BEST TV NEWS ANCHOR - WKRG's ...

BEST TV NEWS ANCHOR - WKRG's Mel Showers When he first began working as a reporter for WKRG more than 40 years ago, Mel Showers practically slept with police and fire scanners. He often times arrived at the scene before first responders.

"In my early years, I covered the police beat, the court system, city and county commissions, the school board and general assignments," said Showers, the 2013 Nappie award winner for Best Anchor. He said chasing sirens remains his favorite thing about the profession.
In the newsroom when the cameras turn off, Showers says that sometimes it is all business and other times it's just fun. "We have serious discussions about the issues of the day, but we are also known to spice things up with a raunchy joke or two," Showers said. When asked if he wore shorts under the table Showers said no. "There are anchors who wear shorts and other surprising clothing ensembles under the anchor desk, but I am not one of them. One look at my 'odd-shaped' legs and you would understand why," Showers said. When he is not behind the anchor desk, Showers is either watching football or cooking. Depending on the game, Showers can be decked out in familiar crimson and white, orange and blue or even South Alabama's blue, white and red. He likes it all.
