WTSP/HCSO make friends…

(from WTSP.com) – Management from WTSP/10 Connects met Thursday afternoon with Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee and members of his staff to discuss his concerns over WTSP reporter Mike Deeson. Sheriff Gee, along with Chief Deputy Joe Docobo and Deputy Larry McKinnon of the Public Information Office met with 10 Connects General Manager Ken Tonning and News Director Darren Richards. In that meeting, Sheriff Gee expressed his concerns over several of Mike Deeson’s reports that were critical of the Sheriff’s Office. 10 Connects management listened to those concerns and is addressing them. This meeting took place after the Sheriff’s Office suspended contact with WTSP/10 Connects on Wednesday because they feel Mike Deeson has a personal vendetta against the Sheriff. In Thursday’s meeting, both the Sheriff’s Office and 10 Connects reached some common ground and the Sheriff has agreed to lift the suspension of contact.

After the meeting HCSO released the following statement…

Today Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee met with WTSP 10 Connects General Manager Ken Tonning and News Director Darren Richards. As a result, the Sheriff’s Office is confident they will address our concerns that were posted on 30th September’s media release. In light of WTSP’s cooperation, HCSO will rescind the suspension of contact and at this point will reserve any future comments pending the out come of WTSP’s internal review.
