It’s a bit of an apples to oranges comparison – one dude is sideline reporting…one dude is anchoring – but they are equally unfortunate performances. Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce to you the next Brian Collins, Mr. Charles Clinton:

Moving his notes? We’re lucky we didn’t get a Sue Simons moment (YouTube that if you’re not on board with the reference - NSFW).
The ineptness of his gang doesn’t excuse Charlie’s overall lack of reporting aptitude, but… Well, but nothing I suppose. The guy’s just plain old bad. His “Charles in Charge” segment on WOLV-Overtime isn’t doing him any favors, either:

And just for juxtaposition (and giggles), here’s Brian:
