Clyde Gray, longtime Cincinnati anchor, has announced his retirement from ABC affiliate WCPO.
Gray started at WCPO in September 1990. According to his bio, he’s worked at four stations in three cities including Winston-Salem, NC, where he started his career.
““When I started in broadcasting 37 years ago, I set certain goals for myself which, through my relationship with WCPO, have all come to fruition,” Gray said in a statement posted to the station’s website. “Over the last several years, I have felt a strong tug to reinvent myself, to refresh myself and to take my life in a new direction, which includes more time with my wife and three children.”
Gray looks forward to exploring opportunities in media relations, executive coaching and crisis management. “I am excited about opportunities to continue to serve the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky area by lending my experience to its many fine business and governmental institutions. I am putting the finishing touches on my future plans,” said Gray.
The station also announced the move on its facebook page saying, “We’ll miss him, and we know you will, too.”
