fn the news: iouis Aguirre returns to Miami, the city that launched his long-standing RQ SFUHHQ FDUHHU
BELOVED TELEVISION PERSONALITY LOUIS AGUIRRE RETURNS TO THE MAGIC CITY AND YOUR TV SCREEN THIS MONTH AFTER A STINT IN TINSELTOWN.
“I just can’t wait to walk my dog on the beach,” says a beaming Louis Aguirre when asked about his return to miami. “That’s what I’ve missed the most.”
For three years, the former Deco Drive host’s absence has been strongly felt, since he jetted off to LA to join The Insider. After a successful stint cohosting the national entertainment-news show, Aguirre is coming back to miami, now at WPLG Channel 10—where he worked when he was 24 years old—as an anchor and reporter. “This is a quintessential full-circle moment,” he says. “I’m not just coming home to miami; I’m coming home to the place that gave birth to my career.”
The new position also marks Aguirre’s return to hard news, which he’s very excited about. “I’ve had so much fun covering entertainment for the past 18 years, but I’ve noticed my personal focus has shifted,” he says. “The lightbulb moment came when I was in miami when Fidel Castro died. I went to Little Havana and saw my fellow journalists out there, and I thought, Wow, I wish I could tell that story.”
And now he can. Starting this month, Aguirre is anchoring the 4:30 and 5:30 pm newscasts and reporting at 11 pm. “These are the stories I feel most passionate about,” he says. “I’ve always had this incredibly strong faith that life will push you in the right direction. I’m looking forward to this next chapter.”
After covering entertainment news for 18 years, Louis Aguirre (aƛoưe) feels ready to return to Miami to tell the hard-hitting stories.
