Doreen Gentzler retiring from News4 in D.C. after 33 Years

Longtime WRC/NBC4 news anchor Doreen Gentzler will be retiring at the end of November.

“I have some personal news to share this evening,” Gentzler told her viewers on News4 at 6. “It may cause me to get a little emotional, so I’ll just say it outright. I’ve decided to retire. Not an easy choice, but something I’ve been considering for a while … I’ve been working here for more than half my life. The babies that I had during the ’90s have grown up and moved out.”

Gentzler, a native of Arlington, Virginia, returned home to the Washington area in 1989 to join Jim Vance, Bob Ryan and George Michael. On her first newscast,Vance welcomed her by saying, “This is Doreen, folks. Doreen Gentzler. She’s going to be with us for quite a while.”

Thirty-three years later, states WRC, “it’s safe to say Vance was right.”

According to The Washington Post, she co-anchored the most popular local TV newscast in D.C. for over three decades.

Gentzler, adds WRC, “has played a key role in the station’s ratings success, anchoring News4 at 6 and News4 at 11 through her entire tenure and reporting throughout the world, including in Bosnia and Ecuador and aboard the USNS Comfort hospital ship. But she’s best known for her reporting in the D.C. area, where she has served as the station’s medical reporter for more than 30 years. Her clear, intelligent approach to telling these stories has provided important information, which some have called lifesaving.”
