Actually Channels 6/28 has some really good on air folks, but they have five that bring the rest down so badly that they fall out of first place by a mile. Carol Luper needs to be put out to pasture. She is so old school it is pathetic. The new guy Kendrick is a buffoon. But there are three that every time they come on any more I change the channel. Johnny DiLoretto is a total waste of air time and his stories are childish. Adam Slinger and Steve Levine both want to be Jerry Springer, but they don't have even that much talent. Can anyone get them to just stand still and give us the information instead of acting like someone is goosing them all the time.
I forgot about Johnny Diloretto. That guy also sucks and makes me want to turn the channel quick. If it wasnt for Yolanda Harris, the Gahanna grad, I would never sit through 4 seconds of WSYX news.

My statement had nothing to do with his on field talent, Just his Fashion sense. And that was 13 years ago. He can't keep cashing that check...

My two least favorite Columbus news personalities were/are Cabot Rhea and Gabe Spiegal. I really hated Gabe Spiegal, Im glad I was proven correct in my hate when he and his buddy killed a man while driving home drunk at 5 or 6 in the morning. I wish that man was never injured but it just proved how Gabe was a hippocrite smug yuppie. WBNS really has nobody I dislike except Chris Bradley "dippity do doppler" man. My favorites are Yolanda Harris at channel 6 and Mike Davis as meteoroligist and probably Jerry Revish as news anchor.
WBNS wins the ratings because they have the most likeable personalities, with the exception of Yolanda Harris. She needs to leave channel 6/28. Like I said, I really dislike Cabot Rhea, and Gabe Spiegal was the worst I have seen.
The Common Man and Torg need to go on 1460, they suck bad.
I completely agree with you about the Common man and the Torg!!! The day after Ronnie james Dio died they played heaven and hell coming back from commercial and one of those Aholes said "I hate this song, I'm glad he's dead"
I haven't listened since.

Ha ha! Yes, I know who caught the winning TD. Stanley was my play-maker of that game. Check this out. http://www.elevenwarriors.com/2009/12/flashba... Stanley consistently got open and extended drives. So that's my take.

So, the quality of the newscast is judged simply by whether or not you like the people delivering it too you. Not the content, mind you, but the face who tells it to you.

Actually, with many stories duplicated on each channel, maybe the likeability of anchors is really the deciding factor.

Like you said the news content is exactly the same on every channel, so to me the deciding factor as to which channel I watch is whether the people come across likeable.
Even the nightly national news is the same at 630 and people tune in to the more likeable and knowledgable anchors.
