NEW: Julie Tremmel Out at WJAR 10
Friday, February 14, 2014
Tremmel’s bear video went viral across the US and was featured on HuffPost, ABCNews and GoLocal sites. The video raised questions even within the Channel 10 news organization when longstanding investigative reporter Jim Taricani called the bear video an embarrassment to the station in a post to Facebook.
Tremmel made news again when she started to perform on camera to demonstrate her own talents when doing a report on a NBC reality TV show visiting the market.
According to employees of the news department, the Tremmel performances proved too much. WJAR has been one of the most respected local affliates of any network station in the United States. It had been the training and launching pad for the careers of Meredith Vieira, Matt Lauer and many other top level network journalists.
Tremmel posted to her Facebook page on Wednesday night, “THANK YOU to the 100+ people who have inboxed me with your heartfelt support. You each give me so much hope.”
Repeated efforts to reach News Director Chris Lanni. The Tremmel episodes are just two of the latest hits to the station. Recently, political reporter Bill Rappeleye was caught on live mic during a taping of Political Notebook speculating about politicians' sexuality.
