Pam Huff Remembers Wendell Harris, Who Made Her the First Female Anchor in Alabama History

Pam Huff, along with James Spann, took time during a recent ABC 33/40 newscast to remember longtime Birmingham newsman Wendell Harris, who passed away Tuesday morning.

Harris hired Huff and Spann during his time as news director at Birmingham’s WVTM, giving them both the first big breaks of their careers. When Huff was 24, Harris decided to give up his spot on the WVTM anchor desk and made her the first female nightly news anchor in the state of Alabama.

“He had faith in me, even when some viewers wondered why a woman thought she could even begin to fill his shoes,” Huff told viewers Tuesday. “For that, I will always be grateful.”
