Yeah, and they use them a lot more effectively than they used to.

Naw; we're 400 miles from Miami.

In my market, it's ABC Action News (a neat way of not calling yourself
Channel 28, since both markets' cable systems have you on channel 11
for the obvlivious raisins) that has the overly sensational newscast.

I stick with WFLA's Bob Hite, who was the anchor when I got here in
'81, and is just as nice a guy off camera as he is on.

Unlike his 5a/5p counterpart, Bill Ratliff, who is reputed to be a cast
iron son of a bitch when the tally light goes out.
