Grant Rampy, KTLA News


I have a favor to ask if you live in the L.A. area...

Watch the KTLA 10pm news broadcast. Somewhere between 10:05 and 10:15, Hal Fishman will go to their Washington correspondent, Grant Rampy.

This isn't a commentary on Rampy's broadcasting skills; he's fine.

It's a comment on the way the guy says his name when he signs off.

Take a listen. It's bizzare.

He'll do an entire story without the slightest trace of an accent... and then he says his own name. It's tweaked. And has some un-placeable drawl.

"In Washington, Graaaaaaaaaannnnnt Raaaaaaaahmmmmpeeeeey, KTLA News."

Listen-- you'll see. I'm not crazy.

Do it again the next night, and THIS TIME, do me another favor: say, "Graaaaant Raaaampeeeey, KTLA News" along with the guy.

Hey, it always gives ME a giggle. It's a nightly ritual now. Even the wife gets in on the reindeer games.

Join in... it'll be our secret, "I'm as mad as hell..." club chant (except in a dorkier sort of way).

I've been in Chicago and Atlanta, watching their local newscasts, and Rampy is also part of their teams. He is syndicated and not unique to LA.

I think a lot of newscasters/reporters are trying to get some attention, and if they can't be good reporters, then they have to stand out with some irritating sign-off. KYW radio in Philly has 3 of the most obnoxious folks: Fred Sherman, grandfather of the irritating signoff ("I'm Fred Sherrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrman"), Amy Kaplan (who sounds like she's singing the news as opposed to reporting it), and Hadas Kuznits (who suddenly gets a burst of energy and SHOUTS her last name). These folks suck, and they want that little bit of extra attention...I guarantee you this happens all over the country.

Somebody had to say it: Hollywood Thoughts tackles a long-overdue media subject: the drawn-out way KTLA's Grant Rampy signs off his Washington reports.

We always wait for Gran Trampy's sign-off. It's funny!

So funny I am not the only one who thinks he growls his sign off! I like it. It's a catchy trademark, and anyway he's hot! Give the guy a break, he's great at what he does. Grant-call me.

Hey smitten, move over this man is hot!! So what he has an unique sign off, he's great and it'st getting him noticed and talked about. Keep on growling Grant!

I absolutely LOVE him. I get so happy when i hear " reporting from the white house" ....... and this is from NB , CT!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, we get him in Boston too on WLVI. He's annoying, though, tonight, there was a different syndicate reporter tonight...Chuck something who was even worse.

This is so heart-warming that I had to write. We have watched GRR-AAAANT RAAAAMPY for a long time on WGN-TV in the Chicago area. His sign-off has had us in hysterics for years! Because we have no life, we have made up an imaginary family for him...starting with his wife PEE-AAAAATY REEE-AAMPY. Kids,dogs, cats, etc. Really made the miles fly on that road trip!

This is so funny! I found your blog because I was sure that KTLA was misspelling his name and I typed Grant Rampy into google. It sounds like he says Grant Zrampy -- or Grants Srampy. It befuddles me every night and now I'm tickled to know that others are as taken with him as I am.

Doesn't Grant Rampy know how to pronounce his own name? Is it Granch Rampy,Grant Ranchy or Granch Ranchy?
We listen every night to hear how it's pronounced!

 
At 10:25 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I always call my husband to bed by saying "Honey you're going to miss Grrrannt Rammmpy". T

 
At 8:43 AM, Blogger A.M. said...

So does anyone really know why he says Granch Rampy? It has been driving me crazy for months. It's like when you get a song stuck in your head, I just really want to know.

 
At 1:26 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I don't really care why "Graaaanch Raaaampeee" pronounces his name that way (or why he doesn't instruct the news anchors how to pronounce it the way he does), I just want to know how I can get my husband to STOP parroting the pronunciation (with even more EMPHASIS than Grant himself) every dang night!

 
At 10:30 PM, Blogger BrookesMom said...

oh my gosh!!!!! This is so funny, just saw Grant on KTLA (L.A.) and thought I would Google him. I guess i'm not the only one that has noticed the way he pronounces his name and I guess i'm not the only one who thinks he is sssssssssssssssooooooooooooooo HOT!!

 
At 10:55 PM, Blogger Barbara said...

My husband and I also love Graaaaaant Rampy. We call it our "Grant Rampy Moment" and stop what we're doing to watch. Has anyone else noticed the little head-fake he does when he says his name?

Weight loss has become a well furnished business for many scrupulous people. Nowadays people have become very much beauty and skin conscious and as a result they are going for weight loss in huge numbers. Weight loss has become the main ingredient of beauty, smartness, and health. Thus looking into this growing demand for weight loss, there are many who take advantage and make it a business. There are fake organizations either provide fake medicines or fake trainers, and charge exorbitant amounts from the clients. So while going for weight loss it is very important to check the authenticity of the organization or the drugs.

My wife and I watch GR on WGN. Unfortunately we listen more to his sign off than his report. We have not seen him in a while?

"Desparately Seeking Grant"

 
At 8:40 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I think he's kind of toned the signoff down lately. I watch him on WGN in Chicago and I'll have to admit I'm not interested in his stories (he is a very good speaker) but I just wait for his signoff. He is nice looking and dresses very sexy and sharp. I just Googled him now after seeing him on the news about 1 hour ago. I was surprised I wasn't the only one who took note of his signoff.

So happy to find fellow Grant Rampophiles..... We're watching from Denver and we look forward to his sign-off every night. We've taken bets on his age. If anyone knows, please post....
