Re: Headline News


AT&T Digital Cable here in Salem (part of the whole Boston-North Head End), 
has been running "outdoor sports updates", which I'm certain are sponsored, 
in a "Bloomburg looking" screen format during that local part of the hour, 
which seems to be adjacent to the top of the hour.  Too bad, I enjoyed the 
human interest stuff Headline news has in that position.  Nothing like a 
network announcer having to keep from losing it while setting up a package 
on Pig calls or cow tipping.
