  1. 4 hours ago, former newsboy said:

    As for Marissa, it's terrible to say but it's the cold hard truth: if she didn't gain all that weight, the insufferable Erin Kennedy would have rightfully taken the fall instead.


    Yeah, but isn't she pregnant? That's really crappy to do that, and since her contract was ending, as opposed to her being fired, she probably has no recourse.

  2. It's alright. Lots and lots of screens. I see those tacky ass lights above the stand up area are still there. Did anyone see a weather center this morning? Also, any interview areas or are they going to still use that windowed room?


    I still the WLS does it the best in the market.


    I pass by the building everyday on my way home from work. Bill Bellis is generally outside doing a segment and he always wears sneakers during the broadcast. I thought it was a little odd when I saw him some dress shoes; that desk won't let him hide.

  3. Is this some type of joke? Not sure why he would openly acknowledge one of the reasons he quit was because he was passed over for a job he was never going to get. Why burn the bridge of possibly returning to WMAQ some day?


    He must think the name Ponce holds some type of weight in some circles or something. I know if I was a ND somewhere, I wouldn't hire him.

    I don't know. It seems all tongue-in-cheek. He *was* passed over for even younger eye candy. "Burning a bridge" seems a little harsh.

  4. Question WBBM OR WFLD which one is more relucant to break in during primetime my vote is WBBM but WFLD doesnt always beat them to the punch lately they have though

    You really must use punctuation. I can't, and I'm sure others, can't understand what you're talking about.


    I have a question: What is the policy of replaying a show when WLS breaks in? They only aired the first few minutes of Match Game last night.

  5. Plus, right now he's also busy taping a summer revival of The $100,000 Pyramid for ABC- that's even more, so he's gotta drop something if he wants a remotely workable schedule.

    Taping 10 or episodes of a one hour game is not a big commitment at all. He should be done within in a week or so, if not already.

  6. And had some bad Botox / plastic surgery. I have no issues with some Botox but at least make it appear somewhat natural - you don't need to take out all the wrinkles. Maybe leave a little bit of crows feet. Necks without wrinkles are signs of plastic surgery.


    Does WLS provide make up artists for talent? I'd imagine WABC and Live with Kelly and Michael share make up artists.

    It's always a "damned if you, damned if you don't" with people. "Oh, she looks horrible... look at her wrinkled face!" When they try to do something about it, "she doesn't look natural!" Why don't we pay attention to the news and not be so obsessed about how old everyone looks?

    So it seems they're looking into adding some new, younger faces to the weather team. In all honesty, this has been long overdue. Somewhat cold-blooded to single out Jerry and Tracy for elimination however.


    I really don't see it as more "singled out for elimination" as "who do you like more." I would be offended if I were Mike Kaplan.

    I never said my opinion was fact or made it as fact. I never said that. And I never said that it was my only opinion. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.



    Like I said, I don't judge anyone. But since you said what you said, that's how you feel about it, that's your opinion, and your opinion only. Oh well. It is what it is. And what I said, it is what it is. You call it as you see it, and I call it as I see it. I call a spade a spade. No matter how you splice it or if its been twisted around, a spade is a spade. So YOU take THAT for what it's worth, and you can send that straight to the cleaners.


    Good God, already.


    I rarely post, but you sound ridiculous and unnecessarily redundant. Could you tighten up your arguments a little? A little goes a long way, and you look buffoonish when you go on a diatribe in every post you make.
