J-Mo has come a long way since she got here... she's ready for a bigger market. I am assuming this is not Portland, Maine !!!

Here's the thing about KATV reporters... of course they are hotties, but, most tend to do quality work! I mean think about it... wouldn't you rather watch KATV hotties do quality work... than KARK guys do sub-standard work! Pete Thompson vs. Anne Pressly, for example? Easy call !

Hello ??????

You're right it is an easy call. I'll take anybody over Anne pressley. She's the most annoying thing on TV.

Pull your claws in Michelle!!

Michelle is a lifer, nothing wrong with that, she's just happy where she is and has no interest in advancing. Nothing wrong with that.

Anne is good... so whoever is jealous of her, get over it.

Different people have different talents! For example... Sydney Hart does a great job playing Mother Nature in that bit with Mike Francis !

Morkurt is going to Portland Maine? Why?

Michelle would do anything to advance and get out of here, she just can't.

Well...wish next time I see Morkert out downtown will buy her a shot. Best of luck!

Not jealous...not even a reporter, just can't stand her screechy, nasal passage delivery. I bet if she never talked she'd be okay to ahgn around.

Michelle does fine !

Michelle does not do fine, no looks and no talent does not make you a fine reporter.

Fine... not great... just fine. She has decent looks and tries hard. And if you actually notice.. her STORY content is good! Or, is the above poster just looking for top shelf face and boobs ?

No, I'm looking for talent, something Michelle does not have. And no, her story content is not good.

To 12:37 poster on 2/7:
Do you even know who Sidney Hart is????? That is NOT Sidney playing Mother Nature....Look up the bios on ArkansasMatters.com...you can see Sidney, and MOther Nature...not the same person!

You have to admit... just a few more doughnuts.. and Sidney Hart can do the Mother Nature role !!!!

Sydney is very pretty and very professional. Have you lost your mind?

 
At 4:35 PM, February 07, 2007, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Have you lost your glasses? Sydney is not pretty.. she is timid doing stand-ups.. her delivery is weak.. her writing is high school level... and she doesn't put any emotion into her story. She needed to work more in a smaller market, develop her skills. I know Little
Rock is not a big market at all, but, there are reporters in JONESBORO right now who are much better than Sydney.

She's still better than Michelle.

Why is everyone picking on Michelle and Sidney? We are all God's little doves and we all have feelings.

Sydney is really great. She is an up and coming talent. You heard it here first.

So.... now we know that Sydney's screen name is News Ace !

Is Jessica going to Portland, ME or Portland, OR?

Oregon... she got a nice job in a big market. She worked hard here and can be proud !

Top LR TV News babes:

1. Beth Hunt



2. Kristin Fisher
3. Melissa Simas
4. Becky Ditchfield
5. Heather Crawford
6. Christina Munoz

LAST: pick your KATV anchor

Top LR TV News journalists:
1. Uh, go watch PBS for good journalism. 30-min TV news is basically re-reading headline news blurbs. Give me a young hottie with a little personality for this gig. I mean, c'mon, even nationally--you think CBS hired Couric for her journalism? No, it was because of that cute smile, those legs, and her bubbly personality.

Oops... I meant:
"LAST: pick your KTHV anchor"

Seriously. Not attractive, not personable, not for the journalism. Can we please quit getting "ooohs and awwwws" after stories? Good lord, I'd ALMOST rather sit through Donna "The World Revolves Around Me, It's Obvious Everyone I Work With Hates Me" Terrell than the women at Ch. 11.

Has anybody noticed how much Heather Crawford looks like Karen Fuller. Watch your back, Miss Munoz

Munoz has nothing to worry about.

Did you see how BAD that Heather Crawford has looked lately? Is she sick or something? Bags under her eyes and everything

 
At 11:05 AM, February 14, 2007, Anonymous Anonymous said...

She hasn't looked that good from the start. Not a very good news reader either, hopefully she get's better or KATV might have another Krista Platzer on their hands.
