Mailbag: Aging Spokane Newscasters

CDADave: Mark Peterson falls on his face every day, trying to be humorous. Mark is basically TV's idea of KVNI's "Morning show" ... And I tuned in KREM the other day ... we all know Charles (Rowe) is "getting up there", and Nadine's (Woodward) starting to age as well. They've both been there FOREVER. Maybe KREM actually needs all the "anti-wrinkle tricks" it can get.

DFO: Although I'm not a major local TV news watcher, I'd say you could add others to your list. Randy Shaw. Debra Wilde. Sunshine Shelly. How do you know when a local personality has become too long in tooth? I, for one, am happy that age isn't a critical issue for print journalists. Otherwise, at 56, I'd be wondering when management was going to put me out to pasture.
