Is it just me or is WJHL about the sorriest excuse for a news cast you ever witnessed? They devote the majority of their 13 minute allotment of "news" to silly human interest stories.

If you take it on balance with the rest of his newscast, I think its acceptable. WJHL news just regurgitates human interests stories and focuses on Jim Bailey/Sara Diamond laughing at each other. Same goes for the rest of the channel.

We're better off getting our news from the internet.

Well, I am certain that WCYB does a much better job with real news. They will have at least 5 minutes more actual news than WJHL. The early morning news on Chan 11 with Josh Smith is actually pretty good,it it the evening news I get flustered with. Jim (We first told you) Bailey is a joke, his partner, Sara is a carbon copy.
Johnny Woods is a great man just spends a bit too much time on other things.

I'm so glad that I'm not the only one that thinks that Jim Bailey is a disgrace and downright unwatchable. The guy has an ego the size of a Mack truck and his sidekick Sara is much the same. The only thing that Sara has going for her is when she does on the scene reporting, which she does a decent job.

Jim Bailey just needs to go away and the whole WJHL newscast needs to have an overhaul. Mark Reynolds is another one that needs to go away. The morning edition on WJHL is great, but the rest of their news programming is a joke.

Are you saying that Josh and Rob act a little queer? Because if so, I agree. For two guys that are married and have kids, these two must be stroking each other under the news desk because they are absoloutely giddy to be around each other. Like two middle school lovers.

For years, WJHL has reported on news in Kingsport and Bristol far more than what happens in Johnson City. It's getting so I have to watch WCYB to see what happens in Johnson City!

"THE BRISTOL HERALD COURIER IS REPORTING"

I get so freaking tired of hearing that prefaced before each sentence that comes out of Jim Baileys or Sara Diamonds mouth.

The best thing on WJHL news is Kenny Hawkins with sports. He also has a radio sports show I listen to, but the other news casters are sorry, especially that giggle box Sarah Diamond. Can you get thru one broadcast without laughing..."a car bomb kills three...hehehe", "it's gonna snow....Ahehehe", "the bucs lost another game....AHEHEHE......" PLEASE!!!!!!

I suppose the ones who were too smart for their own good, in JC, died along time ago. Too bad for us, the dead don't speak.

Like on this thread, we are all now just stuck clicking our heels together and crying for home.

Didn't think Rob was married. I think he's cute, and I'm not a guy.

Clearly, some genius thought it would be a good idea to get the Bristol paper as an exclusive source. Of course, the Johnson City Press is a laughingstock and probably the worst paper around, so I'm not sure that's an upgrade.

This area sucks for news coverage. It's all censored and filtered news from the good ole' boy network that operates around here.
