A half-century spent in tv news wraps up at the end of the week in Green Bay at Sinclair’s WLUK.
Anchor Tom Milbourn is retiring from the station where he’s held forth since 1994.
Milbourn has also been teaching media courses at St. Norbert College.
His advice for the next generation of journalists is to “stay the course.”
“Be as independent as you can be. It’s a challenge. We all have our opinions. We all have our beliefs. Do the best job you can at leaving them at the door,” says Milbourn.
Milbourn’s television career included serving as news director and anchor in Madison, Lansing, Mich., and Champaign, Ill. before coming to Green Bay in 1987.
