Jennifer Bisram left her reporting job at WSVN a couple weeks ago, and now we know where she moved to! At another circle seven station. Bisram is now a weekday morning reporter at WXYZ, the Scripps-owned ABC affiliate in Detroit. Bisram had a rather short stint at WSVN having joined 7News in May 2013 from Orlando FOX affiliate WOFL.

Jennifer Bisram also became a published author recently. Her children’s book got published in August. It’s titled First Day of School: Do You Want To Be My Friend? and focuses on getting past the anxiety of the first day of school.

WSVN morning anchor Alexis Rivera is no longer with WSVN, SFLTV just learned. Rivera, who joined 7News in 2011 as reporter, got promoted to Today In Florida co-anchor when Richard Lemus left in February 2012. Details are a bit foggy, she either did not have her contract renewed or management decided to take advantage of the opt out clause in Rivera’s contract. The clause is in effect once every two years, and allows either the talent or the TV station to end the contract for any reason without penalty.  Also management may have offered Alexis Rivera the opportunity to go back to her reporting job but she allegedly declined.

Come Monday, Danielle Knox will be joining Christine Cruz and Diana Diaz at the desk.

WHDH Boston, WSVN’s sister station, went live today with the newsroom refresh they had been working on since early August. That animated strip you see running along the second floor of the studio is what WSVN is also installing in the newsplex. The rest of the plex refresh will have its own look, which includes more monitors, and the complete replacement of the wall of television sets behind the news anchors, it’s been there since the 90s! New graphics are also coming.

WSVN is shooting for a full set reveal in time for November sweeps which begin October 30.

A supercut:
