Shakeup at WTNH in New Haven

This deals with the shakeup of a local ABC affiliate that reports the news in CT. A few days before the blizzard two weeks ago, it was discovered one of our meteorologists was leaving WTNH for radio work on WPLR. At the time it sounded like Gil Simmons left on his own terms. Then last night it was discovered that a long standing institution known as Geoff Fox was leaving WTNH because higher up won’t renew his contract. What a bunch of hooey this is all turning out to be.

I have known Geoff Fox my whole life and I’m sure many others in the Southern CT area can vouch for the same. Isn’t it funny how many employers return the favor by giving you the “oh sorry we don’t want you anymore so fuckoff”

Geoff Fox is WTNH and it will be vastly different without him. There’s this new guy Steve Villanueva who does the weather for Matt Scott. Who the fuck is Steve Villanueva? His bio isn’t even up yet on the WTNH website. I determine he’s not even from CT. If WTNH wants to keep me as a viewer, then they must do some promoting from within in the weather department. The one who should be shitcanned is that Steve Villanueva dude. Hire Sid Starks as full time evening meterologist and move Gil Simmons to the weekends.

Oh and here’s a little tidbit on the traffic lady Terrsa LaBarbera. From a single guy standpoint she is definetely a hottie but she’s another annoying perky lady in the morning. Tom Michaels does a better job at reporting traffic.

If anyone reading this wants to do their part to save Geoff Fox’s ass, there’s a fan page that can be searched on facebook.

Some WTNH personnel follow me on twitter. If they are reading this, I suggest they forward my thoughts to WTNH and the assholes at the LIN TV Corporation.
