Bruzual decided enough was enough when Scott’s office reached out to Bright House Network’s Spanish language channel InfoMas.

“Ginger Gadsden will be a terrific addition to our early evening newscasts,” WKMG VP and GM Skip Valet said in a statement. “Ginger is a compelling storyteller and an accomplished Journalist. Like her Co-Anchors Matt Austin and Lisa Bell, Ginger is passionate about the News.”
The station said she will co-anchor the 5:30 p.m. show with Matt Austin and solo the 7:00 p.m.
“I asked to be released from my News 13 contract to go free agent, and they agreed,” Torres told Sentinel media reporter Hal Boedeker. “It just felt like I was always going to be backing up Lou [Frey] and Dick [Batchelor], and I wanted the opportunity to go elsewhere and be The Guy.”
Torres has worked at News 13 since January 2012.
Orlando ABC affiliate WFTV is adding two to its news team next month, according to the Orlando Sentinel: Stephanie Bertini (pictured) who will join the station as a reporter, and Shannon Butler, who will freelance for the station.

In addition to being a top reporter, Lisa is a terrific person and absolutely shines on the anchor desk.”
Bell will co-anchor with Matt Austin.
