After about 10 minutes of NewsChannel 2 at 6 pm, I wind up watching Kate on News 10 Now. More news, and with a lady who can actually READ the teleprompter, hello?

Kate rules.

It's not even worth bashing News Channel 2. They're not going to be on the air very much longer. NBC will be pulling the plug because they finally realized that there is not enough news in this area to warrant a local affiliate. Good riddance to them!

Gosh, you guys must be desperate for talent if you have to go advertising to a bunch of Utica haters on Topix. But then again, Utica haters are the only smart people in the area. If you're wondering why we haven't left it's because we're still waiting for our ticket out. It's hard to save up enough money to move when you have two degrees and you're only making $8 per hour working at Dunkin' Donuts.

As a previous poster already said what's the point, turn on WKTV and you'll quickly turn to News 10 or Syracuse, for those hoping for a return to Utica's Renaissance a 50 year old show on Channel 47 in Black and White would probably bring back memories of "Leave it to Beaver" and the Busy Corner.Dave Roefaro was still a little sperm waiting to be shot out then.

You may have a point there. Gannett dumped the OD, and the OD's still hanging on. There are times, though, when the Daily Sentinel has better coverage! Maybe someday history may repeat itself. WUTR-TV 20 dropped its news center. Maybe 'KTV will be next? Time will tell. When Bill Worden retires, viewership (I predict) will drop dramatically.

"WKTV close down?? Dream on. That station is, always was and always will be a cash cow. No matter what corporate entity owns it, they worship wktv because it's either the most profitable or the only profitable station they own. That station is making money hand over fist and will NEVER be shut down. It might change hands alot but only a fool would close it down-it makes too much money."

WKTV is definitely going off the air soon. The award they recently won was just a way to soften the blow that's to come.

Get your poison ready because the end is near.

Never worry about Bill retiring anytime soon. They'll prop him up & hold him together w/piano wire if need be. He's the stations cash cow!

Lyle Bosley is dead. Too late, guy!

I remember reading an article about Lyle back in 1973 written for and published in that old free paper "Drums Along the Mohawk" (not to be confused with the drum corps pageant in Rome, NY). Lyle had said in the interview that he thought women TV news reporters would never make it because their voices were annoying. Though the remark was sexist and without much proof behind it, I wonder if 90% of these women moving up through the journalistic ranks would even BE on camera today, were it not for cable, satellite, 24 hour news stations, or lack of male interest in the field. So few have any talent at all, and many copy each other's robotic bitchy style of reporting. Dime a dozen, I'd say.'KTV has a few women who are very exceptional, though, and could prove old Lyle wrong!

I remember the studio crew would play pranks on Lyle as he did the weather report. Like the time one August when Lyle was pointing out the temperatures around the region on the map behind him. Most of the temps were in the high 70s one evening but there was Old Forge, reporting in at 32 degrees. And Lyle just rolled with the punch.

The news on WKTV is horrid. No one can read the script without stumbling over even the simplest words. Pat Bailey is the worst! And they couldn't coordinate the video to the news story being read if their lives depended on it. What a bunch of amatuers. Its like the Keystone Kops running a TV station!
