Were the LaGrones investigated in retaliation…?

(edited from – Nearly three weeks after WPTV investigative reporter Katie LaGrone ran a story looking into questionable shootings by the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office, she and her husband, WPBF anchor Paul LaGrone, have become the subject of an investigation by the Florida Department of Children and Families.

While this may seem like a coincidence, some are beginning to wonder if the LaGrones are now a target of the Sheriff’s office.

LaGrone’s story, which aired on April 23, was one in a series on WPTV called Line of Fire, looking into how the PBSO investigates shootings involving its own deputies….Cont….

Paul & Katie LaGrone investigated for child neglect…

(edited from – WPTV investigative reporter Katie LaGrone and her husband, WPBF anchorman Paul LaGrone, are being investigated by the state’s Department of Children and Families after neighbors reported that one of the couple’s two children was routinely left alone to roam their streets.

Gossip Extra has confirmed that West Palm Beach cops were called to the LaGrone’s home  twice on May 7, at noon and 2 p.m. The second time, the officer brought a DCF case worker with him.

A neighbor of the LaGrones who asked to remain anonymous said someone tipped off DCF that the LaGrones allegedly leave their child unattended. Read the rest of this entry →

Oh SH*T! – Did I just say that?

The LaGrones are now fully employeed…

(edited from - Good news for Katie LaGrone. The former WBBH NBC2 and WZVN ABC7 reporter recently moved to West Palm Beach after her husband, former NBC2 anchor Paul LaGrone, took a morning anchor job at WPBF.

Now comes word that Katie has landed a new TV job herself. She’s been hired as an investigative reporter at WPTV-TV, the local NBC station. The couple will find themselves competing against each other, but between his early a.m. hours and their toddler son, Jacob, this likely won’t be a problem.

LaGrone’s headed to West Palm Beach…

(edited from - A couple of weeks back, the News-Press wrote about the imminent departure of WBBH NBC2 4 p.m. and 11 p.m. anchor Paul LaGrone and his wife, NBC2 reporter Katie LaGrone. At the time, it wasn’t being revealed where the couple was moving.

Turns out, they are headed to the West Palm Beach area, where Paul will be the new morning anchor on WPBF-TV, the ABC station there. Katie is also pursuing TV news opportunities in the market.

The move is a sensitive one because Paul will be taking over on a show once hosted by the popular anchorwoman Kristin Hoke, who is in an ongoing battle with breast cancer. It’s been an emotional roller coaster for Hoke’s WPBF co-workers as well as her many fans.  

Best of luck to Paul and Katie (and their 18-month-old son, Jacob) and, while we’re at it, prayers for Kristin.  (edited from
