After 40 years in the news business, KCNC reporter Paul Day will retire early next year.

Day, who focuses mostly on environmental reporting, joined the Denver CBS O&O in 1984. According to the Denver Post, news director Tim Wieland hopes that Day will continue to contribute to part-time special projects for the station.

Day, who got his start in television in the 1970s, told the Post that the industry has changed profoundly in his four decades as a reporter, saying his biggest fear used to be “that a splice would break.”

“Now I can Skype with my granddaughter,” he said. “I’ve had a blast.”
