WSMV Channel 4 News Reporter Darian Trotter was elated to receive the coveted “Favorite Local News Reporter” award for the second consecutive year in the 2005 readers Gay Favorites poll in “Out & About Newspaper”.
We caught up with Darian and asked for his comments on the recent win.
“I think it is great to be recognized, noticed, and appreciated for work I am doing for two years in a row,” he said. Trotter has more than that one reason to celebrate. WSMV recently signed Trotter to a new two-year contract, insuring that he’ll report on the news for Nashvillians for a while longer.
Trotter has received numerous other awards for his expert investigative reporting segments, and was nominated for an Emmy this year. His sharp, yet trendy dress style has attracted a niche following among the WSMV Channel 4 News audience.
“What I do has allowed different people to become interested in local news and build viewer ship,” he said when asked about his fashion.
