    I was hopeful that Geri would be a great addition to my mornings, but I find her silly and inappropriately chatty. All the side banter clutters up the true information. I find this is happening quite a bit on NPR where many of the commentators feel the need to be comedic or quippy. I prefer the BBC and wish we could get back to something more akin to true news.
