    WKYC just hired a COMEDIAN to anchor 11pm news on Fridays! Wow, TEGNA is ruining newscasts!

    https://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/2019/06/wkyc-channel-3-hires-comedian-mike-polk-jr-possibly-as-friday-11-pm-anchor.html

    I don’t think they’re actually gonna put Polk behind the desk as a legit anchor.

    He’ll make appearances and do his “man on the street” schtick and parodies, but he won’t be a hard news anchor.

    Methinks the line about him anchoring the news was just Polk (or his people with his blessing) pulling legs.

    TEGNA hired Reese Waters – a comedian – to anchor WUSA’s morning newscast… WUSA, a CBS affiliate in a top 10 market. Plus Sara Shookman was recently a part of a test project with Reese for an experimental newscast.

    It’s actually very likely that Mike Polk will be an anchor, and that is very sad.

    Recorded in Ultra Stereo, the ultimately superior cousin to Normal Stereo!

    Are we moving more and more toward entertainment and away from hard news? That’s the way it seems.

    The hard core traditional news lovers are mostly age 55+, and that has never been a major advertiser demo target.

    So, hey: why not? Gotta try to stay competitive some way, even if it means taking risks.

    Just read on Facebook that Allison Brown is out at FOX 8. Not sure where she is heading.
