WFLA does the anchor shuffle…

WFLA has announced that Eugene “Gene” Ramirez (right #1) will be the new weekday morning co-anchor at the Tampa station. He will co-anchor the newscasts from 4:30 to 7 a.m. with co-anchor Gayle Guyardo. He officially starts at the station January 26th.

Sources tell Florida News Center that Ramirez will be filling the chair that is currently occupied by Rod Carter (right #2) . Carter will be moving to the weekend shift, to anchor the evening/night newscasts. Current weekend anchor Josh Thomas (right #3) is moving to the weekday shift and will serve as general assignment reporter.

Ramirez comes to WFLA from Miami’s WSVN, where he was general assignment reporter and regular fill-in host for the station’s entertainment show Deco Drive. Prior to WSVN he worked as a contributor on CNN’s various formats, a morning anchor at Miami’s WSFL, a reporter for Orlando’s cable-only News 13 and as a reporter at the Spanish-language WTPH in Fort Myers.

Carter has anchored the weekday morning shift on WFLA since 2010. He came to WFLA from Media General sister station, WTVM in Birmingham, AL. Prior to WTVM, he worked as a reporter and fill in anchor at WFLA.
