Tell Us Why..Please Tell Us Why.....


KTBS, Channel 3 Shreveport will be honoring longtime Shreveport TV anchor Sherri Talley during its evening/night newscasts. Talley was an anchor at the ABC affilliate since October 1994. Before KTBS she worked at KTAL, Channel 6. What is the reason for her leaving the station....I guess the little tribute package is meant to look like it was a mutual deal huh....

Ahhhh...KTBS. The station that has people for a long time, then they get pushed out the door or so frustrated they leave and they are not allowed to say good bye on air. Yeah, that's really "On Your Side".

Good luck Sherri! I'll be watching since this will be the last KTBS newscast I will watch.

You can always do like Bob and Michelle and make commercials for Ivan Smith to get you through.

Just watched the "tribute". It's amazing they can slap something that good together at the last minute.

Sherri should go back to KTAL. God knows they need a better anchor.

Does one just up and retire and up and leave in the same day? Yea right!

You made the right decision Sherri. Stay as far away from that building as you can.

Give her 6 months and she'll be at channel 6. White has the voice of fingernails on a blackboard. So, she will fit in just fine.

This angers me. Why not let Sherri say good bye live? She is wise to leave. She was probably paid to say she "loves the Wray family."

She quit in haste.To make it look good KTBS put together a tribute package. If viewers only knew the truth.

Congratulations to Sherri! I speak from experience, life after KTBS is wonderful. The guy who runs things has a heart of ice. He values looks over ability and ONLY cares about one thing, money. He is a living, breathing Ebenezer Scrooge. Everyone who works under him is merely a puppet. Run, Sherri! Don't look back.

"if viewers only knew the truth"
Why don't you inform us viewers of the truth?

Who knows why? All I know is that things as they appear are usually never what is really the "real story". Sometimes...but usually not.

1:42p,

Speaking of the real deal, you should try Michelle White Lafitte on for size. Shes the fakest thing walking this town.

So true. And guess who is going to replace Michelle.

Good luck Sherri. While I would love to see you join us at KTAL, stay away. The new News Director is awesome, but someone needs to take a stand and boot Michelle out the door.

Why is a comment about Chris Redford on this thread? Who cares if he is gay? He is a space alien.

Again, replacing her with Chrissi, cheap way out. If someone wants to "Let viewers know the truth", then post this page to their Facebook. Maybe viewers who are sad over her leaving will know that KTBS is not the same place it used to be.

Anyone see NewsBlues on this? They had something about a Shreveport Anchor leaves on an "Ugly Note". Anyone know what that was about?

Good luck Sherri. There are plenty of former anchors still around doing very well after broadcasting.

Have any of you heard about "The George" having a meeting with Nexstar Broadcasting who owns KTAL? Is KTBS for sell? Is "The George" going to work for Nexstar?

George has been doing promo's and was in a package they ran.
With this sudden push for face time, is he planning a run for office?

Hey... who knows? Money coupled with hubris can yield some strange results. Take Liz Swaine... talk about someone who wasn't all that friendly to the general public and yet has created a career in the public sector. Strange!

Liz Swaine? I was trying to remember what the heck you were talking about. After a google, I figured out what you were referring to. Yeah, spot on.
