Fox gets it right...a rarity in promoting Morlock

One of the good guys gets the right call

It came over in an e-mail and then across another media blog, but for once all the news was good regarding the local sports media.

In an era of cutbacks, layoffs, buyouts and retention re-negotiations at almost ever media outlet, print and television combined, someone finally made the right decision.

FOX23 News producer and anchor Scott Morlock was finally promoted to the weekend anchor spot, vacated by another good guy, Brent Martineau...at the end of February.

Fox23 was in its own turmoil with changes above in general managers and a change of ownership, among other things. So rather than make a move and promote the guy in front of them, the brain trust decided to review tens of 100s of tapes to see if there was someone else that may be a better choice...

Hmmmmm....nope.

Yep, go with the guy who has been in town for the past 11 years and worked his way up from the sports video ranks into that of sports producer, reporter and been the interim weekend sports anchor and co-host of Fox 23s popular Fast Track racing program.

FOX23 hands down is the viewing choice for local sports fans with their Fast Track and High School Sports Show during the scholastic season, everyone else has either been behind or attempted to copy their on-going product and Scott has been a key to each of these successful events.

The problem now is..."Who am I going to talk to Friday night's at Albany-Saratoga Speedway?" Damn promotion...

Congrats Scott.
