It looks like you’ll finally be able to start your day with a little cup of (sigh) JoJo. Sorry. Had to do it.
Yes, we’ve confirmed that local media vixen and tilt-a-whirl rider Joleen Chaney is moving to the land of fake laughs and bus stop forecasts. She’ll anchor the 4:00am news broadcast on Channel 4 and host Rise & Shine on Freedom 43.
Normally, I wouldn’t take news like this very well. Who watches local morning news other than weirdos and old people? If I’m awake 4:00am, I consider it a sign that I need to try to sober up and go to bed. If I’m up at 7:00am, my neighbors are probably getting a new roof. And the last thing I want to do in either of those situations is watch overly happy people tell me about the news.
All that being said, this is actually a good thing. It means Joleen Chaney and Emily Sutton are finally reunited! Who would have a problem with that? Sure, we’ll never get to watch them or anything, but least we’ll see the return of tweets like this:
It’s been a few months since David Payne left Channel 4 to be Gary England’s severe weather deity in waiting at Channel 9. So far, it doesn’t appear the new gig (and larger paycheck) has changed the guy. He’s still the same casual, laid back, chatty weatherman we’ve all grown to moderately enjoy. When May gets here, we fully expect him to drive into a tornado and end up in heaven or Oz.
If you need proof, check out this clip of him presenting the seven-day forecast on News 9 at 10:00pm. He yucks it up with Kelly and Amanda and suggests that we may be a computer animated leprechaun.
It’s been a rough week for the intern who writes the captions at Channel 4. First they forgot the name of their own reporter, now they are making claims that Jim Wyett doesn’t own a guy.
Via an Ogle Mole on Twitter:
Know what else Jim doesn’t own? A fashionable pair of sunglasses. He does own the 1990s Mark McGuire goat-tee look, though. That will be in style again before you know it. In fact, some hipster in the Plaza District is trimming one as you read this.
Since owning a guy has been illegal for 150 years, you have to think the caption was supposed to read “Jim Wyett doesn’t own a gun.” But I even question the accuracy of that statement. If Jim’s not a gun owner, why does he look like every other gun owner (minus the overly patriotic hat)? Also, why’s he at a place where guns appear to be readily sold and available? That’s like showing a pic of a girl in front of Baker’s Street with the caption “Is not easy.” It’s just not accurate. Also, what’s the ghost from Three Men and a Baby doing over Jim’s left shoulder? That kid has grown up.
This isn’t the worse typo KFOR’s ever committed. Anyone remember this:
What do Kevin Durant, sex attorney David Slane and The Lost Ogle all have in common?
Apparently, we’re all “movers and shakers” and a great source for local news tips.
At least we are according to KFOR Channel 4. We’ve acquired through the Ogle Mole Network an odd email sent by KFOR Social Media Director Ashton Edwards to the station’s staff. She’s apparently compiling a Twitter list of notable people, places and things and is looking for a few suggestions. She even provided some examples of what she’s looking for.

It’s been a while since we’ve written about NewsOK’s Dave Morris. Back in our early days, the guy was always good for a cheap punchline or two. He had all the qualifications. He played keyboard in a cheesy rock band, took pics like the one above, and pees sitting down. He also had a hot wife. Basically, he offered an unlimited supply of TLO-worthy material. He was like Christina Fallin, only without the pink hair and an even longer face.
As the years have passed, we gradually quit writing about “Know Your Mo.” I chalk this up to him being out of sight and out of mind. You see, a few years ago I finally installed Flash Block on my web browser. This means I no longer see Dave in those annoying NewsOK’s auto-play videos that accompany every article and alert your co-workers that you’re goofing off on the Internet. Those videos are only cool when Jennifer Wardlow tells you about a bank robbery on the southside from a really odd camera angle. Or when this happens.
Another reason we quit writing about Dave is that he’s actually a nice guy. I’ve met him a few times and he hasn’t tried to beat me up once! On the other hand, his hot wife was terrifying. The one time I met her I thought she was going to grow wolverine claws and tear out my soul. She told me I was a terrible person, the scum of the earth and dirtier than AIDS. At least I think that’s what she said. I was too distracted by at her perky breasts.
Anyway, apparently Dave and Hotzilla divorced over the summer. I learned about this a couple of weeks ago when a high level Ogle Mole informed me that Dave is now dating this local media hottie:
Thanks! Your message has been sent!
