We have learned through the Ogle Mole Network that longtime KOCO Chief Meteorologist Rick Mitchell is apparently leaving Channel 5 to be the morning weatherman for KXAS NBC 5 in Dallas-Ft. Worth. Neither KOCO or KXAS have released anything official, but both stations informed their newsrooms of the change earlier this afternoon.
This is kind of bittersweet. Rick Mitchell has been the chief meteorologist for Channel 5 since he moved to Oklahoma City in 1994, and although he never had a drinking game like Gary England and Mike Morgan, he was respected and well-liked. In fact, he was so well-liked that girls wrote inappropriate things about him on bathroom walls .
Anyway, we’ll have more on this as information is leaked or announced. Stay with The Lost Ogle.com. We’ll keep you advised.
Update: At 5:15pm, Rick confirmed via his Twitter feed that he’ll indeed be taking his weather talents to Big D. Here’s a screen shot of his tweet:
So, I was about to set down in front of my computer and write about how we are finalists in a couple of categories in the Gazette’s “Best of OKC” and how you should probably go vote for us, but how it doesn’t really matter because the thing is stupid and rigged, but then I saw this tweet from Joleen Chaney:
What’s this you say, Joleen? You found a picture on Emily Sutton’s blog that deserves a caption contest. Well let me check out this picture and see if I can help.
The girl pictured above is Mindy Cottier. She is an escort, “exotic” dancer and (more than likely) infected with strange incurable diseases. She also fears for her life and may have video of Carina Saunder’s being tortured and murdered. We know this because The Oklahoman published it on the front page of their website and inside their newspaper.
Bethany police revealed Tuesday in court papers that there may be a video showing the killing and dismemberment of Carina Saunders.
A woman thought to have a copy of the video agreed to meet with Bethany police last week, but she didn’t show up because she “was scared to come forward,” according to a search warrant affidavit filed Tuesday in Oklahoma County District Court.
Police on July 3 searched a south Oklahoma City motel room where the woman — identified as Mindy Cottier — was staying. Police recovered a laptop computer, two zip drives, two cameras and four mobile phones.
Bethany Police Chief Phil Cole declined to comment on whether the video was found.
“Anything I release could hinder our investigation,” Cole said.
Cottier, 24, identifies herself on the Internet as an exotic dancer and professional escort. She goes by the alias, Michelle Foxx. She has a record that includes three arrests in 2009 and 2010 on prostitution complaints in the Dallas area, court documents show.
“I’m a stripper/escort and I love my job!” she wrote on Facebook. “I make more than 90% of the college graduates out there.”
I know it’s hard to feel sympathetic for dirty hookers who brag about how much they earn on Facebook, but isn’t it kind of tacky that The Oklahoman revealed the woman’s identity? She openly admits to “fearing for her safety” and claims to have video of a young murder victim being tortured and killed. The last thing she (or the police) probably wants is for her name and picture to be plastered in the damn newspaper.
Oh well, at least they had the class not to publish where she works and lives. Wait. Oops:
Yesterday, an Ogle Mole contacted us and asked two surprising questions: “Did you hear that channel 25 fired morning anchor Joe Gumm?” and “Did his flap with Howard Stern have something to do with it?” These questions were surprising because we didn’t know Joe Gumm was no longer at KOKH and we had no idea of any incident between Joe Gumm and Howard Stern because if any incident between Joe Gumm and Howard Stern had occurred surely this website of all websites would have known about it and why would there be an incident between Joe Gumm and Howard Stern?
The first thing I did when asked about this was go to the website GoOgle.com and type in the words “joe gumm howard stern” and then took a moment to think about how disappointed 14-year-old me must be in how my life turned out. After that, this video from a couple months ago popped up:
If you read this site often, you’ve probably noticed that we like to make fun of Dean Blevins from time to time. We do this primarily because Dean is a washed-up ex-jock and egotistical sports broadcaster who probably slept with your aunt (or one of her slutty friends) in the 1980s, but there are other reasons, too.
For example, he peed on live radio once. That’s always kind of funny and deserving of some mockery. He has that Twitter account, too. It’s kind of like reading the inner thoughts of an illiterate 12-year-old boy if they were to come from the troubled mind of a 55-year-old man. He also falls down quite a bit. That’s not funny, but it is kind of sad.
Well, it looks like we now have something new to add to our “Make Fun of Dean Blevins” list. It has nothing to do we percentages, slips or falls. It has everything to do with Dean Blevins being a vigilante who will hunt you down with a great vengeance and furious anger if you steal his Smart Ones frozen dinners.
