Your mom's favorite local entertainment reporter is leaving for L.A.
After more than ten years sitting behind the desk of WSVN's Deco Drive, Louis Aguirre is heading to Los Angeles as the new co-anchor of Entertainment Tonight's sister show The Insider.
Aguirre will replace Kevin Frazier, who himself is headed to the main desk of Entertainment Tonight.
Aguirre has been at WSVN since 2003, and before that had stints as a correspondent on Extra and A Current Affair.
Exciting day. Thank you for all the love. I am overwhelmed and feeling very blessed. You guys are the best. I love you South Florida!

But who will deliver Deco Drive's horribly scripted puns now? Who will engage in banter with Lynn Martinez? Who will make awkward non-viral videos like "Soup Girl?"
WSVN has not yet answered that yet.
