Rob Jennings Set to Retire in July from Action News

[FROM 6ABC] Action News has been Philadelphia's #1 news source for more than three decades, and a large part of that success is attributed to Rob Jennings.

He will complete his storied career with WPVI at the end of July.

For more than 36 years, Jennings has been a consistent presence on Action News, anchoring the weekend newscasts with his warm, yet authoritative persona. Jennings joined the Action News team in July of 1977.

His career at 6abc has taken him from Three Mile Island to the White House and even into the wild blue yonder, flying with both the Air Force Thunderbirds and The Navy's Blue Angels.

In 2003, Jennings was inducted into the Philadelphia Broadcast Pioneers Hall of Fame.

Jennings has made a lasting impression on the Philadelphia news business, and the impact he has had on WPVI is widely known.

"Rob has played a huge role in the success of Action News and 6abc for decades", says Bernie Prazenica President & General Manager, 6abc. "I can't thank him enough for all that he has done. His talent and professionalism are unsurpassed in broadcast journalism. We will miss him as a colleague and a friend and wish him everything good in retirement."
