  1. I suggest Scott Eby introduce himself to Bob Kelly ASAP and remind him that Kate is his wife.

    Between Kate and EVT, expect Bobby to make mistakes while his mind wanders….

  2. Wacky — Your comment is somewhat offensive. If you don’t something constructive or important to say just go away. Get a real job other than waiting for Laura to post so that you can rant about people who is making a valuable contribution to society.

  3. What does this mean for Carol Erickson?

  4. Jim – Chill out. I could get on your case for horrible grammar but I wont. It is common knowledge that Kelly is a skirt chaser. Ask his ex-wife. Otherwise, just relax pal. Nobody got stung by a poisonous rattlesnake here.

  5. Jim, no offense but the WJ is a Hall of Famer. As he said this is supposed to be fun, not world peace.

  6. Connected — Thanks, as always, for the kind words. Obviously Jim got a little hot under his collar about Bobby Kelly. No harm no foul 🙂

  7. Couldn’t they find a hotter babe?

  8. she is on the cheap! It must be the money!

  9. L.Undeas – Carol Erickson will still do weekends, fill-in work, and her animal interest pieces. She once told me that she loved her schedule and had hoped she could keep it. I read somewhere they will start Saturday a.m. newscast again, so I’d imagine she does Saturday and Sunday mornings plus whatever comes up, while Justin Drabick does weekend evenings plus whatever else comes up.

    • Carol has always said she prefers the weekends. I remember back in 2002 or
      03 when the weekday weathercaster was let go his name was John can’t
      remember the last name. Carol filled in and when the next metereologist
      was hired she remarked how happy she was to be back on the weekend.
      She was doing news and weather at that time on weekend mornings.
      People may forget but Carol has also anchored newscasts at various
      times throughout her career. She is one of the unsung heroes of the
      broadcast media in Philadelphia.


  10. Agree with Ed — Carol Erickson is a classy woman. Always puts others ahead of herself. And has done some great charity work for animal causes.
