Tampa Reporter Leaving TV to Work for Florida Congressman

rudie croppedWTSP reporter Preston Rudie is leaving the Tampa CBS affiliate to work as communications director for Rep David Jolly (R-FL).

“For the past 23 years, I’ve been serving the public and helping give a voice to the voiceless as a journalist,” said Rudie in a statement. “I think my years of working in the area and experience covering the issues that affect Pinellas County will help me better serve the people of the 13th District.”

Rudie started his TV career at WGBA in Green Bay, WI and worked at WITI in Milwaukee, WI, before moving to WTSP in 2002.

He officially starts Monday, April 21.
