I was wondering how many people worked at radio stations that carried news from the ABC Information Network in the 80's and 90's. Does anyone remember the morning news anchor, Joe Templeton? I had such a fascination with him, mainly because of his deep voice and his rapid-fire delivery. I mean, he could rattle off news stories clearly and understandably, without stumbling. (Maybe that's why ABC gave him the morning slot on that network.) What used to bug me, though, is that all my program directors (as well as some of my listeners) used to chew me out considerably for reading my newscasts (or weather and community announcements) with much speed. I would get told time and time again that "You are not running a race. Slow the hell down!!" Yet, in my mind, I always wondered, "then how does someone like Joe Templeton manage to keep his job with an employer like ABC if rapid reading of news is so against the principles and ethics of announcing?" At any rate, I was sad when I tuned into a St. Louis radio station that carried Information and found he was no longer on there. He's been dead for over ten years now, but I'll never forget listening to him in my early days of radio and being fascinated by his delivery. Anyone else out here remember Joe?
