Resumé

More details on Action 3rd's new sports director, Travis Morgan can be found here.

He's coming to Omaha from Sioux Falls City, and he looks like it. (What is it with Channel 3rd and balding sports directors?)

They passed over Matt Seigel so they could get this guy?

Infinite cluelessness must be a prerequisite for running a TV station in this town.

Holy epic fail. Are you serious? I did a little You Tube search and, well...ouch.

KMEG is a Sioux City station not Sioux Falls.

I just finished watching what I believe to be his first sportscast. Wow.

I would have loved to have been at the meeting where they hired this guy. "OK, let's see if we can hire an overweight, middle-aged, bald guy. Is George Castanza available? If not, we have this guy from Sioux City..."

Seriously, what is going on with this station? They have another reporter (not sure of his name) that talks like he has a mouth full of Doritos. Another great hire for a communication company.

I saw his first show on Monday. I loved the energy. That's something Omaha hasn't seen in a while. Do you really have to be eye candy to be a sports anchor? If he's entertaining then I will watch... and so far I think he's been really good.

Steve, Brian... ARE YOU JEALOUS MUCH?!?!?! Actually, if either of you two had ANY type of character, you might just be 1/12 of a man and person that Travis Morgan IS! Travis has so much passion, enthusiasm and pride in his work. He will truly be missed in the Viewing Siouxland area. He has the BEST SPORTS DIRECTION and PASSION I have ever seen in any news cast. From San Jose, Dallas, Houston and Boston, there is truly no comparison. Omaha will love him just as much as the Viewing Audience he has recently left does! TRAVIS MORGAN, YOU DOMINATE! Hmmmm Steve, you stated he was middle-aged, balding, overweight.... WHATEVER, Travis is the total package... Maybe if you allow him to have a chance of gaining your interest before you judge him, you might actually like him! Sounds as if you two may also gain some character from him.... KNOCK THEM DEAD TRAVI... WE MISS YOU!!!

Brian, I am so glad yet not surprised that you liked him!!! Travis Morgan is absolutely amazing!!!!
As far as eye candy goes.... Travis has some serious mad eye candy skills goin on!!! Smokin!!!!!!
The best is yet to come....

eastonrn, I appreciate that you are tied to Travis (and I have to assume you are either his mother, wife, or girlfriend) and will defend him. I certainly will give him a chance. From what I've seen it has been extremely sophomoric in his approach, very mid-90s SportsCenter. There is no need to try and be clever with every...single...highlight.

Also, there will be approximately seven people that will miss him (on TV) in Sioux City. Finishing 3rd in ratings in Sioux City is like finishing behind two one-legged men in a race. No offense to those with one leg.

Steve, believe it or not, it is humanly possible for people to appreciate others talent without having a familial connection....
He does a great job!

Steve--
Being third in Sioux City is like being KMTV in Omaha. In other words, this guy is making a lateral move and will never be heard from again (except maybe car commercials or when he gets his real estate license)

Ya'll should spend your time and effort towards a good work ethic instead of bashing others.... as I stated initially.... JEALOUS MUCH?!?!?!?

Steve said...

I'm not sure why you are taking such offense to this eastonrn. It's a message board from a blog. You pretty much lost your credibility when you said he was "eye candy" and "smokin".

KM3Alum (or anyone else), is there a web page or a way to find out where people go when they leave Omaha? I'd be curious to see where some people end up in the business.

Steve said...

I've given him plenty of time. He's just not good at all. For instance, all week he kept saying South Carolina had zero national championships in any sport in school history. Before they won last night they did have a track and field championship. His facts were incorrect all week.

And who is the weekend guy? He has the single worst combover in TV history! Seriously!
