Bulldog has a suggestion

Bulldog has a suggestion

From the ‘Dawg: If the WLOSers really want to stand out in the local TV market, why not go with three anchors? They could have Darcel sitting with Tammy Scott Watsham, then all three could turn in unison to look at Simon Cuevas, sorta like synchronized swimmers. Or, if they really wanted to win the ratings war, my old friend[Read More…]

Blog bits: Charu looking peachy and more

Lunchtime for Charu My spywitnesses over at Tupelo Honey tell me that Cherub Charu stopped in for lunch Thursday afternoon. Charu’s chauffeur, a local television station photographer, parked in a no-parking zone along Pritchard Park while Charu dashed in to make her order. Let me go off on a tangent for a minute – I hate it when the TV[Read More…]

The bumper stickers are here, folks

The long-awaited, much anticipated bumperstickers are finally in. What do you think? You likey? Me likey. I think I’ll order some more of the “We Still Blog” ones to be red and white, like the original “We Still Pray” bumperstickers that I’m playing off of. For all you folks who aren’t from Ashvegas, the We Still Pray movement was a[Read More…]

Blog bits: McDowell County madness

Blog bits: McDowell County madness

Folks, there is more craziness in Mack-Dowell County than you can shake a stick at. The county continues to produce the steadiest stream of madness out there. Check this shit out (I can’t make this up, people): Police Rx for diabetic 76-year-old: Mace in the face It seems that McDowell County Sheriff’s Department deputies have their own prescription for old[Read More…]

Anchors away!

Anchors away!

Bulldog suggested this little contest. I think it’s a great one: Can anyone fill in the blanks on WLOS anchors who’ve sat beside Diva Darcel? I can think of … – Bob Williams – Mark Pompilio – Jon Greiner – Frank Kracher But there must be a half-dozen others. How about an Ashvegas contest for anyone who can put them[Read More…]

Good park, bad park

Good park, bad park

I enjoyed the local TV news Wednesday night. I really did. Scott and Candice looked sharp, and have been for the past few days. The way Scottie-too-Hottie’s tie matches Candy’s blazer is quite nice. The colors have been right on, all bright and silky. Diva Darcel also looked good in her beige blazer (went well with the weave.) No major[Read More…]

Minority media hires

Minority media hires

There’s an interesting document on the WLOS web site that you may not have noticed before. It’s a required EEO report that shows what efforts the local TV station made to reach out to hire women and minorities. I think it was about five years ago that the federal government required these reports to be compiled and published on the[Read More…]

Rashad revisited

Rashad revisited

Taking into account that Bulldog is an avowed Dookie, I decided to go ahead and let him have his say here on Rashad, because I think he’s right: I’m getting a little weary of athletes like Rashad McCants whining about their “struggles” and not “getting respect” and being “misunderstood.” McCants has received privileged treatment since he was old enough to dunk[Read More…]

The Gore report

The Gore report

Here it is, sports fans. The Ashvegas police report that an officer collected from pro golfer Jason Gore after his fancy 2004 black Ford SUV was broken into. The report was filed June 13, but it was big news this past weekend at the U.S. Open in Pinehurst when Gore joked about it, saying all the thieves got was some[Read More…]

What did they just say?

Oh, the joys of live television. Let’s recap, just to be sure we heard right over the past few days: Julie Weather? Russ “Nice Buns” Bowen was tossing the talk over to Julie “It’s a wonder I’m ever right” Wunder the other night, when he blundered. “And now let’s go to Julie Weather…” Russ corrected himself, and joked it off[Read More…]

Rashad, lame

Rashad, lame

Rashad McCants’ stock continues to drop faster than a pair of Katie Holmes’ panties, this time during a stop over in Charlotte to work out with the Bobcats today. Just 45 minutes into his warmups, Rashad pulled a hammy. He apparently sat around the rest of the time making faces, according to the video tape I saw on the news,[Read More…]

WANTED: One WLOS anchor

WANTED: One WLOS anchor

As I mentioned in my blog bits post, it’s been months since WLOS said goodbye to anchor Frank Cracker and WLOS has yet to name a successor. Scott “Scottie-too-Hottie” Wickersham appears to be the heir apparent, but as far as I can tell, it’s not a done deal. In fact, there’s still a job posting on the local TV station’s[Read More…]

Jawad looking for some respect

The one guy from the super-talented Tar Heels national championship squad that nobody really seems to be talking about much as we approach the NBA draft is Jawad Williams. ‘Wad, the behind-the-scenes leader of the crew, the guy who started ahead of Marvin Williams, one of the guys who stuck it out through the lean Doherty years.

Blog bits: What was Tammy wearing?

Tammy all dolled up What was Tammy wearing the other night – some sort of crimson jacket with a high-collared, sequined thing underneath. She looked like a freakin’ Vegas showgirl or something. Tammy, you got a gig on the side, or what? We’re used to seeing Tammy around town in a ballcap and jeans, looking more like a dude than[Read More…]
