The folks at WTNH in Connecticut are some considerate people. Case in point:

How kind of them to put the phonetic spelling of Mario’s (MAH-ree-oh) name in there.

Of course, I shouldn’t make fun. When I was younger, I called him Mario Leh-MYOO-ex. Honest.

I was the laughing stock of my family that year. It is exceptionally sad because I was 17 at the time.

    They post the AP’s broadcast (radio and television) newsfeed, which includes the phonetic pronunciations of proper names.

    Boy KGB, you just suck the fun out of everything don’t you?

    Sorry, PittGirl. Just don’t want you to be embarrassed.

    Fortunately, there’s enough other inanity out there…
