(KSL News) We've conservatively estimated that Dick Nourse has anchored some 23,000 newscasts in his 43 years at KSL. For the past 24 years he's been at Broadcast House at the Triad Center.

For years, KSL was one of just a few businesses in this part of town, but now it's a lively neighborhood with Energy Solutions Arena and The Gateway. Even before this Broadcast House was built, there was another one. The original Broadcast House was on Social Hall Avenue. In fact, for years the three major network channels at the time, 2, 4 and 5, were all located on Social Hall Avenue.

Everyone from the stations knew each other, ad even though they all got along for the most part, it's always been a competitive business. Dick says it was a lot of fun on Social Hall, a different era. That is where the long-running anchor team of Nourse, Welti and James started. Before that Dick reported a news segment on the old "Midday" program, with Jackie Nokes.
