Anchor David James today announ his retirement from Raycom Media’s NBC affiliate WFIE Evansville, Ind. (DMA 103).
“After 41 years, I’m announcing my retirement from the station atop Mount Auburn Hill,” he said. “My last day anchoring the news at WFIE is Jan. 9, 2015. It’s been an emotional journey reporting both the triumphs and tragedies in my hometown. Few broadcasters have been able to stay put in one place for such a long time. I want to thank the viewers for their trust and support over the years. It’s always been my goal to be a responsible journalist and not to judge, but present the facts and all sides of a story. I look forward to new challenges and opportunities. Again, it’s been a privilege to bring the news into your homes for all these years. Thank you!”
Nick Ulmer, WFIE VP-GM, said: ”He’s been a mentor to many in journalism and a true leader in our community. He has built a long standing foundation for excellence at the 14News desk and we plan on continuing that legacy long into the future.”
