WKMG Orlando

This is from my former competitor in Orlando. They do some pretty good work. Here is some of the good(and the bad) from this Post Newsweek station:

I really like this promo... nicely done. It does reminds me of a promo I did for the same exact subject - back in 1996.

I didn't like this one. Its so... FORCED. Scripted. I like the idea of two people talking about a story - but when its filled with promo language, it just doesn't work for me. I will say though that Pippitone has been awesome on this story though -- I still follow it from here. One hell of a story and his reporting has been great.

Count the cliches! 'Nuff said.
