Bill Green retired a couple of years ago, but he is still busy and very active with work and leisure. Bill is now the executive director of The Maine Sports Hall of Fame and as he pointed out to us when we chatted yesterday morning, he is also a proud ambassador of the Freedom Boat Club.

He also is quick to show his sense of humor. Immediately when asked how he is doing, he shows his quick thinking with an interesting answer.

And Bill is going to be a Celebrity Egg Rider in the Q106.5 Egg Ride coming up this Saturday morning.

Bill grew up in Bangor and attended Bangor High School before going to the University of Maine. Hear him shout out his lifelong friends from Bangor High during the interview.

And Bill was quick to get into the television business during college. He did that because he was working his way through college and was trying to get a job loading trucks and a guy told him that

They’re only paying minimum wage, but Channel 2 is looking for a cameraman.

Bill went on to a long career on the other side of the camera.
