Over 270 radio and television broadcasters gathered at the Plaza in New York City last evening to honor Hilton H. Howell, Jr., Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Gray Television and Atlantic American Corporation, with the 2022 Golden Mike Award and Lesley Visser, the first woman sportscaster to report on all major sporting events, including Super Bowls, World Series, and the Final Four, with the 2022 Lifetime Achievement Award. The gala was a fundraiser, raising over $300,000 to support the mission of the Broadcasters Foundation of America, which provides financial assistance to broadcasters in acute need. The annual event returned this year following a one-year hiatus due to the pandemic.
