Never let it be said that the suits at Sinclair aren't focusing on the important issues.
Apparently, someone at corporate wants to tighten things up at WOAI in San Antonio. They instructed the local managers to put an end to people calling primary anchor Randy Beamer, "Beamer" on the air. Never mind he's the most popular and most tenured anchor in the market and has been known as "Beamer" for 30 years. Here's the memo:

I want tomake sure we’re referring to Randy as “Beamer” internally only – not on the air. Please make sure you refer to him as “Randy” or “Randy Beamer” on the air.
If you have any questions, let me know.

Once Beamer, er Randy is referred to by his first name on a regular basis, we're sure WOAI will shoot up in the ratings.
