Comment of the Day: The Death of News Radio in Houston
We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.
So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.
This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.
We told you how KTRH was axing longtime news anchors J.P. Pritchard and Lana Hughes in favor of a team featuring a right-wing brayer (we included video evidence of his style).
Readers mourned the steady decline of what was once a great local news outlet.
