Who has the best local news?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Unfortunately it's WIS, then WLTX. WOLO would be third but

they are broadcast from Charlotte (you did say IN Columbia).

Fox is ok for News of the Weird.

Well, they are based in Charlotte, but they show Columbia's news.

I would rate FOX as second, then WLTX. That weatherman on WOLO is hilarious, but thats about all it has going for it.

Yeah I can't remember his name. I just remember him dressing up in fishnet stockings and a maid's outfit on Halloween a few years ago. I found that amusing.

WIS... no contest. Craig and Dawn at 11 are fun to watch. Plus, WIS has all the babes, right? lol

I admit I'm a news junkie but I hate the sugary sweet emotive

news anchors. The news media wants you emotionally involved

in their story. Often when watching I feel like my mom is handing

me some guilt trip. The emotional anchor manipulates the viewers.

In particular Diane Sawyer annoys me. I like WIS too but in the AM

Hannah N just seems so phony when delivering the news. I mean

the fact traffic is backed up on I-26 is some terrible tragedy we

have to be told about. Whatever happened to just delivering

the news. I think I will move to Charlotte if the airways

are again full of her singing this Christmas! It's not bad..but it's

on for a whole month.

And of course the news teams all hype themselves so much these

days. They have to be the first with breaking news. Last month

WLTX interrupted Letterman for a fender bender. Just unbelievable.

Now Jennifer M IS a babe.

Hilarious!!! Hannah Nelson is annoying with her extreme facial expressions. lol As is Judy G. I think the Dawn/Craig/Ben/Rick mix is fun watch -- best thing WIS has going.

As for the babe factor: My friend has the hots for JM. I used to be all about Kara... but not so much anymore. As for other stations.. Ainsley on WLTX is a favorite of another friend of mine.

I just can't bear to watch WLTX or WOLO.

Tell your pals they are both tied up.

I've gotten so sick of WIS in the morning I only watch WLTX.

Scott and Hannah seem to want to be entertainers and

that is cool if they were always on target. Unfortunately

it is every third joke that works. Mindless blather before

I've had my pint of coffee. The producer of the morning

news show should be shot. And does anyone remember

when they were doing PET BIRTHDAYS every day ? I

mean who puts this crap on air?

WIS used to rock with the news compare to others. No more.

They do have some good reporters !

Hilarious. Luckily, I rarely see the morning crew! Hehe.

My friend also has the hots for Angela Mallen -- the fill-in sports chick with the gruff voice. She scares me, but he's seen her in person. I've never spotted any of the news babes, but I see Jack Kuenzie out *everywhere* -- at one point I was convinced he was following me. He looks like Bert from Sesame Street. :)

Almost forgot. WIS transmits all the way to Myrtle Beach. When I lived there I always used to watch the news from back home.

Have you seen the choir singing the names of the WISTV

news personalities yet? They mention by name about

9 different people. There is definitely something

off with the way they promote the news on WIS.

Yes! It's a riot!! My friends and I have a running joke about it. BTW, it goes: "With Judy, Susan and Dawn... Rick and Dave and Craig and Ben..." :D:D

BTW... I must retract my comment about WIS having all the babes. WLTX has Natasha Curry -- Columbia newsbabe du jour.

I dont really watch Columbia news too often since the signal is best reached at night time (coming from Pinehurst or Asheboro NC) if Roanoke/Virignia Beach markets do not interfere:

1. WIS. The channel i can get most often and does have a good newscast. Devotes to SC very well

2. WLTX: dont watch it quite often but its not too shabby

3. WOLO and WACH: seen very few newscast, i rank them 3rd because i dont know much

Where are you located? Pinehurst is way up there. I'm suprised a Columbia signal could make it that far.

WIS is achievable along some NC border counties in Richmond, Anson and Union Counties. Certainly at night time, if the atmospheric conditions favor the south and even the east, WIS will come in pretty clear from southern Moore County where im from. This summer (2004), at my girlfriends apartment in Asheboro, Randolph County (15 miles SE of High Point, 25 miles S of Greensboro), we'll get WIS pretty clear up there too if WSLS 10 from Roanoke dosent interfere. Ive even recieved WSPA 7 from Greenville, SC in Asheboro! As well as WDBJ 7 from Roanoke and sometimes WITN 7 from Greenville, NC. Sometimes we wont get WRAL from Raleigh (big powerhouse i think), we'll get WCYB 5 from the Tri Cities in TN instead (primarly morning hours).

Enough TV talk, here are my ratings for the Midlands.

WIS is #1 because thats what ive watched the most. Represents SC very well

WLTX sometimes reaches Moore County, there #2

WACH is last, dont see them much often

WOLO was not too appealing to me.

Wow, thats along way. I wonder why I can't get WIS at home? I have never been able to get any stations from that far off.

Are you a gelding now? She is famously difficult. I always thought her on air persona was really her..but was recently told it's exactly the opposite.

I see Ainsley Earhardt is moving to Texas. Guess it's back to Hannah and Craig now in the morning.

She gave my friend the finger, and his dad, so I believe you.
