Greece, N.Y. --- On Thursday at 9 p.m. 13WHAM News presents an hour-long look at “13 Stories In 50 Years” of broadcasting.
The list was compiled with collaboration from the some of the most veteran reports and journalists in Rochester, all working at 13WHAM.
On Monday Sports Director Mike Catalana shared a sneak peak at one of the stories he covered that made our top list.
The story focuses on Jason McElwain better known to the world as “J-Mac.” In 2006 as the manager for the Greece Athena High School Basketball team “J-Mac” was given about four minutes of playing time at the end of one game.
J-Mac, a beloved member of that team, is also diagnosed as a highly functional form of autism.
In those few minutes of playing time J-Mac scored 20 points including a team record six 3-pointers.
13WHAM’s Mike Catalana was the first to tell his story before it received international acclaim.
