Anchor should not use unprofessional phrases

Editor, the Advocate:
I would like to voice my disappointment in KAVU. It is a sad day when our anchor newsperson resorts to using language that is disrespectful to the community and unprofessional. Victoria is a wonderful place to live and I realize that the television coverage has no competition here. After calling the station and talking to the person "in charge" of the news broadcast, I was told, with no apology, that they would speak to him and have him apologize on the air that night. Needless to say, they didn't feel it necessary to apologize to the viewers for his language. It is not appropriate for those representing our city to exhibit this kind of behavior. A friend went to the station to voice her problem with this incident and was basically dismissed. KAVU, we hope you will clean up your act and your attitude toward your viewers.
Let me add that we like this news anchor and hope he will continue to report the local happenings. Granted he had an error in judgement, but overall does a good job. Victoria Advocate, thank you for giving your readers a voice to share our opinions and views.
Gwyn Wright, Victoria
