I get that TV news call letters and personalities can be confusing–especially in a business with a lot of turnover and schedule changes. For instance, it’s been more than five years since I moved from co-anchoring the KWWL weekday morning and noon news to the evening newscasts with Ron. Yet on a regular basis people come up and say, “I watch you every morning.” The other day someone called Mark in the weather department and asked to speak with Terry Thompson. “You mean Tara Thomas?” he replied. Yes, that’s who the caller meant. And Mark, by the way, has one of the most-butchered last names. Viewers call Mr. Schnackenberg things like “Snack” and “Shank” all the time. Cracks me up. One time Dave and I were out with Ron and his wife Candy when someone shouted out, “Hey, there’s Rick Coleman!” Hilarious. I don’t mind the mix-ups. Lord knows I am terrible with names and faces!
