On November 18, 2018, I was watching KDKA’s Sunday evening newscast for about 20 minutes or so … and I saw two personalities who were classy in several ways. They are Paul Martino, a reporter and an anchor for KDKA, and Ray Petelin, who is one of their meteorologists. Before that, he was the weekend evening meteorologist at WTAE for seven years. Until September of this year, they both aired on two different stations at the same time. Now I can watch them both on the same station at the same time on Saturday and Sunday evenings.
Seeing those two personalities on KDKA prompted me to write this blog post, which is about seeing TV personalities on weekends. WPXI’s weekend newscasts are full of classy people. Kevin Benson, who has been WPXI weekend weatherman for over 30 years, is easily one of the classiest weathermen on TV. He appears on just about every newscast on weekends. The station has classy weekend anchors, like Marlisa Goldsmith, who is their weekend evening anchor, and Jennifer Tomazic, who is their weekend morning anchor. They have classy weekend reporters too, like Erin Clarke and Lori Houy.
Some of WTAE’s classiest people are on their weekend newscasts. One of them is weekend morning weatherperson Cam Tran … and another one is Brittany Hoke, who is both a reporter and an anchor for the station.
As I said before, Paul Martino and Ray Petelin are two of KDKA’s classiest personalities … and they give KDKA’s weekend evening newscasts some class. The station’s Saturday morning newscasts have a classy person as its anchor … and her name is Brenda Waters. I like it whenever she needs her newscasts by saying, “Have a positive day!”
Finally, the cable news channels are full of classy people on weekends. Some of them include Lynn Smith, who anchors “Weekend Express” on HLN, and Ana Cabrera, who anchors the weekend evening editions of “CNN Newsroom” on CNN.
I love weekends because they are almost always full of classy people to watch on television.
