Well, that was short-lived. We’ve learned that Bobbie will be replacing Robin Marsh on the traditional News 9 morning show. The move is expected to happen when Bobbie returns from her annual maternity leave in a few weeks.
From an Ogle Mole email:
Check with your moles at 9. Anchor shuffle. Christina Eckert is leaving.
Robin marsh is going to part time and will be on the 4pm with Lauren Nelson. Bobbie & Stan Miller will do morning show.
Yeah, those are the types of emails we receive on a regular basis. Kind of cool, huh? It’s also a little bit depressing. Think about it. Someone really went out and created a gmail address called OgleMole9999 just so they could send us some local news gossip. I love it, but it also makes me feel like the protagonist in a really lame local version of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
So I asked around the Ogle Mole Network and I have it on good authority that the email tipster was correct. Bobbie Miller is moving to the “traditional” News 9 morning show, Robin Marsh is moving to the News 9 a 4:00pm broadcast with Lauren Nelson, and Christina Eckert is going somewhere we she doesn’t have to watch the Fat Jack’s Wife cook barbecue and apple pie. Good for Christina Eckert!
Actually, were you aware of that? News 9’s Fat and Sassy Mamma is the wife of local sports handicapper (and Jim Traber kissing buddy) The Fat Jack. It’s good to know they’re profiting from the fat moniker. I can’t wait to see their testimonial PSAs for Type II Diabetes that should run in about five years. I heard the Oklahoma Geological Survey researched the couple’s sexual habits when investigating local earthquakes.
Anyway, other than the devil having something to do with it, I don’t have a lot to say about this shake-up. I’m a full-time blogger and trivia host. If I’m watching the 4:00am news, it’s a cue that I should go to bed. If I’m up watching a morning show, it either means I’m in jail or had a really fun night. Or possibly both.
