In September 2017, WPLG-Local 10 welcomed Emmy-award winning journalist Louis Aguirre back home to South Florida and the Local 10 family. Louis co-anchors the station’s weekday 3:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. newscasts. He also reports for the 11 p.m. newscast.
Beginning his television career at Telemundo in 1989, as a Spanish-language reporter, Louis eventually made the jump to Local 10 as a reporter and then weekend anchor. Louis worked at Local 10 from 1989 to 1992, during which time he became one of the few American journalists allowed into Cuba to cover the 30th anniversary of the Cuban missile crisis.
Louis would later spend 14 years at WSVN in Miami before relocating to Los Angeles in 2014 to anchor the nationally syndicated program “The Insider.”
Louis has worked for “Extra,” served as lead correspondent for “A Current Affair” and as co-host of “Fox and Friends.”
In addition, Louis has guest starred on “Sex and the City,” “JAG,” “Burn Notice,” “Guiding Light” and “All My Children.”
A native of Miami, Louis is a graduate of the University of Miami and the Universite de Paris at La Sorbonne.
On his spare time, Louis enjoys swimming at the beach, the delicious South Florida cuisine and vibrant art scene.
