    Congratulations on the much needed morning broadcast on the week-ends. You have out-done the other channels. I am a big fan of the morning news show with Mike, Sara, and the rest. I can only hope that Tim Doty can take some tips from them. He is the reason I wouldn't watch the 17 evening news show as he is so GORKY. Put some hand cuffs on him, or show him what to do with his hands to improve his image. I will try to faithfully watch this indeavor in hopes that I can get over Tim.
