A Familiar Face Back on Memphis TV & I’m Taken to Task for NOT Watching Local TV News
I always enjoy touching base with my former co-workers. Okay, I enjoy touching base with MOST of my former co-workers. Reconnecting with a former compadre from Southeast MO has led to other reconnects and so on and so forth. I most recently heard from Amy Spears/Speropoulos who used to be an anchor/reporter at WREG. Amy tells me that as of Monday morning, she will be the new morning reporter for WMC. AS and her husband had left the Memphis area a couple years ago and have since moved back. I always enjoyed working with AS and always thought she did a great job on the air. Viewers liked her as well when she was DOTR and I think they’ll like her just as much OOU. (Over on Union). I know at one time, the thought of someone leaving WREG to go to work at WMC was enough to send some managers into a coniption as that was considered the ultimate slap in the face. There was a regular effort to demonize WMC as the “evil-doers”. I still chuckle at that. Anyway, congrats to Amy.
I was chided recently because I do not watch local TV news. The person who chided me about it: my lovely and talented bride. She told me that I should start watching local TV news again, just so I would know who the on-air folks are. I guess I should also do that so I can see if anyone has renamed/rebranded their weather coverage or their consumer reporting coverage. So, I will attempt to see what I’ve been missing. I’ll will keep you posted.
