Sabrina Rodriguez, a former Springfield ABC40 news anchor, resigned from FOX40 in Sacramento on Tuesday. She was arrested and released on $10,000 bail after an investigation revealed that she, along with her fiancé, conspired to commit theft. She will be arraigned on August 29th, facing charges of theft, burglary, and conspiracy. She worked at ABC40 in Springfield for 2 years, and won an Associated Press award for her work there.
Sunday morning (August 10th) at 8 am the Republican gubernatorial candidates, Tom Foley and John McKinney, will appear together in a roundtable format. WTNH’s Mark Davis will moderate and will be joined by Sue Haigh of the Associated Press. It’s the only “live” broadcast TV appearance by both candidates before the primary. The program will include questions submitted by WTNH viewers.
Thirty years ago today (August 6), broadcaster Mark Davis and photographer Joe Sferrazza started working at WTNH-TV in New Haven (“Action News” at the time). They were paired together and are still working as a team now (with the exception of the years when Mark was on the anchor desk). The two are a fixture around the state capitol and while Mark is the “face” of the report, Joe knows the 187 members of the legislature just as well. WTNH may not have a Sunday interview program but on a day-to-day basis it has the team of Mark & Joe consistently roaming the halls of the capitol or on the campaign trail. Happy Anniversary, you two!
Dean Pagani has been involved in the Connecticut media scene since the early 80s; he’s been a radio news director, gubernatorial spokesperson and communications consultant. Dean moved to DC a few years ago where he worked as a US Senator’s communications director and ran a successful website focusing on the nation’s governors. His many friends and former colleagues will be happy to know he’s back in Connecticut (part-time) and working with Hartford-based communications firm McDowell Jewett (trust us, we have a solid source on this one).
Maggie Slysz, currently a social media reporter on the FOX CT morning show, has been named a full-time member of the morning news team.
