Moving Up the Retirement Date

WCCO Sports anchor Mark Rosen says that he is moving up the date of his retirement.

Rosen first shared the news of his retirement earlier this Fall, but had planned to stay at the station through the Final Four basketball championship in April.

His reason for leaving was due to the health of his wife, Denise, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor in July.

“As our old friend Kirby Puckett said, ‘No one is promised tomorrow’ and that’s what we’re dealing with here,” he said, “I’ve been working morning ’til night. I just felt it was the right time to say, ‘Enough is enough.’ ”

“I am moving that date up to Jan. 10,” Rosen told WCCO viewers. “There are no words to express the appreciation for the outpouring of support my family has received during this difficult time.”
