Hi new reader! How are you? You’re at a website called The Lost Ogle (AOL Keyword: TheLostOgle). Don’t worry, we’re not a real Ogle brother. But still send us your ‘Rants.’ We love those.
Anyway, you are here because you learned Bob Moore Chopper 4 pilot Jim Gardner has been replaced by some dude named Jon Welsh. Yes, Channel 4′s new pilot spells his named “Jon.” He’s one of those guys. Don’t worry, though. Jim Gardner is moving over to Channel 9 and will become one of Gary’s chief disciples. Hopefully his first action as captain of Sky News HD will be to change its name back to Ranger 9.
Anyway, you would have known all this if you were a regular reader of this site. We were all over it back in July of 2011:
Well, it looks like some helicopter drama is unfolding over the Oklahoma City metro.
We have learned that Bob Moore Chopper 4 pilot Jim Gardner will be leaving Channel 4 to take over the piloting duties for Channel 9. Gardner will replace Mason Dunn…
Here’s what else we (possibly) learned:
Our loyal legion of female fans sometimes get a little frustrated with our unbalanced coverage of hotness. They point to pictures of hot news chicks, porn stars and even scantily clad college girls and scream “Where are the pictures of hunky men?! Where are those six-pack abs and muscly arms?! Where’s Kelly Ogle taking off his shirt and drinking a Diet Coke at a construction site?!”
Well, ladies, today is your lucky day. Stop your complaining and meet the reporters who will be manning the new energy beat for The Oklahoman. They are hot and they mean business!
Earlier this week, KSBI OK Sports Wrap anchor Abigail Ogle — Yes, that Abigail Ogle — posted to her Facebook wall this edgy radio promotion:
Ignore real quick that KSBI was able to “cram in” a year’s worth of sexual puns and innuendos in a 30 second commercial, what I want to know is if anyone else is freaked-out that an Ogle brother’s daughter is posting sexually suggestive commercials on her Facebook wall!?! That’s just weird. The only thing weirder is that Abigail Ogle is a sports anchor. Dear God, I’m getting old. Before you know it, KSBI is going to hire one of Gary England’s grandkids to be a storm chaser.
Anyway, I went over to KSBI to see if their sports report really is “30 penetrating minutes of sports analysis” and “10 times the pleasure, three times a week.” Here’s the most recent episode:
I’m not sure why, but I’ve always kind of liked Andrew Speno. He seems like a good dude, has been around the market for a while, and even pissed of Steve Largent during the (has it really been 10 years?) 2002 gubernatorial campaign.
Because of all that, I was sad to see that Andrew Speno was forced to apologize to the dozens of KOKH Channel 25 FOX News at 9:00 viewers for comments he made on Thursday night’s broadcast. Here’s the apology. You can watch the video of it at the Fox 25 website. It’s kind of awkward:
I apologize to anyone offended by the remarks I made about Whitney Houston during the FOX 25 Primetime News at Nine on March, 8, 2012. My intent was not to offend but I now see the context in which my comment was taken by many of our viewers. During that segment, we sometimes make fun of celebrities but I can see how my comment about Whitney Houston, so soon after her death, was in poor taste. I hope each of you will continue to watch our newscast. I respect your opinions and each viewer’s value as part of our community.
If you ever need to contact me with questions or feedback, feel free to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You’re probably wondering what Speno said about Whitney Houston to evoke such outrage from people who forgot to change the channel after watching American Idol and the new hit FOX series Touch. This is what we heard happened from a few Ogle Moles who watched it live.
Last week Channel 25′s morning show Joe Gumm’s Super-Happy Funhouse sent Christal Bennett to something called “DW’s Exotic Animal Park” in Weatherford. At first I thought they were talking about DW’s porn store just south of the border, but it turns out DW’s Animal Park and DW’s porn store are very different things. Who knew!?
Anyway, things were going fine for Christal Bennett until some guy decided to surprise her by putting a snake around her neck. Her reaction was, well, see for yourself:
Thanks! Your message has been sent!
