Seven paragraphs this week. Is that ALL?
Sierra Vista Herald called out for poor-taste feature:
Several years ago I was a student with the U of A Journalism department and remember several of the gay students complaining about Chuck's unwanted passes at them in various bars near campus. Maybe the queen of weather has gotten himself mixed up with something stronger than he can handle. I am not judging here, just more speculation, which seems to be what Tucson journalism is all about.
Guarino could KILL someone as a drunk driver, Vazquez is a white collar 'criminal.'
Anyone need details about DUI, just ask my partner was the VICTIM of a drunk driver in 1972 and lives with it EVERY DAY.
KVOA is a joke anyway.
You can read about Chuck George's June 2011 extreme-extreme DUI on a state court website:
Case number M-1041-TR-10071180
Miraculously the charge was dismissed.
When was Jackie Kain let go? Need a date, dude.
Daniel Berk needs to lose about 50 pounds, minimum. Saw him "covering" (mostly viewing Twitter, Facebook and cruising other internet sites instead of heads-up watching) a game once and... wow. Plumbers grin very visible. Just sayin'.
Mishell is super talented and hilarious!
Steve Shadley left AZPM not long ago. Heard he may have been pushed out.
Seriously?: Yes, this is where last week's column resides, but this week's column (4/11) is where it's supposed to be under Currents/Media Watch on the navbar above, or here: http://www.tucsonweekly.com/tucson/media-w…
Still last week's column.
Last week's column still posted.
@Circle D - its not it's
Executive hyper-control of reader content will always have a stifling effect on news consumption. Tucson Weekly has continued to have the attraction it has by catering the local stories to it's readers about it's readers - and respecting them by giving a voice to all in the comments section. The news outlets, in print or online, that respect reader appetite over corporate control will be the ones that remain attractive and viable to consumers.
Ok, don't want to be tethered to a cell or iPad or whatever. So, how about some old fashioned, objective JOURNALISM that they're allegedly teaching at at least two of our state universities? I don't need to hear a beep to enlighten me that some "breaking news" is waiting for me to look at it....and it's usually pap or crap. There is absolutely nothing wrong with cutting the umbillical cord to "instant" information, unless it's truly the end of the world, and then, we'll probably be able to figure that out before the cell/iPad/computer signal dies.
I can't stand this woman and now listen to Pandora in the morning. She tries to hard to be funny and constantly reminds listeners that she is a model, actress and whatever. That is why she was working in a clothing store and now on the radio. She is another left-wing California nut job.....
I hope that 20 years from now, Jeffries will provide the call for his own retirement ceremony, break for commercial, and then offer some analysis. But for now, Brian, please retire "caught and dropped" as a synonym for "incompletion." If a ball is caught AND dropped, it's a fumble.
Brian, you deserve the induction and the profiles. You were great to work with back in the 80's, you are wonderful to listen to now, and it's clear you're still a great person.
And this just up on Twitter:
KVOA News 4 Tucson @KVOA
A 2-year-old was saved just in time after falling in a #Tucson pool today. Good tips from Cpt. Barrett Baker: http://www1.kvoa.com/news/2-year-old-saved… …
If you'd like to read more about Randy (and see some videos), there are a number of links at the end of my "Farewell, Randy..."message on the Tucson Murals Project blog:
Peace to Randy and his family.
The arcticle reminds me that 1997 was kind of the start of an interesting era and important in Tucson TV. Many new faces came into town that year and in the next few years as competition heated up at KOLD & KGUN & KVOA. Garsee, Pickel, Grisham, George, Huttner, Carr, McCall, MacNamara, Marries, Kilbury to name a few.
Just a Reader, Schuster covered that change in the Feb. 28 edition of "Media Watch":
