Morning Mystery Crew

Tuning in to Channel 3's morning newscast, we're never quite sure who we're going to see. Perhaps we're imagining it, but it seems that at least once a week, anchor Mary Williams (or, as she pronounces it, "Wee-yums") is MIA. Likewise, KMTV seems to play roulette when it comes to filling the morning weather chair. Friday, for example, we were (pleasantly) surprised to find our favorite pair o' SarahsSimmons and Walters—sitting in for Williams and meteorologist Charles Thongklin.

Adding to the confusion is the fact that there seems to be no consistent sub for Williams. Sometimes it's Simmons, but on other occasions, you'll find Michelle Bandur or Mary Nelson sitting in. There's no discernible pattern. If you're trying to build an audience, leaving viewers wondering who's gonna show up every morning isn't a very good idea, especially when neither 6 nor 7 ever seem to insert new faces into the morning mix.
