Loebig is on the way out. Going up north. Reporter changes as well.

Let's get it right...it's ASHEVILLE....not ASHVILLE...don;t forget the "E"

what happened to Loebig...where's he going? I always thought he was a bit of a jerk and was sorry to see a formerly powerhouse LOS fade so completely.

Was WLOS ever a powerhouse? In Asheville, where they are the only station, yes, but I always thought WYFF and WSPA went back and forth as dominant.

I'd love to work at WLOS, except for the current owners.
Maybe I can round up some wealthy folks and go buy it. That'd be fun. I LOVE Asheville.
I am in serious need of some Green Man Pale Ale.

Loebig is actually one of the truly nice guys in this business and a pretty darn good ND. That's a tough tri-split market where WLOS is in the smallest metro area.
He's going back to PA to be close to his family. His mom is at that age where it makes sense for him and his kids. I wish him well - he deserves is.

WLOS is Sinclair. Awful enough, but they're also in a pissing contest with a local cable provider. I will give WLOS credit for this "open letter" to viewers (and open "screw you" to Mediacom):
Please be aware, however, that the termination of our relationship with Mediacom need not limit your ability to continue to watch us. First of all, you will continue to be able to watch us completely for free over-the-air. In addition, you may choose to subscribe to either DirecTV or to the Dish Network, both of which will continue to carry all of the Sinclair Stations. We particularly encourage you to call DirecTV at 1-800-381-4388 because if you sign up with them prior to December 31, 2006 and comply with certain requirements, Sinclair WILL PAY YOU up to $100 (which will be applied as ten $10 rebates against each of your first 10 monthly DirecTV bills)! For complete details on this offer, call DirecTV.
