It is a tradition at most television stations to produce a “goodbye video” to the one who is leaving for another job or retiring. A video is produced that viewers see and there is another video produced showing staff members and friends that is a bit more candid and longer. It is usually seen and then presented to the person at a going away party. This it Tom Suiter’s special tribute.
Tom retired from as the primary WRAL sports anchor in 2008, but continued until June, 2016 as producer/anchor of Friday Night Football showcasing local high school in the viewing area, and continued to present The Extra Effort Award as well.
Enjoy watching this behind-the-scenes video of how well liked Tom was to work with on a daily basis. You might find a few things about Tom that you did know before!
