WBBM 10pm Anchor Promo

Rob and Dianne! Dianne and Rob!

WCBS Doppler 2 Million

If you've never seen this - you should. It is a parody of Million Dollar Baby and features a very funny impression of Sam Champion.

Turning the Tables on News

It is interesting to see when a station trys to steal another's thunder. I've never been part of doing it - only part of the station that was being copied. An interesting, very aggressive sweeps tactic.

What do you think? All's fair in love and (sweeps) war? or that's too sleezy, even for you?
