Naked weatherman

I suppose next they’ll say that sleeping with sources is a fireable offense, too. What are the chances my already questionable career will come to an end in such a lurid fashion?

weatherman.gifROANOKE, Va. (AP) — A WSLS-TV meteorologist was fired because is nude photo was posted on the Internet. The NBC affliate dismissed Jamey Singleton on Thursday after the photograph appeared on MySpace.com.
The station’s interim general manager, Shane Moreland, said in a statement that Singleton broke the morals clause of his contract, which stipulates that he must not be involved in anything deemed
“offensive or out of line with community standards.”

“What shocks and what offends — that’s really up to them,”
Singleton, 28, told The Roanoke Times. “I can’t blame them if … after everything that’s happened they said, ’That’s the straw that broke the camel’s back.”’
According to Singleton, the picture was taken as a joke a few months ago at a friend’s home, where he was getting ready for work. After going through treatment for heroin addiction he stopped
hanging out with some friends, including the one who posted the photo on MySpace on Tuesday, Singleton said. When Singleton heard about the picture, he notified MySpace and the picture was removed within an hour. However, the photo was e-mailed to several of Singleton’s
co-workers and to Moreland, Singleton said.

    Community standards? So … they don’t get naked in Roanoke? I think I remember that Mandy the Obit Writer lives in Virginia, I’l like to know what she thinks of this.
    And Mark, I wouldn’t think that meteorologists have “sources” in the way that crime reporters do, so maybe you’re OK on that “front”. Just check your morals clause. You might be OK.

    Hmm, okay to be a recovering heroin addict, but to try to fix the mistakes that were made while recovering? Maybe the weatherman looks better naked than the guy who fired him

    I’d accept anything as long as reporters told us the naked truth, instead of gossip. I remember the day when there were investigative journalist instead of tabloid rumor mongers.

    It’s raining men, Hallelujah?

    Tall blond dark and mean, rough and tough and strong and lean. Now there’s an image, thanks K2.

    Mandy lives in Yorktown, I believe. Far from Roanoake. I lived down there for a while. A lotta those whacky southerners, you’d rather see them naked than draped in the confederate flag. Then again, maybe not.

    Test, test, test.

    Okay, guess I haven’t been SPAMMED. Nadine, thanks for the pictures. They made my day. As for naked weathermen, I can’t think of a single weatherman around here that I’d like to see naked.

    Now that I have the required gallon of coffee on board I realize that I was in Roanoke the summer before last. I saw one attractive person, at the zoo, but mainly it was … well … “characters welcome”. Though at Virginia Tech, not far away, there were lots of people who would have probably looked just fine naked.

    How bout those Vikings?

  11. AO said,

    How about those Patriots?

  12. K2 said,

    I am beyond disgust with my Vikings, thank you very much, MT. How many games (minus the Patriots trouncing) can we give away via dumb-ass mistakes. Thank goodness for drugs. . . . .

    MT must be rubbing it in to K2 since the Vikings lost today. It looks like the Ptriots played a good game today. Maybe they finally have everything clicking and everyone else needs to watch out? The game that I want to see is coming up next. It will be interesting to see which team implodes on national tv.

    On another note, is anyone suffering from repeated worm intrusions? For the last few days, I’ve been getting multiple pop ups saying that a worm intrusion had been blocked.

  14. Mainetarr said,

    I am just ribbing K2. Yeah, I missed the Pats game, I am watching my Colts beat Dallas. Too bad about Donovan McNabb and Brett Farve. Tough day for quarterbacks. Brady really needed this win after two not so great games.

    You guys getting ready for Turkey Day? Motor Booty Affair is playing at Shakers the night before, I am damn tempted to go. Oh Nadine??? You in???

  15. Linda said,

    I didnt hear that McNabb got hurt … too bad

  16. Linda said,

    No worm intrusions here that I know of, Bobbie

  17. AO said,

    Where’s Shakers?

    I’ve just been reading the b section on line, and I hope you all saw the GREAT questions to “Male Call: Advice From A Guy” this week. Here’s a good one:

    Q: What do you do to impress a girl without it being too noticeable and too weird?

    The answer, summarized, was: (1) confidence; (2) humor; (3) being able to lift a Mini-Cooper off the ground by its rear axle.

    What do you think?

  19. Bobbie said,

    It looks like y our Colts have been defeated today, MT. The Cowboys played an awesome game and deserved to win.

  20. Mainetarr said,

    Yup, the Colts got beat. Can’t win em all, just 9 out of 10.

  21. LaFlamme said,

    Repeated worm intrusion would make a great name for a band. Or a porn star.

  22. K2 said,

    The Colts’ loss prevented me from winning a hundred bucks. Crap. I just couldn’t pik the ‘Boys, since they had let me down several times already this season.

    Favre will be all right, but McNabb’s done for the year and then some. Two seasons in a rwo now for him. His glory days may very well be numbered.

    And speaking of losers like the Vikings, d’you here about Michael (Kramer) Richards’ racist tirade at a comedy club in LA the other day? Even Paul Rodriguez, who was there, said he went over the line. CNN.com has a video about it. What an ass.

    I work for a weather company.. I see meteorologists all day, every day… thankfully, none of them are naked.. T’would not be my idea of a pretty site… In case I don’t get back before Thurs.. everyone have a wonderful holiday..I’ll be working, but its time and a half, and they even feed us.
