Don't have a TV so I won't vote, but I was curious about this Ryan kid so I googled him and the first picture that came up was him wearing a tight black t-shirt covered in glitter and tight bell bottom jeans. I don't think there is any question about which way he swings! I've heard of metrosexuals, but that glitter is just a little too fabulous!

I like Mindi and Joe S. I have never seen such a goofy meterologist till moving here. I applaud his devotion to St. Joseph's. I was sorry to hear the Mindi is leaving broadcasting for other endevors. I beleive her last newscast will be on 1/26. She stated that the waking up at 2:15 am got old fast.

We kind of like to poke fun at Ryan Leckeylive. Have you noticed that is how he is always introduced? "And now with breaking news in the WNEP news room, here's Ryan Leckeylive." There is rarely a pause between Leckey and live.

Just an observation!

I hadn't heard that about Mindi - they've stated on the morning newscast that she's on maternity leave (or as someone put it on 16's Talkback, the "Supon Sabbatical"! Too funny...)

There's a statement on Talkback 16 Online today from "From WNEP.COM" that states she is just on maternity leave. She and her husband just moved here from Connecticut for her career; it would be odd for her to just quit cold turkey after moving here.

Joe Snedeker Because he's funny and entertains me.

Tom Clark because he wears funny hats and clothes and tells the weather straight up

Tom Williams because... I'm not sure why LOL. He'd kind of pompous yet nice.

Finally Ryan Leckey because he reminds of how I expect SWB's personailty to be. I every time I see him I think he resembles him
OOPS, My mistake sorry. My Tom Williams is actually Mike Lewis.

I agree. Leckey is way too dramatic. He reminds me of Kyle Smoyer was also overly dramatic.

I still think Dave Pingalore was MUCH more irritating to many more people than Ryan Leckey could ever hope to be. I mean going by "Ping" as your nickname? It sounds kind of like a Panda or something!

YES!! I was extremely glad to see Ping go and Coles take his place. They kept passing over Coles for years for the big spot. Coles earned that position.

When Ping came on, I would always switch channels. He was very annoying.
