Maybe the move to Global will put the NW newsreaders under more scrutiny from their bosses. Example: this weekend, while listening to some newbie reading the news, she referred to 'Sigh-rah-cuse' University. Duh. Do they not test these so-called journalists on their command of the language and basic knowledge. It made this person come off as a complete dummy. What made it worse, when the news clip came up on after she butchered the name of the university, the on-scene reporter, of course read the name properly. Obviously, newbie didn't even listen to the clip to at least hear the proper pronunciation. Major market news...not even close!

Many, many mispronunciations by this reader over the past year or so. Many are cringe-worthy.

“Sigh-ra-cuse”.

Sigh. Kinda reminds of Gordon Lightfoot covering Me and Bobby McGee. He sang “Sa-line-us” instead of the California community’s proper name “Sa-leen-es.”

At least you could tap your toes to Gord’s miscue.
