I enjoyed working with Leslie while I was at KTHV. She's top notch and I wish her well in her new position. I might add a smart move on her part since the television business is going downhill fast. Good luck Leslie!

KTHV will never die as long as Meredith Mitchell is with them! She's the hottest thing going in the Arkansas scene!

GO, MEREDITH! GO! :D

It's a shame that Leslie is leaving. I've had the pleasure of working with her for the last several years. Some of the folks at THV were hoping that she would be the eventual GM - which will not happen now. I guess she got tired of waiting for the position to open, or maybe the writing is on the wall and THV will continue to spiral downward - she like many before her are the smart one's - Get out while you can!

Good luck Leslie!

It's a shame the sales managers at KATV aren't leaving. They miss budget and staff in other departments get laid off.

CJRW is not the agency they used to be. Too many egos, and too much of an attitude that they are always right. I hope Leslie brings a higher degree of customer service to this venerated agency which desperately needs a breath of fresh air.

I worked under Leslie at KTHV and she is an incredible woman. THV is STUPID for losing her.

Good luck Leslie!

Anything left of the Gannett retirement program?

I'm sure Gannett will bring in someone of "equal" or "higher" quality to replace her....they generally like to pool from their others stations to fill these type of positions....

Gannett will probably not replace that position for quite a while... after the first of the year. Just to go along with the whole hiring freeze thing.

The wrong kind and quality of people are in these type of jobs.

Do the folks at Today THV realize that today they have a crawl running on THV-2 that says there is a flood warning for Union county until 7:00 a.m. and there is not a cloud in the state?

Talk about credibility.

If you check with the national weather service you will notice that there is a real flood warning in Union County. It doesn't have to rain for river levels to be high. Thanks for watching THV2.

It wasn't for very long and probably won't happen again. If KTHV would cease THV-2 the resolution would be increased on THV-1 (12-1, or VHV channel 12 digital).

Hardly anyone watches anyway.

It's hard to hide some of the cartwheels going on back in her old corner of the building...only to be outdone by the dancing from traffic and accounting. Even Larry seems to have a lighter step going. Things don't seem so heavy...no more knife in the back. She questioned everything except herself and it became sickening. Who needed her to solve their problems?

LH, Good luck sifting through the politics at the new place, they'll see your hidden facets quickly, and there's no Larry lookin' the other way.
