Re: WAAF Jocks In Trouble

Nope...If you're still speaking about the "Blue Hills eruption"...It was
Channel 7....with Brad Holbrook and John Henning.

Back in the days when Channel 7 was the laughingstock of local news.
(Can U say RKO General?)

Sad to say, there are people who lost their jobs....but it probably wasn't
the "right people"....From what I remember it was some low-level staff that
took the fall....
