‘Sadness Town!’ plays terrible music for laughs

Local comedian David Tveite is sending-up Linkin Park, Godsmack and every other awful band you loved in high school.

Looking for a race less challenging than a marathon?

Forget 26.2 or 13.1. Try .10 or .05 if you want to participate in a race without months (or even minutes) of training.

Doug Culver officially unveiled as WJLA’s new news director

WJLA, Washington’s Allbritton-owned ABC affiliate station, made it official Tuesday: Doug Culver has been hired as vice president of news.

 Culver, who last week reportedly resigned his gig as news director at the Scripps-owned Tampa, Fla. ABC affiliate station, is replacing Alex Likowski at WJLA.

Likowski, a nearly 20-year Allbritton veteran, had been the station’s news director for the past six years; he also was news director at the company’s NewsChannel 8.

Culver previously worked at WJLA in 2008, as a freelance exec producer, before landing the Tampa gig. Before that, he was assistant news director and managing editor at KIRO on Seattle, and exec producer at the NBC-owned KNBC in Los Angeles; in both jobs, he worked for Bill Lord, who is now WJLA general manager. In Tuesday’s announcement, Lord called Culver a “newsroom leader.”

“There’s no more exciting place to work and live than the D.C. area, especially in an election year,” Culver noted in Tuesday’s announcement.
