When WKMG’s Lauren Rowe announced her retirement, the Central Florida media market lost more than a pretty face. Gone will be a sense of insight rare today. Lauren did more than report. She probed – not in the aggressive, combative mode of so many, but rather from an educated sense of interest in her topic.
Her contribution to public service programming in this city is unmatched. She always did her homework. Lauren Rowe got more thoughtful information on the table during her Flashpoint programs than any other on local television. In so many ways, she brought network quality to the screen.
She knew how to be tough when needed. She projected a professional image. And she knew how to be human, to let her guard down and to take a genuine interest in what others were talking about. She’ll be missed.
