John Becker of WBIR Ain’t From Around Here and After Tonight Ought To Go Back

Tonight in “anchoring” the story on WBIR about State Representative and former Chief Deputy of Knox County Property Assessor Parkey Strader. Becker called him Parker Strader. Parkey’s name is Park M. “ParkeyStrader.

Parkey was first elected as Knox County’s Property Assessor in the early 70’s and served until 8/31/2000. He was elected as State Representative in 2004. For Becker to butcher the name of Strader is inexcusable.

WBIR should have Seth Andrews as the Anchor. Whatever happened to Seth anyway?
