Dropping Anchor

When is CBS 6 going to find somebody willing to sit next to Liz Bishop? In recent years the slot has looked more like an ejection seat than an anchor chair ---and there are no shortage of stories about Liz's less than sunny disposition.
Who would want that job, anyway? It may well be that the age of the anchor is over. Look at WNYT. It doesn't seem like they've suffered ill-effects from the departures of Chris Kapostasy and Ed Dague, and allowing for decling news viewership, their numbers are actually up. That's the sort of evidence that can't be good news for anybody who fronts a newscast.
So who will be WRGB's next male anchor? Someone who doesn't mind on-set chemistry that includes a dose of hydrochloric acid.
