Yet another sadness has settled over Detroit and the surrounding metropolitan area. Robbie Timmons the venerable news anchor announced her retirement from WXYZ-Channel 7. Robbie has said that she plans on devoting her life to CANTER , an organization that help rescue thoroughbred horses. "I'm excited about the opportunity to dedicate more of my time and energy to the organization that I feel so passionately about."
Station VP and General Manager Ed Fernandez says "WXYZ has been fortunate to have Robbie's talent and experience as part of our Action News team. Always the consummate professional, Robbie has played an important role in the success of WXYZ-TV and we wish her all the best as she starts this new chapter in her life."
Robbie also wrote a childrens book "Twoey and the goat" which is now under consideration to become a feature film. Her last day as an anchor will be October 14.
