With all the big pro football games going on today, why does the WBBJ Sports people insist on running a goofy story about sports gifts and nothing on the football games

the same reason they repeat news stories for 2 or 3 days without any updates on the original story they did - they are a small town operation in a decent sized city - Jackson deserves better than what they put out - no wonder they have such a turnover in people

Horrible news station, I know people who work there and they'd rather die honestly. They just got "New" equipment in too. The "new" equipment is from the 80's. The company won't buy updated equipment, the anchors are a bunch of self absorbed twa*s, especially that frozen ice princess Kelly.

I went out there once to get Gary Pickens to autograph me a picture. Mickey Godwin was holding rabbit ears in the parking lot and she told me they were busy. To come back later.

I cannot remember WBBJ ever having had a good sports reporter. Remember Jack Church? Buddy Pearson? Steve Heman(spelling) was pretty decent.
This guy they have now still acts as if it's his first day of broadcasting.

Jackson deserves better? You seem extremely proud of Jackson, VOLDOG. Why not JACKSONdog? Or GENERALDog? And all there is to talk about in Jackson is crime-- theft, murder, kidnappings, etc. So... Forgive this LOCAL news station and its reporters for not talking about whatever you find so interesting, because unless someone else gets shot, all they can do is deliver more details as they become available. If you think Jackson "DESERVES" better, tell Jacksonians to ACT BETTER.
Oh yeah

Still doesn't change the fact that my 3 year old nephew could run a better station. Also Mr.Pickens, what map are you looking at exactly?
Oh yeah

His point wasn't the content they show, it was how horrible everyone is at their jobs. Kelly has been on her last strike for a while now. Left WBBJ once and was fired for being a huge cun*. Then came back and they told her if she does her bitch thing one more time she's gone for good.

Does WBBJ not do market research? The second most popular thing on local television news is sports -- after weather of course -- yet BBJ gives sports almost no coverage. One story most of the time and two at the most. No wonder people don't watch it. A big fat joke

Oh yeah

I change to another station as soon as I see the whole show come on. I'd rather not know what's going on in Jackson than have to hear it from them.
bright idea
