TIM TIALDO IS OUTTA THERE, TOO

In the wake of Jerry Jacob's announced departure from KY3, there is far less uproar about another departure from the local NBC affiliate. Michelle Sherwood notes the resignation of Tim Tialdo, the weekend anchor. Reports Sherwood:
He will leave at the end of December to pursue other interests in the market.
He will be the new face of the Ozarks CW!
So he'll still be around, just not like he is now...
Oldsters may recall a March 2004 post (in an earlier version of CHATTER) that noted the remarkable resemblance between Tialdo and Ike, the little brother on "South Park." Others thought he was more like Miller Redfield from "Murphy Brown." Such kidders.

I guess news isn't for everyone. But, there aren't very many jobs on-air in TV that aren't related to news.

What in the hell is Ozarks CW?

It used to be UPN15, the low-power TV station operated by KY3. So this is almost a lateral move. More like down and to the right.

Thanks for clearing that up. So, he's going to be in TV? In tv news? Guess I didn't quite get it. Thanks anyway!

To clarify even more, the CW is a network combined of UPN and the WB.

In September, Warner Brothers and CBS Corp announced the plans, with each owning 50%--hence, the C stands for CBS, the W stands for Warner. The CW pulled its programming from the most successful shows on the WB and UPN.

"Veronica Mars", Chris Rock's show "Everbody Hates Chris", "Gilmore Girls" are examples of the shows that survived the transition.

Thanks, Michelle. I know of that station and its infancy. But, but and but, what is Tim Tialdo going to do for them? Is he moving somewhere else to do whatever this is? Do they have news?

It's pretty clear to us that it won't be news. The interesting thing for Tim is that he'll likely have to make up his own job duties. Perhaps we'll see some local programming that's entertainment-based...or perhaps you'll hear his voice on all the CW promos...we just won't know until long after this post..but I'm sure he'll be successful. He's pretty determined to bring something new to the area, and this kind of stuff really motivates him.

If people are keen on Tim, they can see him at Hammons Field with the Cardinals are in town. He's a part of the "entertainment" between innings.
