MEET THE MORNING NEWS TEAM:

WSFL viewers also will recognize WPLG morning meteorologist Julie Durda, who provides weather forecasts for both the WPLG and WSFL morning newscasts.
MEET THE LATE NEWS TEAM:
The weeknight 10 p.m. newscast is anchored by WPLG’s Louis Aguirre. Louis has spent 22 years in the market and is a fan favorite.
Louis is joined by Eden Checkol, who joined WPLG from WISN-TV in Milwaukee, where she was a morning anchor. Eden previously worked in Madison, Wisconsin, and Duluth, Minnesota, after growing up in Minneapolis. Local 10’s Chief Certified Meteorologist Betty Davis provides her nightly weather forecasts and WPLG Sports Director Will Manso completes the team.
On weekends, the WSFL 10 p.m. newscast is anchored by WPLG’s Sanela Sabovic and Layron Livingston, with weather from meteorologist Luke Dorris.
