Anchor Desk Changes at KTAL

Well there seems to be a shake up at KTAL, Channel 6 in Shreveport. Lane Stone, the co-anchor of the 5pm, 6pm and 10pm news is out and from what I can put together from the station's website, Heidi York is the new co-anchor.

Heidi comes to KTAL from WWAY in Wilmington, North Carolina. Her archived WWAY bio says, she was the anchor of "Good Morning Carolina". She's a native of Greenville, South Carolina, but spent much of her life living in Ohio. She studied Journalism at The Ohio State University, and Radio/TV Broadcasting at The Ohio Center for Broadcasting."

I'll be tuned into KTAL at 6pm to see if she pops up next to Shawn Patrick.

Anyone know what happened to Lane Stone?

UPDATE: 6:05pm Shawn is anchoring solo tonight.

UPDATE: 8:20pm Well it could be Lane Stone is off to Denver where she will be marrying former KSLA reporter Eli Stokols. This article in the Christmas Edition of The Shreveport Times says the couple hosted an engagement party over the holidays. Stone's fiancée now works for the WB Network in Denver.

Lane's last day was Friday, Jan. 13th. On the 10 o'clock news Shannon Slatton did a story from Plain Dealing and interviewed people who knew Lane growing up. Todd Warren and Dave Shwartz also got to say goodbye. Todd said Lane was the same in person as she was on the air. Dave said she was a hard worker and stayed late a lot to help with sports. Evidently Shawn Patrick said goodbye the week before. Lane got a few minutes at the end to say goodbye. She said her fiance got a job in Denver and she was moving to be with him but that Shreveport would always be home. It seemed like she will really be missed.

expect heidi york to start in a few weeks. sometime in mid-february. ktal is trying to pump some life into its february ratings with a mysterious "who is heidi york" feature on its website(www.newschannel6.tv), complete with a question-mark inside the silhouette where former anchor lane stone's picture used to be on the bannerhead atop the page. as someone pointed out, the mystery isn't very deep: heidi york, not to be confused with a porn star of the same name, is stone's replacement and a former morning anchor in wilmington, nc. the gimmicky introduction seems more fitting for a tabloid or reality feature, and an extremely tacky and tasteless way to introduce a news anchor--even in market 81, you'd think they'd pretend that the anchors have the tiniest bit of gravitas--who no one in shreveport has ever seen and already has some big shoes to fill.

I worked with Heidi York in West Virginia. A total she-devil.
She made everyone in the newsroom miserable.
She "acts" nice in public, but it's all fake, trust me.

I don't live anywhere close to get KTAL, but I just want to say that Heidi York is not the evil person you are claiming her to be. Just because she is out there making a name for herself and you are stuck in a tiny hole in the wall station, you don't have to be talking trash about her. Be happy and proud for her. She is living her dreams, something you seem not to be doing.

somebody here said that lane was not a nice person. . . I beg to differ. She was always very nice to me when I worked with her at KTAL. . . I started working with her when she was a producer on the morning and noon shows. If she has moved on, then I wish her the very best.

Heidi York is a bitch. This doesn't come from a bitter jealous chick either. I am living my dream and the some.

Who's the loser that said York is living her dream?I don't
think some small time station like KTAL is what anyone would ever call a dream. Give me a break.
