Reggie Hall was a titan in the Detroit sports community, a Titan on the baseball field, and he's again a finalist for the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame.

The longtime WXYZ sports producer, who died in 2015 at the age of 58, spent 26 years at Broadcast House. He spent 30 years in the business.

Hall covered nearly every big event in sports, from the Final Four to NBA championships to the Stanley Cup Final. He had a hand in WXYZ's award-winning sports coverage in a career that lasted decades.

The Detroit native was the right-hand man to Don Shane, Dave LewAllen, Fred Heumann, Jay Berry, Tom Leyden, Vic Faust, David Solano, Brad Galli, Justin Rose, Kacie Hollins, and every other person who stepped into the WXYZ sports office during his tenure.

The list of interns he guided includes NFL Network's Scott Hanson, Fox Sports Detroit's Mickey York, Denver Broncos reporter Matt Boyer, 971's Brian Chapman and Mike Ventimiglio, Michigan women's basketball assistant Dan Dardarian, Alyssa Adams of CBS Philadelphia, Galli, Jeanna Trotman, Meghan Brennan, Altitude TV's Lauren Jbara,'s Alex Tekip, CBS News' Adam Brewster, Dallas Morning News' Michael Florek, and NBC Fort Wayne's Chris Ryan. Honestly, compiling a list is a disservice to the many influential people Reggie has guided - who someone got left off this brief summary.

In 2013, Reggie was honored when he received the prestigious John Conti Letterman of Distinction Award from the UDM Athletic Department.

He played baseball at Detroit Mercy, then University of Detroit, from 1975-1979, earning three varsity letters. He was a key supporter of Titan athletics, and there remains a 'Reggie's Corner' sign at Calihan Hall.
