    She was reporting on a diver who died while competing in an event at Dean's Blue Hole in the Bahamas. At first she confused the name of the place with the diver and said his name was "Dean Blue'. Then she changed her mind and said she thought his last name might be Dean. After an uncomfortable silence while she silently read the story (clearly for the first time) she figured out that Dean and Blue were referring to the place. Finally at the very end she blurted out the dead guy's correct name. Pretty sad that she doesn't read the stories in advance or even know what they're about. If anyone else was that lazy and unprepared she'd have plenty to say about it.

    instead of improving as a broadcaster over time she actually has gotten worse. it must be contagious over there.

    As Kaplan once pointed out on backoffice radio, her workflow is basically an intern prints out the popular stories off yahoo news and she just goes through circling what is interesting to her and throws the rest on the floor. And when she was sitting at home getting "cured" then captain dennis was doing the printout jockeying and answering emails for her.

    She definitely does not pre-read shit because you dont fuck up stories that bad if you have a basic understanding of them ahead of time.

    Speaking of fuck ups, Howard said the movie studio sent over a copy of HomeFront which he loved.

    "Jason Straham kills all kinds of bad guys"

    Robin: "Isn't Kate Bosworth in that movie too?"

    Howard: "Kate Bosworth? Which one is she Robin? Was she in that ship movie? Titanic?"

    Robin: "No Howard, that was Kate Winslett"

    :facepalm:

    In the same newscast today Robin read about veteran TV shows that were performing poorly in the ratings this season. Howard perked up with great interest -- misery loves company, after all -- and Robin read off a list of names, including The Voice. Howard interrupted and said there's no way The Voice should be on that list, because it's still a huge show. Robin tried to recover her fumble by reading the rest of the sentence, which said a different show was doing poorly despite having The Voice as its lead. What followed sounded like a continuing education class for illiterate adults. She read the article not only like it was her first time reading it, but like it was her first time reading aloud, ever. There were so many pauses between words that I thought my app was freezing up.

    You have to wonder why she even does this story considering AGT Stern was a key demo killer.

    It's watching elderly people dance, they get more and more awkward as the years go by. Robin was always talentless, but she's becoming more so as she ages. God I hate her.

    She was also talking about how great boardwalk empire was last night but couldn't get Chaulky White's first name correct. I can't remember how she mangled Chaulky but it was pretty bad.

    For $5 Million a year, is it asking too much to look over the articles before you read them, as opposed to reading them for the first time when you read them 'on air' ?

    Listening to the "show" is like listening to a coffin.

    I usually skip her news.
    She is the worst part of the show by far

    No worries this is just her character on the show.
