The local papers (& columnists) did a number on Brad when he was in town
.  Most of the reason was that he worked for 'Channel 7'...which at the
time was much maligned
by the papers as well.  

I think I remember one columnist referring to him as "the anchor with
the best 'hair'"...referring to his somewhat modern cut....much
different that the 'nerd' cuts that many 'old-fogey' anchors at the time

Channel 7 tried to give the newscast a shot of news integrity by adding
John Henning as co-anchor (Now at Channel 4)....  To me they looked like
"father and son"...rather than colleagues.

Just my $.02
