Saturday morning news… oh dear.

Good morning, Netizens…

O Lord, please spare me new news reporters at KHQ-TV! It seems like every two weeks (somewhat exaggerated, but not by much) news reporters and anchors at KHQ change, which means just as you were getting used to their brand of news on Saturday mornings, since they offer the only news available in lieu of kiddee cartoons, what you see is what you get.

The latest import, Jennifer Rohrar, seems to follow the logic that apparently rules how personnel are chosen at the station. They must not know anything about Spokane issues and news and they must have TEETH. Extra points are given if they can correctly pronounce the word Spokane.

Oh, my word. There is hardly a sentence that goes by but what Mz. Rohrar doesn’t exhibit a set of whitened monster chompers that would do an angry wolverine justice. This isn’t your typical good morning smile, no way. It is a baring of the fangs, and it takes place about every 30 seconds or when there is “dead air” time. It’s reflexive: if you don’t know what to say, simply flash your pearly whites, giggle and everything will be okay.

What is unfortunate is that I cannot recall who preceded Mz. Rohrar at KHQ. I gather the folks at KHQ don’t really care about establishing long-term relationships between the studio and their audience, even on
Saturday mornings when the kiddies monopolize the television to watch cartoon shows. Otherwise why do they continue to change news anchors as if they were old socks?

Or perhaps KHQ is already atop the national trend: nobody gives a crap about mainstream news these days.
