Upgrade

An alert reader informs us that the work on the SuxNews set is being done in preparation for the station's plan to go HD with local programming in time for the November sweeps.

Seeing some of the SuxNews team do their jobs badly in HD may be more than most viewers can stomach. For instance, will we be able to see the spit fly out of Jimmy Thiedlecki's mouth as he lisps his way through the morning drivel? Or will the glue holding down J-Pa's toupée be visible? And don't even get us started on weatherguesser Seabiscuit Rich.

Stay tuned.

Don't know why they didn't make the preparations for HD last year when they remodeled.

Don't forget HD will also make the misspelled overlays look sharper.

Since channel 7 is still in the 90s with analog production, it looks like KMTV with their widescreen newscast is the only halfway decent operation we have here. Even in HD, it will be too painful to watch 6 News.

It won't be very often that someone says "...it looks like KMTV with their widescreen newscast is the only halfway decent operation we have here."

Which reflects on the sorry state of TV news in Omaha.
