After 40 Years in Local TV, Hope Hines Signs Off

Nashville sports legend Hope Hines retired this week after 28 years as WTVF‘s sports director. The broadcast veteran is using his new free time to write a book about his career, which will be released this spring.

Hines both started and ended his career at WTVF, the CBS affiliate in Nashville. He was sports director from 1971 to 1975 before leaving the station to join KFMB, in San Diego. His lengthy broadcast career also took him to WWL in New Orleans, WCNC in Charlotte and WMAR in Baltimore before returning to WTVF in 1983.

Hines worked on his final script for the 6 p.m. broadcast for three hours. “It’s like a painting,” Hines said. “You’re never really through with it, you just stop.” Watch the tribute to Hines, after the jump.
