“This is going to be the death of me, these live shots,” Savage could be heard saying after anchor Kenny Burgamy tossed to him standing live at the Macon-Bibb County Board of elections building. Savage then stood silent for a few seconds before saying, “I’m on? Now?”
According to his station bio, Savage came to the station in 2001 after 29 years with the Macon Telegraph. He won a Pultizer Prize in 1985.
