We don’t cover the happenings of the Tulsa news media all that much, but today we’ll make a well-deserved exception.
The woman pictured above is Lori Fullbright. She’s a longtime news anchor and crime reporter for News on 6. According to our Tulsa Moles, Lori is kind of a cross between Meg Alexander, Amy McRee and Ali Meyer, only a bit more serious and sober. Actually, I just kind of made that up, but I say we go with it.
Lori has worked for Channel 6 since 1992, which means Tulsa residents have literally watched her grow (in many ways) before their very own eyes. She’s been on hand to cover all the big Tulsa news events over the past 24 years like… uhm… uh… the botching of that Belvedere time capsule? The let’s-pretend-I’m-a-deputy Sheriff’s deputy that murdered that guy? Chandler being transferred to work in Tulsa? Seriously, Tulsa is such a boring city that even their big news events suck. Thank God they have Hanson and Biker Fox.
Anyway, I’m bringing all this up because News on 6 recently released this TV promo for Lori. If you like feet, talking shoes and sending women who work in TV news back about 40 years, you’ll love it. Read More
It looks like Austin Holland finally found someone to buy his “Earthquake Research” van. Unfortunately, the van’s new owner is worrying neighbors, local authorities, and even News 9.
Logan County Sheriff’s Office Warns Against ‘Earthquake Research Van’
The Logan County Sheriff’s office is warning against an “earthquake research van” recently spotted near Crescent, Oklahoma.
The van has writings on its side, “Earthquake Research.” It has been seen on Cooksey Road south of Crescent parked on private property.
Apparently, a neighbor confronted the driver of the van late last week, and that driver sped off abruptly.
Well, that sums up our state’s response to the earthquake crisis pretty well. Now whenever people see a beat up “Earthquake Research” van near their property, they automatically assume the vehicle is suspicious and part of a scam or gimmick. Thanks Mary Fallin!
That being said, the van did look shady. I bet is was just a front to steal copper out of seismographs. If so, the owner of the van is doing it all wrong. Although copper is lucrative, there are some issues. Check them out:
Maybe you’ve been stuck in a terrible job, or about to lose your oil and gas gig, but have had issues finding a new source of income. That totally sucks for you, but that’s kind of what Oklahoma is right now. For normal joes, welcome to the bust. But rich folks have all manner of opportunities. Like Kevin Durant, for example.
When he’s not playing basketball, Kevin Durant is apparently a Super Bowl credentialed photographer. Why? Well, because life isn’t fair. But also because he knows the right people, I guess. But that’s not important. What is important is thinking about what sort of career opportunities this opens up for KD. I mean, just think about. You may hate having your picture taken, but you’d probably like to have KD take your picture, right?
Actually, Kevin told us why he was a photographer. Via the Player’s Tribune:
I came to Super Bowl 50 with two tickets: one for my regular seat … and a press pass with my name on it. When I was invited by The Players’ Tribune and the NFL to be a credentialed photographer on the sidelines during the Super Bowl, I said “I’ll do it” before they even finished their question. Seriously, that’s a dream offer. Like most people, I’ve watched the Super Bowl on TV every year of my life. The way the NBA schedule is, it’s almost impossible to get to go to the Super Bowl in person. This year I got lucky that 1) We were in the Bay already and 2) We had an off day Super Bowl Sunday. I don’t know if that timing will ever work out again while I’m in the league.
That’s cute, Kevin. But doesn’t Kevin hate the media? This would be like Russell Westbrook working as a copy editor for Berry Tramel. At least Kevin acknowledged the hypocrisy:
Last Friday, Joleen Chaney posted the following video on Facebook. In it, we learned three things:
1. News 9 is now requiring its on-air talent to meet weekly Facebook video quotas…
2. Joleen Chaney is easily amused…
3. Steve Shaw really wants Joleen Chaney to invite him out to a bar…
Check it out:

Wow! Who knew it was that easy to make Joleen Chaney laugh?! That’s awesome! If she thinks Steve’s not-so-coy attempt to trick her into inviting him to a bar was funny, imagine how much she’d laugh at my trivia questions, limericks and Falkor impersonation over a nice dinner at Zio’s. I could even draw her caricature sketch on the tablecloth. She love it more than riding in a tilt-a-whirl. She wouldn’t stop laughing! It would be so much fun!
Yeah, in case it wasn’t obvious, Steve went with the old “Hey, maybe if I bring up going to a bar, she’ll invite me to a bar” routine. It’s an old school technique that’s been practiced by men for ages. Kind of like an old promo code from Retail Me Not, it doesn’t always work, but when it does, you feel golden. It was definitely worth a shot
Anyway, I have no clue if JoJo ended up at a bar, but I’m pretty sure Steve did. He may also have hit one up on Saturday and Sunday. Check out the quota-filling video he posted Sunday afternoon, just hours before he probably lost a lot of money on the Super Bowl: Read More
Don’t expect the Christmas lights to return to Chesapeake anytime soon.
Trading of the energy company’s stock was halted today after bankruptcy rumors hit Wall Street. Apparently, Chesapeake has retained the services of some firm that helps big public companies “Restructure.” This led to a massive selloff in the company’s stock.
At least that’s what I think happened. Since I’m a typical American and really have no clue how stocks, markets and commodities work, thus limiting my opportunity to get rich or build wealth, I’ll let Forbe’s Christopher Helman, the resident thorn in Chesapeake’s side, explain:
