He has helped the community in so many ways over 33 years, as well as helped us at WWAY relay vital information to the public.

Hines grew up in Wilmington and he feels honored to have gotten the opportunity to serve his hometown.

“It’s really, really special. It’s been a great profession. To be able to get up, and go to work, and get to do something you love every day is a tremendous benefit. Especially to be able to serve my community that I grew up in. It’s been great,” said Hines.
