"How now brown cow! How now brown cow!"~Ron Burgandy, Anchorman
During the 30 minute news broadcast, there was alot of 'chit chat' with the news anchors in between the actual news segments. Essentially, this allows them to fill space where they do not have news to fill the 30 minute alloted time period. There seemed to be alot of not so newsworthy segments, especially the portion on the chocolate covered bacon and other food items that can be found at the Westmoreland Fair. This, and other segments they had, seemed to be just kind of thrown together because it was a slow news day. On top of that, there was even a weather up date which seemed like it was there to fill in even more time. Overall it was informative, but the majority of the segments seemed to be 'fillers' so that they could take up the entire time that was alloted to them for broadcasting.
