Mike Mason will join Fort Myers, Fla., Fox affiliate WFTX.
“WFTX made me an offer I just couldn’t refuse,” Mason told TVSpy. “That, along with the sunny skies offering 80 degree weather during winter months and the white sand beaches of Naples, Marco Island and Sanibel; how could I ask for anything more?”
“I am very excited to announce the return of Mike Mason to the Fox 4 reporting staff,” news director Eric Maze wrote in an email to staff. “Mike is a decorated investigative journalist who has earned a National Edward R. Murrow Award and several other prestigious honors over his nearly two decades in the TV business.”
Mason starts Sunday, May 1. He’s been working as a freelance reporter. Before that, he worked at WGCL in Atlanta, Ga., WFTS in Tampa, Fla., WLOS in Asheville, N.C., and both WBBH and WFTX in Fort Myers, Fla.
