MIAMI - Local 10 is proud to announce that one of South Florida's most respected journalists is joining the team.
Bob Norman has worked for the Broward New Times for the past 13 years. In his reporting career, Bob has done remarkable work. He has broken countless big stories. He?s exposed corruption. He owned the Scott Rothstein story and many other scandals involving top political leaders in Broward County.
In a letter to staff, Bill Pohovey, Vice President and News Director at Local 10 News, wrote, "I am very happy to announce that one of the finest journalists in South Florida is bringing his talents to the best television station in the market."
Pohovey said Norman will contribute both on-air and online. His very popular blog, The Daily Pulp, will be moving to Local10.com, under the name Bob Norman?s Blog.
On his blog, Norman wrote, "The offer was pretty simple: Local 10 asked me if I wanted to bring my brand of journalism to the airwaves, and I accepted the challenge."
"It's a Post-Newsweek station with a longstanding dedication to high-quality political and government reporting. I've got a lot to learn, but I also bring something to the table, so it has the makings of a great match," Norman wrote.
Chuck Strouse, editor of the Miami New Times, told Local 10 on Friday, "I hate to see him go."
"He is the best newsman in South Florida and a great guy," Strouse said.
Before the New Times, Bob worked in Ft. Myers and Cincinnati.
