Kangas returning to NBR for guest appearance
by Chris Roush
Paul Kangas, the longtime co-anchor of PBS’ “Nightly Business Report,” is coming back to the show for a guest appearance.
On Thursday, Dec. 6, Kangas will talk about the market and answer some of viewer questions.
Kangas, a pioneering business journalist, received a Lifetime Achievement Emmy Award, along with Linda O’Bryon, for their pioneering efforts in business journalism.
The honor was a fitting close to Kangas’ legendary 30-year career talking stocks on Nightly Business Report. His last broadcast as anchor aired Thursday, Dec. 31, 2009 on PBS.
Kangas joined Nightly Business Report when it began as a local program on Miami’s public television station, WPBT2, in 1979. While helping to make NBR the most-watched daily business program on television, Kangas was praised by publications such as TV Guide for his “fine stock market coverage.”
Kangas was named to an Esquire list of “Sixty-Six Guys to Emulate” because, according to the magazine, “he tells the truth about the market when we need it.”
He signed off by wishing the audience one final “best of good buys.”
