Terry Bulger, WSMV-Channel 4

Terry Bulger has the unique gift of making the commonplace seem one-of-a-kind. His "Bulger's Backroads" feature on WSMV is a daily instructional on how the ordinary people and places around us have extraordinary qualities. Whether crafting a slice-of-history piece about the civil-rights struggle in Nashville or exploring how the town of Dull, Tenn., got its name, Bulger makes the kind of TV news that seems more precious every year—the kind that is intensely specific to a people and an area, requiring an understanding you can't pick up from a Wikipedia entry. His celluloid yarns have earned him eight Emmys, dozens of regional awards and a dedicated core of loyal viewers. We hope he keeps spinning them for a long time to come. —P.J. TOBIA
