SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — A face familiar to generations of San Antonio TV viewers has announced he is resigning.

Greg Simmons, who has been the Sports Director at KSAT-12 for 42 years submitted his resignation Monday.

His resignation comes less than a week after he was arrested for Suspicion of DWI.

The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office reported that Simmons was pulled over at around 3 A.M Friday, January 27 in the 3900 block of Evans Road.

The following statement from Simmons was posted on the KSAT-12 website:

“For the past 42 years, I have had the honor of working with the best in the business while sharing my passion for sports and our community with all of you. I am overwhelmed and humbled by the love and support from family, friends and viewers in light of recent events. I have resigned from my role as Sports Director at KSAT 12. I am grateful for the opportunity this brings to focus on my health and wellness, and what the future will bring.”
