You hear his wit on the Truman Show. You've read his articles in local newspapers for many years. And now, Dan Whittle will soon be a member of the Tennessee Journalism Hall of Fame.
Whittle will be one of the seven 2018 inductees in the hall's sixth class since being formed. In fact, Dan was co-founder of the organization, which partners with Middle Tennessee State University to recognize journalism across the state.
Other inductees include longtime News 2 anchor Bob Mueller, East Tennessee cartoonist Charlie Daniel, Frank Gibson, Les Leverett, Randy Smith and the late Jerry Thompson.
