Coverage You Can't Count On



WCTV, the CBS affiliate in Tallahassee, wants to set the record straight. On its 6 p.m. Eyewitness News Wednesday, the station ran a story on Rep. Jeff Kottkamp being selected as Charlie Crist's running mate. However, WCTV (slogan: "Coverage You Can Count On") ran footage of the wrong handsome middle-aged man with graying hair.

That would be, uh, Steve Bousquet of the St. Petersburg Times. A contrite co-anchor Julie Montanaro immediately phoned The Buzz to apologize for this small case of mistaken identity. (WCTV ran video of reporters boarding a plane for the trip to Cape Coral where Kottkamp was introduced).
