Deseret Management Corp. CEO Keith McMullin said Lindsay has been precise, versatile and adaptive to the many changes in the industry throughout his career.
"You have had an entire community in your hands for the last three-plus decades and now you're going to have 150 to 200 young men and women of tender years … under your charge," he said. "It is with gratitude that we bid you farewell and issue a Godspeed, and say to you now, the most important and challenging part of your life awaits you."
Moving forward, Vea said KSL is taking a new direction with its evening news programs. The different format will include two new anchors alongside Wimmer: Dave McCann, the voice of the Cougars on BYUtv and recent news anchor in Las Vegas, and Mike Headrick, who previously worked in the Salt Lake, Texas, and Ohio markets, most recently anchoring a morning news program in Denver.
"Just as Bruce led a successful era, we are looking forward to creating the next era of KSL," Vea said.
KSL's mainstay Nadine Wimmer and Headrick will co-anchor the weekday 5 p.m. news, while McCann and Wimmer will appear weekdays at 6 p.m., and the three of them together will host the 10 p.m. news programs Monday through Friday.
"KSL has always been a top-notch organization and my goal is to help us get even better," Headrick said. His first day on the air with KSL will be May 29.
