Jeff Smith, Joe Nugent out at WTVG

A place to go for those of you who wish to discuss happenings in OH, IN, IL, WI, and Ontario. OSU sucks, by the way.

Nuge was alright, but good riddance to Smith. Him and Sashem couldn't go 2 minutes without giggling at something and he would literally stumble over reading "Los Angeles" off the prompter.

Good riddance for Jeff. Was soooooo tired of seeing him and his "Greesy Formula" dyed hair. Jeff showed us that they still do make that product. Plus, you never tell him anything that you do not want told to anyone.

As for Joe... sad day for him. Someone will pick him up, if he wants to continue in TV. BCSN/TV19 Sports One? WTOL? He's not in South Bend, so 24 could care less.

Now if we can get Sashem to stop looking up and off the camera. Very annoying, when someone does not appear to look you in the eye, when presenting news. The networks never do this. Yet, Mel seems to let it go on and on.

I fear Professor Tony will anchor, leaving WTOL with another viewer. I need info, not tacky jokes.


Something to think about- Just because I point out that you cannot do your job properly and appropriately, does not mean that anyone is calling you a bad person. However, you tell the world that you are a bad person by denying that you cannot do your job.

Actually Joe tweeted that he got a job in Omaha. Bigger market, good for him.

Glad Joe got top dog in Omaha- good for him. Jeff forgot to take Tony Geftos out the door with him though.

When I'd watch Tony and Christina Williams on the weekends, Christina often looked like she wanted to slap him lol

Speaking as a sexist pig, Christina has been looking exceptionally decent on air since having her baby, and she does an excellent job of delivering the weekend news too.

She could touch up her makeup, she is very blotchy and sun damaged. Lotsa freckles.

I mean, having been stuck on the weekends for a decade while people like Kristi Leigh and Melissa Spraytan Andrews get lead weekday anchor jobs in this market I don't blame her for not putting a ton of effort into her makeup.

I actually do like Jeff and have heard is a good guy. Judging from what I read in the article, he might not have left on the best of terms. Good luck to where he lands next. Joe was very good too and Working in Omaha has to be an upgrade for him.

I can attest that Sashem was the nicer of the 2- hands down.

You also have to remember, Christina could have gotten full time anywhere. However, she chose to only do weekends and fill in. Kinda like the McDonald's worker, who has to put up with abusive bosses, yet takes it and complains. Everyone has a way out, should they choose it.
