DENVER — Longtime “Channel 2 Daybreak” anchor Tom Green will leave the morning show later this year, it was announced Thursday.

A little more than 15 years ago, Green left sports and began anchoring news.

“He jumped in with both feet and was an instant favorite on morning television,” Channel 2 News Director Holly Gauntt said. “Tom has been a part of the Channel 2 fabric ever since, informing, entertaining and enlightening viewers on ‘Daybreak.’ He’s built up quite a following in the 35 years he’s been on Denver TV.”

Green will leave when his contract expires at the end of May.

“I’ve had such a long, fun, and rewarding relationship with our viewers on ‘Daybreak,’ but, even the best of things come to an end,” Green said.

When he leaves, Green estimates he will have done about 4,000 “Daybreak” shows over his more than 15 years.

“I’ve simply decided that it’s time for me to change the view, and try something new,” he said. What that is, I do not yet know.”
