WFTV Reporter to Switch Coasts

In ABC, Florida, Hirings, Orlando-Daytona Beach-Melbourne on February 2, 2011 at 3:15 am

Reporter Eric Rasmussen is leaving Orlando ABC affiliate WFTV next month for a job in San Francisco.

From the Orlando Sentinel:

“My time at WFTV has been the best experience of my career,” Rasmussen said in an e-mail today. “I just couldn’t pass up an opportunity to return to the Bay Area — I grew up near San Jose.”


Rasmussen joined the ABC affiliate in 2007. The Sentinel reports Rasmussen won an Edward R. Murrow Award in 2005.

Side note: my computer’s on the fritz, so I’m updating it from my phone. That’s my explanation for the lack of indents or other HTML formatting.
