Former WACH Anchor Not Happy About Station Hiring Beauty Queen as Anchor

boyce_croppedMike Woolfolk, a former anchor for Columbia, SC, FOX affiliate WACH, had some things to say about his old station’s hiring of a former beauty queen with no formal journalism experience.

Woolfolk, who was an anchor at WACH from 1996 until 2010, wrote a response to an article in local weekly paper Free Times titled “The Camera Loves Her” which talks about the station hiring Bree Boyce as co-anchor of the 10:00 p.m. news.

“I was astounded when I first heard of this move by WACH-TV, my former employer, and I remain astounded to this day,” Woolfolk said on his blog.

“Students, forget about all that crap your college professors and other professionals who visited your classes told you about “paying your dues” or “having to cut your teeth in Podunkville, USA” before you get the chance to anchor a newscast in a place like Columbia, or better.  Don’t worry about learning the craft or gaining experience.  Just go out and do something that garners you major attention because those are the people television station general managers favor for anchor slots— one of the most high profile and significantly important jobs in the newsroom– over formally trained and experienced journalists.” Read more
