OAKLAND, Calif. ” Longtime Bay Area news anchor Dennis Richmond is signing off for the last time.

Richmond, 64, announced his plans to retire in January, marking the end of a 40-year career that saw him rise from a clerk typist to one of the most recognizable faces in Northern California. His last newscast is tonight.
