Our loyal correspondent from Fox News makes me aware of
ABC news’ decision to add two more VJ bureaus to its original 7.

They don’t call them VJs, they call then Digital Correspondents – just like at KGTV in San Diego.

Here’s the link.

A Happy Thanksgiving.

    The category that includes clips produced by users placed ninth out of 11. ”
