                        Wednesday, July 11, 2018

  Mr. GIANFORTE. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Steve Fetveit, an 
award-winning broadcaster who served for decades as a trusted source 
for Montana news.
  Steve retired as a television news anchor for NBC Montana last week, 
capping a distinguished 42-year broadcast career that took him 
throughout the state.
  Steve was born and raised in Montana, graduated from Montana State 
University, and understands what is important to Montanans. Viewers 
recognized and appreciated his knowledge of our state, his easygoing 
personality, and his credibility.
  The Greater Montana Foundation and the Montana Broadcasters 
Association recognized Steve as Montana's ``Television On-Air 
Broadcaster of the Year'' in 2006.
  Steve has served the wider community of broadcast journalists, 
including as a board member and chairman of the Montana Broadcasters 
Association. His experience and professionalism are an example to the 
young broadcasters he mentors. He dedicates his time to up-and-coming 
journalists, promoting their careers and reinforcing the importance of 
the profession's ethics.
  Dewey Bruce, president and CEO of the Montana Broadcasters 
Association, said, ``Steve is a fantastic newsman, very fair, and has 
made valuable contributions to broadcasters and the state of the 
Montana. He is very deserving of recognition.''
  For his outstanding career as a broadcast journalist and his 
dedication to serving our Montana communities, I recognize Steve 
Fetveit for embodying the spirit of Montana.
