Former WTHR and WXII Reporter Jane Harrington-Smith Dies

Jane Harrington-Smith, a former reporter for WXII in Greensboro and WTHR in Indianapolis, has died of heart failure, according to the Winston-Salem Journal. She was 62.

Harrington-Smith was the first black female reporter at WXII, where she worked for six years. At WTHR, she was the lead reporter on the Mike Tyson rape trial in 1992.

“She was a great lady and very gracious,” WXII anchor Cameron Kent told the Journal. “Our profession will really miss her. She was a great reporter; one of the best that I have ever been around.”
