It must be because of the traffic reporting/breaking news team in Chopper 8. :-)

Wow, I don't watch channel 8 for anything except Big Brother in the summer. I prefer channel 7 for news.

They seem to consistently win the ratings race all the time. Clearly, they're doing something right.

KGTV has a broken traffic report ticker. It's been repeating the same bad info for 3 years now.
same conditions each morning...nobody notices.

nobody notices because nobody cares. No one relies on radio or TV anymore for traffic news. There wont be any broadcast reporters on the air in two years or less. Just like KFI doesn't have farm reports every morning at 6 a.m. either. Things move on.
