Johnny Diaz from the SunSentinel has a story on social media and how viewers are connecting to TV talent. If you guessed that people have a lot to say and love giving a piece of their mind to the people they watch on TV you are correct. And even more unsurprising, often they are jerks. WSVN’s Lynn Martinez admits that the harsh criticism people lob at her about what she wears or her hair style affects her.
What I thought was even more interesting, Kelley Dunn from WPTV told Johnny Diaz she follows back with people who leave negative comments on her Facebook page and even calls some of them on the phone!
Hearing rumors that WSVN boss people have made a decision to promote Reid Lamberty as the successor to the recently departed Charles Billi. The bosses initially gave Lamberty and Reed Cowan each a week next to Lynn Martinez with Cowan going first, but Lamberty is now in his third week to anchor alongside Lynn.
Allegedly, all that’s left now is ironing out the bureaucratic stuff like his contract and Lynn Martinez will have a brand new TV husband!
