Doreen Gentzler’s last day on-air on NBC4 in Washington, D.C., was November 23, concluding a 33-year career.
In an interview with WTOP, she said she does not know what it’s going to feel like Monday morning, when she wakes up and does not have to go to work.
“It’s kind of strange to be leaving,” Gentzler said.
She told NBC Washington that she does not have a plan for what she will do next.
“I’m just going to take a break and reclaim some of my personal time … and really consider what my next chapter looks like,” she said.
Reflecting on her career, she said that there are two things she would advise her younger self: Don’t take yourself quite so seriously – “It’s only TV; it’s not brain surgery” – and “Writing is the most important skill that you can have.”
