Era Ends With Dennis Richmond

Our “eminent gris” newscaster will anchor his final show tomorrow night. After four decades, Dennis Richmond retires from KTVU, as planned.

Richmond’s run on the station is pretty atypical. Normally the news-anchor spots change with the seasons or ratings, but not in this case. When he started, he broke all sorts of stereotypes — and then grew into the news icon of today.

In Oakland Mag’s Best of Oakland picks, he was identified as the best male TV anchor: “In all fairness, is there really anybody else?”
