It’s a good day for shitty contractors who like to rip off the elderly!
Earlier this week, KFOR’s Scott Hines – the reporter who handled the station’s long running “In Your Corner” series for the last decade or so – announced he is leaving Oklahoma’s news channel.
Scott made the announcement on Instagram, while apparently gazing into a mirror after finishing a color run 5K:

It’s not a “GOODBYE”…it’s a “SEE YOU SOON.” This week…bittersweet…as I wrap up my 15 year career at @kfortv4 Still have an infinite thirst for truth and connection…I’m listening to my heart & following the twinkly lights. The emotions come and go.. feels like a death (because it is)…as I bid farewell to “In Your Corner” and my K4 immediate & extended family. I’ve been taking a long hard look in the mirror in 2019..reflecting on identities…attachments…and the roles I’ve assumed over my 39 years on this earth plane. i’m feeling really grateful.. for ALL OF IT… but NOW is the time to consciously & deliberately shift into a new space, new energy.. a BIG lesson in trusting my life path… accepting what is.. and having faith that all is well.. and that the path of least resistance will reveal itself to me no matter what happens. Bring it — Unknown! I’ll share more later. In case you get a wild hair 😉 You can catch my Farewell IYC story TONIGHT (Wed. 9/25) @ 10pm on KFOR-TV. AND my “Corner” brother Marc Dillard & sister from another mister @amanchor are putting together one final “look back” piece airing TOMORROW night (Thurs. 9/26) @10pm on K to the 4. I Love You. BIG Hug. Photo cred: @nickmphotography #soul #evolution #quantum #jumping #heart #courage #okc #news #farewell
TLDR – Scott is quitting KFOR to either join a meditation commune or climb Mount Everest. Possibly both.
Regardless of why Scott is leaving, this news is bittersweet. First of all, it means we may never get to see Jordy again:
Second, Scott is and was a good dude. He was always one of my favorite co-workers back when I worked at KFOR. In fact, I think it was me and Lorne Fultonberg who gave him the nickname Scotty G!
Each week, during our Frugal Friday employe potlucks, Scott would always bring delicious homemade baked treats for everyone to enjoy. Just like Emily Sutton’s cotton candy casserole and Abby Broyles’ Coors Light long-necks, his mini-loaves of vegan pumpkin spice muffin bread was always a crowd favorite. From the moment he brought them in the front lobby – all comfortably tucked away in a checkered-towel inside a bread basket – their sweet, spicy and bready aroma would permeate through the entire complex, hitting you in the face like golden leaves blowing in an autumn wind.
Or something like that.
Anyway, we wish Scott all the best in his quest to consciously & deliberately shift into a new space, new energy while finding a new flight path. I’m sure area thieves, con men and out-of-state roofers do, too.
