his final newscast. Wayne took off his tie and said, "I won't be wearing this unless I'm going to a funeral and hopefully it's not for me." Today, Wayne had a going-away party at Country's Barbecue. He and his wife, Betty, will be moving to the Dominic Republic. He'd been at WTVM for 20 years.
