“My take on it would be [one of] two people: a guy that filled in for Bryant one time, Tom Bergeron-he did a really good job. He and Jane [Clayson] seemed to have a little chemistry. Either that or Brian Williams.”
David Cavileer, GM, WXVT-TV (CBS), Greenville, Miss.
“The calls we’ve had from our viewers are overwhelmingly in favor of Tom Bergeron-over 70 phone calls. When Tom subs, there is a little bit more energy to the show.”
Wayne Lansche, GM, KBAK-TV (CBS), Bakersfield, Calif.
“I would avoid any more network retreads. I’d suggest Kent Shocknek, who does the early-morning show for KCBS-TV [Los Angeles]. He’s a strong communicator and very friendly. I’d do it, but I don’t like to get up that early.”
