Fly on the Wall 1432 

Miles Files

This isn't fresh news, but Fly on the Wall would be remiss in not reporting that WMC news reporter Jason Miles is leaving Memphis to take a job at KHOU-TV in Houston, a top-10 media market. Miles' sometimes over-the-top behavior — like chest-bumping cops on Beale Street — and his never-ending stream of accidentally hilarious tweets have earned numerous mentions in this column since he first arrived on the Memphis scene back in 2004. We'll miss how Miles would fearlessly crawl under things (like cars) and through things (like pet doors) to illustrate his stories. We'll miss harkening back to his time as Memphis' "secret swab" tester, checking for fecal matter in places like grocery stores and public restrooms. Most of all we'll miss the reporter who fired off the greatest news tweet of all time: "Man murdered in Marshall Co. was double amputee. Half brother in custody." But was his brother armed? The public remains stumped.

It's a Sign

Your Pesky Fly is happy to be back in Memphis having spent the past two weeks covering the political conventions in Cleveland and Philadelphia. Our favorite protester at the DNC was the protester who was protesting protesters.
