Norman Robinson Signs Off From WDSU’s 10 p.m. Newscast

In a “preliminary step” toward retirement, Norman Robinson will anchor his last 10 p.m. newscast on WDSU tonight, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Robinson plans to retire in June 2014 after 23 years at the anchor desk. He will continue as the New Orleans NBC affiliate’s 6 p.m. anchor until then.

“I decided to scale back and give myself a year to make the transition,” Robinson told the Times-Picayune. “I’m in great health. It was not a health-related decision … I’m happy with where I am. I’m excited about this. This is just a preliminary step.”
