For No. 3 on our Worst People in TV News of 2018, we head down to Florida’s panhandle and that is where you will find WMBB (Panama City) News Director Tom Lewis.
It is likely that you have not heard of Lewis since he has spent his entire life in small market television. He is a former Anchor that still itches to be on the air. When Hurricane Michael slammed into the Florida Panhandle, Lewis seemed to appear on the newscast as much as the anchors.
Nexstar sent a number of people to the Panhandle to help this tiny station cover a big story in the aftermath of Michael. FTVLive talk to a number of those that were sent into help out and many came away with the same opinion. “He’s just not a very nice guy,” said one of those sent to the area by Nexstar.
Lewis likes to think of himself as God’s gift to TV news, despite the fact that he never made it out of a tiny market.
FTVLive had one conversation with Lewis on the phone and he acted like a complete jerk.
During Hurricane Michael, Lewis’ home took on some major damage.
When bad things happen to good people, that sucks. When bad things happen to bad people, that’s karma.
Check back next hour to see who comes in as the 3rd Best Person in TV News for 2018.
