Legendary WKAR reporter, producer, host, anchor, and journalist Scott Pohl has retired after an award-winning 35-year career at MSU’s WKAR Public Media.

Pohl talks about what it feels like to retire, and he describes his path to MSU as a student and then to WKAR five years after graduation. And he says there are two interviews that stand out to him over his career.

An era is coming to an end at WKAR.   On Thursday, our senior news reporter Scott Pohl is calling it a career.  Scott’s contribution to WKAR over the last 35 years has been so immense and so meaningful that there’s just not enough time to tell him how grateful we are for all he’s done.  But  Scott is our dear friend.  So we have to try.
