WFMY Turns 70: Sandra Hughes Made WFMY News 2 History In 1974
WFMY News 2 is celebrating 70 years and we’re going back in time! In 1974, Sandra Hughes became the first black woman to host a program by herself on WFMY News 2. The former news anchor talks about the hard times she had to overcome to pave a new way. You might not know this, but Hughes received multiple bomb threats right before her show aired. Not only that, but she often received threatening letters and phone calls.
