“No Shuffleboard” For Palmer

Washington Whispers sits down with former “Today” show host John Palmer, who now works for Retirement Living Television.

    “I didn’t even know what it was,” he laughs. He does now, hosting three shows and acting as a real-life demonstration of many in today’s retirement class: working for fun, not just a paycheck. Geared for the 55-plus crowd, the network created by Maryland retirement community bigwig John Erickson is growing fast. And covering real, major issues. “We don’t do shuffleboard shows,” says Palmer. Now a sharp-looking 71, Palmer sounds almost giddy about his 10-day-a-month work schedule. And, he adds, “my wife has noticed a new spring in my step when I get up.”
