WILLISTON, North Dakota — Longtime Williston broadcaster Jon Cole has been elected to the North Dakota Associated Press Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association Hall of Fame.
Cole was the only one of 13 candidates to achieve the necessary 75 percent approval in the latest voting. Association members and Hall of Fame members are eligible to vote.
Cole grew up in Massachusetts. When he couldn't find a broadcasting job on the East Coast, he traveled west. He is now in his 34th year of broadcasting sports in the Williston area.
Cole has won many awards during his career, including being named North Dakota Sportscaster of the Year five times. He tells the Williston Herald that the Hall of Fame is a lifetime award, and his election made him cry.
