Belich has been with WFTV since 1992 and has made a name for herself in central Florida with her aggressive coverage of the Anthony case over the last couple of years. As the much-publicized case drags on, WFTV wanted to makes sure that it locked up its star reporter.
“I don’t want her thinking about her contract when she’s covering the Casey Anthony trial,” Bob Jordan, WFTV’s news director, told the Orlando Sentinel.
The murder trial is set to begin in May.
“I am very happy. I love my job,” Belich said about the new contract.
