Bob Hanley
Bob Hanley's journalism career spanned 47 years with the Hamilton Spectator where earned 35 newspaper awards including three national and nine provincial honours.

Hanley covered everything from Queen's Park to Royal visits, but found his niche covering sports, where he covered the Munich Olympics in 1972, the World Cup, and games of his much loved Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

A colleague described Hanley: 'He had a sense of Old Hamilton, its history, its character, its flavour. No other writer has ever captured the essence of Hamilton the way Bob Hanley did.'

Inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame-Media Wing in 1992
