I've watched Bill for over thirty years and I'm surely gonna miss him. We wish him the best.

Viewer from Sylacauga

Me and a lot more people down here love him to death. And, he's the true definition of a christian southern gentleman.

Ann M. from Cleveland

I have certainly enjoyed watching Mr. Bill on tv. We left Alabama for a few years and came back and it was refreshing to see a familiar face on a tv station. Thank you Mr. Bill for many years of pleasure watching you.

Ona from Center Point

I've been here a long time from Germany and I have watched Mr. Bolen all these years. He is very very wonderful person.

Michelle L. from Pelham

I'm calling about Bill Bolen. We love all of FOX6 newscasters, reporters, journalists, everybody he will be very missed. We hate that he's leaving.

Martha N. from Perry County

I enjoy looking at him on FOX6. Tell him to take care of himself.

Gary from Empire

I just wanted to give the comment I've watched Mr. Bolen since he first started at FOX6 in 1968. For 42 years I've watched him. He is a wonderful man. He is a very caring giving person, a christian man. I know he deserves to retire and go on with his life. We sure are going to miss him. Thank you Mr. Bill for all your kindness and love you've shown over the years to people.

Liz T. from Inglenook

Just wanted to respond to the manager's editorial on Bill Bolen and just say, I second that, I third it, fourth it and fifth it. Bill Bolen has been a excellent man of integrity that I've enjoyed watching over the years. He is my and always has been my favorite newscaster.
