WTOC Senior Active: Jorge Moran


After 37 years in the hectic world of network news, Jorge Moran could use a little down time.

But the only reason he sits down these days is to put another activity on his increasingly crowded schedule.

"I play tennis, doubles, three times a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday," said Moran, who keeps track of his many activities on a large desk calendar. "I line dance on Sundays, once a week."

Moran retired to Sun City 13 years ago, but has never really stopped moving.

"I square dance with my wife on Tuesday," said Moran. "We play pinochle and play bridge on Friday nights, my wife and I. It's like the saying, retirement is to do things, whatever you want to do, and that's exactly what I'm doing."

The Morans also travel extensively, having seen most of the world.

"We've been all over," said Moran. "South America, Europe, Asia, North America, Central America."

But some of their favorite trips are just a couple hours up the road.

"We have our son in Charleston," Moran said. "We try to go there every other Sunday."

Thursday is the only day of the week when Moran does not schedule any activities.

But that doesn't mean he's not busy that day, too. He usually works on his gardening in his yard on Thursday.

At home or on the road, on the tennis court or the dance floor, Moran has found plenty to do and has enjoyed doing all of it.

"Well, first of all, you have to keep your mind going," he says. "That's the main thing, activity. We're not sitting in a rocking chair twiddling our thumbs.  A lot of times, I would love to do more, but just can't fit it in the schedule."
