Re: where are the proofers???

First the new announcer was taught to say "double-you".  Then he (or she)
learned that the word was "Nyouze" not "Nooz" and for some reason thought that
Noon should therefore be pronounced Nyoon.  Could I have a dime each time I
have heard, "Now, the Nyouze at Nyoon"?
