WOWT Anchor Shows Off Tattoo

When thinking about this week’s cover story in the City Weekly on the local tattoo craze, I remembered hearing WOWT morning news co-anchor Jim Siedlecki mention recently on the air that he had a couple of tattoos. Curious, I asked him about them.

Siedlecki said he had two, one that he could show – a New York Yankees icon on his shoulder. The other one is private, he said. Originally from Queens, N.Y., Siedlecki joined WOWT in 2005.

A die-hard Yankees fan, Siedlecki got the tattoo after New York won the World Series in 2000.

“They beat the Mets that year so it was extra special to beat the crosstown rivals,” Siedlecki said.

Surprised that Mr. Clean Cut Anchorman has tattoos? Well, that’s not all. Apparently, this Queens native was quite the party animal in college, complete with ear piercings.

“I was a pretty decent student, but nothing like my straight-A co-anchor Malorie (Maddox),” he said.

And for the record: “I don’t regret the tattoo. I wear my passion on my sleeve ... literally.”

Boy looks like a linebacker. Did he play ball in college?

Weird

Considering anybody with a Yankee tattoo is obviously a corporate hack, the other one must be a Gulf Oil symbol.

Gross and weird. Of course, it's not any worse than all of those pregnant female TV "reporters" (aka entertainers) showing off their stomachs. Icky, icky, icky.

No this is still weird bc having a baby is normal.

Wow, nice to see that some of Omaha is still in the mindset that tattoos and/or baby bellies are abnormal or icky.

How (not) shocking.

What's icky about it? Seems those of us without tattoos are in the minority anymore. Why would anyone be up in arms about Jim's tattoo? It just appears to be the norm anymore.

Why isn't Minge's latest media column up on omahacityweekly.com?? The last one posted is the one about car dealership ads.

Siedlecki is a poser. The dude is from Queens! Probably grew up a Mets fan until they Yanks cleaned their clocks in the Subway series.

The guy is a complete dork...period. Regardless of the tattoo, that only confirms it.

I heard the next tattoo will be of his new girlfriend, Abby Fukinugly.

Are we positive this guy isn't queer? Because good God almighty, he sure looks and acts like it.

And if he is, which he isn't, is there something wrong with that?

I saw Siedlecki at the Reruns R Fun sale in Omaha recently. He's HOT -- tall and definitely not gay. His wife looked emaciated though!
