Stewart White has left BBC Look East after 37 years.

He said goodbye and thanked viewers at the end of tonight’s programme.

In total, he has presented more than 10,000 programmes and covered the biggest stories in the East of England.

“This is a sad day for me. I have spent 37 very happy years at BBC Look East,” Stewart said.

“I have interviewed prime ministers, archbishops, Hollywood superstars and top musicians.

“I have challenged and celebrated, but the most important thing for me is that at 6.30pm every evening hundreds of thousands of people have invited me into their homes to take them through the news of the day.

“I have never taken that for granted and am honoured to have been a part of so many lives for so long. I will miss it with all of my heart, but the time is right.”

His first job at the BBC was as a studio manager before he moved in front of the microphone. He had short stints at several local BBC radio stations before joining BBC Look East in 1984.
