DENVER (AP) — Denver television news anchor Mike Landess is signing off after 50 years in broadcast journalism.

Landess’ last newscast will be Thursday’s 10 p.m. broadcast on KMGH-TV.

Landess began his broadcast career as a high school senior in Tyler, Texas and has also worked for stations in Dallas, Cleveland, Atlanta and Washington D.C., covering stories including the Sept. 11 attacks. He began his career at KLIF radio in Dallas and worked at WFAA-TV for three years. 

He has spent more than half his career in Denver. He worked for KUSA with Ed Sardella in Denver for 16 years starting in 1977 before returning to the city to work for KMGH in 2002, covering wildfires, the Aurora theater shooting and last year’s flooding.

Landess has won more than two dozen Emmy Awards, including five for best anchor.
