Yes. The headline is correct. The man who has anchored weekends in the Delaware Valley for over three decades, one of the single most underrated news personalities in the entire area, the most reliable substitute for Jim Gardner, is retiring in July. You can read the story here. I don't think I can stress enough how crucial Rob Jennings has been to the success of WPVI. He was never flashy, but he was a fantastic reporter, one of the most reliable anchors ever, and an extremely warm presence. Maybe "we gotta hear it from Jim", but if news happened on a weekend or when he was off, well, I was just fine hearing it from Rob. Yes, this has been coming. His delivery has gotten less crisp over the last few years. Once the prime substitute for Gardner, he'd visibly cut back on his schedule. Still, any news that a longtime Action News personality is departing is pretty big, and this did hit me a bit. His retirement is well-deserved, and I wish him well as he pursues his lifelong passion of boating. ----- Note: I hate to have to even mention this here, and I'm not a mod and don't have any power. But because of that thread we had earlier... I don't think this thread is appropriate for any jokes pertaining to any alleged racism or sexism on his part. It's tempting, but I honestly think Rob is one of my personal picks as best anchor, and as I said the man was so crucial to 6's success. Maybe it's just me, but it feels wrong to reference it in this thread.
