Kate Welshofer, off prompter

kate welshoferNewsflash: the people on TV are actual, three-dimensional people. You might find that surprising, but we can confirm from having known of some these people from before they were were on TV -- they existed pre-screen. It's true.

Sometimes these TV people provide clues that they are, in fact, real people. We came across one such clue recently: "No Teleprompter, No Mercy," a blog written by YNN anchorlady Kate Welshofer.

Some of the posts are about TV news. Others are more personal, like the one about how the state issued her father a lifetime hunting license -- six months after he died. All of them usually involve some humor. We enjoyed a recent post about using the weather tease format for everyday conversations:

"We are out of toilet paper... again. How many times does this have to happen? I'm going to check the linen closet and I'll let you know what I find."

Kate* is also on Twitter, as is her cat -- Brian Williams (@AnchorcatBrian).

She always comes off as so serene on TV (maybe it's her eyes, they are... very blue). We like the fact that she seems like a bit of a goofball the rest of the time.

*Can we call you Kate? We've watched you on TV, so, it's like we know you, right? Right? (Oh, no, we're like those people who used to say, "I know you from the radio!")

Much, Much improved over the movie theatre idea...reallly embraces Troy as a residential city. Keep the tower tall---troy needs the tax dollars, it adds to the skyline. Access and development of the waterfront was well done. And returning Hudson River Sloops--nice touch, reminds me of the learn to sail places along the Charles in boston. This is a plan worthy of public investment. Let's not make perfect the enemy of the good.
