Newscaster, Lima native achieves hall of fame entry

BLUFFTON, Ohio - Longtime newscaster and Lima native Hugh Downs is to be inducted into the Ohio Foundation of Independent Colleges' Hall of Excellence Wednesday in Columbus.

Mr. Downs, who anchored the ABC News program 20/20 from 1978 to 1999, attended the former Bluffton College for two years in the late 1930s. He has written 10 books, most recently Letter to a Great-Grandson, which was inspired by his grandson's son.

The foundation's Hall of Excellence recognizes alumni of member colleges and universities whose lifetime achievements exemplify the traditions, ideals, strengths, and values of private colleges.
