“Craig has family in Tampa,” WFTV general manager Shawn Bartelt told the Orlando Sentinel. “His old station, WTVT, offered him a job to come back. It was a family motivated decision.”
Patrick’s last day with WFTV was Friday. He will be replaced on “Central Florida Spotlight,” the station’s weekly political affairs program, by morning anchor Greg Warmoth, who will fill in until a permanent replacement is named.
