If you watch the locally-produced morning show, The Daily Buzz, you may have not recognized the show this week.

More precisely, you may not have recognized the four new hosts.

To kick off The Daily Buzz’s 11th season, on August 6, the show received a new set and four new hosts.

Charles Divins (an actor who spent five years on the soap “Passions”), Lisa Spooner (a morning anchor from Fort Meyers), Lance Smith (former host of CMT’s “Top 20 Countdown”), and Jessica Reyes (a Toyota of Orlando spokesperson) are the new faces gracing The Daily Buzz.

They replace former hosts Andrea Jackson, Andy Campbell, and Mitch English (who left a month earlier).

The show continues to shoot at Full Sail University in Winter Park, but with a new set. Originally, the quartet were seated facing each other at a table, but that has been tweaked per viewer response to the forward facing-the-camera style of delivering the news.

In Orlando, the nationally syndicated show airs from 6am-7am weekday mornings on WRDQ-Channel 27.

The Daily Buzz, Season 11 Hosts: Lance Smith, Lisa Spooner, Charles Divins, and Jessica Reyes

    What is the name of theme song and the artist?

  2. Angi says:

    Why? Where did they go. They were what made us watch the show.

    • Michelle Snow says:

      I guess some got other job offers and some will be popping up from time to time as additional reporters. Nothing for sure has been said, to my knowledge.

    I have looked high and low online to find an official “goodbye” this is our last day, we’ve enjoyed our time here, best of luck in the future, something, anything!!! The new cast of course has admitted the obvious that they are new and the previous ones are gone, we the viewing audience are not morons, we know that!! However, the fact that no one there will say anything more about it, seems to be they are ashamed of their actons and only want to move on. I feel like that can’t be done untill they are willing to say whatever happened, no matter how uncomfortable. Because untill then, watching the show go on without any explanations is uncomfortable and cant trust the new hosts when they cant be honest about the jobs they’ve taken…….all seems really shady and rather a low blow to the audience the previous hosts built. Shame on you Dailly Buzz.

    • Michelle Snow says:

      I was surprised there was no announcement or letting them say goodbye and maybe have a montage retrospective. I’ll give the new cast a chance, but so far they’re not growing on me.

    The new hosts are awful! Disappointing hey are acting like bad copy cats .

    • mary says:

      I agree with Lipizzo ! The show is horrible. The host Charles Divins looks good, but thats it! Seriously, he should just sit there and not say anything, people will not realize he can’t read! SMH!

  5. Cari says:

    WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TO THE ORIGINAL CAST… MY FAVORITES ARE GONE!!!!
    AND YOU MADE THE NEW CAST TRY TO LOOK LIKE THE OLD CAST ESPECIALLY THE BLOND ANCHOR IN THE MIDDLE….

    TOO BAD BUT THE SHOW SUCKS NOW!!! WHO’S THE IDIOT THAT MADE THAT DECISION…THEY SHOULD BE FIRED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Lori says:

    Imagine my surprise this morning, after working a different work schedule for a month, to discover this abomination of new hosts. Wtf. This stinks on ice.

  7. Sandy says:

    The show is awful. Who are these idiots and where did you get them? Too bad I used to watch it all the time. You didn’t even warn us about the change I just turned to that channel one morning and the rapsters were three.

  8. Goodbye says:

    NO LONGER A FAN AFTER 6 YEARS. whoever the untalented, ignorant, morons are that made this decision should be fired. No talent plastic hosts…are you kidding?!!! The previous hosts are what MADE THE SHOW. Go hire then back, pay them what they want, and offer them long term contracts. Maybe you’ll get lucky and maybe you’ll get your audience back….if it’s not too late. Get a life idiots and pick a new career because your decision making skills SUCK!

  9. Raquel says:

    I miss Mitch so much!! This show sucks now! I used to start my days smiling and laughing because of the old casts antics. It was great. This show has gone completely lame.
