Btw...I'll make you a deal. I'm gonna work another 12-15 years in this business. When I am done - and if you haven't been run off this board - I will give you my name. Unless I don't. Because you're a putz
Getting pious about career achievement in "our Top 40 market" (DMA Rank #40) strikes me a bit like winning a city league 'six-foot and under' basketball tournament. Nice for what it is, but hardly meritorious of trashing the place you're having beer & pizza afterward.

pious about TV career achievement in this market is one thing...(you never bothered to go anywhere else? or failed and came back <ahem> Geha) but longevity in ANY industry is something to be acknowledged...

oh, and quacky...you're still the dumbest flaming asshole on this site...you have NO IDEA what you are talking about...in fact, you are SO consistently off base you could be consultant...

brush the cheetoh dust off your fingers and keep flippin' the remote, and yell for mom upstairs to bring you that meatloaf you've been wanting...

There was no piousness (piety? San Diegans?) in my comments Lester, nor inference of great career achievement. I hope I have misunderstood your comments, otherwise I would probably say it is Ok if you don't comment on *everything* posted on this site

Yeah, Shaner still there. Why does he always wear those dark red, brown, green and other weird colored shirts?

March has come, and Shaner remains. Good luck to all who toil this day, and in those days to come.

Shaner mentioned its his last week at Fox 17 this morning. Hoping Kelly Smith gets his spot.

Possible replacements:

1. Kelly Smith. Obvious and good choice, so 17 probably won't even consider it.
2. Kevin Craig. Passed up for multiple positions, maybe his turn? Also maybe not the best choice.
3. Rick Mecklenberg. As mentioned before, he would be a good fit, but a longshot. Is he even still in the area?
4. Anyone from 13. Based on recent hires, these are the best odds.

Thoughts?

TV Guy-- I'm sure you think you will work another "12-15 years" in the business. Let me know how that turns out for you. I'm also waiting to find out who you really are.
