Angelique Frame Update

Still no word on who will replace Channel 19 chief meteorologist Paul Horton when he leaves this weekend for Arizona, but one thing is certain: It won't be Angelique Frame.

The former Channel 5 (1997-2001) and Channel 12 (2001-04) meteorologist quit the TV business this summer, after working for the Sacramento CBS and CW affiliate.

She now works with her husband, former Channel 5 anchor Greg McKinney (1994-2003), on their Internet video business They just moved to San Diego to be close to one of their biggest clients.

McKinney, a Cincinnati native, started Webstorytellers a year ago. They produce TV news-like feature reports about businesses which companies can post on their web sites. They have clients in California, Kentucky, Ohio, New York, New Jersey, Washington, Arizona, Nevada and Wisconsin.

" 'Business Week' recently had an article online about how video and video advertising is going to boom on the web. We definitely want to be part of that boom. Now we just have to get the word out about it," she says. Their video about Covington's Systems Insight Inc. can be seen at

Frame says she doesn't miss TV. "I have no regrets, at all. This is much more fun, and there are no quirky newsrooms to deal with," she says.

I always liked her weather presentations, and thought Channel 5 made a mistake replacing her with Bryon Webre.

If I was 19 I would go after larry handley and offer him Chief. He makes the most sense to me in this market. He is qualified and would probably be his last stop.

Also, Kristie does a good job, how about her for Chief at 19?

Larry Handley would be a fabulous choice for 19, but I doubt they'd be willing to pay him enough.

This is not a comment about your topic nor even a tv question. I read your article about Dan Patrick in the Mason Magazine. Dan's new radio show starts up Oct. 1. Do you know if it will be picked up locally? Or possibly a Dayton station? I enjoy your articles and Blog. Keep up the great work. Thanks for your help!

And what about Boomer taking over Imus's old show. Does that mean the end of the current, weak local lineup on 1530? I am all for local, but with what is being run out there currently, they could not do any worse with Boomer and Patrick from 6am to noon. I don't think the ever-shrinking Clear Channel would want to piss off ESPN Radio having just begun to air their lineup on 1360, but how could you go wrong with Boomer and Patrick. 2 big name, proven stars, with local connections as opposed to the crap that occupies 1530 right now. Give me national!

Anon 3:18.

I couldn't agree with you more. I'm all for local programming, but with Clear Channel offering near minimum-wage, part time positions for its 1530 programming, WHY BOTHER. They'll never attract a major market sports host for that kind of money. There are probably 15 guys in this town working other professions, who should be working on a 1530-type station, but the pay is nothing.

Boomer and Dan would be much better, and wouldn't cost CC a dime, in fact, they would save what they are paying Lewis, and the two high school kids on after him.

Lewis sounds like a guy working two jobs, who's been up all night. Oh wait, he has been up, doing all-night news at WLW.
