SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) – Barb Smith retired from anchoring television news Sunday night. Smith has had a long and successful career at ABC 4, where she started as an Anchor for Good Morning Utah in 1990. Barb also anchored the weekend news, evening and 10pm news in her many years at ABC 4.
Barb says the greatest rewards from her career have come from community service. In her decades at ABC 4 she was instrumental in raising millions of dollars for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, and thousands for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. She also acted as a spokesperson for Susan G. Komen's Race for the Cure.
She has covered innumerable stories during her career including 9/11, the Elizabeth Smart kidnapping, and homecoming, the Crandall Canyon Mine disaster, medical and science breakthroughs, and breaking news.
Barb is now looking forward to a new career, on the other side of the lens, at the University of Utah.
