Here is my .03:
1) Who cares about the Lt. Governor? As Illinois people discovered during the Blago ousting, the position technically holds little responsibility and power. Most states have removed the position.
2) Sly is a fat slob who would do anything to get in the papers. That station of his just cannot make it on its own. "Charger" was a riot of a pick to be PD. This guy used to sleep on the promotions couch at WLUM in Milwaukee when he did overnights. No, not 15 years ago - actually pretty recently. He has _zero_ experience programming and managing a talk radio station. If WTDY wants to become anything close to successful, they need to pull someone with real experience from a medium or major sized market and at the very least pay them to be a hands-on consultant.
3) I remember when R.K. was just a reporter and fill-in anchor at WISN 12 News. Back then I believe it was branded as "Channel 12 News." Didn't she marry a co-worker? Or is that her brother? Anyway, I don't see her as having a ton of real experience but see my #1 comment - her position doesn't require much on the resume because you don't do much. I have no idea how she or Scott Walker got elected, but they did so some people in WI must like their politics.
