First, let me say that I love these people. I watch them every morning and every night. They are the fuzzy blanket of normalcy draped over the rocky chunks of news…or something. Every time I travel somewhere, it feels strange to get the news from whoever does the job at their local station, but of course those guys are somebody else’s fuzzy blanket of normalcy (even though they’re totally weird).
We have a weather guy who always uses the word “eventually”, but pronounces it “E-bain-tually”. I don’t know what that’s all about. Never have I heard anyone else say it that way.
There’s a female reporter who says her name at the end of every story she covers, but gives it the inflection of “Say whaaaaaaaaat?” I can’t help but mimic her out loud every time, but I like it.
There used to be a lady on who had a very sunny personality. She really brought the cheerfulness level up in the studio. But the best thing about her was that she looked like a living character from the animated show Duckman. She was a delight, but unfortunately has now moved on to greener pastures.
Anything interesting about the TV newsanchors in your area?
