Veteran TV news reporter Mike Watkiss will retire on Aug. 17 after 22 years with 3TV, which got us thinking: Which current metro Phoenix news personalities have enjoyed the longest runs? We decided to put a list together. Among the ground rules: The run has to be uninterrupted at one station, which is why a familiar face like Ron Hoon just narrowly missed the cut. And, we stuck to English-language stations. So, with plenty of assistance from the stations themselves, we present, in descending order, our group of veteran broadcasters. We include their rank and the year they started at the station. We begin with Watkiss, who is still on the air as we speak, meriting inclusion.

Corrections/Clarifications: An earlier version of this story imprecisely described an aspect of Donald Trump’s business interests. His company no longer operates casinos. WASHINGTON — If voters decide to hire billionaire Donald Trump as their president in 2016, they couldn’t actually fire him from the job he now holds.
