INDIANAPOLIS -- After over five decades on the air, Dr. Dirt - Dick Crum - is officially retiring from television.
Crum first hit the airwaves in 1962.
"There was a directive from the director of extensions saying that TV had arrived," said Crum. "But he didn't think it was anything we should get involved in. So, since I was the new person on the staff, they said: 'how would you like to do TV?' I said: 'Well, I guess I can.'"
