The Augusta West Rotary Club awarded on Thursday its 2013 Louis Harris Award recognizing community journalism to Mary Morrison, morning news anchor at WJBF-TV.

Morrison, who is celebrating her 25th year at WJBF, anchors Good Morning Augusta and News Channel 6 at Noon. She started as the morning news anchor in 1988 and the show was soon expanded to an hour and renamed Good Morning, Augusta, with Morrison as news anchor and producer.

In accepting the honor, Morrison thanked her coworkers, her family and the community for their support over the past quarter century.

The West Augusta Rotary Club has presented the award annually since 1979 to honor the memory of Harris, a community leader who was editor of The Augusta Chronicle and Augusta Herald from 1959 to 1978.

New Category Needed

We need a category for online commenting.

By the way, I bet a certain Omaha weatherman didn't send his congratulations.
