Some O-Town folks are on the move in this TGIF report:
Denise Cullen, former sports director at Central Florida News 13, has joined the Orlando Predators as their new director of communications. “Working for Orlando’s only professional football team is another step up in my career. I can’t imagine a better job,” Cullen said in a news release. Cullen made her mark in Orlando TV, working her way up from sports intern at WFTV-Channel 9 to being the first female to head a sports department at an Orlando station. Cullen has been an avid football fan ever since she can remember and at one point had dreams of playing in the NFL. She said, “I told my parents I wanted to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers and wear #88 just like Lyn Swann. If only I were taller!”
Meanwhile, Danielle Bellini, longtime traffic reporter at Channel 2, signed off at the end of the WESH’s 6 a.m. broadcast. Her replacement, Kimberly Williams, started with the 7 a.m. WESH 2 News on CW18.
And, from a tipster but not confirmed, longtime feature reporter Candice Coleman will be leaving Local 6. She’s been with the station since 2001, and I’ve always found her “Out There” reports to be a hoot.
