No he isn't. Barry and Jimmy were complaining that Kevin mentioned on the news that he was listening to a Detroit Radio Station. That hurt their feelings.

I remember Kevin from the days of being paired with Kiran Chetry. Didn't like him then and still don't like him. But I give him credit for staying for 12 years and not the usual 2 like everyone else.

Erie TV can hardly be considered a career destination. At best it's an entry level job market and I don't blame anyone for moving on.

He was a lot better than Hile Richmond, Ned McGrath, Shirley Ramsey and Vance McBride. But that was back in the '60s. WICU was #1 back then. The only reason why is because it was the only station that was UHF. All the others were VHF stations.

You've got it bass-ackwards. WICU is the only VHF station hence the number 12. JET 24, SEE 35 FOX 66 and QLN 54 all are UHF. In the old days, before cable some folks had to use a convertor box to get UHF, but you're too young to understand that technical stuff.

Putting bremner on the evenings would be the final nail on 12's coffin.
