Welcome Wagon

Welcome to Brock Spencer, the newest reporter at WHOI. He replaces Steve Nicoles who has moved on, but truthfully, I've been too busy to find out where. I heard Iowa.

Thanks, I've updated the post to include a link to his new bio.

I'm sorry to see Steve leave. I follow HOI's Web site quite closely, because the quality of the station's Web based news is quite high compared to other sites, and that's not a knock at any other stations. All of peoria's TV stations have their strengths and weaknesses. I've noticed that articles with Steve's byline were quite longer and generally more complete than those under under reporter's bylines.

And the new guy is named "Brock?" I've got $10 bucks in my pocket that says his parents did not name this guy "Brock."

I'll take that bet, Bill.

You're on. As soon as you and I both see "Brock's" birth certificate, we'll settle up.

I'll just take your $10 now and save you the embarrassment.

I remember seeing Brock out on stories last summer when he was an intern at HOI. I'm pretty sure they don't change intern names to something more.........sexy

I pretty sure Brock is from Carlock and came to Peoria to be closer to home. I think his friends and family in the area can be trusted to vouch for him using his real name.

Plus, if you talked to the guy for even two minutes (instead of jumping to a conclusion about him based only on his name) it would be pretty obvious he isn't the kind of guy that would take some kind of air name.

Bill, I think you're going to lose this one.
