As Florida News Center reported two months ago, WWSB-TV anchor Lauren Dorsett announced that she would be departing the Sarasota station after November books. Dorsett is headed to her native Southern California to be close to her family, but has yet to announce any future employment or future work in television. Her final day is tomorrow, November 25th.
She joined WWSB in April 2010 as a transplant from its sister station, WTXL-TV in Tallahassee. In just a short three years, the blonde bomb-shell has captured the hearts of Sarasota…or at least those of the bosses at WWSB. The station has planned a tribute to the three-year tenured anchor, has devoted a special section on its website , and has peppered MySunCoast.com with promo banners just for her departure. The station writes..
ABC 7’s Lauren Dorsett…over the past three and a half years, you’ve come to know, and love, her as weeknight anchor of Your Suncoast News. Now, as Lauren prepares to say good-bye, we look back at some of her most memorable moments…and hear from organizations that have benefited from Lauren’s work in the community. Join ABC 7 for “A Suncoast Send-Off for Lauren”…beginning Monday at 11:00. To send your good wishes to Lauren, post your comments at the bottom of this page.
Not to take away from the career or person that is Lauren Dorsett (and we do truly mean that), but does anyone think this a tad much for an anchor who has only been with the station for three years and is not even from the area? It certainly helps to be blonde and beautiful (again, no offense to Ms. Dorsett…as she is blonde and beautiful) to garner this much attention.
