After nearly four decades as a reporter and anchor for KSL TV, Bruce Lindsay said goodnight to nightly viewers one final time.
Lindsay won’t have much time to relax in retirement however; he has been called to serve as president of the Australia Perth Mission of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and will move Down Under in July.
Wednesday evening’s broadcast capped a weeklong tribute to Lindsay but started with breaking news. A fugitive was caight in Kearns after being on the run since the weekend. Lindsay was visibly emotional heading into his last broadcast but simply replied, “Lets do news.”
Weatherman Kevin Eubank shared the forecast of Perth, Australia and sports anchor Rod Zundel gave Lindsay a high-five for a job well done. However, the main segment of the newscast was dedicated to celebrate Lindsay’s career. Numerous thoughts and well-wishes from colleagues were shared as well as things he will be remembered for.
Lindsay built a reputation as a good storyteller from the beginning of his career and shared that with viewers every broadcast. He was invited into thousands of homes every night and took that responsibility seriously as a trusting source of information.
In his final words, Lindsay thanked viewers for helping make some of his dreams come true during his career. He encouraged everyone to look for the good in the news and have the courage to stand up to the real problems and issues in the news.
Lindsay’s seat will be filled by BYUtv sports play-by-play announcer Dave McCann beginning next week.
