The dreadful news anchor team of Mike Snyder and Jane McGarry is finally out, at least at 10 p.m. when most people tune in to the news.
Snyder was booted down to the 6 p.m. slot in July, and now McGarry is joining him.
McGarry was decent as an anchor (meaning she could read, and she wasn’t too annoying).
Snyder was the worst of the worst.
Looks like Snyder and McGarry were put to pasture in favor of the younger and purtier Land and Curtis.
Welcome to the dog-eat-dog world of TV.
Good thing my ugly ass is in print journalism.
On a happy note, now maybe McGarry can spend more time on her enthralling blog, which hasn’t seen a new post since October 2008.
Who can forget her “bikini wax” post from May 2008 that earned her some unwanted notoriety:
“The Make-Up Room
“The Make-Up Room is where all anchors go before a newscast. So there are usually at least 3 or us doing our hair and make-up at one time. Usually it’s all girls. And usually the talk isn’t about news. It’s about men, dating, children, food….the stuff we’re all really interested in. So starting today on my blog, I’m going to share some of what we talk about behind the scenes.
“With summer around the corner, the subject of the bikini wax came up. Do you get one or not? I offered that I have before, but I can’t see the point because you have to let the hair get long enough to wax again, which means, you’ll need to shave! So why wax to begin with?
“Before long the bikini wax conversation had turned into a debate about shaving, vs. waxing, vs. laser hair removal….and then, how much hair to remove. Well, that depends on your generation.
“Our 5:00 anchor Meredith Land says these days, to younger women like her little sister, good grooming means…a complete wax, if you get what I mean.
“Now here’s my question: What if you get complete laser removal and the current trend turns out to be a fad? Are you stuck forever with something akin to a tatoo?
“We’re asking some of the younger women about that and I’ll let you know their answers – or feel free to comment and let me know what you think!”
Here’s McGarry and Snyder back in 1992 when they were the young turks (watch Snyder in this clip and you’ll see why he creeped me all these years):
