Our friend and fellow broadcaster from KBZK-TV Ted Dawson is retiring. After more than 50yrs in the business, Ted will do his final broadcast at 10 p.m.on Friday.

I grew up watching Ted when he was ABC-TV in Los Angeles, so I was very excited to find out he was doing sports in Bozeman when I moved here back in 2014. I've been lucky to get to know Ted over the last few years, and he's been really great to me and to XL Country.

Here's some things you may not know about Ted:

  • He was a reporter at the very first Super Bowl
  • He's been in movies & TV shows (check out video below)
  • He's covered 9 World Series
  • He was a TV broadcaster for the Dallas Cowboys (this is my personal favorite)

Ted, you are one of the nicest people I have ever met in Broadcasting and I don't think I know anyone who enjoys their job more than you do. I will miss you, and so will a lot of other people!

Please write a book about your career. It will be a bestseller!
