And Now Contestant Number 4........

Remember former KATV anchor Krista Platzer? Well she is one of 5 finalists in an American Idol anchor pick contest, all vying for a permanent spot at the anchor desk at WFXR/WJPR, Fox 21/27 in Roanoke, Virginia. The article jokes," There won't be a bathing suit competition or a tiara." The article says Platzer hails from Global Television in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. An e-mailer wonders, " Why she doesn't list KATV?"

Platzer was canned at KATV in 2004 after only months at the station.

The whole hiring and firing of Krista was another classy act by KATV.

I bet they try this anchor thing to find the next daybreak host when the chick-fest fails.

"The whole hiring and firing of Krista was another classy act by KATV."

Give me a freaking break. All anyone EVER said about Krista when she was on air at 7 was COMPLAIN, COMPLAIN, COMPLAIN. SO-- they got rid of her and what do you do? COMPLAIN, COMPLAIN, COMPLAIN. Quit your 7 nitpicking, you jealous freak.

I said the "whole" hiring and firing of Krista was a classy act. I agree they should have never hired her to begin with. Did they do focus groups? Who's the mental giant that thought a Canadian would fit in Arkansas?

That would be the man who loves blonds. Only blonds can be on tv.

The three most important qualities for a female anchor are:

1 -- be smokin' hot.

2 -- be able to read.

3 -- refer to #1.

Let's get the record straight, Krista Platzer was a fake ugly B-itch. If you ever saw her without make up and the rightlight you would freak out at how ugly she was. By the way, she has been fired more than once from an anchor position, what is amazing is fools still hire her. It should also be added that she has always been unpopular where ever she works. She is notorious for professional slander, rumor mongering, and self gossip that has been her legacy. She is perhaps the evilest person in the new media today. If you have any doubts about this contact the people who run and work at the A Channel in Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta, where she worked for several years before Arkansas. She is a very unlikable person, and she is far from beautiful, she wears pancake make-up so thick that she looks like a wax dummy, and underneath all of that nasty stuff is a very unattractive person.

Those are the facts.

That's true, I worked with Krista Platzer in Edmonton and she was a horrible person, people that worked their were relieved that she was transferred to calgary. She was a horrible gossip and said the most terrible things about people she worked with. Frankly, I cannot believe that she still gets jobs in this industry becase she has burned a lot of bridges and is (in all honesty) one of the most evil people that I have met in the news media, like the previous commentor stated.

Some one said one statement earlier that crystallized my thoughts, "evil and ugly b-itch", brilliant yet straight forward analysis of Krista Platzer.

Did Global in Calgary just get rid of Krista in the last couple of weeks? She was anchoring the 11 PM news on the weekend and just seems to have disappeared without any mention.

The comments made by others about her complaining might be applicable in this case. The second last time I saw her she complained on air about the studio being too cold. She was on the next night and then after that gone.

After reading everyone's analysis of Krista P., I do not feel so bad when I have to add to the fray, that she was a notorious whore in Edmonton. The screwed half of the Pro football team in Edmonton (Edmonton Eskimos) and that is how she met her husband who was and still is a pretty notrious womanizer himself. In fact many people are aware of the fact that her husband was cheating on her over the past several years. But I guess that is ok with her, since she does the same, maybe they have an open relationship. There are also some juicy bits going around that Krista likes women, so apparently she is a bisexual, one of the Pro football players that played in Edmonton said he was double teamed by Krista and her roommate back in 1999. To add some more interesting knowledge to the pile, is that one of her husband's women even contacted Krista about her sercret relationship with her husband and Krista P. didn't do anything. Very strange indeed.
I thought the world might want to know some more about the Krista Platzer. By the way I used to work with Krista for a few years, so I knew Krista through work and most of what has been said about her is pretty accurate.

What a load of crap! I have personally known Krista for close to ten years, and she is far from any of the horrible and slanderous names you pathetic bloggers are calling her. She is a sweet and loyal friend, a fair and hard working journalist, a loving wife, and the best mother any child could ask for. She is also the most honest, and beautiful (inside and out) person you could ever meet. She was not fired from the shithole you all loyally watch... she QUIT. And I would have done the same... sounds like she was living in a town full of lowlifes like yourselves... who won't hesitate to slander someone they have never met and ruin a good person's reputation!

Take a look at yourself.
The same people calling Krista Platzer an ugly gossip who says horrible things about people are writing this trash.
You people are total hypocrits.

I know Krista and am proud to call her a friend. She was never fired from either A-channel station.

She is a wonderful wife and mother and those are her priorities.
The past is the past. Didn't you folks ever party as 25 year olds?

The comments you are making are hurtful and slanderous. Can you imagine how you would feel if your child would one day read comments like these?.....or are you still children yourselves.

Reading some of these ridiculously mean postings makes me want to cry. Krista is one of my best friends and is without a doubt the most generous, kind-hearted person I have ever met. She has helped me through some very difficult times and would do the same for anyone - probably even a stranger. Whoever is writing these horrible things about Krista obviously does not know her.

Interesting sight I have stumbled upon! Looks to me like there are quite a few jealous, bored and really moronic people out there who would rather spread gossip and insults then do something a little more intelligent with their minds, or maybe do something to better the world.Judging by this, maybe you should try to better yourself. What? Are you girls just sour that the football team threw you back into the putrid slew you tired to crawl out of? She didn't sleep with the football team, they were busy sleeping with me, and so was her roomate! As for her husband, he would'nt lower himself for a 2-bit whore but maybe that is just what this is all about! Struck out did you?!
Get a life!

I know Krista, and yes she can be a little difficult at times but I think that goes with the job description. It is a high stress job being an anchor. Ask yourself this, Do you always look beautiful everyday. No no one does. everyone has bad days. Krista and I grew to be best of friends working weekends together in Edmonton and I still consider her a dear friend.

It seems pretty obvious that Krista P. has earned a lot of enemies. This can only be the fault of her own doing, so in regards to what has been said, whether true or not she has definietly appeared and can be easily inferred to have stepped on a few toes and done some rather dubious things both professionally and personally. Looking at the defensive responses to some of these accusations seems to be coming from obvious sources, that being either Krista herself or her husband Mr. Deibert; clearly these would be the only two people with any interest in defending or trying to justify their arguements in defense. Having said this, it would also appear that there may in fact be much merit to some of the supposed slander that has been mentioned. What is truly amusing is the fact that som fool thought that they were defending Krista's honor by stating they were sleeping with her and her roommate, which can only seem to verify the previous slander as being fact. What is becoming painfully obvious is the reality that Krista, her husband/family, and supposed friends feel the need to dignify these statements with a response at all. Usually when someone protest these statements so much is would appear that they may be true after all. Usually gossip has a fraction of truth to it, which means only that Krista Platzer is probably not a very nice person afterall, and has treated a lot of people in her life poorly.

I personally couldn't stand working with her in edmonton and was glad when she left. She's one of the loudest, most obnoxious anchors I have ever worked with, always needing to draw attention to herself in the newsroom. I doubt that she's left most stations on her own accord, especially with her recently leaving Global Calgary.

I knew Krista PLATZER, I worked with Krista PLATZER, and you people are NO Krista PLATZER. If you were you would be kind and thoughtful. Krista and I worked together in Edmonton and she was wonderful and fun to work with. She had no airs, no attitude and was simply a fun person to be with. She was never fired from A-Channel, either in Edmonton or
Calgary. I would work with Krista again, in a heartbeat and would reccommend her to any news station.

Where do you people come from? You need to get a life OUTSIDE of the computer. Krista Platzer is a wonderful, thoughtful person. She is so far beyond the horrible comments made here. Jealous? Yes, I think so. GET A LIFE.

I worked for A Channel in management and admin., Krista Platzer WAS a terrible disruptive force at our station. Not only was she unprofessional away from the cameras, she gossiped horribly about people and was incredibly mean-spirited. Not to mention she had an even more horrendous personal life that included several acts of infidelity on her "then" boyfriends. She was a terrible representative of both the station and her occupation, we were relieved when she took that job in the US, because the upper echelon of our organization were on the verge of firing her. As for people getting a life, it is painfully obvious Krista P, or should we say K-P, you are vehemently trying to deny the truth about yourself on ths blog, perhaps you should have got a life years ago and people wouldn't be trying to knock you down a peg. Oh yeah, and having a child does not mean that you are absolved from the fact that you are a terrible human being with little conscience or responsiblity for your actions. I could go on with a list of things you have done to further verifiy and humilate you K-P, but I think the message is loud and clear you are a pathetic excuse for a human being and a terrible broadcaster. If you haven't noticed Krista there are more than a few of us online here who agree, with whom you worked with in both Edmonton and Calgary. Try not to raise you child to be as big an a-hole as you are.

This is not Krista, I am one of her many friends that got on here to defend her several months ago. I just checked out this site again, hoping that this ridiculous blog would be gone, but unfortunately it (you) still exist. I don't think Krista knows about this site, but even if she did, she's far too busy to defend herself to an obsessed psychopath. Okay, so you don't like her- and you don't like watching her on tv- I get it. So don't watch her on tv!! Why take all of this time and energy with the insults and rather creative rumours?! Did she reject you? Did her husband reject you? Is the jealousy killing you? I think I'm onto something here. Hehe, what a total loser!!! I'd pitty you, but you're not even worth the brain power it would take to pitty you. You see for those of you who don't work in TV, understand that being in the public eye every day makes you a target for crazies... and Krista has certianly attracted a lot of them over the years. Let's all stop writing and responding to this crazy person... thus fueling his/her fire. If nobody writes anymore, s/he won't have anyone to correspond with.

Krista is terribly nice, or terribly nasty.
YOU sounded intelligent until you spelled pity "pitty",
twice. You must also be a blond anchor.
Unless you have monitored every conversation KP ever had, you should believe she's ruffled some feathers.
She is a good, loyal, generous friend (a little heavy on the gossip), but generally means well.
I must caution you, though, to never, ever cross her.
That said, how about letting water go under the bridge.

A class A skank. Not surprised this broad has such vitriolic responses. She was a true peice of work. Talk about a toxic person. Cannot imagine she now has children, good lord what will happen to them. Hopefully her husband is still the good guy he has always been. But a woman like her has a way of infecting the best of them. Hope for all I guess. May be she grew up, but once a mean person always a mean person.
