Good Night, Everyone… and Be Kind

Memories from “The Voice of the Northland”

by Dennis Anderson




At nineteen Denny nervously broke the news about President Kennedy’s assassination to radio listeners throughout Minnesota’s Arrowhead region. He was the first journalist to break the story of the Edmund Fitzgerald’s sinking. And he anchored the WDIO-TV news from 1970 to 2011, covering every major regional story and interviewing a number of politicians and celebrities. Inside, Denny recalls these stories and many others against the backdrop of his personal life—growing up on the Iron Range and becoming an avid outdoorsman, and dedicated family man,—and shares the insights that come from a life spent on the air.
