On her blog, radio personality and voice actor April Winchell has posted an MP3 file of an on-air tiff (
audio she wants you to listen to it from her blog, so click on the link above) between anchors Paul Moyer and Ann Martin back when they were together on the Channel 7 Eyewitness News. Can't tell what they are fighting about, but this snippet is bound to be a classic in local TV lore, if it isn't already. I especially like that the specter of working with Harold Greene is viewed as a threat. Some excerpts:
Paul: I'm not going to sit here night after night and put up with this shit. OK?
Ann: Night after night? Night after night?
Ann: You started it pal.
Paul: Let me tell you something, kiddo. You want Harold Greene you might get him.
Ann: Fine with me. Fine with me.
Paul: Oh is it really?
Ann: Good old Harold Greene.
[Stage manager: 30 seconds!]
Paul: You know, you go home and have a couple of shooters and i don't know what the fuck happens, but you come back you're not the same lady.
Ann: That's not true.
How old is it? Well, Moyer has been back at KNBC since 1992. Martin is now at Channel 2 (as is Greene). Winchell posted that she received the evidence just today. Her comment: "This is the best Christmas ever!" * Update: Turns out Ron Fineman posted the audio on his pay site Monday night, along with an email from Moyer's producer at NBC4 asking him not to use it. Fineman writes that Kevin and Bean aired the clip on KROQ several weeks ago.
