Bud Hedinger Interview
Published: Dec 2018
It didn’t take long for John Harris Brady Hedinger III to become Bud. His mother, Annorah, gave him the nickname on the day he was born – Jan. 23, 1947 – in suburban Glen Rock, N.J. Hedinger, the 10 p.m. news anchor on WKCF-Channel 18, calls the decision an act of diplomacy “worthy of Henry Kissinger.”
“My grandfather wanted to call me ‘Trip,’ for Triple, because I was the third John Harris Brady,” Hedinger remembers. “My mother didn’t like it, so she found a middle ground. Bud was the name that my grandfather called my dad.” In addition to preventing Hedinger from growing up in the psychedelic 1960s with the unfortunate name of Trip, Annorah’s name fit. The guy is undeniably a “Bud.”
“He is just regular people,” said Jim Phillips, manager of the Ace Hardware store in Forest City that Hedinger visits roughly twice a week. “What’s absolutely amazing about him is how comfortable he is. He’s been around Orlando off and on forever.”After being shuffled aside by two Orlando stations in the past 10 years, Hedinger, 52, is comfortable on WKCF. The station is building its news image around the anchor, who stars in a series of TV and radio ads telling humorous and often self-deprecating anecdotes from three decades in TV news.
