Rob Jennings to Retire After 36 Years at WPVI

After 36 years at WPVI, Rob Jennings will retire from the Philadelphia ABC O&O in July.

“Rob has played a huge role in the success of Action News and 6abc for decades,” WPVI president and general manager Bernie Prazenica said in a statement. “I can’t thank him enough for all that he has done. His talent and professionalism are unsurpassed in broadcast journalism. We will miss him as a colleague and a friend and wish him everything good in retirement.”

Jennings joined the station in 1977. He is the station’s weekend evening anchor.

“I can’t emphasize enough how grateful I am to have been able to do what I love to do  tell stories  for 36 years, with the greatest television station,” Jennings said. “My wife and I have been planning to retire for some time now. And now is the time to start our new adventure together.”
