[QUOTE=foxeng;31241466]Some people change news stations with the change of anchors. Many times content or presentation have little to do with it, unfortunately. QUOTE]
I still watch some locals news on WSOC. In fact I watch "some" of all of the local news stations. But about a year ago, I abandoned ABC News for one reason alone - meteoroligist Ginger Zee. I want someone more experienced to be the head weather person, and feel they elevated her too quickly after Sam Champion's departure to The Weather Channel.
Now I watch Scott Pelley at 6:30 on WBTV, and was glad to see that his ratings spiked here in Charlotte (per the link above) in the most recent period.
I also like CBS News in the morning. They have found a nitch, in viewers who are not looking for "The Chew" type levity and frivolity in a morning newscast, but rather want news treated seriously.
