Betsey Bruce served the St. Louis area for almost 46 years as a television journalist. Now, she’s getting ready to retire. Her last day at KTVI will be on Friday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.
In her reporter biography, Bruce said she started working at KTVI, a Fox affiliate in 1989 and covered weekend news and consumer stories for Contact 2. Previously, Bruce had also reported local news for KMOX-TV, now known as KMOV.
One KTVI reporter and anchor took to Facebook to share his feelings on Bruce’s departure.
“I honestly can’t tell you how deeply I feel this: dismal will be the coming days when I walk into our newsroom and Betsey Bruce is not there,” KTVI’s Andy Banker wrote. “She’s always been what the news should be. She’s ALWAYS put the story first.”
Never miss a local story.
Viewers can see Bruce one last time on KTVI when she makes a scheduled appearance at 8:40 a.m. Friday, the Post-Dispatch reported.
