On a related note; what happened to Fox 42 news at nine? I hate everything about it now, they changed everything from set the anchors and it's just awful. The woman is annoying who wears 5lbs of makeup and the man is a bore. I stopped watching it which is a shame since I liked the news at nine.
The anchors and broadcast have been outsourced to Davenport, IA. Only the reporters remain in Omaha.

Need I mention Bill Randby's "Paint it red...Baybeeee".... Vomit in mouth...

Words cannot adequately describe how much I dislike channel 7. Horrible, horrible, horrible.


OMG that was so funny!!! I happen to LOVE KETV and despise WOWT, but I truly thought your post was hilarious! lol

Outsourced to Davenport. Wow, and i thought some of our anchors/reporters are bad, the ones they have are horrible. That's no improvement, I'm sure ratings have fallen.

I have to say. . I'm watching KETV right now. . They led off with sports to relive the miserable Husker game. By the way. . Their sports guy has a terribly annoying voice and if that's not enough, he's so loud I can hear him when the TV is on mute. He needs to calm the heck down.

Now that sports is over, they are onto the news. Which is. .wait for it.. .. More game coverage. What a nightmare!

The day these guys keep a sportscast straight will be amazing. . When they have to deal with more than 1 team at a time (The Huskers or Nighthawks) they screw it all up. When they do the High School games, they don't have a chance. They dispatch all 3 bozos which is a recipe for disaster.

I also want to mention that when you show scores. You put the visitors first, and the home team second. So that the score would be like Texas at Nebraska for instance. Visitor first. They prefer to list the teams (if they even get the right team) in random order. Sometimes they get it right, but the randomness tells me that is dumb luck.

And back to more sports. . So 15 minutes of sports. 5 minutes of news, 5 minutes of weather. . and back to more sports. . I'd turn on Sportscenter if I wanted this much sports. Plus the people would be less annoying.
