Switcharoo at KTBS and Will Former KSLA Anchor Michelle White Return After Former Boss Loses in Mayor's Office Primary?

This from an e-mailer: "I've noticed on KTBS that the weekend crew (Jodi Lowery, Jennifer Gray, etc) has been working on Fridays, while the weekday crew (Gerry May, Sheri Allen, etc) has been working on Sundays. Do you know why they have been switching out?

- The anchor position on KSLA.com has been removed... could this mean that Michelle White may be coming back, since Ed Bradley did not win in the Shreveport mayor primary election?"


White has been off the air a couple of months now...shall be interesting to see if she returns to her former seat at the anchor desk.

I've also noticed that KTAL "A-Team" anchors have worked some Sunday evenings. I figure it's because they're fighting out Sunday night instead of the wasteland that is Friday.

The switch at KTBS was made to take advantage of ABC's strong lead-ins on Sunday nights. It's a logical assumption that KTAL made the switch to take advantage of the large audience for Sunday Night Football on NBC. As for KSLA, they have already hired Michelle White's replacement. She is coming from a station in Charlotte.

Well that's too bad that Michelle isn't coming back... I was hoping they would bring her back. I wonder what she will do now that Ed Bradley won't get in the mayor's office?

DCG- it's quite clear that most of your bloggers are interested in Little Rock gossip....not much interest in the Ark-La-Tex. Gosh...you get more NWArkansas posters than Shreveport-Bossier.

Maybe you should do some advertising.:)

In most top 10 markets your main anchors work Sunday through Thursday.

Your Sunday night late cast is the most watch cast of any.

I would love to see Ms. White return. By the way, anyone know what Ed Bradley is going to do?

I would like to know what Ed Bradley is going to do, as well. Michelle should have stayed put at KSLA... one thing that draws me to local news are familiar faces.

Re: In most top 10 markets your main anchors work Sunday through Thursday.

I have never seen the main anchors on any of the NY stations work on Sunday night. Which top 10 markets have their main anchors on Sunday nights?

I live in Houston and the primary weather anchors at all the channels work Sunday through Thursday, not sure about the other anchors!

Ed Bradley got divorced, lost his Southern Trace home in foreclosure, had burned too many bridges in Shreveport AND Raycom Corporate didn't want him back. So he's selling used cars in Plano, TX
