After 30 years at WKYC, Dick Russ is signing off from the Cleveland NBC affiliate.
Russ, who is an anchor and reporter as well as the station’s managing editor, has accepted a position with a non-profit that provides housing for people with disabilities. His last day at WKYC was Friday (video above).
“Dick had a knack for knowing what Clevelanders needed to know, how they wanted to hear it, and he knew they trusted him when he told them about it,” WKYC said in a statement. “We will miss Dick and wish him all the best.”
