-- Longtime ESPN anchor Bob Ley announced on Wednesday he is retiring after 40 years with the network.

Ley is ESPN’s longest-tenured anchor, having debuted just three days after the network launched in 1979.

“To be clear, this is entirely my decision. I enjoy the best of health, and the many blessings of friends and family, and it is in that context that I’m making this change,” he said in his statement.

Ley is an 11-time Sports Emmy winner and was inducted into the National Sports Media Association Hall of Fame earlier this week.
