Linda Hurtado replaces Denise White at WTVT….

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.
