Re: “Media Watch

Sonu Wasu left because the news organization at 13 is half assed and the pay is terrible. New "reporters" get a barely livable wage. It's exploitation. No wonder so many do 2 years and bail.

Re: “Media Watch

OK, expect to get hammered for this, but am I the only one who is sick to death of the eternal interruption of normal programming during the NCAA "March Madness" madness? Frankly, there needs to be an alternative channel for CBS broadcasting while this nonsense is going on. Yes, I am a U of A alum. No, I don't care about the NCAA basketball insanity!

Re: “Media Watch

Speaking of KOLD, what happened to Christine Pae and Carissa Planalp, neither of whom have been on air for some weeks?

Re: “Media Watch

Johnny has never commented on the new (overdone) KOLD graphics and the seeming abandonment of "Tucson News Now" by Channel 13.

Here's a teaser Will Shortz could offer for the Sunday Puzzle:

How many new words can you make from the letters in "Sonu Wasu" and "Teya Vitu" ?

I can't wait for the other story swirling around UA hoops to bubble up...

Re: “Media Watch

Bill Walton blasted Miller on the ESPN 2 game broadcast. Do you think Miller and Jeremy Sharpe would try to threaten and bully ESPN? Ha!

UA Athletics has been bullying local reporters for years.

Good for KVOA for standing up for themselves.

Re: “Media Watch

He's lucky (Miller) he didn't get punched in the mouth. The guy looks like he needs psychological help.
I hope the refs start giving him "T's" for being on the court so much.

Ruthie...What ? Did he have a problem cashing his paycheck. Too many zeros ?

Re: “Media Watch

We might also have no concept of the extreme pressure he has been under this past 8 weeks. How about a little compassion?

Miller will never reach the heights of Coach Olsen in championships or class.

Re: “Media Watch

It proves that compensation and professionalism are mutually exclusive concepts.

For a coach who makes an insane amount of money per year to 1) exhibit unprofessional behavior toward his player during a game and 2) treat the media in an unprofessional way during a news conference is ludicrous.

It's not as though the reporter stuck a GoPro in the locker room and captured the coach's nefarious behavior; the reporter was doing his job.

Miller is not the only coach who considers himself above reproach. Remember how RichRod was heard calling the media "cockroaches" ???

They are a pair of $3 million dollar per year prima donnas ....

Re: “Media Watch

Calling one of your players an MF'er is beyond normal coaching discipline. That's an incredibly personal insult and one that should be below a good coach's standards.

Re: “Media Watch

The school should be thankful they are the only game in town. The Sports (dis)Information Department has been the big bully to nearly every tv station. Big fish in a small pond situation suits this school very well

Re: “Media Watch

It was the University that made the media a "part of the story" in this case, DavidW.

It is the local media's job to cover the UA, not their rear end.

That exchange between "Zeus" & his coach was a legitimate news item.

Happens all the time and , frankly, No big deal UNTIL the UA Athletic Department and their head coach MAKE it a big deal by reacting with threats from officials and clearly childish behavior from their coach, who should/does know better.

The UA Athletic Department has egg on it's face over this, and so does Coach Miller.

They should both apologize, publicly.

Re: “Media Watch

Is it always necessary for the media to attempt to be part of the story? We don't need another Greg Hansen/ Lute Olson pissing contest. Cover the game. Show the box score.
