KTAL's Chief Met 'Shopping Around'?

I really hope this 'tip' I received today is not true as I think KTAL Chief 'Met' Todd Warren is the best in the Shreveport market.

This from the tip box: "Buzz around Shreveport is that Todd Warren's contract is up and he is job hunting? have you guys heard any of this? Wouldn't it be awesome if OTHER station in Shreveport could snatch the best weather guy away?I have heard from insde sources that he is in fact searching."

This is interesting news. Todd was well liked in Cincinnati at WLWT before he left and took the chief job in Shreveport. Whoever snatches him up will get a winner.

To the last 2 posters:

WHAT THE HELL DOES WIN NOBLE HAVE TO TO WITH TODD WARREN?!?!?!?!?!?!?????

Thats new to me and I work here in the Shreveport Market. I don't think he will be able to jump to 3 or 12 since there are no weather openings there and I haven't heard anything about any of the weather people from the ohter 2 leaving. I'll keep my ears open.

Todd is the best weather guy EVER. He's so awesome!! he could be the best looking guy in the WORLD. He is by far the SMARTEST weather guy in the US.
ALL OF KTAL/Shreveport/USA LOVES HIM!!! If he leaves,the station is doomed. Man, the world could be doomed?

I also used to work w/ Todd and don't understand why he wouldn't move on?
C'mon Todd, take that ultra friendly weathercast on the road.
Nobody does the weather like Todd.
When I worked with him he was so friendly w/ his co-workers, the kind of Real guy that would go out of his way to say "Hi" to everyone.
He's a real class act. It's not like he couldn't move on? He's THE BEST!!!!!

What's up with Rick Boone? He's smooth, but very odd. I feel bad for them all when he tries to adlib.
The 5,6 and 10 are hard to watch most of the time. There is no personality at all between the 3 of them. Much less chemistry.
I will say Todd is the best of the three, but he is a bit light in the personality dept. too.
Sunday nights aren't bad on 6, and I rarely watch mornings, but Shannon Slatton is pretty nice to look at that early.
My vote..go Todd go

Todd is the Rock upon which NexStar is attempting to build those newscasts. They will do everything within reason to convince him to stay. However, Todd has a lot of honor. -Hhe can see clearly that the news department is making no discernable progress toward attracting viewers. If he leaves, any chance KTAL has to be competitive in the ratings takes a massiv hit.

I agree, I admittly work for another station n Port City, and haven't understood why 6 doesn'T try to make a move at all?
I feel sorry for the guy sometimes, I would move over their 4 double my pay, and I'm serious. Being a rock for nextSTAR isn't much of a real rock anyway.

Did anyone ever think that maybe Todd is shopping around so he will have some leverage when it's time to renew his contract? I have a hard time beleiving he would leave Shreveport when his kids are so close to finishing school.

Nexstar would be stupid to let him go.... But then again, they don't always make the wisest decisions.
