WGN America, a so-called superstation based in Chicago, carries a feature called "Sky Dives" that features Lee Abrams, described as "a chief pilot and food guy."
Abrams flies into a Midwestern city each week to sample local food in each city and then the footage is edited to 60-second spots that run through the weekend. Abrams' schedule includes flying into Louisville, Kansas City, Cincinnati, Minneapolis, Des Moines and Milwaukee.
Somehow, Western New York qualifies as a Midwestern city because Abrams is scheduled to come to Buffalo to check out Charlie the Butcher and Duff''s, presumably to sample beef on weck and chicken wings, respectively. The scheduled air date is Aug. 29.
Of course, WGN America isn't alone in thinking Western New York is a Midwestern city ,as well as a Northeastern city. What do you think? And if you've seen "Sky Dives" on cable or satellite TV, what do you think of it and Abrams?
