WTXL meteorologist is a trail blazer….

Love comes in all colors, shapes and sizes, and WTXL chief meteorologist Casanova Nurse is a prime example of this. He and his partner of 9 years have become one of the first gay couples in the State of Florida to foster-to-adopt (not just one child, but three!). Read the heart warming story below.  (photo c/o of ProudParenting.com)

(from HuffingtonPost.com) – Inspiration is a living thing. In the act of making ordinary people do extraordinary things, it gets passed on. Those inspired become those that inspire and, in this way, one candle is used to light another.

Couples like Daniel Nurse and his husband, Casanova, a thirtysomething couple from Tallahassee, Florida, are inspiring. Together since 2006 and married on Valentine’s Day of this year, Danny has taken on the Florida House Judiciary Committee (testimony against anti-gay adoption, i.e., Bill 7111), biased caseworkers and even an attorney who initially (and illegally) refused to represent them during adoption proceedings, and have successfully adopted three beautiful children into their loving home.

Alison Posey has been named as the new Sports Director at Tallahassee’s WTXL-TV. Her first day was June 10th.

To our knowledge this makes Posey the first female to be named sports director in Florida and definitely the first in Tallahassee.

She comes from just up I-10 at Panama City’s WMBB, where she was sports reporter and anchor.

Newlywed WTXL anchors are victims of hit and run…

(edited from WTXL.com) – Tallahassee Police are searching for a suspect after a hit and run early Sunday morning.

Just after 1:00 a.m., a Subaru driven by WTXL- TV weekend sports anchor Dave Griffiths and a Hyundai driven by WTXL-TV anchor/reporter Christina Griffiths, were stopped at the light when a silver Mitsubishi crashed into the back of the Subaru, sending it into the back of the Hyundai. A few seconds later, the driver drove away from the scene. A witness decided to follow the driver and says he saw the car into a wood area behind a local restaurant. The witness says he saw a woman in a gray shirt get out of the car and walk away.

The newly-wed husband and wife team were both headed home at the time. Neither was injured, besides a couple of bruises and some soreness the next morning. Both say they’re happy the situation did not turn out worse and are thankful for the witnesses who stopped to make sure they were okay and to tell police what they saw, especially the first witness who stopped and immediately told them he would follow the driver.  (edited from WTXL.com)

Greg Angel departs WTXL…

WTXL morning anchor Greg Angel anchored his final newscast at the Tallahassee station this morning. Angel is leaving to join an unnamed West Palm Beach station.

Angel said to viewers on Facebook: I’ve come to a turn in the path that now has me going in a different direction. An exciting new direction.

It remains bittersweet to share that I am leaving WTXL for a great new opportunity with a television news station in West Palm Beach.

Angel joined WTXL in July of 2010 from the WPBN-TV as a reporter, but quickly ascended to the anchor desk, eventually becoming morning week day morning co-anchor.

Michelle Rotella and WTXL part ways…

Multiple sources tell Florida News Center that WTXL morning meteorologist Michelle Rotella has been let go from the Tallahassee station. Her departure comes just short of her one year anniversary at the station.

Recent posts on Rotella’s Facebook page state that she is “headed north for some family time” and that she will “be back on the airwaves soon.” However, sources say that she is done, at least at WTXL. Her bio was removed from the station’s website earlier this week.

Rotella joined WTXL in September 2013, coming from Scranton, PA’s WNEP-TV.
