New WKMG sports anchor David Pingalore gets a profile in today’s Sentinel. We find out that GM Henry Maldonado likes Ping for his zany interaction at the anchor desk. "It brings the ensemble cast together," Maldonado told the Sentinel. (If you wonder about the state of TV news, just read that sentence again. )
So far I’m mixed on "Ping." He does bring a lot of energy to his reports (I’m not calling them sports reports), but I find one of his segments, where he insists on folks smelling a $100 bill, a bit obscene. "Here, smell it … Smell it again … Give it another whiff," he urges. Reminds me of that Spinal Tap album, perhaps.
What do you think of Ping? Leave comments below.
