John Henning

political analyst, WBZ-TV

After two years at WGBH, he spent eight months in the Army. Then, in 1964, he was hired at what was then known as WNAC-TV (now WHDH-TV) as a street reporter. He also began covering local and national elections, something he would become known for. By 1967, WNAC promoted him to news anchor, and he did the 6pm newscast. It was during this time that he began to gain the reputation he still has to this day, as a dependable, accurate and savvy reporter who knows how to separate spin from fact. Henning left WNAC-TV in 1968, going to work for the old WHDH-TV (now WCVB-TV), Channel 5. After many years of anchoring, John stepped down from anchoring the noon news in May 1995, and WBZ-TV made him their senior correspondent, with a specialty in local and national politics. The veteran reporter also covered the State House. Henning retired from full-time reporting in 2003, but continues to do commentary for WBZ-TV and WBZ Radio, where he teams up with another political commentator, Jon Keller, to do a feature called "Eye on Politics."
