72-Year-Old Al Terzi Leaving Anchor Desk

terzi_croppedVeteran Hartford newsman Al Terzi is planning on leaving the anchor chair on March 31.

According to the Hartford Courant the anchor for FOX affiliate WTIC isn’t retiring, “but rather scaling back on his on-air duties at the station.”

“I will continue to do my political show, the “Real Story,” Terzi told The Courant. “But I am getting off the daily anchor desk.”

He said he started thinking about slowing down when he and his wife began making plans for their 50th wedding anniversary. “She talked about a trip to Europe and cruise for three weeks and I said half-kiddingly, ‘maybe now is the time for me to step back from the day-to-day work.”

Terzi worked at Hartford-New Haven ABC affiliate WTNH for 14 years and CBS affiliate WFSB for 28 years before coming to WTIC in 2012.

Leaving WFSB After 28 Years, Al Terzi Tells Viewers He Doesn’t Want to Retire

After 28 years at WFSB, anchor Al Terzi said goodbye to the Hartford CBS-affiliate on Friday.

WFSB played a video tribute to Terzi’s career during its evening newscasts on Friday before bidding farewell to the longtime anchor.

Terzi, who most recently anchored WFSB’s 5 and 5:30 p.m. newscasts, first joined the station in the summer of 1968. After jobs at a couple of other stations, he returned to WFSB in 1993. Read more

Veteran Anchor Al Terzi Out at Hartford’s WFSB

After failing to agree on terms of a new contract with station management, Al Terzi will anchor his last WFSB newscast this week.

Terzi, who anchors the 5 and 5:30 p.m. newscasts, is a veteran of the Hartford CBS-affiliate. He has done two stints, totaling 28 years, at the station.

Terzi said he is talking with “other media outlets,” but said he had nothing to announce yet. Dennis House will anchor the 5 and 5:30 newscasts until the station is prepared to announce a replacement.
