BOZEMAN, Mont. -

A morning news anchor at WGN Chicago doesn't appear to be a big fan of the Treasure State.

In a Monday morning spring travel segment, morning news anchor Robin Baumgarten gave travel adviser Kendra Thornton an audible "UGH!" when Thornton begins talking about Montana as a Spring travel destination.

You can watch the video here, the "UGH!" comes between 1:18 and 1:23 on the video.

The segment highlighted camping and activities at the "Paws Up" luxury resort in the Greenough area east of Missoula.

It's not the first time someone in the Chicago media has expressed distaste with Big Sky Country.

Back in 2010 Chicago Tribune reporter Barbara Brotman slammed Montana after a travel campaign put iconic scenery on trains and buses all over the city.
