DETROIT - He's passionately known as "Titan Reggie" by the Detroit Titans faithful, but after Tuesday night, Reggie Hall will forever be known as an award winner.
Hall, a longtime sports producer and employee at WXYZ, is being honored with the John Conti Letterman of Distinction award during the University of Detroit's basketball game against Loyola Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
The award is presented to former Titan varsity athletes "who go above and beyond at work and in the community."
Hall graduated from the university after lettering three years in baseball for head coach Bob Miller from 1975-1979.
His support towards the school and its athletics programs since then has been unwavering. Nearly every men's basketball game, Reggie can be seen -- and heard -- in the stands.
"He is a regular member of the Detroit Road Scholars and has met a lot of people on the road trips from different University and those friendships continue to strengthen over the years," UDM Sports Information Director Jeremiah Hergott said in a statement.
At the workplace, Reggie has covered Stanley Cup championships, World Series, Super Bowls, NCAA Final Four titles, and NBA Finals, among many other grand events. He has spearheaded the first steps in many journalists careers, running the internship program in the 7 Sports department for over two decades.
The award doesn't come as a surprise to anyone who knows Reggie. His passion for sports extends to no boundaries, but starts - and ends - with his love of Detroit Titans basketball.
Hall will be honored during the team's game with a ceremony at midcourt. Past winners include famed coach Bob Calihan.
