Knight Rider... you do realize more than half the BKO employees are 22-years-old, right? If they neglected to mention Gaines had lost some prior election, it's certainly not a conspiracy to ensure he gets elected as sheriff again. It's simply not that deep. His election as VP of KACO probably got some quick mention with no further explanation because, frankly, the story's just not that interesting.

And just because Channel 5 did a story one time about a kid getting tazered at a Subway... does not mean Nashville TV covers more Bowling Green news than WBKO. The Nashville stations will drive up to cover you guys once every two or three months. You're barely in their viewing area... and your viewership doesn't matter enough to their ratings for them to come up often. So. Let's put that idea out of our heads.

Look. Bowling Green is a small market. The station is actually rather good given the size of the city. Have you ever taken note how many of their alumni have ended up in Nashville, Lexington, Louisville... or someplace even better? The place must be doing something right.

And... furthermore... a large chunk of the employees left at the station are good enough to get a job in a larger city. I imagine a lot of them haven't... because they enjoy living in Bowling Green. It's just a shame the local yahoos on here have to be so incessantly nasty to them...

WBKO is the biggest joke when it comes to the news that I have ever witnessed. Last night they reported that sheriff Gaines was elected as second VP of KACO ( Ky Association of county officials) right. The thing that did not get reported is the fact that Gaines was unopposed for this meaningless office and if they had really done their job WBKO failed to report that a few months ago that sheriff Gaines ran for president of KACO and was defeated. Oh my god, did I say defeated, I did. Yes, the infamous peanut for brains gaines was defeated in an election, But being the crappy news station that WBKO is known to be they did not report this negative thing about Gaines, wonder why? Could it have been that it was just before the last election and that Gaines loosing at the KACO election might have had a effect on his run for sheriff?, maybe huh!!
well do you not have an off button on your remote? get real if you don't like it tell your mommy to turn it off fool!!!

How many employees does BKO have left?? Isn't the news dept just: Gene, Laura, Lacey, and Lauren???

Lauren has been there for 10 years and it took her forever to land the top spot.

Laura seems to like this area, I still can't figure out why she hasn't moved up.

Lacey is really good and I can see her in Louisville or Nashville within the next year.

I think there employees suck for the most part and the reason they can't get any decent replacements is because the station is so pathetic.

Oh boy, now I'm impressed!! WBKO is now invading my right to privacy. We have that right while we are in our vehicles. And that goes for the camera's located all over town!! They are unconstitutional when used for any purpose other than traffic congestion problems!!

Gene, Laura, Lacey and Lauren are the anchors. They have reporters, producers and others working in their news department.

I saw Laura Rogers in the grocery store and she didn't speak to me. I again said, it looks like it's going to rain and she just glared at me.

Got that stupid look huh. The word stupid would describe her to a tee. All WBKO news people think their sh-t does not stink. News flash WBKO, it does stink and so does your pathectic TV station, which I refused to watch any longer.

Lived here all of my life and I have seen first hand that anytime that crook Gaines barks WBKO comes running. Gene Burke and Gaines are big buddies thy say. peanut Gaines has always threatened and intimidated people at every election. Some say that they are afraid of this pice of trash Gaines, but I am not I assure you!! Have known that idiot for years and he ahs always been a crook!! One day gaines he will go down and that day is coming!!

What killed me was WBKO never even covered the story where the WKU boy tried to kill the Subway employee during Homecoming and WTVF did a 5 minute piece on it. WBKO would rather do a story on Laura Rogers makeup. Maybe WBKO could do a story on how to get a skanky tattoo and Laura could volunteer to match her nasty husbands.
i lived a mile away from laura and attended the same elementary an high school and i can tell you shes as stuck up as the news station. so shes should feel right at home. i know the story on old weather man {jeff noble} he stopped at the liquire store next 2 wbko got a few shots in and decideed to go to work Chris Allen smelled it and fired him on the spot.

Don't diss WBKO. They've been doing a great job for a long time in this area. Chris Allen is my favorite personality at their station.

Obviously he was good at his trade, because he's working in a Major Metropolitan Market, he did a fine job and he will be missed. I am proud to call Ryan my friend and I'm happy for him that he was able to move on to bigger and better things...

WBKO does not run anything that may be even slightly controversal. That comes up, they head for the hills.Maybe Chris Allen serves as News Director as well. He sees himself as a comedian and
celebrity. I seldom watch because of this phoney. I have no problem with the others, but everytime I see him making a fool of himself, I get a rash.
