Former KATV'er Back at 7?

This from an e-mail: "Betsy Pilgrim (Mars) showed up Thursday nite on KATV's Hog Report. Haven't seen her around in a few years. Since they couldn't get Dawn, they must have tried to recycle one of their former employees."

There is a lot better former KATV talent out there for Nicholson to recycle.

That hire would probably do some good for someone politically, but fewer than a hundred people would remember who she was.

Pilgrim is slated to be introduced in a press conference with Big Jim Katchings...who by the way scoffed at THV's offers.

Former ATV talent. How about Dale himself. He's the big pard, and used to the camera. Like Nolan's 40 minutes of hell, it's 30 minutes of Dale.

What does MARS stand for?

Will she be a regular on 7?

There's a lot more than a hundred of us, but probably not too many that access this site. Betsy is well remembered. How about Tonya Beene? She was on about the same time as Amy Oliver. Don't underestimate how many people remember folks they see everyday for years.

Betsy was cute and sweet. A combo that nobody on this blog can claim.

Yeah but she married Tom Mars. He is a very scary guy.

Hello, way more than a hundred people remember Betsy Pilgrim...Just the name Pilgrim is unique enough to build a promotional angle...even without big Jim. KATV was garnering huge audiences at the time Betsy was in the chair or on the beat. I personally always thought Kelly Kitten (Minton) was a good one. KATV developed many like her. They deserve the credit for that. It must have felt great to have it all for about 4 years...Ask Richard Farrester.

I like Ann Pressley better. She seems much happier than Beth.

Look at her on TV now, man don't she look old!

The reason I remember Betsy so well is that she is a brunette in the almost all-blonde TV news biz. There are so few dark-haired women in TV that she stands out

Sorry, but Betsy was never a ratings draw. She was given the fill-in anchor job and then was made a secondary anchor only because she flirted with the news director.

She was a marginal anchor and a pretty good reporter.

Wasn't Betsy married to Ted Skokos at one time?

Anne is much better than Beth! Let's hope Beth takes a MUCH longer pregnancy leave

Yes Betsy WAS married to Tom Skokas.

Never cared for Betsy much. I am a little dissapointed in KATV for brining her back.

Anne Pressley HANDS DOWN over Beth Hunt!!!!

No contest on this one people...Anne Pressly is WAY too high strung!! Beth is much better. Can't wait until she comes back...I bet the Daybreak people can't wait, either!!

Let's hope Beth Hunt comes back ASAP...Anne Pressly is HORRIBLE!!! She may be the most obnoxious person on tv!!!!

I think it's really a dead heat between Anne & Beth. IMO Beth is the better reader, but Anne has more of a morning show personality. Ironically, Betsy Pilgrim was the first Daybreak reader when they implemented that position, but If I had to pick my all-time fave, it'd be Rachel Fedder. She read well and was a total hoot.

I can think of one who is more obnoxious than Anne Pressly, that would be Renee on Saturday Daybreak.

What is this Saturday Daybreak you speak of? I remember KATV had a Saturday morning show long ago, I quit watching when the obnoxious sales person turned movie critic took over as a host.

Betsy went from Ted Skokas to Tom Mars. Didn't Skokas get her that job with Sheffield Nelson? Has she ever gotten a job on her own?

Skokas did get her that job with Sheff. She worked on kark too didn't she? she's gone through as many tv stations as husbands. does she ever stay in any one place or stick with anyone or anything for more than a few years?

That's been a pattern of hers for years. She's stay with something just long enough to get what she wants out of it and then ditches and moves on to bigger and better things

Yes, loyalty is not her strength in any arena

Who cares about her loyalty? If I was her I'd get away from Mars as quick as I could. He's scarey and crazy
