Where are they now?

(I meant to post this yesterday, but my flaky Internet connection decided otherwise.)

Today, we feature former WBRE investigative reporter Aaron Diamant.

Diamant has the distinction of being the last person at WBRE who primarily stuck to the investigative beat. Before showing up in Wilkes-Barre in 2001, he did stints in Philadelphia, Missouri, and Israel. And he's the only reporter I know with a degree in archaeology.

What a perfect degree for someone whose job involves digging up dirt!

*golf swing*

Anyway, once his two years were up, Diamant headed down south. With that, WBRE ended its investigative beat.

Where is he now? Diamant is an investigative reporter for WMC-TV in Memphis, Tennessee.

Aaron was and is a good guy. Problem was, and maybe still is, is that he was mis~cast in that roll. He wasn't PY, and he wasn't AM. And let me tell you, there just isn't that much digging you can do in the market. If you want to keep an I-team busy, you need to be working in bigger cities.

And when you look back on his time there, he was certainly promoted on air. But he only told stories.... what.... two or three times a week? And how many of those were handed to him by another reporter?

And from what I have been told. He had one foot out the door six months after he got there. Maybe that makes him smart. Good luck to you Aaron.

Aaron was barely on the air once a week. I was at WBRE during his entire tenure there. They promoted him alot, but nobody knew who he was. He wasn't on the air as much as people think. He barely did his own "investigating."
