Above-average looks.... average talent. That's why she was moved up to a bigger market.

Actually, she has moved to higher places only because Mommy and Daddy know people in higher places. Did you ever see this girl on-air? HORRIBLE. Did you see her interview with Hilary Clinton? EMBARRASSING. This girl is a terrible reporter with a weak presence and mousy speaking voice. The good news: She's young and has lots of time to grow up and get much better. I predict she probably will.

Yeah, you know what I'm wondering? What happened to Duane Graham? The old "7 on Your side" guy? I thought I heard he was doing an "on your side" gig again somewhere in Arkansas. I miss his "Jerry Falwell" type voiceovers putting the fear of God into people!

Maybe he could go ahead and get ordained as a minister! Then, he could go from there and run for Governor! Governor Graham predicts the wrath of God! LOOK OUT!

Christina doesn't claim to be a hard news reporter and there's nothing wrong with that. She's an entertainment reporter and is doing quite well in Dallas. She's
even filled in for the weekend anchor on CBS affiliate KTVT. She's been well recieved in Dallas and is actually getting some national exposure. By the way, her "family connections" may have helped her land a job at KATV, but it was her talent that got attention in the Dallas market.

Christina is NOT that pretty... especially if you take away her credit card. She's 70% appearance... but that goes a long way in the TV biz.

Smikin' hot? Well, maybe in a stripper sort of way.

Definitely in a stripper sort of way. Is there any other way?

She looks like Wednesday Adams.

Can't you just see her on stage... bending over... letting the guys slide bills into her G-string? Wait... gotta quit typing... got a visual going on here!

Let me get this straight. You're complaining because she's only hot in a stripper sort of way....WTF. What do want someone that's hot in the Bea Arthur or Janet Huckabee sort of way? I'm worried about you.

Nothing wrong with strippers... except they are all psycho. Lots of female reporters are psycho, for that matter. I would certainly watch a news channel where strippers did all the reading and reporting.

Judging from the above poster... there also aren't any spellers here! And you know what's scary? It was probably from someone in the biz !

I wonder if Christina.... well... I better not say it. But I bet she does !

I don't know why everyone is so mean to Christina. At least she was able to go to a top ten market after only one job out of college. Granted, her parents probably had some influence, but you have to have some talent and not all looks to get where she is. All of you are just bitter because you are still working in a medium market. Get over it. I sure have.

People are just a little bitter... she wasn't that good of a journalist... she had looks and her family influence. But, who said life is fair ?

She has a small job, at a weak station, in a big market.

Is it better to be the star player for the UCA Bears, or, the waterboy for the Arknasas Razorbacks?

She's doing a fine job... and you don't have to start at the biggest station to be a success. It's more about being in a good-sized market where you get noticed.

After all, it's better than reporting on fires and whatnot in Little Rock.

It isn't exactly a weak station. It is a Viacom owned station. It gives Christina advancement that most of us have never dreamed about. The CBS station in DFW is also owned by Viacom which would be why she sometimes fills in on the weekend anchor chair. It amazes me that everyone here acts like they know so much but they are just full of sh*t. Get over yourselves. In the big picture no one cares what the hell happens in little ole Arkansas. Our markets don't matter and you need to stop acting like it does.

Little Rock markets matter to people in central Arkansas.... and since this is fairly isolated between big markets, it's easy to get myopic in here.

To all of you skeptics out there, Christina McLarty has now moved onto bigger and better. She is in Los Angeles, working as the lifestyle/entertainment reporter for KCAL.
Not talented? Not pretty? Apparently you guys in Arkansas have no clue.
She is both talented and beautiful. And her parents have nothing to do with her advances in her career.

OH, Please the LA market is all hair and boobs. She will fit in just fine. Not to mention she looks like one of Don Corrosini ex wives. What does talent have to do with it.

I work as a photographer in L.A. and I know Christina personally, but I've never actually seen her on air, so I can't speak for her talent. I can however attest that she is a gorgeous woman, and very *real*!

In a sea of fakeness, she is very much a real person, and we've shared some good laughs together at a few red carpet events. I always look forward to seeing her.
