Former NBC News and CBS News correspondent Ed Rabel, is news once again in Charleston, WV, at least on one local TV station.
Rabel, who is running for Congress, had complained that managers at WCHS, the ABC affiliate in Charleston, told staffers not to cover Rabel’s campaign. That may have been payback for this 2013 op-ed Rabel penned in the Charleston Gazette in which he called local newscasts “a colossal waste of time.”
Well now the MorganCountyUSA website reports WCHS mentioned Rabel’s candidacy on Monday’s 5:30 newscast:
On the segment, WCHS TV newsman Kennie Bass reported on the campaign ads being run by the candidates in the second Congressional district race — Nick Casey (D), Alex Mooney (R) and Ed Rabel (I).
Late last week, WCHS news director Matt Snyder went on defense saying Rabel wasn’t being snubbed.
