After 30 years WKYC Reporter Dick Russ signed off from the station on Friday night to take a job outside TV news.

WKYC says that 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. 

He has accepted a position as Vice President of North Coast Community Homes, a non-profit corporation providing housing for people with disabilities.

What does 30 years get you? A 43 second good bye on the newscast. Now, all those years really seem worth it....don't they?

Oh! I'm sure there was some cake as well.
