Last weekend, The Bee published its annual People’s Choice Awards. At least one local celebrity felt jilted. After seeing the results, Tower/Downtown icon and internet “anchor” Chuck Leonard wrote to us demanding a recount.
It’s not something we have any control over, but hey …
There is absolutely no way that Warren Armstrong could have won this award. Did he make buttons that he passed out all over California? I think not. Did he have an awesome poster made by famous artist Aurora Pringle? No. Did he even beg for votes as I did? Probably not. My campaign manager (Kim Burly) worked tirelessly to assure my win and feels as slighted as I do. How could a TV news person possibly compete with an internet sensation like myself? I am sure that you will agree with me that there must have been a mistake somewhere along the way.
Your “Best Anchor” Chuck Leonard
Leonard currently hosts a show 4 p.m. Fridays on Central Valley Talk, but hints that he’ll be hosting a daily morning show on an unspecified TV channel starting in September. We wish him luck with the recount.
