i remember when i was a lot younger channel 4 used to have the editor do an editorial every night on subjects he was outraged about..JACk miller on channel 30 does that at times too..thats what i liked..a newsman who didnt give a piss if he got on the bad side of the city leaders and business men if he thought something was wrong....
Bill Grove and company did that for Channel 4 in their heyday (1960's and early 70's). CBS had Eric Sevaried on Walter Cronkite, but when he finished, I could never figure out what his point was. I guess that's why he was on for so long - he didn't offend anyone because he never staked out a position. A lot like today's "editorials" in various media. No guts, no glory.

Hey Kid, they were getting warmer with that piece last night on the City Council. At least they interviewed someone who encouraged people to get involved.

How about a few more meaty stories now on what the Council is actually deliberating and voting on.

Yeah, he's the one... maybe he should have got hit harder.
I think he is obsessive/compulsive about being clean... he and Richard Nunn keep sanitizer at their desks and sanitize about 500 times a day.
i do like richard nunn though he does make me smile in the morning because he is so goofy.

Worst news report of the week:

TV12's Angela Spears wins hands down when she reported it was the one year anniversary of Britney Spears shaving her head.

Gee! Has a year passed already? How time flies.

Who writes this garbage and are those two related?

Phil Amato. Grates on my nerves. I wish he'd just shut up.#2 is Angela Spears. I don't think she could speak without a prompter.

There are so many bad local news people it's hard to choose...but overall I think that Channel 4 had the worst assortment: that creepy Adam Landau needs to be shown the door....fast. Casey Black, oh my God, she needs to take that too-tight red satin blazer that she wears on the air 8-10 times per month and give it BACK to the Goodwill. Richard Nunn isn't all that bad but he needs to do the stupid weather and stop with the idiocy. I hear that WJXT recently purchased a new warehouse to hold Staci Spanos' ego. Bruce Hamilton? Why the hair dye, Botox, and veneer teeth? George Winterling needs to catch the community transit bus back to Cypress Village and stay there. Rebecca Bunny was a great choice as an eye-candy addition to the team, unless you need to know the weather...so I guess that she and the others can stay for now....

On to 12 & 25...Donna and Tim Deegan are a complete disgrace not only to WTLV/WJXX but also to humankind...others are too nondescript to warrant a mention.

Channel 4:
Sam Kouvaris has the best sports coverage in town.(along with Sean)
Adam Landau and the reporter Scott (ultra dramatic)**** bad. Rebecca Barry wouldn't know anything about the weather if it weren't for George and expecially John Gaugn(sp) the rest are just ok, except for the morning show which is painful to watch.
FCN: love Donna Deegan and Tim's weather. Hicken sucks and covers sports terribly. at least they don't cover the noles. i like Shannon Ogden too. the reporters seem pretty good too.
i don't watch any other local news because the coverage is so terrible. Mark Spain looks like a Muppet.
That too funny and ironic because my wife told me the same thing

Hands down, Without a doubt, the worst of the worst on our television news is Tim Deegan. Old Leatherhead is wrong most of the time, and his swinging, and swaying all across the map make me sick. Just tell us whats happening, and shut up, and get a haircut. That is unless you are growing that hair for Donna, and her chemo. Tim gets about 15 minutes of waving his arms around the map, and we get about three minutes of news. We have about five football,and basketball colleges. We have baseball. We have High School Sports, and can't get it because leatherface takes all the time. Come on Tim, spend a little more time on the surfboard. Who knows, there could be a Great White out there waiting for you.
this post is too funny. I was laughing for 5 minutes reading about Tim Deegan. I like Casey Black and Diane Cho on WJXT

I visited my home state, Florida, recently, and was pleased to see Staci Spanos on the WJXT. I do not agree with your opinion. Staci Spanos is one of the finest individuals I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I went to college with her and found her to be talented and sincere personally and professionally. Your talk is lashon hara, which is Hebrew for "evil speech". If you don't like the program, simply don't watch that news show. I believe you are showing your envy by accusing these news anchors of having big egos. There is nothing wrong with being confident, but arrogance is always distasteful. I do not find these qualities in news anchors.

I regard George Winterling highly, and I think he still does a great job. He speaks clearly and he knows what he is talking about.
