Boston Station Interviews Sox Fans with Vague Ideas About History and Birthdays


After the hometown Boston Red Sox clinched the World Series Wednesday night, WHDH reporter Ryan Schulteis interviewed a couple of fans who were either more than a few sheets to wind or time travelers who came to re-live the joy of a Boston World Series victory at home.

At the start of the interview not seen on the YouTube clip above, one of the young men told the Boston NBC affiliate reporter this win wasn’t the same as the last time the Sox won at home in 1918.

So Schultheis turned his attention to the young man standing next to the young old-timer,”Talk about being here for this momentous occasion. This is history!” said Schulteis. “This is history and I’ll tell you what,” said the young man. “I was not alive during 1918, obviously, and this was more than f#cking history!”

Then to keep the fun going, Schulteis returned to the first guy who told the Boston reporter, “I’ve been alive since probably 1988 and this is the best time ever because I’ve been watching the Sox since ’88 and I’ve never seen ‘em win a game six since now.” Yogi Berra anyone?

Boston Stations Break In for Whitey Bulger Trial Verdict Coverage

 

 

 

 

The fifth day of jury deliberations in the racketeering and conspiracy trial of Boston gangster James Whitey Bulger brought a guilty verdict on 33 counts which included 11 murders. Bulger was one of America’s most wanted fugitives after disappearing in 1995 until being caught in California in 2011.

Boston station’s responded quickly to the news a verdict had been reached.

FOX owned WFXT interrupted the “Ricki Lake” show at 1:33 p.m. with the news from a tweet sent by the Massachusetts US attorney’s office that said, “There is a verdict in the James Bulger case.”

ABC affiliate WCVB broke into afternoon food show “The Chew” at 1:34 p.m. with Susan Wornick.  “Good afternoon,” said Wornick. “Susan Wornick in Newscenter 5 with the news we have been waiting for now for five days, actually for more than a month. There is a verdict in the trial of James Whitey Bulger.”

Boston NBC affiliate WHDH broke into soap opera “Days of Our Lives” at 1:35 with b-roll of Bulger being escorted to the courthouse by helicopter which was voiced over by Kayna Whitworth. Whitworth then tossed to Ryan Schulteis live at the courthouse.

WBZ, Boston’s CBS owned station, broke in at 1:38 p.m. with anchors Jack Williams and Lisa Hughes who tossed to Sera Congi live at the courthouse.

 NECN cut into regular news reports anchored by Steve Aveson and Mike Nikitas at 1:38 with John Moroney outside the courtroom and Alysha Palumbo inside the courtroom.

Boston Stations Utilize Social Media to Report on Plane Collision at Logan Airport

Boston stations didn’t break into primetime programming last night to report on a plane collision at Logan International Airport but there was no shortage of coverage online as WCVB, WBZ, WHDH, and WFXT used their Twitter and Facebook accounts to update local viewers on the breaking news.

Social media proved to be an ideal platform for the news since details of the collision, involving a Delta jet and a smaller plane, emerged bit by bit and images were scarce. All four stations tweeted a breaking news update around 8:00 p.m. last night and then used Twitter and Facebook to gradually flesh out the story. Read more
