MEET ERNIE

September 18, 2009

MeetErnieLOGO

I seldom watch our local news broadcast here in Columbus. It’s not that I’m not interested in my community, it’s just that I’m more interested in national news. I watch ( or listen to) many different cable broadcasts throughout the evening. They often air at the same time as the local broadcasts, so cable wins.

Ernie Anastos and Dari Alexander could change that.

 Ernie-Dari

As is true with any live broadcast, there is always a chance for a blooper or two. Ernie, however, has “perfected” the blooper and his latest does not disappoint.

But it is his co-anchor, Dari Alexender, who wins the prize for the absolute BEST reaction to a blooper ever recorded.

Reaction1

Everytime I look at the reaction on her face, I really do laugh out loud. 

It appears she’s had many opportunities to perfect her reactive “look.” Here’s a still from another Ernie classic. She’s doing all she can to hold back laughter. 

Reaction2 

And the blooper that led to that reaction?

Yup. If Ernie and Dari were our local news co-anchors, I would have to tune in.

Sincerely,

PS – Dari Alexander did work as a reporter in Columbus for a short time, but was never an anchor.

  1. Nah, they’re not nearly as interesting as these flubs would have you believe. Chuck, Sue, and NBC all the way!


  2. Hi Gordon,

    Thanks for the comment. I’m assuming that Chuck and Sue are co-anchors on the local NBC station in NY?

    Michael
