I tried giving it a chance. Channel 8's staff built this news segment, and 13 comes waltzing in with their twist. Something is lacking with their talent. 13 news might be rated #1 in the market, but they don't have the best news. They dont belong on FOX. Ginny Ryan and Glenn Johnson are stale and stagnant. Kevin Doran and Scott Hetsko kept things fresh. They entertained me. This was a big mistake. I understand business and contracts, but I will not watch the 10 o'clock news anymore. I'm sure many viewers feel this way.

Bring back TV8 for FOX. Stale and Stagnant is correct. Not the same. TV13 is dry.

I knew I couldn't be the only one who felt this way.

Ch 13 is news for nursing homes and the elderly. Don Alhardt has a sing song presentation and is not funny or amusing when he tries to be. It is a chore to watch. I have switched to Ch 8 also.

Ch 8 gives you more mugshots - something that is very important to some of this forum's posters.

Agreed. WROC did it better. 13 WHAMis for old people.

Rachel Barnhart is on channel 8.

'Nuff said.

I agree with the original poster. I am in my mid 50s and tv 13 has gotten stale even though they rule the ratings among local news broadcasts due to the older segment.

I gave it a try at 10pm and I am a big fan of Ginny Ryan I just like her style but the broadcast is stale and I will not watch it

Kevin Doran always seems nervous. He can't read without his voice quivering..like he has stage frght.
Can't watch Stacy Pengsen..she messes up more then Norma Holland.
John Kutcko just shills for his Twitter page and has that weird cheshire cat smile.
I like Hetsko better as a personality..but Glenn Johnson has a better weather broadcast format.

I will take Scott and Kevin any day of the week. 13 is old. It's like a stagnate pond water that smells cause nothing has moved in years. Doug, Ginny and Glen have never advanced,. They never smile and never joke. They are BLAH. They are like eating pancakes at I hop with no syrup. TV8 did it better. I do not watch much anymore.

Are you tuning in to the news or are you tuning in to hear jokes and be entertained?

After a long day I do not want to look at someones pit bull face with no emotion. I need a laugh or two and the news as well. Life is too serious. I do need to look at Don, Doug, Genny or Glen's serious faces. No jokes on TV13. You will hear no bus horn honking with Glen. TV13 newscast is just getting old and stale.

10 has gone HD..thats why I've tuned in to them again in spots. The jury is out. Stale weather team...Amanda Ciavarri is pretty hot..Lia Lando is solid as well. Even the men don' annoy me. I don't watch their sports bros.

Don Alhardt always has something cutesy to say. Can't stand him. How's his Mom doing?

I'm glad to see Rachel Barnhart on one less channel.

I know she has to have less hours over the loss of Fox.

Kevin Doran has already had a heart attack and Scott Hetsko had to get a pacemaker installed...meanwhile Don Alhart is out running marathons and shoveling piles of snow. despite his hump back. Don Alhart's mom may have dies, but @ Ch 8 dudes already half in the grave.
