Hank Stoddard


  1. Lisa Stothard-Bernhardt

    Hank Stoddard is definitely one of the best sportscasters ever. I may be somewhat biased since he moonlights as my father as well. He has always loved his job and was passionate about reporting honestly and intelligently. He wrote all of his own copy and was never interested in just being a “talking head” in the industry. Still to this day he watches every game or match as a pro “covering” it. All sports, the athletes, the coaches, and the human interest stories behind them still grab the attention of my favorite broadcaster.

      I remember babysitting you and your brother Michael when your dad and mom and my folks used to go up to Green Bay for Packers games. You lived in a condo a few blocks from where we lived. Last time I saw your father was in Arizona, perhaps late 1980s, when I was covering spring training and he was out there doing Brewers stories for Channel 4. A great sportscaster and Milwaukee TV icon.

    Okay Lisa I am not biased and yes he was one of the best. Hope he and all your family are doing well

    I used to work at WTMJ back in the 70s. So I knew Hank. He was the best back then.

    Yes! He was the best when I grew up. I met him through my dad on a station tour when I was a second-grader, and I knew that I wanted to follow in his footsteps and become a sportscaster–and I did. He was unflappable on the air and combined credibility with personality. He was great!

  5. I grew up with Henry since we were kids. One of the nicest people you would ever want to consider your brother.
    I know Henry’s Father would have been so proud of hi.

  6. I was honored to work with Hank at WTMJ-TV. He was a great boss. He knew sports; he knew every important contact in the state. He was always very proud of his children and Nan. He was always in good spirits and he providd a ton of good times and laughs. Well done, Hank: this is a well deserved honor.

    Hey Henry …. Congratulations … you are so deserving. Back in good old Brandon, Manitoba, we have not forgotten you. I was roaming around the internet and came acreoss this interview. You are still the same Henry I knew way back when. Just thought I would touch base with you …. I will never forget you.
    All the best to you and family.

    My family were neighbors of Hank and Tracy.
    Hank was a great neighbor. Always bringing f
    food from his garden. We would listen to
    music and a have a couple cocktails over by
    Hank and Tracy. Wonderful neighbors
