After nearly three decades in the homes of many in northeastern Louisiana, KNOE-TV anchor John Denison will be leaving the station at the end of the month.

The News Star reports Denison first joined the CBS affiliate for the Monroe, La.-El Dorado, Ark. market in 1981, working there for 11 years. He then joined rival NBC affiliate KTVE-TV and worked as a news anchor there for 7 years.

Throw in a three-year break to work for non-profit agencies, and a re-hire by KNOE 9 years ago, and you have quite the history for the 55-year-old Denison.

But why does he want to leave? From the article:

“I’ve been doing this a long time, but there are many more things I want to do and can do while I’m able,” said Denison, a Louisiana Tech University graduate and DeSoto Parish native. “I’ve wanted to do some long-form writing, volunteering and travel, and that’s what I plan to do.”

We at South TV News wish Denison the best of luck and congratulate him on quite a storied career in the same market.
