I don't care why they let Jim go, I liked him and I like Nate too. I always watch WTRF because they tell the local news. What do I care what happens in Pgh. or Steubenville? I can appreciate them giving young college grads a chance, we all have to start somewhere. Some are really good, some needs some guidence, but I give them a chance. How can anyone say Jim had problems without proof. If you are his wife or mother you may know something that is true, but don't pass along what you don't know is true!!!!

It's quite obvious that Jim was a hologram and that his root file became corrupted making his image unuseable.
Happened not too long ago with Ed Bradley. That was a shame. I really liked both those characters.

Wow! I had no idea that this stuff was going on. I just bitched to Comcast for umpteenth time to fix their sleazy station. Voice goes out, in the middle of dialog with no commercial coming up, they just throw a local advertisement in IN THE MIDDLE OF SOMEONE'S DIALOG!!! Amazing right? But I see other folks have the same issues but trust me, Comcast needs to wake up with this station. But, they don't care either. They just want the money and to hell with us, the people who pay their salaries!
Unbelievable! And unacceptable as well. As far as Jim Forbes goes, I hope he does well and rises above the low life's that let him go! Do well mr. Forbes and if you need help, get it! We miss you!

Jim Forbes was a drunk who repeatedly drove drunk around West Virginia and Ohio. Now he works for Congressman David McKinley.

I speak with a person that stays in touch with Mr. Forbes. He's doing very well in Washington, D.C., where his talents are no doubt more appreciated than at his previous place of employment.

By the way, I wish Mr. Steve Mazure were still doing the news. THAT is a true professional.

We advertised on WTRF , kick ass commercial I feel. Out of running the ad for 1 year and paying multi thousands of $'sss we received approximately 2 phonecalls ! We Ran the ad during the Letterman show.

I'm not so sure this has a lot to do with WTRF , but TV in general. We have an 800 #, every call that comes in to it, displays the persons name and number, so we know exactly what type of results we were getting, unlike many who have no idea. They kept telling us it was because we had no "brick n mortar" storefront. That has nothing to do with it, we offered a service, we advertised, and two phonecalls for 2 phonecalls approximately. Which resulted in ZERO sales / transactions. To top it off, we had to haggle with the station so the commercial would confirm to their policies for over a month approximately. The same ad we ran in one newspaper for about $50 and got over 100 callers in about 2 days. I think if advertisers knew the actual response TV gets, they would not spend a dime advertising on TV. I'm not trying to bash WTRF ADVERTISING , Im just stating this to let others know how ineffective advertising on TV can be. And if you have a storefront, you can't measure the results. Well I measured the results, and... I will never ever advertise on any TV station again. The results suck. IM sure radio is the same way. I know we tried calling a radio station for advertising and when pressing the guy for how much it was per spot, he hung up on us, he just wanted our $ to do whatever he wanted to do with it. He kept saying give me $ and I'll make sure we spend it properly...... RIGHT! HAHA Are all tv and radio stations like this? I don't know. Craigslist gives you results, TV does not! LOL
