Longtime news anchor to retire

2 Comments | Leave a Comment


A local news anchor announced Tuesday he will retire this year after decades of broadcasting the news to Greenville and eastern North Carolina.

WNCT’s Allan Hoffman, who has anchored the Channel 9 newscast for 26 years, announced plans to retire from nightly newscasts, effective sometime in the fall, he said.


“While that means you and I won’t be together every night ... I won’t disappear from the airwaves here,” Hoffman said in his on-air announcement. “I hope to provide specialty reports from time to time, but I feel it is a good opportunity to step back and spend more time with my family.”

Allan Hoffman

Thanks for your comments Mr. Cox. I agree. In addition, Mr. Hoffman has volunteered his services to many worthy organizations in our area. In doing that, he has made our community a better place. We need more people like him. Thanks a million Mr. Hoffman!! We love you.

Allan Hoffman is a decorated veteran hero with valor awards

In addition to his award winning career as a newscaster, journalist and director, Allan Hoffman was a distinguished combat helicopter pilot of the Vietnam War whose valor awards speak more about him than he would ever say about himself. His recognition of military members and veterans during his media career reminded us of the unselfish sacrifice of those who served the nation in uniform. Military public service was always honored in his broadcasts. Allan's heroism for our nation is not well-known, but his bravery in combat may be the most important thing we know about his personal commitment to duty, honor and country.
