Longtime Big Easy Anchor Sets Date for Retirement

WDSU has finally set the date for longtime Anchor Norman Robinson's retirement.

Robinson will deliver his final 6 p.m. newscast on May 30. The station says that Robinson will continue his relationship with WDSU  through periodic appearances, beginning with a featured role in the 2014 Children’s Hospital Telethon, taking place May 31 and June 1 and broadcast on WDSU. 

“As I look back over my life, I can’t help but think that I’ve come a long way from Toomsuba, Mississippi,” said Robinson. “I am filled with bittersweet emotions, but happy to turn the page to a new chapter in my life. Most of all I have been lucky enough to fulfill my lifelong dream to become a news anchor in the city I love. For that, I am most grateful."
