I understand that as a third or fourth tier market, Jackson, TN will never have first pick at the "new anchor" lottery. But, these new ones never seem to improve.
The station cannot even seem to que the proper videos at the proper time.
I can't even understand the new weather woman. She either has no voice inflection on air personality) and/or emphasizes the wrong words.

I like the new weather girl. I'm glad the weather guy Nick left. He was hermon munster creepy. The new younger weather man is very very good. I wish they would get rid of Gary Pickens and keep the new weatherman. Oh speaking of creepy, what about the new chubby balding guy with the weird eyes who hosts the morning news. We have to wake up and see THAT on in the morning. NO THANKS!

Back in the day, when you turned on the news local or national it was read to you by a 50ish old white man. He gave it to you straight and didn't waste time trying to entertain you. To tell you how bad it was, everybbody thought Barbara Walters was eye candy.

Exactly, they just read the news.

Why is it that the usual business of delivering news, weather or anything is just a step beyond WBBJ?

Even if Nick was gay and proud of it, he was a very nice and a valuable part of our community. He participated in so many philantropic efforts. We loved you NICK!

He is well and truly missed as is Brandon Artilles. Thank goodness for Jonquil (sp?). She is so very talented, we will probably lose her too.

Mr. Britt, Mr. Pickens, Mr.Douglass, Ms. McAlister and Mr. McEvoy are talented as well.
The new anchors/weather people probably just need seasoning.
I guess WBBJ doesn't pay well enough to attract top tier talent. I don't mind being within their first market, where they hone their skills.

I never said anything about someone being gay. I said he was creepy. Why would you feel compelled to share his sexual preference with everyone? I could care less.
I said he was creepy. That was a critique of his on air presence and has nothing to do with his sexual life which is nobody's business and I as someone who casually watches the local news would have never known unless you brought it up. I'm sorry you equate "creepy" with "gay".

My issue with Mike McEvoy is that he apparently thinks he's something better than he is. In recent days on facebook I've seen that he made himself a fanpage... not a regular facebook page but a fanpage like he's a celebrity or something. Wake up dude and realize you are a no name local weather guy who is wrong most of the time anyway.

It is funny to see a guy who makes about $20,000 a year thinks he is doing weather in New York or LA. What a complete goof and loser!

What's the difference between having a fan page and a regular account? They'd be basically the same thing. They should put stuff on wbbjtv.com , because their website blows.

I don't see a problem with the facebook thing though, your over thinking...
