BOISE, Idaho -- Brink Chipman, a much-beloved newsman in Utah and Idaho, has died at age 66 after a long bout of colon cancer. He passed away Monday at his Idaho home.

Chipman began his career at KUTV and retired 35 years later, in 2004, as KSL 5's news director. In between, he served as news director in Tucson, Ariz., and Boise, Idaho, and as a news consultant.

After Chipman retired, he excelled in his new-found love: painting.

Chipman leaves behind his wife, Bev, and sons Brook and Toby.

Services will be this Sat., Jan. 23, at 2 p.m. at Boise's Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Church.
