I grew up with WWL and it had some great reporters and programs at one time. I miss Nash Roberts.


It is horrible now.

It’s hard to remember a time now when it wasn’t horrible

What's something in NOLA that has gotten better with time?

Didn't all of the talent leave for Fox 8 after Benson bought Fox 8?

This is (more than) a bit cringy.

Unless you like the aromatic roux of Old Spice mixed with old man dander.

How about “I wish there was another version of Nash.”?

That Ms. Crawford could get it.



But in general, all local news has gone to shite.

The only people that left WWL to go to Fox were Lee Zurik, Juan Kincaid, David Bernard and Bruce Katz.

Snell also. But that was before the Benson purchase.

Meg Gatto was poached from WGNO. I am amazed how that station is still in business.

I think a problem with WWL is it has become a stepping stone to something else, where it used to be a rock for lifers. Only lifer I can imagine staying is Chris Frankiin. Tom Truong was good but he left to do his podcast and investigations on his own. His former partner (a woman who was great) left after a year.

Eleanor Tibone in the next to go.

That was a lot of their established/upcoming talent around that time.

Katie Moore is good. People generally either love or hate Cherisse Gibson, but she is good. It’s the B-teamers who are lacking.

The quality of on-air personalities in local media nationwide seems to be in decline. I don’t think it pays much and the hours suck.

All local news is terrible. It’s not just a Nola thing.

I used to fall asleep to track driving music when I was a kid. Now it's Dave Ramsey all night.

I also grew up watching it back in the day of Nash Roberts, Jim Metcalf, and others. I quit watching it 10 years ago.
