Congrats To Bob and Tom

Bob and Tom... I made a funny.

From Bill Flick's column in the Pantagraph:

So TV-25's Tom McIntyre enters his 32nd year at WEEK next month -- and he's not even the dean of the area's most familiarized facial mugs.
That honor goes to Channel 31's Bob Larson who, although an anchor only since 1990, celebrates his 34th year at the station this month.
"Was there TV before Larson?" jokes WMBD General Manager Kevin Harlan.
Apparently there was. As Larson put it, "Believe it or not, I do remember life before the 10 p.m. news."
That's a video shot of Larson, a Morris native on his way to turning 56, as he appeared shortly after he joined the station in 1971.
Among Larson's duties when he started: Hosting the "Dialing for Dollars Movie" afternoons.
That's back before there were 150 channels with movies.
We won't even go into the fact no one "dials" on a phone anymore either.

Not true. I dial on my phone. As do many others.
