WPTV’s Laurel Sauer Might do More Than Just Trade Timeslots


The Palm Beach Post’s Page Two claims WPTV anchor veteran Laurel Sauer is headed for the exits.
Sauer allegedly inquired about a teaching job at Lynn University in Boca Raton. She, allegedly, told friends that WPTV might not renew her contract when it comes up for renewal later this year. Ouch!

WPEC can always coax her to come back and stay for a few years with them and kick WPTV while they’re down a bit?!

In October 2007 WPTV bounced Sauer from the 11pm slot after 18 years together with Jim Sackett, and then ended up losing said 11pm slot to WPEC in the 2007 November sweeps!

Is WPTV’s fizz running out?

  1. Things sure turned Sauer for them. What idiots. But I will resist the urge to go on a rant.

    You know what bothers me? That they thought Laurel was the “problem” or whatever. Why not blame Sackett? Oh wait… He’s a man.

  2. i have a tip that wpec have hired juan carlos funjul. he will be there weekend anchor/reporter.he was working at wgn tv in chicago as a reporter/back up anchor. he used to work at wpbf tv, wsvn tv,and wptv tv as a reporter and hes’s from west palm bach
