Sources tell SFLTV that WPLG anchor/reporter Jen Herrera and meteorologist Roland Steadham are on their way out! Allegedly, the station has decided not to renew Herrera’s contract, and Steadham got replaced by recent hire Jennifer Correa after just a year at WPLG, he joined Local 10 in August 2013.
One source told us “It feels like no one is safe” with Herrera getting bounced after eleven years at the station. She joined Local 10 in May 2003 as a reporter but it was her internship at WPLG when she was 18 years old that got her excited about a career in the news business. She’s also a South Florida native and a graduate from Florida State University.
We should note that Herrera’s former co-anchor partner Jason Martinez left Local 10 the same way. First they moved him from the morning desk to reporter then eventually he faded out.
WPLG Local 10 management has been on a roll lately as they look to improve ratings even though in 2013 WPLG brought in a little over $71 million dollars in revenue, second only to WSVN if you don’t consider WTVJ and WSCV together.
