From a blog entry by Peggy Phillip, news director for WMC TV-5: "I hear WREG is now interviewing reporter candidates for their Germantown `bureau.' It will be housed in the strip mall at Poplar and Forest Hill-Irene along with the Germantown Appeal. Hopefully the TV stories will be just as frivolous and non-appealing as the G-town Appeal is now."

In a related story WREG weatherman Tim Simpson has a new weblog which, according to promotions, is, "full of pictures and [Tim's] own personal stories about the weather." WREG also pre-empted 60 Minutes II''s interview with the Italian journalist and former hostage, Giuliana Sgrena, who was shot by U.S. soldiers in Iraq to run a pre-recorded infomercial for St. Jude starring Marlo Thomas.
