WFTS ABC Action News sports anchor and director Tom Korun is retiring from broadcasting after more than 14 years at the station and 31 years on Tampa Bay TV screens.
Korun announced the news via Twitter, saying that he'll leave the job on Dec. 15.

Korun started his broadcasting career in Des Moines, Iowa while still a student at Drake University, and later worked in Tampa Bay for WFLA and the Sunshine Network before joining WFTS.
"You have to be real with yourself, and say do you want to continue, or not, and I came to the conclusion that now is the time," Korun said.
Korun said he's looking forward to playing golf much more often, and helping out his wife with their dog training business.
