Roger Weber has announced his retirement from Detroit NBC affiliate WDIV.
“After nearly 37 years at WDIV, I’m moving on,” Weber wrote on the station facebook page. “I’ll put down the microphone and pick up my seven iron, fly rod, and tennis racket. I’ll miss the good people of Local 4 and the chance to share stories with our loyal viewers.”
He started at WDIV in 1978 and has worked as a morning news anchor and as the Lansing Bureau Chief. He started his career in 1969 while he was still a student at Bowling Green University. He went on to work at WTVG and WNWO in Toledo, Ohio after graduation.
Weber told viewers, “My last day is June 26th. I’ll keep you all posted as I head down the home stretch.”
