The toilet paper story was very childish the way way both Don & Jenel acted. Growup. Look for another job that finds the both of you funny. Morning newscasters you are not.
Don has not changed since he came from WUTR, he was awful there as well. Could not pronounce words. You would think over the years he would improve.

He should go back to WUTR. Then y'all would leave him alone.

You are so right. you would think she would know better. Especially in todays world with all the things going on. Maybe someone should read the news to her. Not Don because he would have trouble with the words and she would not understand what he was talking about. Just like when the two of them report a story, half the time you don't know what they are talking about. But if he started out saying to her " Listen to this" she might get it .

It is all the fudge he got packed with. It prevents proper pronunciation.

All you people sound like the life of the party. Lighten up. You make this sound like this is the worst thing going on in your lives. It's a newscast for God sakes! There are a lot more terrible things going on out there. Just watch the news and you'll find out(oops). I'm sorry, our news annoys you!!

Local news is no longer the profit maker it used to be before the internet. Stations are not making the advertising dollars they grew accustomed to and are putting less effort into local news production. Stations like WKTV and WUTR, as well as Syracuse's WSTM/WTVH are investing minimal resources towards local news production. They don't pay enough to attract the most qualified talent. They are content with putting anyone who looks good in front of a camera, with their speaking and communication skills being secondary. Its not going to get any better. It is not only newspapers that are fading from our lives, but local television news is right behind them.

Maybe if Don & Jenel would stop their giggling and ghetto slang we could understand what is going on in the news.
