Local media personality Harris' voice has been floating across the Tampa Bay airwaves since 1970. The co-host of the morning drive time program on WFLA-970 AM, Harris is a West Virginia native who served in the Army during the Vietnam War. Harris, one of the first members of the broadcast team for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1976, is also the author of the 2005 book Unwrapped: Ruminations, Recipes and Robust Raillery.
What's on your nightstand?
I'm about to start Unsustainable (by James MacDougald). It's a pretty serious book on politics. I also have been enjoying Bill Bryson's The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid.
Do you recommend it?
I do. He's able to really take the reader away. He writes about his childhood in this one. Also, he's very funny. I enjoy reading Dave Barry for humor, too.
