(KSL News) Gov. Jon Huntsman declared November, 28, 2007 as "Wish Dick Nourse Well in his Retirement" Day, in Utah.
The governor declared:
"On behalf of many represented here tonight, let me just say this: Where as Richard H. Nourse is retiring after working as a newscaster for 43 years--anchoring more than 20,000 KSL newscasts and keeping viewers informed of changes in the world;
"Whereas, Dick is the longest serving news anchor in Utah history and one of the longest serving news anchors in U.S. History;
"Whereas, Dick has donated countless hours of personal time to serve his community and assist those in need;
"Whereas Dick survived cancer on two occasions, sharing his battle against this dreadful disease with his audience as an advocate for cancer awareness;
"Whereas Dick is known for his tenacious energy, unswerving devotion to staying in peak physical condition in spite of his reutine trips to Crown Burger for the occasional milkshake fix,
"Whereas the news has changed over 43 years, but Dick's integrity believability, hair style and professionalism have remained constant in Utah news;
"Now, therefore, I, as governor of the greatest state in America, do hereby declare today, November 28, 2007, as "Dick Nourse Recognition Day," in Utah.
"And it's an honor, Dick, to be able to do so."
