Fox 21's new morning news
Anyone have some thoughts on KXRM/Channel 21's new morning news? I caught the last half-hour (weekends have a way of wiping my memory clear, leaving me a tabula rasa on Monday mornings).
From what I saw, Hynes and Brookbank seemed to be a good pair. Tim Elbertson, the new meteorologist, has a likable presence, but... he's a big guy and on TV he looked like the Incredible Hulk. They're going to have to dig a trench next to the desk to put him in -- right now he looks like he's going to reach over and crush the puny anchors with his massive hands.
Tim seemed like a really funny guy when I stopped by the station the other day, so he should offer a lighter take on the weather than we get from Marty V, Craig and Brandon B.
Obviously, I only saw the lightest part of the newscast. Seemed OK for the first time out -- the wire stories they were using felt a little thrown together. I'll write myself a note to watch the whole shebang tomorrow.
I think there's a niche out there for Fox for viewers who prefer local news after 7. We'll just have to see if they can find it.
