Debbie Castellano signs off at WSVN by admin | Jun 26, 2014 | advertising, Business News, People News, television | 1 comment After 20-something years at WSVN, Local Sales Manager Debbie Castellano signed off. 1 Comment Emmanuel on September 30, 2015 at 9:52 am Exactly.7News, since the 90s had a lot of respect for being a talibod. Sure, Mr. Burns, I mean Ed Ansin, has a lot of courage for being one of the few Mom-and-pop owned TV stations in the country, while the others 6, 10 and 4/33 and 39 are owned by mega-conglomerates.But the key issue is about why he’s upset that his station’s ratings are sagging shortly after the people meters were implemented. Would he consider that before, people would just write Channel 7 since they didn’t know what other station they were watching, but now with people meters, they don’t have to say it?And of course, Idol.Sure, Idol is a hit show, but looking at the ratings recently, it’s falling flat, considering with the new 4th Judge, who is the cousin Oliver of reality TV!!!That may add to the factor, and of course the bigger factor is, why would we want to waste 3 hours (4:00 to 7:00) watching the same stories with no updates, when we can go online and get the same stories and move on?I’ll admit it, I don’t watch as much TV as I used to, especially when it comes to local news. And it’s not just 7, it’s 6, 10 post-Dwight Lauderdale. I mean, predominately half of the anchor teams in South Florida was under Ansin’s watch. Julia Yarbough, Laurie Jennings, Charles Perez, the only two anchors I can think of that wasn’t tainted by the blood of Ansin, is Antonio Mora and Shannon Hori. My family watches WFOR, so you tell me. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
