Local News Sucks

Could WBNG news be any worse?

Recommended Posts

Had WBNG on about a week ago, and it was time for the "anchors" to turn it over to the sports babe (no need to remember her name, she will be gone within a few months) and the poor girl's audio wasn't on, so she couldn't be heard.  The anchors started laughing hysterically. This is what local news has come to.  You've got immature children on camera and in the control room.

I never cared for Candace Chapman or Greg Caitlin, but they ran a professional organization and presented a well run program.

The few times I've tuned in, it's obvious that the station is now hiring from the very bottom of the barrel of the graduating classes.

I'm not sure if it is because no one in their right mind wants to move here and work in this market, or because the station is offering lousy starting wages. Maybe both.

It's getter closer and closer to looking like this:

At least Howard is back w/ weather...those youngsters who say "BUT" every other word, just like that Nick Merianos used to, need to go.

Scott Sasina is horrible.  He doesn't have the look to be on television and he struggles reading simple sentences.  Chloe Vincente is very good.  But like all the good ones, she will probably be on to a bigger city soon.

I spoke to Karen Iby 10 years ago.   When she started she spent a week learning about the area and how to pronounce the names of the cities and towns and the local pols.

Now they just throw them in front of the camera.

According to an employee at WBNG they were pressured to hire two black reporters, who normally wouldn’t have been considered if it wasn’t for their race.

And if they aren't promoted to lead anchors in the next six months, the station is obviously racist.


Does anyone remember the station's attempt at affirmative action in the '70s with Beverly Oxley?

As bad as she was back then, she could probably run rings around this horrible crop of millennials.

What happened to Ann Sparaco?

He’s f’n awful. Acts like he’s a local celebrity now because he’s an anchor at some shitty CBS affiliate in Binghamton, NY. He really does suck.

Nope, all they do is parrot deepstate talking points. Covid, covid, covid, Russia, Russia, Russia, orange man bad, orange man bad, orange man bad. They are as much of a destruction to this Community as Bob Joseph and WBNF are. Total losers, sellouts and scumbags. They do not have our interests in mind. Period.
