WFOR Taps Jim DeFede for Sunday Morning Show

WFOR investigative reporter Jim DeFede has been tapped to host a Sunday morning show on the Miami CBS O&O.

“Facing South Florida with Jim DeFede,” which launched last week and will broadcast live beginning this Sunday, replaces “News and Views with Eliott Rodriguez.” It airs at 11:30 a.m. and features interviews with politicians and community leaders.

“We are going to try and make it not just informative but also entertaining — a radical concept for Sunday morning,” DeFede told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

DeFede joined WFOR in 2006 as a regular commentator on the evening newscast after a long career in print journalism.
