Mort Crim (born July 31, 1935 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an author and former broadcast journalist. Crim joined WDIV-TV Detroit in 1978 and he retired from anchoring TV newscasts in 1997. He also anchored at WHAS-TV in Louisville, KYW-TV in Philadelphia and WBBM-TV in Chicago. Crim was considered to be a top candidate by former ABC News president Roone Arledge to be a co-anchor for ABC's World News Tonight newscast in 1978. In 1984, he hosted a technology program on PBS, New Tech Times. Crim is also a founder of a Detroit area integrated marketing agency, Mort Crim Communications, Inc. Crim is currently working for Majic Window Company in Wixom, Michigan, and has been featured in television commercials for that company.
Crim anchored the American Information Network (ABC) program News Around The World in the late 1960s and early 1970s, as well as many other hourly newscasts.
In addition to his anchoring duties, Mort Crim also has four syndicated editorial and news features for radio: One Moment Please (originally a television feature), News You'll Care About (a five-minute news summary), Second Thoughts and American Spirit. He was also previously a substitute anchor for Paul Harvey's daily radio programs.
Crim read the eulogy at news colleague Jessica Savitch's memorial service, following her 1983 death.
Crim remains active as a keynote speaker, addressing conventions and conferences across the country. He is the author of seven books and currently is writing his eighth. He also writes and produces television documentaries—his most recent, Flight Level Seven Four and Still Climbing, an account of the solo cross-country flight he made in his light sport aircraft to celebrate his 74th birthday.
