Jon Snow, a towering figure of British television news (both literally and figuratively), is to leave Channel 4 News after 32 years.

Channel 4 and ITN announced that Snow will hang up his colorful collection of ties and socks at the end of 2021, but he will continue to work on other projects for the broadcaster next year.

He leaves as the longest-serving presenter in the show’s history, with a rich record of bringing viewers the stories that matter with his trademark mix of fearlessness and compassion. He also leaves behind a 45-year career at news producer ITN.

In a statement, Snow said: “After three incredible decades on Channel 4 News, it is time to move on. I am excited by the many things I want to accomplish but I have to say I have enjoyed every minute of my time with the programme.

“It has brought me adventure, as well as sorrow in some of the stories that I have had to report and also joy in reporting others, but above all, it has brought me community in working with the most fantastic group of people who are bound in intellect, humour and understanding.”
