How did it get so bad? Wasn't WKTV the crown jewel of media not too long ago in this town?

It was but then they ran all the good people off to lower the big salaries to make the place look better for a perspective buyer. Now they pay less and got less.

I just passed through Utica and saw what you call TV news. Wow, I've been all over the world and this is the first time I've seen people being trained as news readers to actually appear on a commercial broadcast.

They should have a let the advertiser run the station day as part of the value added they throw at me. First thing I would do is to get rid of the drunks, sluts, idiots, readers and adulturers. Then I would give myself the rates the "preferred" advertisers get.

They wouldn't survive if this stuff was really going on so it looks like you are making everything up.

As a long time local advertiser I can tell you this stuff is not made up. I wish it was because then I would still be spending my ad budget with them. Moved to WUTR and cable for the first time. Cable is working really well. Should have made that move sooner.

They are looking for another sales rep, Daphne ran another one off. She is running out of friends to hire.

Daphne would have to have friends to hire them. She doesn't have any friends just people she uses for a while and when they get tired of her they walk away if theyre smart
Too bad

I spent a tremendous amount of money with WKTV and dated the GSM for a bit. She made me run acrossthe street and to radio. She is a desparate woman and the new owners should look at her history. That old bag is nothing but trouble.

Watching WUTR news right now and saw my commercial. Not going to see it on WKTV again until Daphne is gone and the news becomes watchable again. Then it's off to watch it run on cable for the rest of the night paid for with WKTVs lost budget.
Well is always wrong

Not sure what looks better. Uticas roads or Daphne's face? Both are riddled with pot holes.
But only one of them will ruin your shocks. Want to guess which one?

The only advertiser they'd let run the station would be Alex. I wonder if they pay 10 cents on the dollar for advertising on WKTV vs the rest of the advertisers who subsidize their cheap rates.

Caught the noon news today.
Jason is so awful to listen to...broadcasting 101, know how to read your lines.
He reads like he is doing a sports report.
I had to turn on YNN, just could not listen to Jason for another minute. Jason...do you ever playback your news...please listen to yourself a few times, you need to get it together! You can not possibly believe you are doing the best job you can, when you read the news. Please, if we must have you on the news, try to improve your reading and presentation skills. It has been long enough for you to get the change from sports to local news.
I used to work for her and had to quit because I couldn't take it anymore.

When Jason was sports director, a good number of sports announcers came and joined him. Every single one of them moved on to bigger and better stations, and obviously more pay. H Except him! And now, he isn't even in that position. He was terrible at sports and he is terrible at present position That should speak volumes.

She and the station must read out loud the temperatures across the viewing area for those who can't read them clearly. There are elderly and vision impaired individuals who need to hear the news. So the bottom line is not everyone can see the map, you shouldn't base your own judgement on others who may be impaired.
If they are elderly or vision impaired they are not watching to much other TV, so don't make up excuses for her.
