Viewers are a little persnickety about what they think local news should and should not cover.
Unfortunately, if you don’t please them, your ratings could suffer. They hold on to the mantra “The customer is always right” closer than a Klansman and his tighty-whities. They bicker about fashion on the anchors, general assignments for beat reporters, and meteorologists getting out of shape over heavy rain. You can’t please them all the time because they can be irrational.
And then came WENY-TV and its interruption of the World Cup final for a weather report proving why they may have a point.
