    Default Nadine Wimmer, please stop being awesome all the time

    This thread is for fans of Nadine Wimmer. All things Dini are welcome.....background information, favorite pics, humorous anecdotes, humanist stories, tastefully worded adult-themed observations, etc.

    She is wearing a rather sultry all black number tonight on the evening news. Kind of a "Haunted House" chic look. Rowr!

    I believe she is a Ute grad. Can anyone confirm?

    Olympus High School and Utah. They were in my stake. Dini is several years older than I, but I knew her two younger sisters well. Wonderful family. Her dad catered my wedding reception. He was insufferable, but the kids were cool.

    Her professional backstory is cool. IIRC, she was pretty much told she didn't have the talent to be in front of the camera, let alone an anchor. She practiced for hours and hours after work to perfect her style and when an opportunity arose, she stepped in and never looked back.

    I've got to agree.

    Dini is a sweetheart. Her my wife's cousin is married her husband's cousin. She's a decent volleyball player and isn't afraid to challenge anyone to a game.

    Look at the SIZE of those front teeth. You said she was married?

    Her ascendency at KSL coincided with the ouster of Ruth Todd. Ruth was a talented anchor with a powerful control over her facial expressions and God-given talent to emote on cue when commanded by the TelePrompTer. All the signs of a good news anchor. She was a good foil to the God of Utah News, Dick Norse.

    Well contract time came around and Ruthie got a little uppity. Women can't do that when they work for The Corporation. It seems Ruthie felt her five years in the anchor chair next to His Holiness, Mr. Norse, qualified her for equivalent pay and airtime. Never mind the fact that Norse had occupied the anchor chair for over three decades. She was denied, so she began to take out her frustrations on the crew, and even the Norse God himself.

    Finally he had all he could stand and gave management and ultimatum: either she goes, or I go.
    Management considered their options, and mulled putting Norse out to pasture while appearing 'progressive' by having a female lead anchor.

    The news crew was terrified. The thought of KSL without Dick Norse, and with the Queen Bee Ruthie was horrifying. They made tee-shirts that said, "I would rather be Ruth-less than Dick-less!"

    In the end, the cocksure Management decided to be Ruth-less over the other option.

    Dini was a daytime co-anchor at the time. She is tough and professional on air, but is a decent person off air who treats the crew like real, valuable people. And there was much rejoicing in the DDD house.

    I LOVE this feel good story that reflects very positively on Dini.

    I don't know Dick Norse. Dini does her show with Bruce something or other.

    Jeez, read a little more carefully, mon ami, I said she played a lesbian; I have no idea if the actress or the Wimmer is a lesbian. You are quite smitten.

    She was just an average, everyday, overnight success who knows the secret: 'Overnight Success' requires at least a decade of dedication, perserverence, and sweat equity to put herself in the position to be 'the right person' at 'the right place' and at 'the right time'.

    One of my good friends is married to Ruth Todd's younger sister so I heard a different angle on her leaving KSL. The story was that she asked to be paid similar to what a male co-anchor would make but was refused because "she didn't need to make that much because her husband was also working". She is still doing work for The Corporation, volunteering at the conference center for Music and the Spoken Word.

    Nadine Wimmer is active LDS so I can assure you she is not a lesbian.

    I think there was some initial confusion as a result of some pics floating around the Internet of Nadine wearing red jeans/denim shirt and playing with horses. The pics are admittedly a little bit Indigo Girls but that is how Dini rolls...she wears whatever she wants and doesn't live life with regrets. In other words: sexiness. With class.

    She is very nice. Her sister-in-law is my mom's neighbor and close friend, so I heard her side of the story as well. My writeup above was from the POV of the crew. They like Nadine very much but hated working with Ruth.

    The truth lies somewhere in between.

    Nourse was the face of Utah news for as long as I remember. He, Paul James, and Bob Welti (after his recruitment from Ch 2) were the Holy Trinity of news teams in SLC.

    Bob Welti was surpassed by Mark Snowbank, er Eubanks in the 70s. They were both clowns, in my estimation.

    I meant Eubanks-he was recruited from Ch 2 to replace Welti. Eubanks' son now does the weather and has perpetuated his father's white sport coat.
