I'm a consistent WCVB-watcher, and I'll vote for Ed, who's very good. Tough decision vs. Liz Brunner, and if Heather Unruh had been on the list, I might well have voted for her.

You are the reason I tune into channel 5 - you keep it fun, light and personable. Channel 5 and your team are not shock jocks and I appreciate that.
