While the boards have been busy comparing 6ABC’s Jamie Apody and Keith Russell, we have another sports disaster brewing – Hugh Douglas on Fox29.
For the last three Fridays, the former Eagle has been doing his version of “sportscasts.” Instead of doing the traditional highlights and scores, he is getting fed topics by the news anchor, then giving his opinion, sort of like WIP on TV.
In a way, it’s not a bad idea. Barely anybody actually gets their sports news from local newscasts these days.
But either all the sportscasts on Fox29 should be in that format, or Douglas should get his on-the-job training off the air.
