He uses the OD as a source of information for his world winning interview. HAHAHAHA

WUTR also use Topix to gather info and comments.

He has been here 5 months, I say it is time for him to move on.

He is not a reporter of news but instead a gossip journalist.

The only one that really is impressed with him is HIM.

WUTR needs to show it's advertisers and viewers that they are a real news station.

i guess you haven't watched Jason Powles on WKTV then. If you think Don is bad believe me Jason is worse. He can't even read off a TelePrompTer. Let alone sound like he has a mouth full of marbles. Bur he comes across as thinking he is the best thing since sliced bread.

And WKTV does a great job reading press releases or getting the big story from a scanner. They wouldn't know how to go find a newstory if it jumped up and bit them in the azz. It wouldn't be able to bite them anyways as they all just sit around on their azzes all day everyday.

they will run the shames stories for days because they can't go out and do real reporting. Turn to YNN or the Syracuse channel and they will have news from the valley before the two utica stations do. It is a same that we have to pay for cable or other means and get such poor broadcasting.

I totally agree and that is why I can't watch him either.

At least a press release and a scanner feed are first hand sources.

Let's just be honest, local news in this market just sucks. You have WKTV that looks like 1994 still, and you have Dudders over at WUTR..... Thank God for Syracuse news.

WKTV is pure amatuer. For example, watch Kristen and Don Buttman when they giggle during their newscast.
WUTR tried to reinvent their station. When they came back on the air, they're broadcast was O.K. Now that they have replaced everyone, the station is trying to spew more vomit than WKTV.
I'll tell you, it's pretty close but Don Spudley might be able to bore us more thjan WKTV.
What a mess they both serve up for a news broadcast.
Jeff Matthews you get a pass for being the only professional !
Check out WTVH from Syracuse.
P.S. Count how many times Don Buttman flashes his wedding man band!

At least Don is more professional than Powles and all his giggling. The girl reporters, Anna Meiler and Julia Rose do a great job for both of the station's.
