York Native Ron Martin, the longtime news reporter and anchor with WGAL News 8 team since 1983, speaks on his journalistic journey and longevity of reporting the news in our local market and discuss some insights into TV news teams and our community. Highlights include his years reporting on the York area news during this era, including the labor strife at Harley Davidson, Caterpillar, and the York riot murder trials.   
Retiring last month after four decades of journalism, Ron is a respected source of information for our community. Ron is a six-time Emmy award winner—among the many awards he’s received during his long career in broadcast journalism.  He has also been honored for his many community service contributions in the south-central Pennsylvania region.  Ron fondly recalls "hovering" in the upstairs balcony at the Yorktowne as he covered speakers presenting at Rotary.
