Don Harrison, or Disco as he’s known to friends, joined the ABC2 News team back in 1984, as a photographer. And now you’re seeing him more on air than ever before. Disco is really enjoying his new role as a Multi Media Journalist and predominantly covers Annapolis and the Eastern Shore, the area he knows best.
Disco is a graduate of Severna Park High School. He then went to the University of Maryland.
Shortly after joining WMAR in 1984, Disco moved to the Annapolis Bureau. During his decades in Annapolis he’s covered stories all over Anne Arundel County, Annapolis, the Eastern Shore, the Chesapeake Bay, and Ocean City. He’s also traveled the world covering news and sports. In 1991 for the first Gulf War, he was in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. He went to Florida for coverage after Hurricane Andrew hit, and he was in the first crew from Baltimore media to land in New Orleans after hurricane Katrina.
Disco has also spent a lot of time covering the Baltimore sports market. He went to Vancouver for the Grey Cup with the Baltimore Stallions, Orioles spring training, Ravens football and playoffs.
