A couple of quick items to start off the new year …

Congrats to former WESH anchor Shannon Hori, now at WFOR-CBS 4 in Miami. Last week she welcomed twin boys, Colt and Cade. “The best Christmas present ever,” Hori told the Miami Herald. The boys are the first children for Hori, 36, and husband Kendall Cogan, 42. who owns Firehouse Subs franchises. Click here to read more. …

Believe it or not, apparently it wasn’t “all Caylee coverage, all the time” for at least one local station in 2008. WOFL’s Web site, MyFoxOrlando.com, listed its top 10 stories on the site for 2008. Here are the top five:

  1. Girl called racist for wearing Palin T-shirt;
  2. City vehicles painted with anti-Obama sayings; 
  3. Student who took religious icon getting death threats;
  4. Florida teens confront Fox 35 after mom’s arrest;
  5. Car wash mom pleads no contest.

Not sure what that lists says about MyFoxOrlando’s visitors. You can see the full list by clicking here. …

And finally, here’s a trip down video lane: Part of WFTV’s Eyewitness News from 1978, complete with anchor Bob Jordan, weatherman Burd Bullock and sports with Mike James (now of NewsBlues.com fame.) There’s also a credit roll at the end of the show … see if you recognize any of the names.
