remember this guy? Sure you do. Former WSVN anchor Charles Billi (now at WTSP, Tampa) went national by way of Jon Stewart’s Daily Show monologue as Stewart picked on the media for over hyping the “knockout game” and other supposed dangerous trends.
Former WSVN anchor Charles Billi has unretired himself and come back to the daily grind of TV news says TvSpy. He’s now hitting the pavement for WTSP, CBS affiliate in Tampa, and will also be a fill-in anchor when needed.
Just got news that WSVN anchor Charles Billi will be leaving the station in February 2011. A memo went out to everyone at WSVN today announcing his departure. I’m told he plans to focus on his net venture BigTampa.com.
Charles Billi joined WSVN as a reporter in 1998, they promoted him to an anchor of the weekend newscasts when Charles Perez left WSVN for the ABC affiliate in New York City. Billi got promoted again in 2008 to weekdays alongside Lynn Martinez when then WSVN anchor Tom Haynes left for the FOX affiliate in Atlanta, Georgia.
