Doughtie goes for No. 1000!

Tony Doughtie will host his 1,000th sports broadcast next week during the Nash County Christmas Tournament at Rocky Mount High School.

As host of WHIG-TV's Stretchlon Sports Show taped broadcast of the girls championship game on Friday, Dec. 28, Doughtie, who has been doing radio and TV sports programs in the Twin County area for several years, will reach his milestone performance.

His first on-air broadcast was on Aug. 30, 1971 doing color commentary of Ahoskie (now Hertford County) High school football games.

Congrats, Tony!
