WESH sports director Larry Ridley has started doing other television work outside of WESH.
TV columnist Hal Boedeker writes that Ridley has appeared in a commercial for Bud Light.
Local industry observers tell Boedeker that this is the first time a local news person has appeared in a national commercial.
Apparently the management at WESH does not have complaints about Ridley’s new commercial endeavors, as he still remains on the air. However, WESH General Manager Jim Carter would not comment to the Sentinel about Ridley’s participation in the commercial.
Ridley joined WESH in 2012, coming from WHDH-TV in Boston.
