So long to Mike Nikitas, the longtime NECN anchor/reporter, who departed the station Tuesday after 26 years. In an e-mail to friends and colleagues, Nikitas said he’s leaving to pursue a “new adventure” that’ll include business and teaching. He thanked NECN managers past and present, including Charlie Kravetz, Phil Balboni, Mike St. Peter, and Kenny Plotnik; co-anchors Leslie Gaydos, Karen Swensen, Latoyia Edwards, and Joy Lim Nakrin; and mentors Ernie Anastos, Tom Ellis, Larry Kane, and the late Chet Curtis. “It’s been a journey I’ll never forget,” Nikitas wrote.
