Family and friends were on hand as Dennis Anderson officially took his place in the Minnesota Broadcasting Hall of Fame over the weekend.


The longtime WDIO news anchor was inducted in a Saturday night ceremony at the Pavek Museum of Broadcasting in St. Louis Park.  Anderson's wife, children, and several grandchildren attended, as did Hubbard Broadcasting President and CEO Stanley S. Hubbard and several other members of the Hubbard Broadcasting and WDIO-TV teams.

"I'm still a very fortunate man who will forever be grateful for the wonderful honor that is being bestowed upon me tonight.  I really can't thank all of you enough for what you are doing.  This really puts the cap on my career.  I feel like I have accomplished something very deeply," Anderson said.

He ended his acceptance speech with his longtime signoff, "Good night everybody, and be kind."

Anderson still appears on TV weekly, hosting WDSE-TV's "Almanac North."  December 1 will mark the beginning of his 59th year in broadcasting.
