It’s finally over.  After an unnecessarily long election process, a field of qualified candidates was slowly narrowed down, and now we have a winner.  I am of course speaking of the search for the new host of Mahalo Daily.

So who’s the lucky girl?  Leah D’Emilio.  A former TV reporter from Toledo, Leah’s got skills, holds her Masters in Communications from Bowling Green State University, and she’s purty too.  She narrowly beat out fellow finalist Andrea Rene in the final challenge of making a viral video.  Andrea did well for herself too, scoring the job of part-time correspondent.

In late April, when VLOGIdol was just beginning, I wrote a post in which I acknowledged the credentials of the contestants but bemoaned the fact that none of them were sufficiently Belmontesque.  Well, while that hasn’t changed, the judges were able to find someone who is able to hop in the driver’s seat and make Mahalo Daily her own.

Congratulations on the new gig, Leah.  Welcome to the web!
