Victoria Block Retiring from WHDH

Victoria Block, reporter for Boston NBC affiliate WHDH has announced she is retiring.

She spread the news on her Twitter feed along with a picture of her peeping over the top of a folder with the word, “Retiring!!” written by hand. She tweeted, “Retiring!  Because I can :-) . So happy!!” You can see a screen grab of the tweet after the jump.

Block confirmed the news with TVSpy saying, “I am retiring because I can and because life is short. I have had a fantastic run, 35 years in the business, 32 of them in Boston, 27 at 7 News. I’m trading in snow storms, chaos and disasters for sunshine and flip flops and time with my family. Life is good :-)

Block started working at WHDH on April 6, 1986. She told TVSpy her last day will be March 19.

Ally Donnelly, reporter for NECN, replied to Block’s tweet by saying, “You will be sorely missed in the scrum!”
