    Gee, shocking, TV stations hire news people based on their looks.

    Obviously this is someone who wants to be taken seriously as a journalist.

    Is it his fault he peaked as a waiter?

    That looks photoshopped. Like his face was pasted onto another body.

    It's the photo from his website unless someone is spoofing him.

    I'd interested to read how the TV station justifies hiring hotties and putting non-hotties out of work.

    Not that we all don't know they do it, but legally, it's dubious unless they can prove someone they fired was done so for cause.

    Just looked odd to me. I might be the only one who sees it that way. There's no doubt some shopping on it to get out some wrinkles and/or blemishes and to even up the skin tone. Maybe that's what I'm seeing.

    It may not be fair, but since when did a company have to grant you an interview for a job. Just because he thinks he's more qualified doesn't mean he fit the total job description. I think this goes just about nowhere.

    It's not that he was fired -- he doesn't work for them, although he did years ago as a weather producer, according to his bio.

    He apparently thinks that because he's so fabulous, there's no possible justification for hiring anyone else when they have an opening.

    That photo looks doctored.

    Looks a little young to be slinging around waffer-thin morsels.
