Bill Martin isn't sailing off into retirement yet but he will be scaling back his duties at Fox 8.

The station announced today Martin's new multi-year contract will have the anchor working Fox 8's 5 p.m. evening newscast but stepping away from the 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. shows starting March 1.

“It’s really the best of both worlds for me at this stage of my career. I get to concentrate on some outside interests I have while still remaining with my FOX 8 family for years to come. I look forward to continuing to torment Tracy on a daily basis at 5 p.m.” Martin said in a story by the station.

Lou Magglio will take his spot in the 10 o'clock slot.

“We are thrilled to continue to have Bill anchor our number one rated 5 p.m. newscast. We are also very fortunate to have a roster filled with the best anchors and reporters that help us remain the most watched news station in Northeast Ohio throughout the day," said General Manager Paul Perozeni in a release.
