Hanging it Up in the Big Easy

Stick a fork in WWL Anchor Dennis Woltering....he's done.

Or at least he will be at the end of the book.

Woltering says that he will retire at the end of May. An evening newscast anchor at the station since 1994 who served an earlier stint as a reporter and weekend anchor at the station from 1977 to 1984, Woltering is 67.

“This has been on my mind for probably a couple of years,” Woltering said to the Times Picayune, after a staff-meeting announcement and a WWLTV.com posting of the news. “I think most people at the station have known about this for some time.”

Woltering added that his contract with WWL expired in February, but he was asked by management to stay on through May.
