I remember the Gazette article that came out after they ceased news operations. There was a picture of a few of the employees in the parking lot, I believe. I've never met Scott Roberts but I found it odd to see him standing in the parking lot, smoking a cigarette next to an old beat up car. I don't know I guess I thought only radio people drove old beat up cars.

I watched the WB news every night it was on.
High comedy.

That was rather funny...I never got a chance to catch the WB 30 news when it was on.
That newscast makes my local public access channel look like a professional broadcast.
Those owners must have been smoking something to think they would come close to beating the established stations in Charleston/Huntington.

Here's a quote from Tom McGee that I got from an old Gazette article on the new newscast.

"It's going to be first-rate," he said of the news operation. "When I first got involved, I had seen that program in Ohio. I was thoroughly unimpressed. Harker has spent millions of dollars improving the signal. He's got reporters. He's bought vehicles. For those who hoped this wouldn't happen, they'd better rethink." 8O

It was more like, "Welcome to Bubbidy News..."

Tom was the shit. News in Charleston has sucked since his last run in with Johnny Law. I'll never forget having to watch my poor sweet Grandmother cry when he announced on air that he had gotten another D.U.I.

Speaking of Scott Roberts, assuming he's still in broadcasting, WTOV in Steubenville STILL hasn't replaced weekend sportscaster Ryan Recker, who went to sunny Tucson just in time for Spring training. Don 'Nacho Man' Sloan hasn't had a day off since.

Here's how "58Live" covered his home confinement back in November 2002, including John DeVoicent's astounding job on "Me And Tommy McGee".
