2013 “Worst of OKC” Recap

10:15 AM EDT on September 3, 2013

That was fun.

After three weeks and over 40,000 votes (it was way less but I'm too lazy to add them all up), Patrick and I decided to recap at the worst things this town has to offer.

Here's our "2013 Worst of OKC" recap:

fox 25

Worst News Station:  KOKH FOX 25

Who knew less Speno would make anything worse? Apparently you all do not like this newscast, a whole bunch. That must mean you really hate things that are bad, so I can't blame you. - Joel

    • KOKH - Channel 25 (47%, 861 Votes)
    • KFOR - Channel 4 (24%, 446 Votes)
    • KWTV - Channel 9 (15%, 278 Votes)
    • KOCO - Channel 5 (14%, 241 Votes)

stan miller

Worst Anchorman: Stan Miller KWTV 9

In all fairness, Stan is better at reading a teleprompter than he is looking cool on a motorcycle. - Patrick

    • Stan Miller (35%, 507 Votes)
    • Paul Folger (28%, 398 Votes)
    • Kelly Ogle (18%, 254 Votes)
    • Wendell Edwards (11%, 158 Votes)

aaron tuttle 4

Worst Weatherperson: Aaron Tuttle

Ignore the fact that an emotional Facebook addict with flat abs won this category. How did 8% vote for Emily Sutton? They're probably the same people who laugh during Bambi. - Patrick

    • David Payne (11%, 216 Votes)

jim-traber-mazzios

Worst Sports Media Personality: Regular Jim Traber, WWLS The Sports Animal

This was the closest category. Regular Jim Traber edged his arch-enemy Jenni Carlson by 1% (30-votes). Please don't tell Jim about this. I don't want him chasing me down in his golf cart like I'm a Japanese pitcher and / or Mazzio's Pizza delivery guy who forgot extra ranch. - Patrick

Jack&Ron

Worst Morning Radio Crew: Jack & Ron 98.9 KISS FM

They've won "The Morning Zoo" category in the Gazette's "Best Of" and our "Worst Of" for two years in a row. With that being the case, you'd think they would be more entertaining. - Patrick

    • Joey & Heather (23%, 262 Votes)
    • Rick & Brad (22%, 252 Votes)

so-big-chief-mug

Worst Douchebag: Big Chief

So, apparently this guy's fans hit up several street racing message boards encouraging people to vote. Wait, let me re-phrase that. Apparently Big Chief posing as a fan hit up several message boards encouraging people to vote. On this site. For worst douchebag. On behalf of everyone who wanted Christina Fallin to finish second, we salute you. - Patrick

    • Big Chief (59%, 2,309 Votes)

Worst Person to Follow on Social Media: Abigail Ogle

She sure is a looker, that Abigail Ogle. Good thing I wrote a post allowing people to vote her the worst of something. At least we've gotten it out-of-the-way so any time we spend together won't be as weird and awkward. I'm kidding. It's gonna be stupid awkward. - Joel

    • Abigail Ogle (39%, 287 Votes)
    • Dean Blevins (28%, 207 Votes)
