KSTP Photojournalist Retires after 55 years

| No Comments

After spending 55 years carrying cameras around for KSTP-TV, Brad Jacobs, 77, has finally thrown in the towel.

Jacobs had his first photo published when he was 15, and began his career with KSTP nearly seven years later, in 1957, reported the Pioneer Press.

Over his career, Jacobs covered the Six-Day War in Egypt, and interviewed characters like Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, and Bob Hope. Jacobs won an Emmy in 1993 for covering an explosion in St. Paul, and won a Gold Circle Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in 2008.

"After 55 years of hauling a camera around, I'm ready to take a little time off," said Jacobs, whose retirement officially begins next month.
