WBIR: East TN Historical Society honors Jack Hanna
(WBIR) There are some remarkable people who grow up in here and go on to do great things, and one of those people happens to be everyone’s favorite animal man, Jack Hanna.
The East Tennessee Historical Society honored Hanna as the East Tennessean of the Year.
Hanna is a Knoxville native who worked at the Knoxville Animal Clinic and grew up to become one of the faces of animal activism. He’s become a regular on the morning show and late-night circuit, but hasn’t forgotten where he started.
