An internal memo was sent at WSVN announcing that reporter Alexis Rivera is being promoted to Today in Florida anchor, replacing Richard Lemus who appears to be leaving the station and taking a much-needed break. Richard is one of the long-timers at WSVN. He joined in 1995 as a producer of the then newly minted Deco Drive. Two years later he went to WAWS in Jacksonville, FL to be a reporter but would come back to WSVN 8 months later again as a reporter. When at the end of 2004 WSVN saw the departures of weekend anchor Charles Perez to WABC, morning anchor Delaine Mathieu, and Beatriz Canals before that, Richard Lemus was promoted to morning anchor and has been there since.
