Monday was Rick Folbaum’s first day at WFOR as the station’s new lead co-anchor and judging by the emails in the SFLTV inbox, so far so good. They had him paired with Cynthia Demos who, it seems, could be on track to inherit Shannon Hori’s seat. They have her featured in the station new promos that invite viewers to “watch the pros”, sample video below if you can get it playing.
WFOR hired Folbaum away from FOXNews hoping he will be the jolt that gives the station a much-needed boost in the ratings. Whether this would work, we will have to wait a while to see how viewers respond.
