Last November, we started a weekly feature (that we forgot about for a couple of months rating local media personalities. As of last week's three-fer, twenty-five members of the media have received a thumb-up or down from our discerning readers. The results are in the graphic below.
Not surprisingly, Joleen Chaney, the reigning #1 on our Hottest Women in the Oklahoma Media, is pacing the field with a blistering 95% approval rating. On the other end of the spectrum is Oklahoman writer Jenni Carlson whose writing makes us all want to hurt ourselves.
In between there were a few surprises. For instance, Jim Traber, who loves this website and checks it daily for material, was liked by nearly a quarter of our readers. I know he has a pathetic little website, a pathetic little radio show, and a pathetic little twitter account, but I assumed they were popular for the same reason people like to check out freak shows at carnivals...not because people actually like him. Good for him, he only comes in second-to-last, a status he'll probably use in his ongoing feud with Jenni Carlson.
OETA's laid off personalities George Tomek and Ross Dixon both landed in the top-6. Google demographics have missed our popularity with septugenarians.
Our readers have spoken on the need for more meteorologists with two X chromosomes. Emily Sutton landed in a tie for #2 with a 90% approval rating.
Lauren Richardson, a former Ogle Madness champion, wound up with a pedestrian 68% rating.
