Friday at 8am, David announced his retirement on the air.
David Moore, producer and announcer for WGVU Public Media, signed off the air Sept. 26 after 27 years of service.We knew this was coming. And the man certainly is entitled to his retirement, but it still catches you by surprise. Of course his voice will linger on for some time. Today they played one of his bumpers between Weekend Edition and Car Talk.
Moore was the host of WGVU’s Morning Edition and also covered a wide range of news stories in addition to anchoring newscasts for Mid-Day West Michigan.
“I have had the honor and pleasure of waking up West Michigan,” said Moore. “You and I have laughed together, cried together, celebrated the good news and fretted over the bad. I’ve helped you plan your day, given you traffic and weather, and even kept you entertained with my sometimes corny one-liners. But, after 27 years behind this microphone, it’s time to step aside. It’s been a great run. Ending my time here at WGVU is a bitter sweet experience if ever there was one. Thank you for listening and God bless.”
Thank you, David. Our mornings are ruined now, never to be the same...
