A Savannah-based news anchor’s death in a tragic accident has left colleagues and the local community stunned.
Don Logana, who was an investigative reporter and morning news anchor for WTOC-TV in Savannah, lost his life in a car accident about 4 a.m. Sunday.
The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s Major Accident Investigation team was investigating an accident on the South Carolina side of the Talmadge Bridge. Police informed the Savannah Morning News that a blue pickup and a red four-door sedan crashed head-on.
Logana had worked at WTOC for more than a decade following a career in New York. He began anchoring the morning news with Cyreia Sandlin after anchor Mike Manhatton lost his battle with cancer in 2014.
Sandlin and Logana’s desks were next to one another in the newsroom, giving the pair time to develop a chemistry long before they began co-anchoring the morning show together.
Sonny Dixon, a retired anchor, described Logana as tireless and an active participant in the community. He worked to raise money for multiple sclerosis and other issues.
Logana was the recipient of multiple awards. Most recently, he was voted Best Local TV News Anchor 2016 by Connect Savannah.
Logana also participated in “Savannah Dancing with the Stars” a few years back. He was raising money for Court Appointed Special Advocates – for abused and neglected children.
