    Quote He’s OK, I guess…he’s a local boy (Ashtabula) and went to THE OSU – both will earn him brownie points in this town.

    Quote GMC has the misfortune of being up against Fox 8 News in the Morning – which is like the Toronto Raptors vs LeBron.  TV 5 tries and tries, but they just can’t get through the brick wall on Dick Goddard Way (which is how all the other stations in the 70s and 80s felt going up against the WEWS behemoth known as the Morning Exchange).  As far as Katie Ussin goes, she obviously wants to be in a bigger market, as she is coming in from Dayton, so who can fault her for that?

    Well, perhaps Fox 8 could hire Bruce.  They seem to be OK with old guys doing the weather.  🙂

    Andre wanted them to hire him when Angelica left, but they didn’t.

    Elisa Amigo leaves San Antonio for Cleveland where will she go in the DMA?

    KABB-TV’s chief anchorwoman Elisa Amigo is exiting her job of three years.
    The Fox affiliate’s 9 p.m. weekday news co-anchor also is leaving San Antonio. Her destination: Cavaliers country.
    Amigo wrote on Facebook that she opted not to renew her contract to be with her husband, who has “career opportunities in Cleveland.”
    “This was certainly not an easy decision, but since I’ve been married, I’ve learned a thing or two. It’s not about me, it’s about WE,” she explained in the post.
    “We decided it was time to make a choice. No more traveling back and forth. We both love our careers, but our time away from work is limited. No matter what comes our way, it’s God and family above all else,” she continued.
    Amigo, a native of Ohio, anchored and reported in Cleveland for eight years before heading to San Antonio in 2014.
