Rumor Has It... KHOG Anchor Leaving

This from a tipster: Rumor has it that Leslee Wright from 40/29 News has decided not to re-sign her contract, and she will be leaving the station at the end of August, when her contract is up. She may do some part-time work for the station, but her plans are to stay home. Apprently, if this takes place, Donna Bragg will be promoted to full-time anchor and will take over duties as co-anchor at 5 and 6pm.

Hmmmm.... I just wonder who posted this rumor. The fact is, 40/29 got Donna Bragg to come back to work full time. Then they told Leslie Wright they wanted her to coanchor the morning show. She resigned Friday. The station is not officially talking, but everyone heard about it Friday.

FWIW I heard she was leaving at the end of her contract either way..I think to start a family.

Yes.. I have to agree. Craig's time has been up for a long time. It is time for him to go.

This, friends, is what we call spin. Don't be fooled! The truth is she was offered a morning post. She declined, so they said "take it or leave it." Bottom line, her time on TV at night was over. Since she and her news boss are best girlfriends, expect to see the "official" story be that it's her decision it leave. It is not.

Looks like Miss Wright is Miss Wrong!!

What a joyous day! Ms. Wright sucked on evening air.
Congratulations to whoever decided to replace her with a FAR MORE COMPETENT-
Donna Bragg.
It is about time!
Now, if they will just dump Craig!

as a former producer that worked w/Leslee from the time she anchored Sunrise until her move up, I can't say I'm surprised. She has the personality for morning. Nothing against Jennifer, b/c she is too. I just could not see the 2 of them co-anchoring. Jennifer is great where she is and to Leslee, good luck on whatever you choose to do in the next stage of your life, whether it is to have a family, or some higher up PR job. Oh and tell Mike hi...that was who someone on here said was her "girlfriend." It's a low blow, but they are or were good buds.

What a loss. Leslee Wright is the best anchor on local tv. She adds charm and a bit of humor to local news without being a clown car like KNWA. She will be missed.

As for Miss Wright's "unfortunate" looks, I've said to people around town many times that you could show a drive-in movie on that forehead.

Yikes!!

Goodbye, Leslee, and don't let the door hit you on the way out. We will soon forget you, just as we did ... uh, uh, what's her ,.. uh,

I guess I made my point!

I love the word "promoted" as applied to Donna. The correct term is "will return" to anchoring the 5 and 6 news. She was the main anchor there for several years and did cut back to devote more time to her family a few years back. The fact that station management allowed it should indicate her value in the market, and the fact that Leslee Wright got a "take it or leave it" deal and is now on her way out should tell us a lot about her relative value.

Unfortunate looking? Jealous? Leslee is the hottest thing this market has seen in years. Nothing bad to say about the other on-air personalities (some of you people are awful), but L.W. is smokin! I for one will miss her.

Let's not knock Leslee's looks. That's just one part of the package. She did seem a bit ackward on the evening show, like Craig was going to bark out commands at her. She tried covering, but it looked fake. She is a very nice person outside of the studio and would give you the shirt off her back, if you needed it. However, don't cross her in the news business b/c she can be a witch. That's the nature of the business.
She's a great reporter and was a good morning show anchor while she was doing mornings, but she isn't strong enough for evenings. Where is Megan McHale when we need her????

hahaha you morons, Leslee isn't reading this thing. She's just another anchor coming and going. Move along, people. Move along.

Besides we all know she'll show up across the street in a year or two.

The Leslee I know is sweet, fun-loving and a great communicator.
By the way, being a good communicator is important in news....not big breasts.

She happens to be beautiful as well. I'd love to see her work in a different market since she's always been here--but I don't know if she and her husband would ever do that.

Best wishes to her!

I cannot believe the immaturity demonstrated on this website! I can only conclude those people posting untrue, negative remarks about Leslee have either never met her or are written by female wannabe anchors who could only wish for an ounce of Leslee's journalistic integrity.

FYI- I recall research done not so long ago showed she had more name recognition in NWA than Bridget over at KFSM-- She was very well liked!


Best of luck Leslee. I know you will land on your feet!

The immaturity also extends to comments made about Donna. Obviously the people who write on this site don't know either of these women personally.

I cannot believe KHOG would bring Donna Bragg back, it was so nice to have her gone.

Leslie was great, funny and kept the news interesting. We will miss her, guess we will have to find a new news channel to watch. Ket Donna go to MS where Houston Nutt went

Leslee divorced her husband in November 2011 and was out chasing well off men by Jan/Feb 2012. Quick turnaround-2 divorces and give her 4-5 years she will have a third.

Leslee's husband had an affair and left her with their small baby. I assure you she did not want to be divorced. She fought very hard to save her marriage and only filed for divorce after waiting nearly a year for her husband to leave the woman with whom he cheated. Please be careful about what you post here when you no so little. She has been through hell.

Nice post Leslie. From someone who knew both of you, I would say all you need to do is read through the posts about you to know exactly why Marty left. So you have now run off two husbands, and are working the affluent circles for another? Sounds about right. Btw, have you seen his new girlfriend? HOT. I bet he's happy you were such an ugly witch.

I recently met Leslee, in the short time we talked it seemed she was way more interested in what I do for a living, than actually trying to get to know me. It's sad too, she seems like a very nice person. Hopefully, like most women she'll learn marrying for money never works out long term. You reap what you sow!

Leslee seems to be a very kind and deceit woman. However, I would like to tell her, do you want someone you can control or someone you can respect? All GREAT things take time. ;)
P.S. ignore the negative comment on here haters are going to hate and cheaters are going to cheat.

This quoted from above is not from Leslee and is only about half true. We believe it to be from her parrot, the new boyfriend, who happens to be a VP at a NWA corporation. Apparently two divorce settlements are not enough to pay the bills so now she has her claws in another meal ticket. If history repeats itself she will marry him, stay with him for 2-5 years then divorce him as well. Of course, this is just an opinion and we probably do not "no" too much. Whoever wrote the quoted message ought to proof read or learn to spell. There is a big difference between "no" and "know". Obviously spelling is not a pre-req to be a VP at a major corporation.
