BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Today is a tough day for all of us here at FOX6 News as we say goodbye to veteran anchor Scott Richards.

His long career at WBRC began in 1981. Over 33 years he has been with us through every major event, every disaster and every celebration. We salute Scott for his journalistic integrity, his commitment to excellence and his love and service to viewers just like you.

Through it all Scott's journalistic integrity and commitment to excellence have won an unprecedented nine Best Anchor awards from the Associated Press. But perhaps the most important reward of all is the trust he's earned from viewers.

Scott's longtime co-anchor Janet Hall created a special retrospective of Scott's career and we can't think of a better person for the job. In fact, Janet and Scott may take top honors as the longest-running anchor team in the country!

And after you've watched the retrospective, please listen to a special goodbye message from Scott to you, the viewer.
