WFOR reporter Jorge Estevez is leaving the station and going back to his old playground in Orlando, ABC affiliate WFTV, according to Orlando Sentinel. Estevez joined WFOR from WFTV in 2006 as a weekday morning anchor after Susan Barnett left for KYW in Philadelphia. Shortly after that his “office spouse” Cynthia Demos, who was also at WFTV, got hired away and the two ended up leading the weekday morning newscasts on CBS4. That lasted until June 2008, when WFOR management decided to make their sports director Jim Berry a morning news anchor and bumped Estevez away to a reporter.
Jorge Estevez will report for WFTV and also anchor the 6:30pm and 10pm newscasts at independent WRDQ which WFTV produces. His first day will be June 14.
