"The people you know," are apparently one less now. And "the news you trust," is not telling us why Jim Flowers was kicked to the curb.

"Jim Flowers is on vacation," was the standard reply for a few days on the station's Facebook page (which banned MavBridget). But now, there's no response to inquiries. And the questions are coming fast and frequent now that Tom Becka broke the news of Flowers' supposed firing earlier this week.

Thoughts? Any questions?

McPike goes to mornings starting June 10.

It's official... Smilin' Jim will be appearing at 5, 6, and 10 pm weeknights starting tomorrow.

I wonder what happens to Ryan McPike. Will they have both on-air on the same newscast, like co-anchors? Does McPike move to noon only?

I blamed Jim Flowers for channel 6 being MIA on that Millard tornado five years ago, but it happened again last weekend. When the weather service issued that tornado warning for Douglas County last Monday morning, it took channel 6 over a half-hour to break into programming. Considering this is the same station that ran a story in March about how daylight savings time led to more snow melt, maybe the problems at channel Sux was more than just Flowers...or maybe in spite of Smilin' Jim...

Ummm...yes... I thought that was the worst kept secret in town, but apparently not.

Flowers contract with channel 6 contained a 6 month no-compete clause, so he's unable to appear on channel 3 until June.

Wonder if old Jim will be joining the local CBS weather group on 1 June to replace the ? they've been showing for the last few weeks.

WOWT is now running commercials for their "Shred Day" on Thursday.

It's a 15 second spot that shows someone in their studio running photocopies of the KM3 "silhouette with a big question mark" logo into a paper shredder.

One would think this ends the rumor of the prostitution sting as all but debunked. I mean, I can't imagine that KM3 would be dumb enough to sign him to a contract if there was something still floating around out there. Of course, when you're as cemented into 3rd place as KM3 has been for years, maybe you're desperate enough to try anything.

Might be a happy ending to this story after all.....

Channel 3 has been advertising somebody "familiar" is joining their weather team. Is "Smilin' Jim" heading to his third Omaha station?

Let's break down Mr. Flowers' carefully-worded response:
quote:
It's time to set the record straight. I have never been interviewed by the Omaha police department concerning any sting operation, past, present, or on going. I have never been interviewed by the FBI concerning any sting operation, past, present or on going. I have never visited a massage parlor of any kind. I have never spoken with a grand jury concerning any sting operation of any kind.

1. Omaha police typically don't interview "johns" who are ticketed (not arrested) in prostitution stings.

2. The FBI is not going to interview him either (see No. 1.)

3. The business where he was arrested could be characterized as something other than a "massage parlor."

4. Typically, grand juries do not speak with people who are part of the investigation.
SecretAgentMav Posted - 12/27/2012 : 10:03:09 PM
If the grand jury has not come back yet -- it is an active investigation. Considering the subject matter... the names are being kept sealed, so nobody gets implicated -- until they indict.

...Last night I had the strangest dream...
Pants Posted - 12/27/2012 : 6:11:55 PM
Usually ongoing investigations aren't susceptible to FOIA. It could compromise an investigation. Even if so, I've heard it takes weeks for that stuff.
Hoffin205 Posted - 12/27/2012 : 5:55:49 PM
Aren't police, or FBI if that's the case in this case, records public records that can be FOIA'd? Certainly someone would have asked for them by now. I suppose they could have the names redacted, or if the johns haven't actually been formally arrested yet perhaps the names haven't been 'logged' in a method that could made available to the public?

Interesting...They did have a comedic bit on Unsportsmanlike Conduct last week that poked fun at the rumor, so it's definitely possible he knows something we don't.

I'm not claiming that Jim is innocent. In fact, I don't have any special fondness for Jim Flowers or WOWT. I would just like to hear something confirmed before people start throwing him under the bus.
West O Mike Posted - 12/26/2012 : 11:36:43 PM
For what it's worth, Mike'l Severe says that there are some big names that are being looked at by a grand jury:

quote:
Can confirm there were several members of local law enforcement & at least 2 media members involved in an FBI headed massage parlor sting.


https://twitter.com/MikelSevere/status/281511228227063808

quote:
The actual sting happened earlier this year. Names of the "johns" have not been released for some reason. A Grand Jury does have the case.


https://twitter.com/MikelSevere/status/281511950112919552

He doesn't say that Smilin' Jim is involved in this case, though. Just that two media members have been implicated.

SecretAgentMav Posted - 12/26/2012 : 7:53:35 PM
I'm not saying he is guilty. I am only repeating what I heard at work, from a source.

...Last night I had the strangest dream...
Hoffin205 Posted - 12/26/2012 : 6:42:06 PM
During the 6PM newscast tonight the anchor read a statement from channel management that said that Flowers' contract would not be renewed, and thanked Flowers for his service to the station.

BIGHUSKERMAV Posted - 12/26/2012 : 5:48:55 PM
Well, if he's formally charged then I might consider it. Until then, I would rather presume that somebody is innocent until they are proven guilty, especially if no charges have been brought up. That seems to be a concept this country (and especially the internet) forgot a long time ago.
SecretAgentMav Posted - 12/26/2012 : 4:02:04 PM
I would drop the conspiracy, had I not heard from a source inside Omaha police concerning this subject.

...Last night I had the strangest dream...
BIGHUSKERMAV Posted - 12/26/2012 : 09:10:24 AM
Also, he posted this under WOWT's facebook post:

Hopefully, people will drop the stupid conspiracy theory crap.

Posted at 5:30 a.m. (the day after Christmas) on WOWT's Facebook page:

WOWT has informed Jim Flowers that it does not intend to enter into a new agreement for his services when his current agreement expires on December 31, 2012. WOWT appreciates Jimís contributions to WOWT and thanks him for his many years of service.
SecretAgentMav Posted - 12/19/2012 : 4:52:52 PM
One rumor I heard involved a red light.

...Last night I had the strangest dream...
nousefouraname Posted - 12/19/2012 : 12:41:22 PM
I'm hearing that Jim was getting some consultation work done on his high pressure system and it didn't work out too well.
BIGHUSKERMAV Posted - 12/19/2012 : 11:10:54 AM
Not gonna repeat the rumors, but it is the #1 page on google if you search for "jim flowers"
nousefouraname Posted - 12/19/2012 : 07:11:26 AM
Heard some interesting rumors on why Flowers might be gone. Don't know if they are true, and don't know if we'll ever find out.
Pants Posted - 12/17/2012 : 4:57:56 PM
I don't really find any of the news anchors around here that attractive. Maltard kind of bothers me.

If AJ can do better, he's gonna have to get VERY creative...that Malorie Maddox comment was hilarious while also very truthful!

You can do better than that, AJ.

Maolorie Maddox is kinda hot.

Just an observation
