Ginger Gadsden is leaving WTSP…

(from – Ginger Gadsden, morning and noon anchor at St. Petersburg CBS affiliate WTSP-Ch. 10, will be leaving the station when her contract expires on June 30.

But at this time of layoffs and cutbacks in media, Gadsden, who has tired of working the morning shift, has no other job lined up. And she’s still committed to leaving.

“You know that feeling you get when you’ve made up your mind and you’re at peace with it?” said Gadsden, who came to work at WTSP in 2006. “That’s what I’m feeling. For me, it’s not sad, it’s exciting.”

After seven years of waking up at 2 a.m., Gadsden explained, she decided it was time to leave the morning shift. But WTSP, which placed former Miami anchor Charles Billi alongside longtime anchors Heather Van Nest and Reginald Roundtree in the station’s evening newscasts, declined to move her to a later schedule…..Cont….

Does WTSP promo cross ethical lines?

(from – For the first few seconds, it’s easy to think you’re watching a promotion for a news story on gender and driving, or a public service announcement.

“Welcome back everyone,” says WTSP-Ch. 10 morning anchor Ginger Gadsden, sitting on the set where she co-hosts the 10 News Morning Show. “A new study says men are … better drivers?”

Then she drops the first clue you’re not in TV news land anymore:

Best of the Bay 2009…

Tampa’s Creative Loafing has published it’s annual “Best of the Bay” list. Making the TV list this year…WTSP’s Ginger Gasden and retired WFLA anchor Bill Ratliff….read the whole list here.

(from -Best Morning AnchorGinger Gadsden
If you?re like us, the mornings make you consider murder. Thank God for Channel 10?s Ginger Gadsden, a fresh face on Bay area TV who brings smarts, spunk and a positive attitude to the airwaves five days a week. Gadsden anchors Ch. 10?s morning show and lunch-hour newscast, making both programs Best of the Bay-worthy thanks to her participation alone. The anchor manages to be smart without being an egghead, bubbly but not cloying, and she delivers the news as well as anyone on the station. And did we mention she?s a knockout?

Broadcaster?s phrase we?ll miss the most – Bill Ratliff?s ?Oh, Yeah?
When News Channel 8?s morning anchor Bill Ratliff retired from the NBC affiliate, we lost not only an intelligent anchor voice but the man who kept a wacky co-anchor Gayle Guyardo at bay with his ?Oh, yeah.?
