Why would they cancel the sports segments?
Although at times Greg only had time for a single story.

They spend 30% of the local airtime REPEATING a national story that was covered by the network news or good morning america. Why waste time during the local news show repeating a taped segment about a two headed cat in New Jersey or rehased Washington politics? Why? Because the programers at BBJ are LAZY and too damn cheap to actually pay a sports staff or journalists. They actually did a segment this week about a robbery that happened in Jackson MS. MISSISSIPPI!!!! No local connection at all. The talking head guy just read off the story from the telepromter with a puzzled look on his face all because some college intern serving as news director pulled "Jackson" news off the internet and was too stupid to realize it was from Jackson freakin MISSISSIPPI!

The WBBJ newscast has become a comedy show. I watch it only for laughs. It is so amateurish it is pitiful.

WBBJ is a joke!! It's slightly embarrassing when family members from out if state are here and want to watch our local news!!

The Talking Heads know what they are dealing with.You'd think they would go into work early & review what they report, & save themselves some embarrassment.

Cutting sports on WBBJ was ill-advised, and they did it during the high school basketball tournaments! No problem, at least they still do sports on WPSD!

Really, what they need is more competition. With them being the only affiliated station in Jackson, it really allows them to slack a bit. Why was a station in Nashville doing such a huge, 2 part story on Holly Bobo? Because wbbj has no idea how to dig up a good local story. You're right when you say it's amateur hour over there. I have a buddy that works there, just starting out. He doesn't want to be there too long. The fact they got the rights for the local cbs feed, is even more pathetic. Why not an NBC or fox station in town? If Paduccah can get decent local news, why the hell can't Jackson?

Those holly bobo stories were debunked as made up stuff and not well investigated stories. The locals just didn't fall for the mess.

Nice try. But the TBI has gotten a lot of criticism of their critical words for the private investigators. The point is, there's a story there, that was missed. Please, how do you know they're debunked. You believe everything your government tells you, don't you drone? Do some of your own research instead of blindly believing the "well respected" lol TBI
