Longtime Dallas Anchor Richard Ray says that he is leaving KDFW after 36 years in Dallas and 50 years in TV news.

And he’s doing it before the May book.

The long-time Anchor/Reporter made the announcement with a video on Facebook thanking the community and praying for them to be blessed.

“I’ve struggled with a way to put into words how much I appreciate what’s happened to me here,” Ray said in the video. “The colleagues I’ve had, the experiences I’ve had, the things I’ve seen and done, the history I've witnessed— it’s been remarkable.”

Ray anchors the station's 6 and 9 p.m. newscasts on Saturday and 5 and 9 p.m. newscasts on Sunday. He also does a weekly travel and recreation show called Lone Star Adventures and periodic specials.

His last on-air appearance will be April 21, Easter Sunday.

He joined KDFW in 1983.
