  1. Hi! This layout looks really nice, but your forgot to list WLRN. Congratulations to Kirk Wade and Nicole Linsalata!

  2. WTVJ was lowest on totem pole again only winning 1 of 13. You can’t look at their 5:30 news
    anchor or listen to her speech impediment. How far can they fall before wiseing up.

  3. This is all you need to know about this sham:

    Newscast – Morning – Larger Markets
    CBS4 This Morning
    Alex Hernandez, Christina Lemus, Keith Coll, Rhiannon Ally, Michele Gillen,
    Marybel Rodriguez, Joseph Escobar
    WFOR-TV, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, FL

    Look, people love giving themselves awards, the only award that really matters is the viewership award..kinda like a website, you can get all the awards you want but the only thing that really counts is unique visitors and even more more important is conversion
