All are gone, but we have Don Dudley in the anchor chair so it can't be all bad.
Sure

Matthews abruptly resigned. The TV station isn't saying anything, but him and Don Dudley were at loggerheads. Dudley wanted him out and Dudley is in control up there and got his way. Things are going downhill with the station's news. Too bad. That started out great and it looked like WKTV was going to get some competition. Not looking so good now. Hated to see Matthews go. He carried the news. Maybe that's why Dudley wanted him out.

Jeff was on WIBX with Bill K this morning. He did not go into the reasons why he left, and had nothing but praise for the people of the Utica area.
Well

From Jeff's Facebook... "Here's a bottom line truth that cannot be escaped: When you see a slogan, just cause it's a slogan, doesn't make it true. It is simple advertising, because THEY have determined that this is what THEY think YOU need to hear, to "buy" their product...be it a car, a movie, whatever. So, when you hear a slogan like..., "It's all about you", and you see one and the same person front and center all the time every time arms folded in authority with a fake smile who talks over anyone and cuts anyone off from talking any time the person wants, and you never ever see them in the community, you have every right to question the slogan they want you to believe in, in their commercials. That's just me, because I hate commercials and slogans...so the above being hypothetical, of course."

Precisely. Dudley is a classic self centered narcissist who can't stand to see someone better than himself.

Dudley was awful covering the Boilermaker. They should have had someone who knows the Boilermaker up there to help him. Dudley was the anchor and in charge but was barely able to describe what was going on. This isn't a big city, but we deserve better than this. Back in the day there were some good anchors at WUTR, including Steve McMurray who defected to WKTV

He even suggested the other day that Boilermaker tourists could visit Cooperstown to the south and Valley Forge to the north!

Don Dudley has a plastic face. Saw him at the Expo on Friday...very rude and fake. Whoever handed him any sort of "power" at the station should reevaluate the situation. Bad move, the guy is not one of us.......
