Pioneering News Agency Claims: Ahead of the curve on Bigfoot

The news agency, Wireless Flash News is calling it quits after 30 years. They are claiming they were ahead of the curve before Art Bell was talking about aliens and Bigfoot. They also claim to be the ones who made Ray Wallace famous. Below is an excerpt from the AOL news report.

"We redefined news prep by offering contact numbers to celebrities and to the characters we interviewed," Glynn said.

One of these so-called 'characters' was Ray Wallace, a man from Toledo, Wash., known as "the Father of Bigfoot" after he allegedly saw the hairy creature in 1958.

Glynn interviewed him many times over a 22-year period before Wallace died in 2002. As a result, Wallace was also interviewed by hundreds of other radio stations, TV shows and print media.

"When he died, The New York Times did a story on him," Glynn said. "Without FlashNews, he would have been remembered by a few Bigfoot researchers and the folks in Toledo, Wash. He had fun with it. When I called, his wife, Ulna, would say, 'He's not here,' and Ray would say, 'Now, Ulna, don't be saying that,' and he'd get on the phone."

Glynn points out the Flash -- as the staff referred to it -- wasn't just ahead of the curve on Bigfoot. The agency also reported on extraterrestrials long before Art Bell and the History Channel -- disseminating and popularizing much of the information that has become accepted as E.T. lore.

"At the time, we were owned by Copley Press, a very conservative news organization," Glynn said. "My bosses used to get calls from the Washington bureau claiming that the D.C. radio stations didn't want any of the 'serious' stories they were doing because they'd rather talk about Bigfoot and aliens."

Its Official Mating Season Begins for FL Bigfoot

Its the first week of May, and like clock-work we always get an updated report from Wireless Flash News Inc that it is mating season for the Florida Skunk-ape, Bigfoot's “smaller, smellier cousin.”

We did not repost the entire newsflash as we don't think its completely appropriate or in good taste. Eh Eh! Before you get the censorship police, we have provided a link to the whole article and you can wince at your own risk.

OCHOPEE, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Dave Shealy, an RV park owner in Ochopee, Florida, is the leading researcher of the Skunk Ape, Bigfoot’s “smaller, smellier cousin.”

He says there are seven to nine Skunk Apes currently living in the Everglades and right now is the best time to spot one because it’s their mating season.

Lately, he’s heard lots of campers report strange sounds coming from the swamps. He figures it’s the Skunk Ape’s mating call, which sounds like a low-pitched dove cooing...
