Leon Bibb & Carl Monday invited into the NATAS Gold Circle

The NATAS Central Great Lakes chapter’s Gold & Silver Circle committee is thrilled to announce that longtime Cleveland journalists Leon Bibb and Carl Monday have been invited into the chapter’s prestigious Gold Circle to mark 50 years of broadcasting excellence!

In 1971, Bibb began his television career at WTOL in Toledo, and also worked in Columbus before returning to his native Cleveland to join the team at WKYC, where he would eventually serve as evening news anchor.

From 1995 to 2017, he anchored various newscasts at WEWS, before returning to WKYC in 2018 as a senior reporter and commentator.

Monday has also worked 50 years at various television and radio stations, primarily in the Cleveland market, serving as an award-winning investigative reporter after starting out on the air on WJAN-TV in Canton while still a junior in college. Over the years, Monday has won some 50 regional Emmy® awards for his work with WJW’s “I-Team” and other investigative reporting teams across the city.

Monday and Bibb were already members of the chapter’s Silver Circle, marking more than 25 years in the business.

Their ‘graduation’ to the Gold Circle will officially be recognized by the chapter this summer.

The invitation was extended to Monday and Bibb as a surprise during the chapter’s monthly “Centered on Excellence” webinar series focused on “Superb Storytelling & Journalism That Matters” which featured both Monday and Bibb along with IU’s Anne Ryder and WXIN/WTTV’s Mike Sullivan:
