Hard to believe that it's been a year since Flint lost one of our most respected local journalists.

This Saturday, February 25th, will mark the one-year anniversary of the death of Sam Merrill, one of Flint and Saginaw's veteran journalists and news anchors. He collapsed at his home while removing snow from his driveway and passed away shortly after, leaving behind his wife Katy, son James and many other friends, family...and loyal viewers.

The WNEM studio was recently dedicated to Sam. You can see the special ceremony that was held for him, as well as a sit-down with his widow Katy, starting tonight at 5 PM on WNEM-TV5.
