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.”
