Robinson plans to retire in June 2014 after 23 years at the anchor desk. He will continue as the New Orleans NBC affiliate’s 6 p.m. anchor until then.
“I decided to scale back and give myself a year to make the transition,” Robinson told the Times-Picayune. “I’m in great health. It was not a health-related decision … I’m happy with where I am. I’m excited about this. This is just a preliminary step.”
