We knew it was going to happen eventually, good thing it won’t be until end of 2022.

Here are the details from 6abc:

Longtime 6abc/WPVI-TV veteran Jim Gardner announced he is dialing back his schedule with Action News and plans to retire at the end of 2022.   He informed his colleagues of his decision to reduce his schedule by continuing to anchor the 6 p.m. newscast, with Ducis Rodgers and Meteorologist Cecily Tynan, but no longer anchoring the 11 p.m. newscast. His last late newscast is scheduled for early January. WPVI will announce his replacement in the coming months.

Jim Gardner will speak to viewers about his upcoming plans tonight on Action News at 6 p.m.
