For years I railed against the garish lighting, canned segues, Stepford cadences and nervous paper-shuffling of TV newscasts. Then, with one cheery "Welcome to the WWL morning family!" from the charming Rob Nelson, I melted — and became one of them. Every Thursday morning at 7:45 a.m., catch Rob and I counting down the weekend's hottest activities. Or, if you happen to feel that's a godforsaken hour when no human should be awake, let alone on camera (start the letter campaign, please), you can read all about it here, in your skivvies and stubble, at the crack of noon like a normal person.
