Local TV news legends Bill Kurtis and Walter Jacobson signed off as anchors Thursday after returning to CBS 2 in Chicago a little more than two years ago, according to a news release from WBBM-TV Channel 2.
Thursday's newscast included a video tribute to the pair, as well as good wishes from CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley and "Anchorman" star Will Ferrell, the release said.
