Peter Sissons is ending his career as a newsreader after 45 years in the industry.
Sissons, who is one of Britain's longest serving news presenters, will leave his current position working on BBC 24 this summer to concentrate on his memoirs.
He told The Daily Mirror: "I do feel I'm still on top of my game and I still enjoy it - I don't know how much I'll miss it until I stop but I don't think I'll be sitting in a darkened room.
"The longest newscaster before me was Dickie Baker, who did the BBC news for 28 years. Some people think I am still working for ITN, even though I left 20 years ago."
Sissons' first role as a news anchor came in 1978, when he began presenting ITN's 'News At One'.
In 1989 he began working for the BBC presenting 'Question Time' as well as the 'Six O'Clock News'.
