Florida Anchor Calls Out Governor for Avoiding Her

News 13 anchor Ybeth Bruzual took to the airwaves to call out Florida Governor Rick Scott for ignoring her interview requests.

She said she’d been booking Gubernatorial candidates to appear on her show Political Connections which airs in Tampa and Orlando and asked Scott to come on, but was ignored.

Bruzual decided enough was enough when Scott’s office reached out to Bright House Network’s Spanish language channel InfoMas. When Bright House told Scott’s office Bruzual would do the InfoMas interview, the Governor’s office told the station they wanted to choose the interviewer and he would only talk about Hispanic Outreach.

“Our management agreed that it would set a dangerous precedent to accede to such conditions and declined the campaign’s request,” said Bruzual.
