Now, now... CTV hires the finest monkeys off the street! :winkThat's a little optimistic. Try student fresh out of community college who can barely read from a teleprompter.
In this case, I was surprised they announced that Shannon Bradbury would be the new CTV Kitchener weather person. I'm reluctant to say she was 'promoted' to this role, but I digress. Honestly, I've come to expect Bell to make things worse at every opportunity, so why have a dedicated weather presenter, anyway? Some CTV stations have already resorted to this further reduction in staff by just having a single anchorperson deliver everything, on the way towards robonews.
For amusement, I looked for this "Furfy" incident that @audiofool mentioned aired on CTV London -- it's at 27 minutes into this clip.
Yep, pretty pathetic. Gotta assume/hope that Julie Atchison wouldn't stoop to that level. I'd rather have her at CTV Kitchener.
I also shake my head at: "seven day forecast brought to you by Metal Roof Outlet" -- LOL, everything has to be sponsored! Maybe somebody should start a GoFundMe campaign to sponsor hiring some better staff! :devil
