Local News Unplugged

If you've ever worked in the field with me, you know I've long had a dream about a kind of unplugged, unrestrained local newscast where reporters and anchors talk like real people. And by that, I don't mean they simply start liveshots by saying "hey guys" to the anchors. I mean, really, truly, telling stories the way we tell each other.

Or the anchor: "Mark, what the fu-- is going on out there?" "Well Bob, police tell us some poor fu-- was using the ATM when a couple of fu--ing assh---s drive up and start shooting."
