Nick Spinetto, Lindsay Liepman Leaving WINK

WINK husband and wife team Nick Spinetto and Lindsay Liepman are leaving the Fort Myers CBS-affiliate.

Spinetto, a general assignment reporter at the station, is moving to Manchester ABC-affiliate WMUR as a reporter. “Thank you for all the support and sharing your stories with me over the past 6 years,” he wrote on Twitter. “It’s been an incredible experience.”

Liepman, the noon anchor, is expected to stay at WINK through mid-September before joining him in New Hampshire, according to the News-Press. The couple have both worked at the station for six years.

Lindsay Liepman to Afternoons, Jennifer Stacy to Mornings at WINK

Anchors Lindsay Liepman (pictured) and Jennifer Stacy are swapping newscasts at WINK in Fort Myers.

The changes were made because Liepman, the former morning anchor who recently returned from maternity leave, wanted to work more regular hours, according to the News-Press. She will anchor the noon newscast and report in the afternoons. Her husband, WINK reporter Nick Spinetto, will take paternity leave to be with the newborn.

Stacy, formerly the noon anchor, will handle the morning newscasts, anchoring from 5-7 a.m. on WINK and from 7-9 a.m. on sister station WXCW. Reporter Alissa Reitmeier has also joined the morning team as the traffic anchor.

WINK Reporter Nearly Dies Inside Live Truck

WINK reporter Nick Spinetto certainly didn’t expect to end up in the hospital when he went out into the field last Friday afternoon. But through an unusual set of circumstances, that’s exactly what happened.

Spinetto was in the live truck preparing a story for the CBS-affiliate’s 4 p.m. newscast when he started to feel strange.

“Dizzy. Disoriented,” is the way Spinetto described the feeling in a recent email exchange with TVSpy. It turns out that he was suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning.

“My photographer (who was also feeling sick) suspected carbon monoxide,” Spinetto told TVSpy. “He ordered me out of the truck, which is when I collapsed. He called 911. I was taken to the hospital for carbon monoxide poisoning. I was treated with oxygen then released after about 6 hours. The photographer was treated at the scene. I’m lucky he realized it was carbon monoxide. His quick actions saved my life.” Read more
