Maine's Dick Johnson

Dick had what I thought was an odd, somewhat halting style of delivery that
made him stand out --- nothing of the smoothness that characterizes most
newscasters nowadays.  But that was also what made him unique.  And he was a
darned good, thorough reporter.  You're right --- WGAN, without him, just
seems wrong.  I've been in Maine 30 years and he was the station's one
constant in all that time, through changes in ownership, formats and many
other staff.

I wonder what it must have been like for him to do newscasts for WZAN,
formerly 'GAN's perennial rival
WCSH?   What an interesting irony.

Requiescat in pacem, Dick.  You're going to be missed.
