HDTV Ugly Stick?


Check out this article on the effects of HDTV on various stars' appearances. Some look better, it says, but in other cases, the increased clarity reveals some scary features on famous faces. Our question, of course, is what it does to local personalities. (Insert a name and shudder here.)

I am not looking forward to seeing the likes of Deb Ward or Travis Justice in high def. I don't know if their ratings can drop any lower but if they can, HDTV will do it for KMTV.

On the positive side, however, clearer views of Mary Nelson and Sarah Walters might balance things out nicely.

I'll take the other pair of KM3 Mary and Sarah's - Williams and Simmons. BTW, will HD do anything to once and for all clear up the annoying lilt of Kathy Sarantos-Niver. Just once I'd like to hear the old anvil drop on her when she finishes her "I'm Cathy Sarantos-Niver"...

Not to worry about seeing Travis Justice or any of the rest of the "B" teamers in HD. KMTV wants COX to pay them to broadcast in HD, whereas WOWT and KETV let COX broadcast HD at no charge. Only thing worse than Justice in HD is Justice in widescreen. Wait, we get that with a regular tv.
