OK, my prvious post sort-of went off base somehow regarding my opinion of te sound quality of WXII's 6 PM local newscast. I did not mean it as a criticism of Laney Pope's ability, it was meant to be a judgement regarding the poor audio quality.
WXII's sound quality is much worse than WGHP or WFMY. There just seems to be more crosstalk between open mikes, echoes and thin sounds. Part of it is because offscreen microphones are not muted. Part of it is poor equalization. Part of it is improper microphone positioning. I don't know if it's because the newscast's normal sound engineer is inexperienced or just doesn't care. The strange thing is their remote audio normally sounds better than their in-studio sound.
