Guam news icon Jon Anderson announces retirement

by Krystal Paco

Guam - After over 40 years of service to Guam and the CNMI, news icon Jon Anderson announces his retirement.

With this news, senators presented Anderson with a resolution for his contributions to the media industry. "This is an honor that I did not expect. But I thank you very, very much for thinking about the fact that those of us in the media make that contribution to the public," Anderson said gratefully. "My goal was always to make sure that the other guy on the phone, that his opinion got across. That his thoughts became known."

Anderson first moved to Guam in 1977 to become vice president and general manager of KUAM. Later he and a couple of partners founded the Sorenson Media Group, where he served in a variety of capacities, including general manager, corporate executive, and even anchored the first broadcast of the Pacific News Center.

Most recently, Anderson expanded his resume to include print media serving as the editor in chief of Marianas Variety Guam Edition.
