Let’s Watch The Greatest News Cruiser Sendoff In History

6ABC Action News anchorman Jim Gardner eulogizes a burning 1980’s Chevy Caprice in a way that few could

Anchorman Jim Gardner is a mainstay in Philly television information. He helmed the 6ABC Activity News workdesk at 11 p.m. for over four decades, and also last evening was his final broadcast during that time slot, as he intends to retire at the end of 2022. (Don’t fret you can still watch him at 6 p.m. if your heart wishes.).

While it’s no doubt that Gardner covered hundreds of stories throughout his long job, the one that most interests us is this wholehearted eulogy to their currently really dead Chevy Quirk news cruiser … referred to as “Cruiser No. 3.” Have a look:.

Despite the fact that it break right into fires on the lawn of their competitor– Network 10’s– office, it was still remembered fondly as an outstanding news-gathering vehicle.

” Vehicle 3 was singularly in charge of defeating Channel 10 on hundreds of news stories throughout the years,” Gardner said. “Automobile three, we will certainly miss you.”.

Gardner’s final 11 p.m. show on 6ABC was Tuesday evening, and if you’re a fan of regional news or from Philly, you’ll certainly intend to check it out:.

Jim Gardner first secured the 11 p.m. information on 6ABC in May 1977 and clearly had a lot more durability than the most effective General Motors had to supply in the mid-1980s.
