I love all of the channel 4 news cast but what bothers me about all of the stations is WHY do the weather people get so much air time? No one I know is that interested in the weather unless there is a storm brewing. Weather is the least interesting part of the news...they should get another segment like " ask the crime analyst" where he can answer some emails about crime safety and crime trends. Something useful and tone down the weather. Just my opinion and most of those I work with.

At least they can spell. If you don't like them change the channel. I think they are very good wouldn't watch any other news team!!!

Hey, remember PETER BURNS? Hahaha!!! I'm not kiddin'. We had a guy on 12 named Peter Burns.
I worked with a Peter Burns in Milwaukee at WISN 12 when he was an anchorman. Best way to physically describe him is his bright red, wavy hair. All he ever talked about was how much he loved San Francisco. No wonder he didn't exactly ingratiate himself to the Milwaukee audience. He played out his 3 year contract and management showed him the door.

Jacksonville has the worst all round news shows I have seen anywhere in over 60 years.
The stations all seem to have the same station manager. And, it seems they put their news shows together with each other.....exact same news stories at almost the exact same time with the commericals timed exactly the same.
same news stories, weather reports every 5 minutes saying the same thing over and over again....1 1/2 hours of exactly the same thing.....with 45 minutes of commericials......sometimes 8-10 commericals one right after another.
No need to get into the silly useless lame chit chat between the news people.....I'm sure everyone has already thrown up enough because of that crap.
Sports is an after thought with jax news shows.
But, Joy Purdy, Tim Deegan, The screaming black clown Hicken hired for sports on ch. 12.....and Hicken since he has been drinking so much are the worst of the worst.
I agree 100% I have lived in some of the biggest cities and smallest towns around the world and the Jacksonville news crews are among the worst I have ever seen. They repeat their stories for days some times like there is a lack of news, sports in Jax is a joke, they need to change the name to SPORT report since football is about all they talk about... even in the off season. You would think with the large scale population of military people from around the country in the cities of Jacksonville and Mayport they would have a much better sportscaster let people know what's going on with their favorite teams in other sports other than football high school football college football pro football 08 99 times out of 100 pro football they talk about the Jacksonville suck wad... I mean Jaguars. But no baseball, basketball, hockey, or any other sport unless its TPC Sawgrass and the tournament Players Championship.

I agree with JaxGirl. He turns my stomach. All of the stations have someone who shouldn't be doing the news. They all seem to be the rejects from the anchor pool. They either can not speak proper english or the put thier opinion in when they shouldn't. They cater to some types of people and can't wait to jump on the next bad story.Race Baiters. Bad Speakers. Pure Puke All...

D*mmnation reading all these TV-news/weather/sports reviews makes me wanna gag. Are the weather-vixens really that tacky and sports-jocks that stupid ?? Is it really that bad?
I have not owned a TV since 1977 and have got N/W/S from da-WWW since 1997. As for sporting events sports.bars have HUGE screens, decent food and lots of chatty cute gals .... and since Penn State usually chokes in crucial games I don't mind missing them.
For those who making all these comments. Get a life. I can't believe you waste all your little energy you have to put another people down. You know there's another things out there to talk about. Crime, homeless, helping cancer patients. How about more jobs for the city. The list goes on. You rather waste your time talking about other people. It's sad you waste all your energy in a negative way.

Good luck to those who rely on T.V. to learn of world events. It's the worst medium possible for news that does not lend itself to the visual.

There are so many bad local news people it's hard to choose...but overall I think that Channel 4 had the worst assortment: that creepy Adam Landau needs to be shown the Casey Black, oh my God, she needs to take that too-tight red satin blazer that she wears on the air 8-10 times per month and give it BACK to the Goodwill. Richard Nunn isn't all that bad but he needs to do the stupid weather and stop with the idiocy. I hear that WJXT recently purchased a new warehouse to hold Staci Spanos' ego. Bruce Hamilton? Why the hair dye, Botox, and veneer teeth? George Winterling needs to catch the community transit bus back to Cypress Village and stay there. Rebecca Bunny was a great choice as an eye-candy addition to the team, unless you need to know the I guess that she and the others can stay for now....

On to 12 & 25...Donna and Tim Deegan are a complete disgrace not only to WTLV/WJXX but also to humankind...others are too nondescript to warrant a mention.
I guess your life sucks. You have nothing good to about anyone. Are you better than them? I feel sorry for you. You CAN'T find happiness because you live in your dark world. Get a LIFE.

I don't watch Channel 4 in the morning because they waste too much time. I only have 15-20 minutes to get the news, weather and traffic before I leave for work. I usually watch Channel 6 because they don't try to entertain me. Just the facts please. I can't stand Chris Porter on Channel 12 sports. He thinks he is funny but he is not.

I like Alyssa Lang. She seems very genuine. It's also nice to she a beautiful woman waxing poetic on sports insightfully. She rocks the first coast.

Jenna Bourne is also a wonderful investigative reporter. Not too mention she is so beautiful as with most talking heads of the fairer sex.
