just to clear something up also, as of right now Charles is still Chief Met until he leaves which is I believe the first of June, after May Sweeps is over. I also believe there will be some sort of sweeps piece announcing the departure to the public, but that's just a rumor I heard, I dunno if it's true.

You are right. Charles is still the chief until he leaves, then Drew will take over. Congrats Drew you deserve it. Now go in there and show'em what you've got!

I work for a competitor. It's nice to see good people rewarded for having paid their dues and doing good work. Congratulations
on your achievement!

Who will do the morning show? It won't be Ted that's for sure. He isn't quite ready yet. I'm sure Drew is going to hire someome well-qualified.

The morning shows would definitely be more amusing if Ted did them.

Way to go Drew! I know you have paid your dues at the station and it is a well deserved promotion for you. Best of luck my friend! EM

Is Hearst to cheap to bring someone in for the top job?

Wow. I think of Drew more as a morning talent, but I could be wrong. Good luck to him!

Are you kidding me? Drew deserves this. He's paid his dues, he knows what he's doing, and he's amazing on air. I think he could make 40/29's weather dept go leaps and bounds.

Congratulations, Drew! I'm so happy for you, and without a doubt you'll do well.

Of bigger concern...

Who has the job of scraping Charles head off the 40/20 trucks and painting Drews on?

 
At 7:29 AM, May 09, 2006, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I guess the same person who scraped off Aaron Peters' head. How much money have they wasted on those trucks with all the turnover?

Cannon's head would've been a safer choice.....he's been there and will always be there:)

yeah right. drew is a stiff. the only reason this is good for 40/29 is that its not salser anymore.

I'm just glad to see KHOG giving a robot this kind of opportunity. Robots are just like us. Except they have plastic looking heads and talk really weird. Congrats to Drew the robotical weather dude

Anyone ever notice how he turns his head at a 75 degree angle when he's in a 2-box w/ Jennifer?

 
At 7:32 AM, May 13, 2006, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Robotic or not (and I don't think he is)....Drew was the most qualified and the most logical choice for the job.

KHOG was not going to take another chance and hire someone from outside and receive the tremendous backlash that they got when they hired Mark Lericos (instead of promoting Rusty or Derek). They weren't making that mistake again.

Drew deserved the job...he put in some SERIOUS work over the years there.

 
At 10:55 PM, May 14, 2006, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I agree that Drew was the most logical & obvious choice, but he's got some big shoes to fill. Regardless of what you say about Charles, he's got a HUGE presence at that station and whether you folks want to admit it or not people watched him.

On another unrelated note, WTF is up with all the sex stories on 40? It resembles Hard Copy now.

i think it is just the fact that is was happening right under everybody's nose over at the xxx shop on the state line. that place was right next to the most visited casino in the area. also, a school employee of an unknown district and a minister were found to be performing lewd acts there. sounds very worthy of news to me. i think most people were very shocked to see what was happening there.

It was a nice scoop for them early but it's old news now, actually over a week old.

It's called sensationalism when you run the same b-roll just so you can say "sex" everynight with no new developments in the story.

40/29 had new developments every day last week. From the secret apartments, to the hidden cameras...it was all new all week long.

Channel 40 had interior shots of thw raid when it happened. Channel 5 did not. KNWA doesn't care either way.

Holding video for a week and then airing it isn't a new development.

You might have a fake name and some plastic surgery but you are still more real than Salser! Good Luck. P.S. Tell Leslee she looked better with no hair instead of the cheap Barbie knock off extentions.

Some of you guys desperately need prayer. I don't work at 40/29 but no one deserves the personal attacks that some of you spout off.

It is easy for these cowards to rip someone anonymously. They wouldn't have the balls to reveal their true identity. I can guarantee you they wouldn't say half of this stuff to their face.

I agree, 90% of the people on this blog in general are clueless and honestly do not know most of the people personally that they seem so quick to rip on. Much less know about this biz of television. Seems to me that let's bust on the people that are doing well, because we are jealous, grow up...most of you, that's what you need to do is grow up. This is not junior high anymore, it's called professionalism, of which most on here lack, integrity and responsibility which all lack as well. The reality is that Drew is very,very good, Charles is very, very good and again, it sounds to me as though many of you are just jealous that you are not. Shame on you, just keep your mouths shut if you have nothing nice to say! Good Grief!!!! Good Luck Drew, well deserved!

Drew likely deserves the job for you folks from 40/29 who made the above posts. Again, you are also correct that this is not junior high. It's the real world! Have a nice day.

Yeah, I have to admit...you know the "sex" story is too much when they flash "Inside the mind of a sex addict" during Grey's Anatomy when Meredith and McDreamy are "getting it on". You CANNOT tell me they didn't do that on purpose! Everybody thought it was sooo cheesy!

I saw that too! Here's what the 40/29 control room probably sounded like: "Panties are down, roll promo!...Inside the mind of a sex addict." I wonder how difficult it was to find a guy who likes to whack it. Great feature guys.

You are so right! You know they were back there rolling tape..timing themselves...waiting for the perfect moment to flash that up there. They might think it helped their ratings...but no!!!! Nobody cares!!!! They just care about Grey's Anatomy and then they click it over to another station.

 
At 2:32 PM, May 21, 2006, Anonymous Anonymous said...

if you two idiots had a clue, you would know that they have to put that "snipe" up at a certain time during the show. They don't get to put it up when they want, so no, there was no timing to it.

Aww....did I hurt your wittle feelings?? Then don't sit here and bitch about how someone does their job. These people do their job how they are told to do it. They don't care about ratings or if it is the right moment. They are doing what they are told to do, when they are told to do it, and what is necessary to get their paychecks to support themselves and their families and in turn they get snide little comments from people like you who don't have a clue about what is really going on. Quit picking on every little thing. You think you can do it better? Then do it. Put up or shut up

To the above poster....chill out. Get some medication if you need to...but PLEASE chill out. You're going to have a stroke! Everybody thought it was funny...that's it!No personal thrashing, no name calling. Just good old plain humor. Get a hold on yourself!

They should care about ratings...b/c if the ratings aren't good, they won't have a job.
