For some reason, the anonymous blogger at Omaha TV News continues to have a problem with former KODE anchor Jim Siedlecki. In the past, he has compared Siedlecki's appearance to that of Jim Nabors, and in addition to looks, he has also criticized the way Siedlecki pronounces words.
The anonymous blogger has always been a fan of former KODE anchor Malorie Maddox since she left Joplin for WOWT in Omaha, but has attacked Siedlecki since he arrived to join his former KODE co-anchor as co-host of the station's morning show.
The latest tirade was posted Thursday:
It sure is nice tuning in to WOWT's "Live at Daybreak" this week and not being yelled at by Jim Thiedlecki. Apparently Big Jim is on vacation. Malorie Maddox, as we've noted before, comes across as exponentially more poised and intelligent when she's not splitting time with and being interrupted by her overbearing, buffoonish co-anchor.
I don't know what this guy's problem with Jim Siedlecki is, but I do know that he and Malorie worked together well while they were in Joplin, and I have resented his previous posts in which he has said that Siedlecki might be good enough for Joplin, but he's not good enough for Omaha.
A note to those of you who will automatically jump on me saying I have done the same things to local newscasters. Check carefully and you will see that is not true. I have never criticized a television reporter or anchor for anything other than the content of their programs. And I always post my criticisms under my own name and not anonymously.
