I did too and he did a darn good job. I am sure the PISSED part is exaggerated and directed toward management who is walking out the door.

Hmmm,

I just watched him too and he's very...average. He is NO JASON! I'd be pissed too!!!

Pete is filling the position that Jason Friedman used to be in...but as far as "replacing" Jason he was not hired to replace National Murrow award winning Jason. He is now working his 3rd day on the job. Give the guy a break. Pete is a talented reporter. People need to accept him as Pete Thompson not Jason Friedman. Also bloggers need to get over that the newsroom is "pissed" because that is just not the case.

First, I work at KARK and speaking as an employee, some of us including yours truly are pissed about hiring Pete. He's average!!! So, while it may not be the entire newsroom, make no mistake, there are a few of us who are still furious about this hiring.

As for "absolutely luscious", Melissa, get a grip!

My guess is that Pete is a good reporter, better than most people think. Funny how the above posts talk about Melissa and Katie... wonder if Pete will outshine both of those two ?

Pete is very good looking and an excellent reporter. Some of the reporters are jealous of him. Rick made a good hire.
