Dennis Anderson: Celebrating a Career

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, in a coma, or frozen from the Duluth winter, chances are you’ve heard that the face of news in the Northland, Dennis Anderson, will be retiring soon.  In fact, his last newscast will be Wednesday, May 25, so you only have a few more chances to him before Darren Danielson takes over the anchor desk.

WDIO has taken the opportunity to look back at his career on its website.  There was a news reunion of sorts, gathering some of the familiar faces of WDIO past to honor Denny.  Also included is some archive footage from memorable events in the past four decades, such as the benzene spill and fireworks explosion.  They seem to be adding new clips every day or two, so be sure to check back from time to time.

I remember him joking about ending his last broadcast with "Goodnight, and beat the shit out of your neighbor."  Here's hoping.

Alright.  This is a stretch, and even I feel icky about attempting this, but here goes.

As long as we're celebrating the career of Dennis "The King" Anderson, why not head on over to the ol' Facebook and "like" my video entry into the Farewell Dennis Anderson contest?  Be kind.

My entry into the "Denny's FaceBook 'Fan Farewell' Contest"!!!
