My seventh favorite philosopher/theologian Desiderus Erasmus famously said, “In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.” And in that spirit, charisma-challenged former 9News anchor Bob Kendrick has made the move to Canada. Kendrick, whose professional obituary by Westword’s Michael Roberts described him as “steady, reliable and dull,” has landed as a reporter and occasional weekend anchor at CHEK News in Vancouver.
Joanne Ostrow at the Denver Post throws a little love at the highly regarded yet lowly rated KMGH/Channel 7 news team:

If you were in Denver in the late 1990s, you likely remember the train wreck that was Jamie White of Alice 105.9’s “Frosty, Frank & Jamie” morning show. So although it is not that surprising to learn that White has been charged with a felony, it is somewhat surprising that it took a decade to finally happen. Bill Husted at the Denver Post has the details.
