Last week’s poll asked your preference on how that paper on a toilet paper roll should be oriented and the results were, well, shocking. I never expected there to be quite the disparity between over and under but apparently most people seriously feel that it’s absolutely necessary for it to be over. Me? I’m still in the “I don’t care camp” although I did notice that the upstairs bathroom’s roll is over and it’s a real pain to use. I might go back to under and just stick with that.
On to this week: back in January I asked about your favorite local radio station. Well, the natural followup to that would be what is your favorite local TV station? While I personally do not pay the slightest bit of attention to the particular news station that is on, as I don’t generally watch local TV news, I know that it’s a hot topic with people even believing that some news anchors are better than others.
Now, even though I don’t watch local TV news I do know of some of the big names such as Jason DeRusha, Don Shelby, and Robyne Robinson–two of which I know about solely because they’ve been in the local media lately due to both of them leaving. The reason I know of Jason DeRusha is because of his prolific social media usage, his posts on this site, and most recently his interviewing of me for another one of his local blog ventures.
So, even though I guess I’d vote WCCO, it would really only be because I know of Jason DeRusha and not for any other good reason. It’s not like I remember watching any particular local TV news aside from my lame analysis of how they might be spending too much time on things other than what the FCC mandates as important.
Even though I don’t really watch TV news I am sure many of you do. If you do what is your favorite local news station? Please vote on the poll over there on the sidebar and then comment on with why you chose what you did.
