Another plug-and-play, interchangable, disposable cog who was chosen more for how well she smiles rather than her skills as a journalist

You don't have to have hard core journalism skills to pull morning ratings.

Judging from this, if the Miss Arkansas rumor is true, KTHV will no longer be part of my morning television viewing routine

if it is mrs arkansas then the other stations are going to love it. yea, lets get a 22 year old who doesn't know jack about journalism and throw her up in a job which SHOULD require 10 plus years of experience. i guess the rumors are right. kthv IS a sinking ship. i hope larry has his retirement ready.

Goodness, I can tell THIS is gonna work. Stick a fork in THV; they're done.

SMH...

I just figured it out: this is an early April Fools joke.

I'm sure they're actually looking for a seasoned television journalist. Even uptight mamagement types have a sense of humour.

OK, it was funny, I'll admit.

How THV is constantly beating KARK and even KATV sometimes is a mystery to me. THV is the worst station in this market beyond a shadow of a doubt. They are terrible!

And in response to the Lance Turner story/comments. I've known Lance a long time and he's a great man. He did not ask to be put on TV, they asked him. At first he was shaky, but now he is solid and I am very proud of him. He has a great career and a great wife and deserves every bit of his success! Lay off Lance and go bitch about something else!

I want to like THV but just can't do it. I think they have a few talented on-airs but the majority are duds. This decision just makes me want to puke. As likeable as this kid might be she's not ready to be an on-air personality in a market of any real size.

I'm done with THV. Hopefully their ratings will drop to such a point that the owners take notice.

I find it fun that everyone at kthv knew it was her because alyse's stupid parents were bragging about it to people!!!!!!

This blog is nothing but a mud slinging opp. Every anchor in this market has been stoned. I hope Ms. Eady has the thick skin to rise above these cowards and take pride in her accomplishments. How many local anchors with 10 years experience have been invited to be on as many national shows as she has? Arkansas is in love with this girl, and I think THV has a winner.

Miss Arkansas is a great choice for the morning show. The ratings will prove it.

How can anyone take issue with Alyse Eady being hired for the morning show? She has more experience in front of a camera than THV's last two MMJ hires. Alyse is beautiful and poised and honestly..you don't have to be Christiane Amanpour to host a freaking morning show! I think she is going to be fine. It's good publicity for the station, too. Those who think Little Rock should not be a beginner's market--you are way behind the curve. It's been like that for years and isn't going to change. Alyse will do fine.

Hmmm, Alyse Eady or Candy Crowley? Who would I rather watch on a local morning show? No brainer, people.

The above posters are correct; morning TV is not news. Joey the cat could host the show. It's mererly entertainment while you eat your Fruit Loops.

Jeez...

gosh thv! shoving the news girl down the viewers' throats, huh? get over it. it won't work. just wait and see. the viewers are already complaining.

larry is so proud of himself but pretty soon its all going to blow up right in front of him.

When her contract comes up for renewal, she won't be able to trade on her five year old notoriety as beauty queen, and will be subjected to the same corporate grinding as everyone else. Those hacks will be happy to replace her with some vapid blonde because the Chicot County Rodeo Queen who took a community college radio-tv class was willing to accept $5000 a year less. Silly cogs. You think you actually have value.

THV should bring back the slogan "see/feel the difference". Because what I see & feel is very different. Their over all product seems halfa$$ and done in the cheapest way possible(talent, set, production). I feel as a viewer I deserve more when watching local news. I will not watch channel 11 for news, weather or sports until they invest in their product.

The only reason you clowns can't see she's as mature as she is...You never grew up yourself. This new hire at THV is sweet like Robyn but has tremendous talent...She carries herself like Anne Jansen but she's new and fresh...all THV...go soak your heads you cowards....It's MADE OF PEOPLE!!!!!

They can now See and Yodel the Difference at THV.

More proof that THV has always booted the serious journalist in favor of the superficial. C'mon people-- they have a former morning DJ who still acts the clown as their main news anchor and you're going to ride them for this?

These are real viewers on the THV Fan FB Page, with their pictures and names next to their comments, enough said -- THE LAST ONE SAY IT ALL:

Buford Anderson:
What losing viewers! I wonder why?

Marie McClusky:
I am sure we will get use to her just in time for her to leave or be replaced

Alicia Whittaker:
You guys should have put someone who could have used that job, instead of a beauty queen who could have probably gotten a job where ever she wanted.

Melissa Boullie:
Boy thv is definitely in need of new management not new news casters.

Rachelle Pfeifer Alicia:
so pretty girls are automatically qualified for any job they want? But surely can't make good newscasters? Hmm.

Allison Eastman Britt:
What about Melissa? Will she be replaced?

Buford Anderson:
She will never replace Robyn or Alyson! She is an outsider and this viewer will not be watching! Hello channel 7!!

Lea Ann Minton Sorrows:
Perhaps there were none more qualified who applied?

Jeanette Breznai Wyatt Harwell facts? high horse? lol :)........not even going to go there

Sherry Braslavsky:
I think they should have given the position to Melissa..she is down to earth and very professional. I just love her personality and something about her reminds me of Tina Fey. : )

Jennifer Tignor-Body:
Could care less is they hired Ms Arkansas, Ms America, whatever--All I want to know is what happened to Allyson....?????

Wendy Shinnall Lubert:
they need to bring alyson back

Sylvia Green:
I won't miss Alyson, because I will watch her on 7, what a loss for THV.
THV is losing talented people.. WONDER WHY!!!!

Who cares what the morons on that Facebook page say? Those people sit around all day long, presumably at work, and comment on every single post that hits that page. They think it makes them look important. They're still rehashing the Alyson thing, for heaven's sake. Alyson looked harsh, sounded harsh, and had a horrible accent. Alyse is classy and has been trained in speech and how to carry herself. That's all she is going to need for the morning show. It's not news, it's entertainment.

she graduated in 2010... like the poster on the other thread said, "It's Insane."

Can they get her to do the show in a bikini? I'll be watching.

Hey, beauty contest winners can't be ashamed to be seen in a bikini.

"Arkansas is in love with this girl, and I think THV has a winner."

Arkansas is in love with this girl? Get real. 99.9% of the people in this state couldn't tell you what her name is. They have a winner alright. She won a beauty contest. It happens all the time. Good Lord.

I didn't cheer HER on in the pageant, I cheered ARKANSAS on.

I don't know who she is and if it's true she graduated last year, I think it is a slap in the face to the people who work hard to try and earn a role as an anchor!

I won't be watching.

JUST pretty faces don't get ratings.

I love to read the comments from the bozos who try to make her looks a negative...ha ha...I love to read the comments about her being too young...ha ha...but my absolute favorite is trying to make her a Journalist when she's been hired to be a a personality and not a news reader...something tells me she can read...oh thats because only a handful of people have seen what she's capable of with screen testing and are keeping it quiet at this point...OH WAIT we should run all this past the goobers on the TV blog before hiring her...since the folks at THV cant make their own decisions...gotta go so I can cut and paste comments from the Facebook page...that will really affect the viewers and the ratings...

Amen, 7:42. Someone posted a link to this blog on the THV Facebook page some time back. Now we're getting comments from people who have no connection to this business other than reading the THV Facebook posts. So Alyse graduated in 2010? Katherina Yancy hadn't even graduated from college when THV hired her as an on-air reporter. Viewers weren't griping about that...because they didn't KNOW. Why are you people (especially those of you who are not in any way connected to the business) jealous of Alyse getting a shot on the morning show? Do you understand what it is? Harmless fluff and chit chat. Alyse doesn't HAVE to be a seasoned reporter to make it work. Get real! And get off her back.

Katherina graduted while working behind the scenes for Positively Arkansas as a producer before moving to news when the show was cancelled, get it straight... and she is working her way up, that's why peolpe didn't notice!!!!!


Plus she was hired to work her a$@ off for little pay.

How much is Alyse getting paid over all the THV MMJs working hard every day?

That can't be a good feeling for them. We don't know how any of them would be in that spot, but were they offered try outs? Who knows BJ could have been the next BJ.

THV MMJs get paid 20-25k

You can bet Alyse isn't accepting the job for that.

What is it 30, 40, 50 60k?

Please. If you have ever worked in tv news, you know that anchors have always and always will make more than reporters. That's just a fact of life. The anchors also get much cushier schedules than the reporters. That's always ticked the reporters off, too, but it's a fact of the business. Good on Alyse if she got a sweeter deal out of this job. Since when did it become a crime to negotiate something good for yourself?
