Rajah Maples is a tremendous boost for WGEM.. She has a wealth of experience and excellent on-air presence. She raises the bar for TV reporting in Quincy. Very smart move for WGEM.

Rajah is not only a great professional, but she is a very nice person. That is a huge part of a broadcaster’s success in Quincy. Viewers want to feel a personal connection with the people they watch. Rajah has that magic. 

It’s a loss that Tony Cornish is gone. He presented sports with knowledge and energy. Good luck to him.

As for KHQA, their Quincy-based staff are great people, but they can’t overcome the rotating out-of-town anchor thing. It doesn’t work. Who are these people? The reporting situation is just as bad.

Rajah? KHQA’s loss is a big gain for WGEM and TV journalism in Quincy.

When it comes to local news coverage, Muddy River News remains the gold standard.
