Michael Shingleton leaving WBRZ for Tampa station




After more than a decade with WBRZ-TV, reporter Michael Shingleton is saying goodbye to the station today to take a new job with Tampa-St. Petersburg Fox affiliate WTVT-TV. Shingleton, a native of Baton Rouge and LSU graduate, is the son of well-known weatherman Pat Shingleton, who is WBRZ's chief forecaster. The younger Shingleton, whose last day with WBRZ is today, will begin his new job early next month. According to the WBRZ website, Shingleton joined the station in May 2002, but had been exposed to it and broadcast journalism much earlier in life through his father. "I've really known nothing else. From the time I was 12 years old, coming down here on Friday nights, standing behind the cameramen during the 10 p.m. newscast, I knew I wanted to do something in TV," he says on the station's website. —Staff report
