Photojournalist to Retire After 55 Years at KSTP

KSTP photojournalist Brad Jacobs announced that he will retire next month after 55 years with the Minneapolis ABC-affiliate.

“My job has been like an ongoing college education, learning so much and meeting newsmakers,” Jacobs said in a statement. “Where else can you go and see so much firsthand?”

Jacobs, who will officially retire on April 20, joined Hubbard Broadcasting’s KSTP on April 14, 1957.

“Loyal staff members are a great asset to any organization,” Hubbard Broadcasting chairman Stanley Hubbard said in a statement. “However, loyal staff members who continue to show their loyalty and their dedication to excellence for 55 years in one organization exemplify the best.”
