News veteran Jim Shaw steps down
Detroit Lakes Minnesota 511 Washington Avenue 56501

Jim Shaw announced Tuesday that he is resigning as news director of KVRR-TV, a post he has held since the Fox station went on the air in 2000.

Shaw, 58, who has battled a chronic illness since September, told his newsroom staff that he will step down as of Friday to more fully recuperate.

Shaw was able to return to work a couple of months ago following a medical leave, but said in an interview that he doesn’t have the energy to be as engaged as he would like.

“I don’t want people to think I’m on my death bed or anything like that,” he said, chuckling. “If I was, I wouldn’t be working.”
