Greg Bowman is being awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Michigan Associated Press this Saturday.

Bowman started his career at the University of Michigan Radio station in the ’70’s. He says he saw the sign for the station and thought he’d give it a try.

Longevity? “I think maybe, no one else wants me!” he joked, in an interview with WWJ’s Marie Osborne.

It’s Bowman’s self-deprecating humor that is well-known and well-loved here at WWJ. He says staying in one place for most of your career gives you the “home-town” advantage. He says he thinks listeners learn to trust those who have a strong history in the community.

His  first love is his wife and four children. His last two children, twins, was born in January.

Baseball and community theatre are the other loves of his life. Bowman recently had the opportunity to play Atticus Finch in a local production of “To Kill A Mockingbird”. He says playing that role has been a life long dream.
