A special honor is being unveiled today to former WTVT reporter Warren Elly.
The Hillsborough County courthouse will name its media room after Warren Elly, who was known and respected for his coverage of local courts, crime, politics and NASA’s space program.
Tampa’s WTVT has named Linda Hurtado co-anchor of the 5 p.m. and anchor of the noon newscasts. She fills the void left by Denise White, who recently retired from the station the day before Thanksgiving.
Hurtado comes to WTVT from up the road at ABC affiliate WFTS. As Florida News Center reported, Hurtado left WFTS in May of this year to “spend more time with her family” and work on her career as an author. Looking back, it looks like that family time might have been used to sit out a non-compete clause.
Prior to her 25 year stint at WFTS, she worked at Wilmington, NC, Fort Myers and Orlando.
Tampa’s WTVT has promoted reporter/fill-in anchor Alcides Segui. He will be the station’s new weekend morning co-anchor. Segui will anchor alongside Anjuli Davis on the Saturday and Sunday morning newscasts.
In addition to his new anchoring role, Segui will also continue to work as a reporter during the weekday morning shift.
He joined WTVT in 2008, coming from WWSB in Sarasota. Prior to WWSB he was a reporter at WAAY Huntsville, AL and as at Tallahassee’s WCTV before that.
