The morning news cast and 12 is a debotchery! I can't believe a news station actually hired these two. The rest of their cast of characters are terrible but those 3 in the morning are a joke? I studied broadcast and communications in college and our newscast from a small private school looked more professional.

The only other job Shipman has held was the cart boy at the N. Utica Price Chopper. He gathers all the shopping carts and brings them inside. He did that job for 2 years til he seriosly damaged a $60,000 mercedes. He actually has a GPS tracker in his car to get home from work everyday.

Watching WKTV news makes me feel like I'm going to puke. I won't waste time watching it. I'm sure Don Shipman is a great person, but he is a lousy newscaster. Jill Realle has never looked confident in front of a camera, and mumbles to the point where it is not possible to understand what she said. These two are the worst of the bunch, but the others are almost as unwatchable. Utica is a hillbilly town, and this newscast is geared to the low standards of this town.

PLEASE BRING BACK SANDY. At least the only time he messed up the broadcast was at x-mas time when he was fried on camera from being at the x-mas party !

I can hear her fine and I also can understand her. Maybe you need to admit you have a hearing problem and take care of it.

She has a mouth full of marbles. Turn up your Miracle Ear and you will hear how she chews every word. Just awful, or maybe you are just used to the Utica accent.

One who felt like this. Jill R. does mumble - and worst yet she is absolutely nasal - I can't listen to it - I have to turn the channel. Then Ms. Boston - at first I thought Thank God a real anchor - OMG was I WRONG!!!! At first she was so confident and light. Now, she constantly second guesses herself - pronounces words multiple times in an attempt to get the pronounciation correct. It is horrible. She does sound ghetto - that is that - the truth.

I suspect that those who felt as you do were smart enough to stop watching. Why don't you? Wouldn't that solve your problem? Why subject yourself to something you don't enjoy? Get out your Atari game or something.

I watch for the first 11 minutes until they do a recap of the day's top stories.
Subtract the commercials and all important weather and you have about 3 minutes of actual news. Unbelievable.

Kristan copeland needs to learn how to dress more professional and have her clothes tailored. She needs a new hairstyle too...very disheveled for a tv personality.
