A new reporter by the name Joshua Ufot, or Joshua Landon as you will soon know him, has joined WTVJ. He comes from WZVN, ABC7, in Fort Myers where he freelanced. From what I’ve heard, he’s full time at WTVJ, though it’s possible he’s freelanceing again. Unfortunately for him, being new and his reporting skills won’t be the only things people will be talking about. He was arrested on October 24th for an alleged DUI. His hearing on the case is set for December 12th. That’s his mugshot photo above, taken at 3:30 AM on October 25th.
“A Collier sheriff’s deputy picked up Landon after he was allegedly seen driving erratically on SR 90 according to the arrest report.”
His last day at the station was five days later. ABC7 managers declined to talk about Landon’s departure, and Landon couldn’t be reached for comment.
So we don’t really know if him leaving ABC7 is related to the DUI. Welcome to NBC6, Josh…
Though we should mention, he has pleaded not guilty, and his case is still pending. The hearing is set for December 12th.

Another new face at NBC6, Joe Carter and his segment Carter’s Clicks. For a station going under, they’re sure hiring like crazy. Basically, Joe Carter’s job is to report on websites that viewers send in via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Hmm, SFLTV is a website! Maybe he should feature us? He comes from Greenville, SC as a former sports guy. He is even already filling in for anchors on the NBC6 morning show. My thoughts about Carter? I like him, he reads with his own style, and would make a great anchor… one day. Has anyone else seen him in the AM?
Lots of changes at NBC6!
