DISH Network customers in the Kanawha Valley haven't had access to WOWK-TV for more than a week, and neither the company nor the station would talk about the details Thursday.

They must have gotten him dirt cheap or no other respectable journalist would work for them.

Our other stations in town and other cities I have traveled to have news anchors that are somewhat easy on eyes. But what is up with WOWK and that old man at 6 & 11pm news ? Is it bad lighting or something ? He looks 90 years old and scary. I usually don't watch their news unless the other stations have sports on during 6pm, but 5 minutes is all I can take of the old man and the lady with the mole face.

WOWK has always had scary-looking anchors because they're competing with WCHS for the haunted house viewers. Actually WCHS beat out WOWK years ago for those viewers with their husband-wife anchor that knock the socks off Godzilla.

C'mon, guys, give that old guy a break. Sure, he's upwards of 110, but so what? He can still get up in the mornin' and put on them pants with his leg fallin' off. That alone is worth a cigar.

. But he talks so slow. He needs 2 hours to read the news. 30 minute newscast is too short. By the time he tells us of Breaking News, it's old news.

Okay, okay, he's a 120 operating on the low side of 150. Sorry 'bout that. Maybe that leg of his DOESN'T fall off when he puts his pants on the mornin' even though the other leg creaks and cracks as he walks up the stairs to get to the bathroom after 3 in the mornin'. But hellfire, he's still alive and kickin' and he AIN'T in the casket. Give that man a ceeeeeeee-gar!

Senior citizen, heck, that guys way past being a senior citizen. At 120, that's WAY beyond being a senior citizen. Maybe WOWK pays him a buck an hour if Gary Cary didn't get up on the wrong side of the bed

. If he is getting $1 dollar an hour, he is still making 90 cents more per hour an the other employees.

We are entirely too generous with them workers. A buck an hour, HA! A dime an hour, HA! Make them WOWK employees pay Gary Cary to work for him! Then the setup with be just right, like Little Miss Tuffet said when she said on Muffin.

Ha ha ha, Joe Manchin. How come you get paid all those hundreds of thousands of dollars and them bribes and kickbacks and benefits over there where you work? Come on, Joe, get real and make Gray Cary pay that old guy at least $7.50 / hr.

I clicked on this thread to see why people are still commenting on this out of date subject.

You people need to get off of here and get an education. You sound like a bunch of uneducated idiots. Do you read what you write before you post?

"them workers" really??? "them bribes"
"Little Miss Tuffet said when she said on Muffin"

I believe it was Little Miss Muffin that SAT on a Tuffet.

Little Miss Muppet sat on her muffin. I heard somebody say that, maybe, could it be, a famous US Senator, said that? Yes, indeed, them workers need more than $7.50 an hour, but Bray Cary won't do it, nope. He wants that old guy to work for a buck an hour. What a shame.
