WKYC‘s Fred Griffith is bidding farewell to broadcasting today, after 50 years on Ohio TV, reports WKYC’s Director’s Cut blog.

Griffith has been with WKYC since 2000, most recently serving as co-host of the NBC-affiliate’s 10 a.m. weekday show “Good Company Today.”

Before joining WKYC, Griffith spent 33 years at Cleveland ABC-affiliate WEWS, where he worked as a reporter and news producer before becoming the longtime host of the station’s daytime shows.

Griffith began his broadcasting career in Charleston, WV, before moving to Cleveland in 1959.
