Jim Gardner Reducing Schedule, to Retire at End of 2022


Recommended Posts

Wow, this hits hard. It's going to be a completely different landscape in market #4 without Jim. He absolutely earned and deserves his retirement after over four decades as Philadelphia's most trusted and beloved news anchor, but I personally will miss him on my TV screen every weekday evening.

Tell you the truth, a lot where I live are feeling the same way about Michael Cogdill quitting on WYFF News 4-- it'll be the same way down here.

After his retirement, the obvious schedule to me is:

 

Noon, 4pm, 6pm: Brian, Sarah, Adam, Jamie (only 4/6), Alicia (only noon/4)


5pm, 10pm, 11pm: Rick, Sharrie, Cecily, Ducis, Alicia (only 5)

 

I imagine they will eventually decide traffic between Jessica and Matt, with one doing mornings and the other afternoon/evening.

Philly and America's longest-running local news theme (and a record shattering one) Move Closer to Your World will turn 50 next year.

 

That's the same year that Gardner will leave 6ABC.

Apparently, Jim Gardner will have been there for the balance of that half-century of MCTYW, the way I understand this.
