Bush has worked at KSDK for 28 years, moving from sports director to news anchor in 2003. He currently anchors the 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts alongside Kay Quinn and the 10 p.m. newscast solo.
“Mike Bush is more than just the face of our station,” GM Lynn Beall said in a statement announcing the news. “He’s also a proud and caring father; an innovative leader; a concerned advocate for our community, and a dedicated journalist.”
“This is such a great news organization and I am so proud to be a part of it,” Bush added. “NewsChannel 5 is my home, and in many regards the great people and journalists I work with every day are simply an extension of my family. It’s so great to work at a station that reflects values.”
