FTVLive FIRST told you that Fox News Anchor Rick Folbaum was headed to WFOR in Miami and that he would bump longtime Anchor Elliot Rodriquez down the WFOR food chain.
WFOR has finally got around to confirming our report. The station says starting a week from Monday Folbaum will be anchoring the station’s 5:00 and 11:00 p.m. newscast.
Rodriguez stays at 6PM and tacks on the measly Noon show as well.
“I am thrilled to be joining the distinguished news team at CBS4,” Folbaum said in a statement. “Everyone in the news business knows that South Florida is one of the best news markets in the country. I’ve spent lots of time in this area ever since I was a kid. My wife and I are looking forward to raising our own children in this dynamic and diverse community.”
And while Folbaum is "thrilled to be joining" WFOR.... As for Rodriquez? Not so much.
