After Hiring 3 Reporters, WFTV News Director Bob Jordan Says Station is ‘Full’

With the recent addition of three new reporters, WFTV, the ABC-affiliate in Orlando, is done hiring, at least for the time being.

“We’re full,” news director Bob Jordan told the Orlando Sentinel. “I don’t have any openings. Right now, we’re booked up.”

WFTV’s three new reporters are Renee Stoll, Lori Brown and Racquel Asa. Stoll, who joined WFTV from WINK in Fort Myers, started last week; Brown, who was previously at WMC in Memphis, started yesterday. Asa starts early next month, after she finishes out her time at WSYR in Syracuse.
