Fly on the Wall 1503 

Dammit, Gannett

It's nice to see Memphis' daily newspaper of record, The Commercial Appeal, honoring Memphis businesses and highlighting all the best places to work in a hard-working town.

But wouldn't it be even nicer for all the winners if the plaques they were awarded had a picture of the Memphis skyline on them, instead of the Nashville skyline?

Oh, well, it's the thought that counts, and at least they got the right state. And a bridge.

The face of Memphis TV news is changing. Last week WMC-TV's longtime consumer advocate Andy Wise announced he would be leaving his post effective December 15th.

In a teary goodbye on Facebook Live, Wise said he was leaving to pursue a lifelong dream of living on a beach. He also spoke extensively about plans for a marketing and consumer advocacy venture called Wise Choices.
