After more than four decades reporting the news, longtime KTVT Reporter Bud Gillett says he's done.
Gillett has been at the station since September 2001 after a long career across the street at KDFW.
Back in July 2009, Gillette filed a lawsuit against KTVT charging the station with retaliation and reverse discrimination based on his age, sex, race and national origin.
He later dropped the lawsuit. “It’s resolved. That’s all I’m authorized to say,” he said at the time.
Gillett was a first-hand witness to some milestone Texas news events, including the Branch Davidian cult standoff in Waco in 1993 and the rescue of toddler Jessica McClure from a Midland well in 1987.
He will likely be replaced by some kid, on their second job out of school that will shoot, write and edit their own story for about a quarter of what Gillett was making.
Is this a great business or what?
