"If you go to the Pittsford Wegmans, you’ll notice a chance."

It's bad enough the reporting is usually lackluster.
It's freakin pitiful they can't be bothered to proofread the damn thing.

It's endemic of news in Rochester. We don't have a single source of high quality news reporting in the city. Everybody does touchy, freely stuff targeted at a 90 year old in assisted living. Stuff pulled from YouTube. Kittens chasing a flashlight beam. Cupcakes and dancing stuff.

Then they report on the low life events, interviewing moron neighbors that forgot to put their teeth in. "He was a great guy, how many did he rape?"

Big cities cover politics, finance.... things that will impact the normal family. The only political news we get here is when Ms Warren prattles on and on -- and no one cuts her off to ask tough questions.

One last thing... will someone in management tell Kilbury that he is not funny, and not endearing. He comes off as a hick, which is difficult to do based on the competition. He makes Don Alhardt look good, something that is not easy to do.

Did their top anchor candidates decline the station's offers, and they said what the heck, we're desperate? Kilbury was a bad hire, and makes the news tedious. Lomax was already doing a good job at that.

He is a lot better than those old bafoons on 13. I think he is doing a great job. Those on 13 are not funny and do not smile or laugh.

I am in complete agreement with you that 13 is the worst news channel in Rochester. Hands down, no competition.

My point was that Kilbury tries too hard. He comes across my screen as stressed in his presentation, and attempting, without success, to fit in. Of course, my TV was made in Korea, so it could be a translation issue.

When I am in Boston, Chicago, San Francisco or Dallas local news is interesting, and full if information. All we get here is murders, arsons, home invasions and mindless stuff about what a second grade class did to solve global warming. The weather peoplestand outside to prove it is snowing. It's news for the terminally stupid (or at least they must think we are).
youll never get it

"If it bleeds, it leeds"......I'm all good with the crime and violence. They only have 22 minutes to get it all in. But Ch. 10 has a second half hour to get "real" news in......I'm pretty sure Killgore is just there till they find a legit anchor. The other guy bailed on them, he sucked too.
What homegrown reporter could fill that spot???

Don Alhart just got back from his annual 2 week vacation in Aruba. He should just stay there.
He really looks lost...I like when they catch him with his glasses on.

That said..Ch 10 blows.

This is not a big city that can pay millions for a news anchor. This is a shit town with small companies, lots of minorities and a city with a stupid Mayor. That said we are lucky to have any quality news anchors. As it is Don, Ginny and Doug suck. Fox news is now off my watch list now that TV8 is gone. I finds myself watching TV8 more and TV10 more.

TV13 reported on a water skiing squirrel and is always at the nursing homes reporting birthdays.
