The Best of Savannah

Best Local News Anchor

Don Logana, WTOC

Drunk driving tragedies are never easy to deal with. But they come as an especially cruel blow when the victim is a journalist of the repute of the late Don Logana, killed on Highway 17 in South Carolina at about 4 a.m. Nov. 20, 2016.

Logana wasn’t only a topflight reporter and on-air personality. He made friends everywhere he went, through a combination of his large and reassuring physical presence, and his larger-than-life charisma and garrulous friendliness.

He had worked for WTOC for over a decade. Ironically, he took over the anchor spot from Mike Manhatton, also a beloved local journalist who left us too early, after a bout with cancer.

Logana’s last report was on the tragic death of a local firefighter who passed away responding to a bizarre dock accident on the Savannah River.

Both drivers that night of the fatal crash were charged with DUI: Cleveland Antwan Coleman, driver of the other car, as well as Eric Richter, who was driving the car Logana was in, in the backseat.

Runner-up, Anchor: Dawn Baker, WTOC
