That was a cool segment but it has come to an end. WPLG has retired the yellow cab, a 1967 Chevy Marathon.
Fortunately it didn’t go into a junk yard, Todd Tongen who also reported the segment and drove the taxi bought it for $510 bux. Cool!
Last September I got a tip from an insider who said that due to WPLG dropping the 5pm newscast Todd Tongen will be one of the people who will leave the station at the end of his contract.
