Anchor Gets Court Order Against Co-Host

Morning news anchor Amy DuPont of Quincy's WXOW La Crosse, Wis., has been granted a temporary restraining order against her now-former morning co-host, Meteorologist Zach Brown.

LA CROSSE, WIS. (AP) — A La Crosse anchorwoman has been granted a temporary restraining order against her morning co-host.

WXOW-TV morning news anchor Amy DuPont testified Tuesday she received 21 harassing e-mails over two years. She said the person, signed “Mario,” wrote that he was sick of hearing about her child and she was bad at her job.

La Crosse County sheriff’s Capt. Kurt Papenfuss says the e-mails were traced back to a computer in her co-host’s home.

Meteorologist Zach Brown’s roommate Jonathan Edwards admitted sending them. He said DuPont was mean to Brown but Brown never stuck up for himself. Brown said he knew his roommate was sending them and asked him to stop.

WXOW-TV news director Sean Dwyer said Brown no longer works at the station.

yeah, the “roommate” was tired to hearing about the woman’s child, and the meteorologist “never stuck for himself.” Sounds like a sordid sidebar. Coming soon, it sounds, to a market near you.

Yep, another dreadful reality show that will soon fill the screens and gobbled up by the most curiously interesting and shallow viewership on record. Cheers…Joe
