Re: Omaha Eppley Airfield

What I'm hoping for is that Southwest starts nonstops into Houston Hobby. It's much closer to my client in Houston and the airport is far more laid back and actually kind of Eppley-ish, in ambiance, convenience, and lack of hassle that is, not the way it looks, which is more "V" like and ...

What does "grandfathered" mean?

Re: Omaha Local News Channels

The nice thing about Scott, was that while she was also not a real meterologist, she was rather intelligent and had more gravitas on the air. She married into the Manheim Steamroller group (Chip Davis) and did his cover art for his best work (Fresh Aire 3). She is also in the cover. Divorced Chip D...

I thought she was cute, and as good a newsreader as anyone else (take that how you will...) Ted Brockman went out of her way to slate her at every opportunity, though.

Re: M's Pub

I was thinking what if this had happened four hours later when everyone is down there clubbing or going to dinner. Also, if this had been a new build there would have been a lot more glass involved.

Re: Omaha Local News Channels

Jennifer Zeppelin is the new WX person, making her Channel Third's fifth meteorologist. Since I like to pretend I'm a stormchaser, I follow the media outlets in Tornado Alley and I'm familiar with her. She started on the 4PM show Friday and she'll be just fine.

Re: Omaha Local News Channels

I can't tell you how much I absolutely hate the "selfie live report". Professional news outlets should have tripods that keep the camera still and not all this sea-sick selfie |expletive|... Like almost everything in life, being first doesn't mean anything if you aren't putting your best ...

Re: Southport, behind Alamo and Cabela's...

'Preciate it! I knew it had to be something mundane, since Channel Third wasn't at Cabela's buying waders then doing a remote from the pit :-)

I haven't seen a pit steaming in a while, but that could be something as simple as washing out a storm sewer or testing a hydrant.

Thanks!

Before Erin, there was Lauren Squires. Same shtick. I blame management for encouraging this.

All of 6's cub reporters are enamored with props. Shefte is hardly the worst, Erin Murray is terrible with them and Moffitt is right up there, too.
