This from a tipster:

Friday is KTAL's Shelli Briarys last day. She is going to work for Harris/ Horseshoe entertainment.


And speaking of KTAL and anchors...where is Michelle White?.....

Shelli will be missed. A local girl is hard to find in local news.

I believe you meant "Harrah's" not "Harris"?

I wonder who will replace her...Michelle has been missing for three weeks now...I thinks she's gone.

Everyone is trying to get out of KTAL

News director has been working hard to get rid of locals. Tends to look down her nose at good ol' folks from the South. Briery was beyond an asset to KTAL, as were many of the people who have been driven away lately.

Hostile work environment. No respect. Micromanaged. The tree is dieing from the inside out.

If what people say on here is true. I think it is very very sad.

Couple buds of mine who were among the 18 or so who got laid-off at KTBS a couple yrs ago applied for jobs at KTAL. When they told me the proposed pay and hours...they said they'd be better off working for Domino's or Papa John's Pizza.
Experienced TV people best look elsewhere or leave the market for better gigs if they even exist.

Shelli didn't leave. I saw her on the weekend news last night.

Shelli was my whole reason for watching KTBS. Every time I would watch her stammer and stall and stumble her way through the pitifully simple morning news, I would just change the channel to KTBS and watch the only slightly less grating morning newscast. Quite frankly, I'm shocked that anyone as bad as Briery could even make the air in a market as podunk as Shreveport. Good riddance-maybe things are looking up for local news.......

To the last post..who are you referring to? Shelli on KTAL or Sherri on KTBS?

Well seems like she's still on-air. I saw her tonight at 6pm on KTAL...she was wearing some ridiculous looking B&W paisley get up. Don't these folks realize white with patterns is a no-no? Take a look at some bigger market ladies...you'll get some useful tips on wardrobe.

Wow...I hope all you who want to bad mouth Shelli feel better about yourself. It is a shame when someone decides to leave, all you can do is bash that person. That is usually a sign of insecurity. I wouldn't be shocked if it was someone who works at the same station she does. People usually does that kind of thing because they wish they had gotten the new job offer.

Anyway, Shelli is still at KTAL. Her last day is Friday.

Hey, Shelli; if you don't want to read negative things about yourself then don't read. For the two years I have lived in this area I have given you the benefit of the doubt and checked back in to your morning newscast occasionally, hoping you could make it through one single read without messing it up. You couldn't. Ever. The one good thing I can say about you is that you made a career change. Very prudent since, if I were as unfit for my job as you are for TV news, I would have been fired years ago. I am looking forward to being able to tune into local morning news without wincing.

To the poster commenting on wardrobe tips- I have noticed that several women on the local Shreveport stations wear things I would have thought would be a big no-no for TV. Sonia Bailes (sp?) on KTBS likes those really reflective shiny satin blouses in bright colors and it's distracting! I'm not sure if that is something that is taught, but it seems eschewing busy patterns and slick shiny fabrics would be a no-brainer. It's just another thing that makes all these stations look cheesy and hicksville.

About wardrobe...yep, makes you wonder. Anyone with a lick of sense about O/C TV Basics knows a thing or two about contrast ratios and complimentary colors. White & patterns, reflective materials are a no-no. Some stations hire fashion consultants who don't know rip about TV lighting and camera shading. And some of these folks don't have a lick of sense when it comes to warddrobe or make-up for TV. You got 40-something gals wearing teeny-bop high gloss lipstick on-camera ( must be going for a MILF look ). Watch network news guys & gals...you may just learn something

I bet all the negative comments come from the same group of people every time someone leaves a station and moves on to something better. Your life must be so pathetic. I also love it when someone decides to step up and confronts you, all you can do is "claim" it is the person you are attacking. So go ahead and claim this is Shelli again. Go ahead. More than likely, you are not moving on and will continue to sit in your same chair in a newsroom and watch others move on to bigger and better things.

Shelli is a nice person and doesn't deserve the bashing. I hope she excels in her future endeavors.

She was a little teary eyed this morning but probably glad to be leaving.....

Don't look back Shelli, you'll probably gett better pay and more corporate advancement opportunities than hanging at KTAL.

Good Luck

well i wish shelli the best of luck. I just hope her new job doesn't require public speaking, reading aloud, or looking at ease on camera.

I worked at KTAL nearly 30 years ago under a different owner. Nice to see that NOTHING ever changes at KTAL and that the rest of the market has gone to hell with "Newscenter 6"

It cannot have effect in actual fact, that is exactly what I think.

This can't work in fact, that is exactly what I consider.
