    He's a walking, talking, creepyass Tussaud exhibit. His face doesn't move, his mouth doesn't move, his hair doesn't move.

    Let's see yours :devious:

    I like ours. Sue Simmons and Chuck Scarborough, NBC channel 4.


    Then, of course, there is Al Roker, my all time favorite. Always smiling.

    Huh, I guess those are the local guys there, huh? To me they're the big ones.

    We've got Dick, Dick Preston here.

    Didn't Deborah Norville put an end to this blonde bombshell anchor problem after her stint on Today?

    When I see some of these people, I find the plastiman looks they sport to be distracting me from what they're saying. If I have to be watching the news, I'd rather be looking at a closer facsimile to an Average Joe/Jane.

    Hmm, my district manager looks a lot like Al Roker, but slimmer. Good or bad thing, who knows. :shrug:

    HL, I swear we almost got a perfect match: Mark Suppelsa and Robin Robinson.

    I think the Good Day New York (FOX) local morning news team is pretty spiffy looking, not to mention fun and seemingly real.

    I remember when she was a reporter on Channel 5 (?) in Atlanta. :lloyd:

    Our local talking heads aren't very glamorous.

    Tony Cipolla is our main news anchor.


    The co-anchor spot seems to rotate between Wendy Thies and Kimberly Romo.

    This is Dave Hovde, the weather guy. He is flat-out WEIRD.


    The rest of the news team

    A few years ago, we had a weather dude who channel hopped around for a couple years. My brother-in-law swore he kept moving because he was a child molester. We all laughed at him.

    Sure enough, the guy got busted a couple years later in Columbus, soliciting for underage male prostitutes.

    Eeew. :eek6:

    Remember the weather dude in Atlanta who was a suspect in the drowning death of his girlfriend at his houseboat on Lake Lanier? Whatever happened in that case?

    I met that guy on the docks once when the sports guy was doing a report on the America's Cup race from a boat in the marina. The weather guy was a helicopter pilot and had flown the sports guy to the marina in the station's helicopter. Seemed like a nice person.

    the best radio weather man in lake charles, louisiana used to be the best weather man on tv...but he was of a experimenting nature and several years ago he was admitted to the next town overs hospital for a large garden vegetable stuck in his anus.......i think i would have driven alot further than the next town for treatment...anyway, it is a catholic area and they just couldn't learn the weather from a man who doesn't take their religion seriously and he was canned. robin roberts? rob robinson? rob roberts? i forget.

    Russ Minchew? (Minshew?) If it was, it was something like 20 years ago.

    The best weatherman here is Tom Skilling, the brother of Enron's Jeffrey Skilling. Wherever there's corruption, there's gotta be a Chicago connection, I guess.

    Oily Rat AKA John Campbell, 3 News Anchor:

    Yeah, he looks a lot like Morden out of Babylon 5.... :retard:

    That rings a bell, but I csan't remember the name.

    And yeah, I think Minshew was the weather dude.

    Obviously, they don't pre-screen vigorously enough around here.

    Russ Minshew always did kinda look creepy. :erm:

    I remembered the chopper pilot's name: Bruce Erion. He was on Channel 11.

    That's right. I thought it might have been Keith Kallan, but the big story there was the fact that the poor dude died way early.
