Bits

• Sportsguy Matt Schick, who's cutting back on his involvement at KETV, will be hosting a daily sportstalk show on 1620/The Zone, according to promos running on the ESPN radio affiliate.

The show is being called "Schick and Nick," to account for co-host Nick Bahe's presence. Bahe is a former Creighton basketball player.

• If you have the stomach, check out Channel 3rd's 10 p.m. newscast to get a look at sports director Travis Justice, who has inexplicably shaved his head. He looks a little like actor Gavin McLeod, a.k.a. Captain Stuebing on The Love Boat, only without all the charisma.

Off topic, but does anyone else see something wrong with the last paragraph of this world herald story?

Do you mean that the girl was taken to the hospital "In critical condition as a precaution". I guess normally they let the critically injured patients go on home.

But back to Schick. Maybe I'm in the minority, but I think he does a great job. And I do think he's funny. I'll miss seeing him as much on Channel 7.

By the way, whatever happened to weather guy John Campbell? Is he still on that channel? I haven't seen him in forever.

Dumb Anguish,

John Campbell left the station I think about a month ago. Don't know where he went or what he's doing, but he's bio and information is off the website now.

According to his facebook page, he moved to San Antonio to work for RackSpace, an IT company down there.

Anguish - John Campbell left the biz and moved to San Antonio, TX for another career a few months back.

Are the other media outlets resuming the use of the term "swine flu" like sux did last night?
