Channel 7 warms up the snow boxes

Six WHDH reporters in little boxes

Darryl Houston spotted WHDH exercising its snow-box system tonight, with a cute little six-boxer. The Boston TV record stands at 17 reporters, weatherpeople and a random kid named Bobby on screen at once; is this the season we truly become world class and break the 20 barrier?

How do these people do this with a straight face? These clowns wouldn't know real journalism or news reporting if it bit them.

He loved the British term "news readers" for our anchors.

He'd roll over in his grave if he saw these weather whatevers referred to as reporters.

If everyone seems to know what a joke this is, why does it keep happening? It clearly must generate revenue to create this nonsense broadcasting. There must be a lot of stay at homes and shut-ins getting enjoyment out of it.

Watching breathless news coverage of storms is pretty much the only decent form of entertainment many of us have all winter. The only time I ever watch the local news is during storms.

Everybody knows it's fake, both the audience and the performers. But they maintain the suspension of disbelief for the entertainment value.

We all know that it takes at least 30 articles a year about parking spot markers to be considered world class. Looks like it is at 1 and counting.
