I love local TV. I love local TV because it is so very bad. As I travel around the good ol’ USA, I am always fascinated by the ridiculousness that happens on the local airways. From low quality production to uncomfortable banter between news anchors who think they are the next Regis and Kelly, it never seems to get better. I ran across two examples of the greatness of local television this week.
The first is a pretty awesome commercial. This is about as honest as you can get. The next time I am in the market for a mobile home, this is my guy. The second is the reason news anchors should never speak to each other on the broadcast. Pull a Ron Burgundy and READ the news, if not for us than for yourself.
