Longtime TEGNA8 sports photographer Arnold Payne hand-crafts a knockout story

@unclebarkycom on Twitter
Sports anchor Dale Hansen and sports photographer Arnold Payne go almost hand-in-hand at TEGNA8.

For the most part, neither has known a sports department without the other since Hansen joined the station in spring 1983. Payne preceded him by a couple of years. So it’s both fitting and terrific that during his latest weekly Sunday night Sports Special, Hansen acknowledged Payne’s longstanding contributions to TEGNA8 before showcasing what should end up being an award-winning piece. News director Carolyn Mungo also cited Payne’s work in a Monday memo to the news room.

Payne shot, produced, edited, wrote and narrated this extended look at amateur boxer Roy Martin III, whose adversaries in life have included much more than a ring opponent. Take a look and see some real artistry -- in addition to an inspiring story.
