Best TV News Anchor Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach 2008 - Laurie Jennings WPLG-TV — Channel 10

Readers' Choice: Dwight Lauderdale

With those huge tigress eyes, that expressive yet low-key voice, and her girl-next-door smile, Laurie Jennings is the mother of all news anchors in South Florida. She's also the mother of twin boys, as all the veteran news watchers in Broward and Miami-Dade know. That's what really makes Jennings stand out — she's got a story behind her and she's been around long enough for people to know it. The young star left WSVN-TV after five years for New York City and MSNBC, stayed for a year, and returned to WPLG because she loves South Florida and wanted to start her family here (that's the story, anyway). And who wouldn't want to hang with Dwight Lauderdale, the coolest dude in South Florida history (may he retire in peace)?

I listen to channel 10 news daily and I'm a little upset. I learned today on the 6 oclock news  that the Miami Hearld has been sold. Why can't we hold on to any of our history in Miami? We are constantly selling and building every where not understanding somethings shoud not be for sale. It saddens me that know one seems to understand this.  Money has taken over in a big way. Why would we want more gambling in the Miami area? 

If there is a piece of land vacant anywhere in this City look out it want be for long. If you build they will come from every where. We seem to attract the World.  We need to focus on Educating our children and provide those men and women who protect and serve us with a decent salary as well as teachers. Do we really need more gambling in Dade County?

I know change is constant and there are those who will say jobs are important to the economy.Well, that's true, but at whose expense.Sincerely,Louise Perry jgibson1@bellsouth.net

Hi Laurie, I have watched you on the news for years.You're great. You were at my office at Mercy Hospital-Pharmacy Administration a few years ago to judge the Christmas door. I was sitting at the front desk. My father Fausto Curbelo is turning 100 years old next week. He was very well known in Manhattan, NY in the 40' and 50's. He had his own band but also played with Xavier Cuguat. We, the family, are having a luncheon for him this Saturday at Habana Vieja, 3622 Coral Way from 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm. I was wondering if you might want to interview him just for 1 or 2 minutes. He is a pianist and if you would like to see and hear him play go to google and enter his name Fausto Curbelo and up comes Fausto y Justina Curbelo. Click and you can hear and watch him playing. He can't see but a speck but he still plays daily. I would appreciate it so much if you could interview him. We would be so grateful. God bless. Thank you Carole Blanco 786-252-9986
