Vietnam Vet Watches Interview He Did With KSL While Still Fighting War

For a 70th Birthday surprise, Steve Rasmussen got to watch an interview he did 45 years ago near Da Nang, Vietnam with former KSL reporter Dick Nourse.

“We got back from on a patrol, and somebody says ‘There was a newscaster that was interviewing people from Utah’ so they sent me over,” Rasmussen told current KSL reporter Keith McCord. Rasmussen who was 24 at the time, was a Lance Corporal in Fox Company, 2nd Battalion of the First Marines.

Rasmussen’s family asked the Salt Lake City NBC affiliate to dig up the archival footage to celebrate his birthday. He had never seen the interview showing him as a young Marine fighting in Southeast Asia. Read more

Former Salt Lake City Anchor Battles Cancer for Third Time

Dick Nourse, retired news anchor for Salt Lake City’s KSL, has recently been diagnosed with throat cancer.

“(My family’s) support, including that shown by members of my extended “TV family,” was key to my recovery during my first battles with cancer, and it is a great source of strength for me now,” Nourse said in a statement posted to the station’s website. “My wife, Deb, and I are extremely grateful. We know we’ll get through this.”

This is the third battle with cancer for the retired anchor who left the NBC affiliate in 2007. He overcame non-Hodgkins lymphoma in the early 1980s and later survived a bout with prostate cancer.
