WIVB Reporter Roughed Up During Bullying Report

Lou Raguse, a reporter for Buffalo CBS affiliate WIVB, found himself the target of a pair of men on trial for bullying a man who has Tourette syndrome.

The men are accused of stalking a Dunkirk man named Mikey Gonzales.  “When aggravated, Mikey makes noises and uncontrollably slaps himself in the face,” said the station’s website.  “Years of bullying has caused Mikey to hit himself so many times he lost sight in one eye.”  The pair of suspects are accused of aggravating Mikey, videotaping his outbursts, then posting the video to youtube.

Raguse was standing outside the courthouse as the men left their arraignment.  When the WIVB reporter first began asking the two suspects if they were going to fight the charges, he lost his microphone in a scuffle.  Then later, one of the men charged Raguse and shoved him into a light pole.  You can watch the report after the jump.

Emily Guggenmos, Lou Raguse Join Buffalo’s WIVB

There are two new hires at Buffalo CBS-affiliate WIVB: Lou Raguse and Emily Guggenmos (pictured).

Raguse joins the station from KMSB in Tucson, where news operations were shut down earlier this month. Guggenmos also joins WIVB from Tucson, where she was the weekend co-anchor at KVOA.

The pair met while working in Sioux Falls — Guggenmos at KDLT and Raguse at KELO. They were married in 2010.

“Emily and Lou are both strong journalists who will fit in perfectly with our winning team here,” news director Joseph Schlaerth tells TVSpy via email.

KMSB Anchor Tells Viewers He’s Losing His Job

It’s probably the most personal news KMSB anchor Lou Raguse has ever had to deliver to Tucson viewers. Following Belo’s announcement that the company was handing over news production at KMSB to Raycom Media’s KOLD, Raguse went on the air and told everyone that he was now out of a job.

“Beginning February 1st, Raycom will produce this newscast on Fox 11 as well as a two-hour morning newscast,” Raguse, who has been with KMSB since 2008, informed viewers at the top of the Fox-affiliate’s 9 p.m. newscast. “For right now, it means that all the news, sports, engineering, and production people here at Fox 11 are out of a job by that date.” Video inside… Read more
