Your Wednesday Morning News Update

Posted By on Wed, Oct 11, 2006 at 9:01 AM

-- Russell Pearce has done it again!

-- KOLD has named a new female anchor. According to this not-so-live, yet somewhat local and late-breaking, press release:

KOLD NEWS 13 COMBS NATION FOR NEW ANCHOR, BEST CHOICE ALREADY ON PAYROLL

Familiar KOLD NEWS 13 THIS MORNING anchor Heather Rowe promoted to 6:00PM and 10:00PM anchor, Monday, October 9. “We searched the country and found the best talent right in our own backyard,” said Michelle Germano, KOLD NEWS 13 News Director. KOLD NEWS 13 General Manager Jim Arnold proudly adds, “We looked at hundreds of candidates initially from as far away as Boston, Miami, and Portland (Oregon). The search for this position was unprecedented in KOLD NEWS 13 history.”  Germano shared the news with the entire KOLD NEWS 13 staff Monday afternoon. Two rounds of applause and cheers followed.  “I’m very excited to join the evening news team,” beamed Rowe.

-- And finally, the Star, under the header of "Desert Whispers: Observations About Southern Arizona," has taken Barbra Streisand to task for bitching out hecklers. OK then. WHAT does this have to do with Southern Arizona, and who gives a rat's ass anyway? I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Our morning daily's opinion page is one of the worst in the country. And the community's suffering for it.
