Lauren LaPonzina: “I got the classic bait-and-switch! (Special to Gossip Extra)

It’s just, she says, that she got the old bait’n’switch from the center’s bosses.

They lured her away from the anchor desk at the area’s most successful television station for a cushy 9-to-5 job to create positive buzz about the hospital.

Then piled on a second role at no extra pay weeks after she started!

“I resigned,” LaPonzina told Gossip Extra today. “I wrote them a brief resignation letter.

“They created a position of public relations director for me,” LaPonzina said. “Things were going well for the first few weeks then the marketing director resigned. And all of the sudden, they wanted me to take over the marketing department as well.

“That’s two full time jobs. I quit television to scale back, not to end up doing two full-time jobs.”

In essence, LaPonzina said, the newest proposal from the medical center wasn’t one that could be negotiated.

“I still don’t regret leaving television,” LaPonzina said. “It was more for a lifestyle change. I’d like to start a family.”
