Far too often it seems like the new kid to the news team gets relegated to the sports desk, a role many aren’t ready for. The results are wonky baseball updates and derivative versions of Champ Kind’s “Whammy!” It’s painful. Which is why News 2’s addition of Lainie Fritz as sports anchor has been such a pleasure to watch. Fritz knows her sports and reports the updates with a welcome energy. She avoids the cheesy cliches and actually made the updates on a recent Wando basketball game seem interesting. Well played, Fritz.
