Listening to WINS today and heard several mispronounced words including my favorite cringe of all time NUKE-KU-LER, the anchor babe mispronounced
it three times in one story. The broadcast industry once had high standards, now even companies like CBS and their programmers pay zero
attention to this type of error, they go on and on. The great legends of CBS News must be turning in their graves.
You hear this stuff from PBS all the way down to local operations. When someone comes into a market and they no longer instructed
about local pronunciations. This was a must years ago, now it is just another very common embarrassment for all concerned.
