Media Note: Hello everyone from WBOC!

Just want to say thanks for checking in. Word from Artie is that we may have rankled some feathers a few posts down. Not that we care that much. But thanks for checking in. The note on this blog may have been the very first time anyone in management there cared about anything regarding an employee.

Hey Dickie, I hope this post is not a cryptic alert that your employer is peeved with the wired-line....

I've been trying to figure out what Dickie is talking about. He mentioned a suspension of one of the anchors a week or so ago, but never said what it was for. Dickie?

No no, my employer is not pissed about the wired. But those schlubs are or at least were. I have good enough sense to stay away from Salisbury. And if you count the more than a dozen people that have left in less than a year, so do the people who unhappily work there. From what I hear it's literally becoming hazardous to your health down there!

A “summer without Steve for WBOC” is a summer NOT SOON ENOUGH… In real life, his head is never that big, it’s BIGGER, literally. He should be in Hollywood with the great performance he displays each night. I’ve run into him at the liquor store, they aren’t that nice to each other [you figure it - they -out]. “Asking for some intelligence to eminate” [sic]? - or did you really mean “eliminate,” such as your dear, arrogant Steve, from the 6PM… Just a penny for each time he puts down the station and alleges that he’ll not sign again - heard again and again, and we’d all have a seat on the next trip to the moon; I’d gladly give up my seat to him, if it were a one-way trip. Call it what you will, but his projection clearly demonstrates the insecure bully in him… And you, with a name like “Dickie,” well you know the rest... Sincerely, YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE

Sounds like someone was playing my little drinking game this morning. Not sure what any of that means, except that Stevo is generally not considered to be a sweetheart. Won't get me to argue that point. A trip to the moon sounds nice, and again I dispute little of what you say. But my worst nightmare? What, are you proposing that all Delawareans are eligible for the same healthcare coverage as those in a state prison? Or maybe you're convincing the Governor to pass a law banning the consumption of alcohol inside any bar in Delaware to go along with the smoking ban? Aw hell, at least then I'd be able to drink AND smoke again.

Otherwise I can't figure out why the producer of the four hour made for tv special, "Behind The Scenes With Nick and Jessica" would have much interest in this little corner of the world.

Summers is viewed as an enigma to most of BOC's employees... but I can tell you, as a former employee, he's quite a simple fellow. He's more like a 5 year old who throws a fit any time he doesn't get his way.

Further, he's afraid of any new talent who graces BOC's airwaves, because that may be the next person who takes any attention away from his fat face.

Steve was sent by satan to ruin BOC's youth. The short-sighted managers at BOC give him his way most of the time, either because they CAN'T deal with him, or they're not allowed to.

Steve affects many people's lives at the station. Sometimes, he's the reason people quit or decide not to re-sign. I don't have many positive things to write about pumpkin head, because he's just not a good person. And he hides behind the "hard ass journalist" mask, just so we won't see the truly immature infant he really is.

He makes just as many mistakes as anyone else at the station. Especially when he does one of his famous "freestyles" straying from what the teleprompter says. Those moments usually lead to fact errors and plenty of angry Delmarvans.

To know him is to dislike him...

I left out the whole part about how he drools over ever 20-something girl who comes through the station. I bet his wife loves to hear about that... maybe he doesn't volunteer that information.

Some of the things he's says just to be "one of the boys," leads me to believe he's also masking a very frustrated homosexual inner being, who's dying to come out and tell the world.

But, we all know if he's too coward to admit he's just another imperfect human like the rest of us, he's obviously never going to tell the world he's an insecure, closet homo, who would rather work at a low-market televsion station to pick on kids just coming out of college. That makes him feel like more of a "Man" I guess.
