There was likely no better showman on Detroit TV than WXYZ anchor Bill Bonds. 

While anchoring a newscast, Bonds let it be known that he could not plug Girl Scout cookies on the air because it was against company policy.

Then with plenty humor, Bonds shamelessly plugged the cookies as seen in the video below. Bonds passed away Dec. 13, 2014, after a heart attack at his home in Bloomfield Hills. He was 82.
