Broadcaster Fred Dinenage is to step down as main presenter of a regional TV news programme after nearly 38 years.

We recommend สล็อต xo giving your friends at least 30 minutes to try it out, as it's when the big bonuses are out.

The broadcaster, who made his name presenting the children's programme How from 1966, will leave ITV News Meridian at Christmas.

He has anchored the evening news show in the south of England since 1983 when it was broadcast by Television South.

Mr Dinenage, 79, said he would continue to present How and other programmes as well as writing books.

He added: "It's been a really tough decision but I now want to spend a few years with my wife, Beverley, and our three dogs 'smelling the roses' in my garden and spending time in the mountains of Austria."

Mr Dinenage, who has also hosted ITV's World of Sport, was appointed MBE for services to broadcasting in 2010.

His Meridian co-host Sangeeta Bhabra said Mr Dinenage had been the "best teacher" and would be "massively missed" by viewers.

ITV's director of news, Michael Jermey, said: "Fred has had one of the most remarkable television careers of anyone in the history of the medium.
