(Fresno, CA) --- Veteran television anchor Bud Elliott announced his retirement today after more than 23 years with
KSEE24, the NBC affiliate for California’s Central Valley.

In his career, Bud has earned many awards for excellence in journalism, including an Emmy and several AP and RTNDA
awards. Most recently Bud was recognized by the Fresno County Farm Bureau in May 2013 for his work on a four-part
series titled “California Water Crisis,” that focused on the water issues California farmers encounter and that addressed
potential solutions.

“I’ve been honored to deliver the news to Central Valley viewers for more than 2 decades. My career with KSEE24 has
given me the opportunity to meet and work with incredible people,” Bud Elliott commented. “Now, I’m looking forward to
spending quality time with my family, including a brand new grandson in Sacramento, and focusing on some recently
discovered health issues.”

Over the coming days and weeks, KSEE24 will recognize Bud Elliott’s personal and professional accomplishments.

He plans to anchor his final broadcast on May 23rd, 2014.

“Central Valley viewers, as well as those of us who have had the pleasure of working with him, have all benefited from
Bud’s talent and dedication,” said Matthew Rosenfeld, Vice President and general manager. “I know he is looking forward
to retirement and the additional time he’ll have to spend with his family.”

Bud’s career in news started at KHOW radio in Denver, CO where he was news director for most of the 1970's. Bud went
on to become news anchor at CNN-2 which later became CNN Headline News. Before his arrival in Fresno, Bud was the
main news anchor at the ABC affiliate in Richmond, Virginia. Bud started as anchor at KSEE24 in 1987.

“Whether behind the anchor desk or out in the field, Bud has established a solid reputation in our community for delivering
the news of the day," stated Chad McCollum, news director. "He will be missed in the newsroom and on the air. We wish
him well in this next chapter of his life."
