Longtime News 8 at Sunrise Traffic reporter Tom George gave his last Sunrise Traffic report Friday morning as he prepares to retire.

George spent 45 years broadcasting in Rochester, the last 30 providing traffic reports on the radio and on the air.

"I'm going to miss the people tremendously, especially that group at Entercom, they're just awesome and I'm going to miss my closeness with 911, they're kind of like my second family, and the DOT people and all the spotters we have out there, the tow truck people and all those that help out, that I'm going to miss," said George.  "I'm not going to miss getting up at 3:45 in the morning.  I'll tell you that."

George will take time to rest a bothersome eye, the result of surgery for a detached retina.  He plans to stay in Rochester and spend more time helping out at his church Holy Apostles, while pursuing other opportunities.
