A woman called Talkback 16 to complain "the weekend guy" is no longer giving out the Cash 5 payout, and she was going to discontinue watching unless the Cash 5 payout announcement was restored.
I'm assuming I'm "the weekend guy". The name is Andy.
I am genuinely sorry I have a dissatisfied customer. I really am. We're not in the business to upset viewers.
Here's the story. I dropped the Cash 5 payout announcement when the Pennsylvania Lottery turned Match 6 into a "seven days a week" game. The lottery segment of the weekend morning broadcasts became too long, and it was too many numbers coming at you too fast. I didn't think it was good television. You still get the lottery numbers, including the biggest payouts of the bunch--MegaMillions and PowerBall. The payouts for all the games, including Cash 5, scroll by on the "ticker" several times during the broadcast.
There is a reason for everything. Angry woman, please give "the weekend guy" another chance.
