I also forgot, the only reason why they fired Vince is because he "wasn't a true weatherman". I honestly didn't care, before Vince was fired (and after), I would always be chanting, "We want Vince, We want Vince!" Vince was by far the world's best weather person, and I had always looked forward to his weather forecasts, he did the weather FIRST, then "his jokes SECOND, that's what I miss, I got what I needed first, then what I wanted, Vince, the best weathercaster in the world. We now have Pointless Accuweather (or as they call it, "All-Points" Accuweather), which takes 5 minutes to get a 5-day through. Also, now we have the biggest disgrace to the broadcasting industry (Kerry Shahen), who can't report the news, and Dave Kuharchik, some idiot who also takes 5 minutes to give you a 5-day. The only weather from WBRE that I like is the weekend weather, because it isn't "Pennsylvania Morning" or "Pointless Accuweather", it is just "Weather". Did you notice that all of these stupid weather broadcasts that have no point?

Vince was a cocky and arragant drunkard. He didn't care a crap for anyone or anything in NEPA. Meet him in person - he's drunk 24/7.

Degrees do NOT mean quality.

Look at snedeker. He's a "certified" meteorologist, but he's a juvenile ass-clown, embarassing the area every day he's on the air.
Being funny is one thing, but being a pathetic, unfunny, horse's-ass, is quite another (degrees notwithstanding).
Oh, I forgot, he bike rides for charity, and gets more praise and accolades than the frickin soldiers from this area who are putting their goddam lives on the line for this country. Snedeker rides his bike for a few days, and the dopes act like he's Jesus riding triumphantly into Jerusalem on a donkey.

The dopes who line the streets to cheer on this guy, are probably the same dopes who waited in the rain for hours, to get the autographs of the channel 16 on-air personalities at their open house.
Probably the same type of dopes who write about the price of gas being the "current regime's fault".

I can't make up stuff this stupid.

Josh has the personality of a floor board. When he's in public he's arrogant and lacks respect for others. Not to mention his stalking behavior in public.
By the way, he's not a celebrity though he thinks he is when he walks in a restaurant.

You fire a great straight Vince Sweeney and hire a gay dude Hodell who is as bad as Ryan Lecky. What is your problem. I refuse to watch any local news because of the idiots you hire and the boring news you repeatedly report day after day. Get a grip and learn from the big city people. All you have to report are local accidents, fires, shootings, and robberies. BORING. And you do this day after day. With the political situation you are extremely liberal and support a CROOK like Clinton. Give me a break. You think she can protect this country? Yes, the same way she protected our diplomat and Navy Seals in Benghazi. Get your heads out of your assholes and wake up.
