Bill Worden Retiring From WKTV, Don Shipman Fills Spot

WKTV

After 35 years at WKTV, Bill Worden is retiring.  The local legend has anchored WKTV’s 6pm and 11pm newscasts since 1977.  His last day will be Thursday, November 29.

In a statement issued by the NBC affiliate, Worden said he enjoyed his run and is confident the station will continue to prosper.

I treasure my years with WKTV and the people I’ve been honored to work with, including some of the original members of the station, who were still here when I started. But, it’s simply time to do this. Television has always been about change, and being willing to adapt to that change. That’s one thing that’s kept my career going all these years. WKTV is not just a television station; it’s an historic television station and will continue to set the standard for television in the Mohawk Valley for years to come.

Bill is one of the longest-serving local news anchors in American television history.  Watch his announcement.

Morning anchor Don Shipman will move into Worden’s spot.
