THV Rolls Out the Welcome Matt

Matt Turner officially joins the team at Today's THV/Channel 11 on Monday.  Turner will be anchoring the 5, 6 and 10 newscasts with Dawn Scott.  All promos feature the current anchors along with Matt.  Will the anchor desk be too busy with too many anchors?  I guess we will have to wait and see.

i was starting to think Turner was doing sports as there is no sports person in the pic.

For Gannett that picture represents way too much money in salaries. Someone, or someone's will have to go with rat ins plummeting as they are.

Matt will not be a sports anchor. He will be a primary co-anchor.

Who is doing sports? If I am Mark Edwards, I'm getting ready to bolt.

Welcome aboard Matt, hopefully Dawn and Craig will show you how to hold the little newbie reporters hands and coddle them on camera so they aren't so scared by the little red light.

I realize Ed represents weather but dang 4 primary anchors is just weird. I wonder if anyone spoke up and let it be known that it's a bad idea.

And if the new guy is not the sports anchor, as 11:18 PM states, then who is and why is that person not represented in the shot?

I'll say it again. This just is just weird.

@6:15 I was wondering where Mark was also. He's almost never listed on the website either. Hmmmm...

Gannett has never been that high on sports at ANY of its broadcast stations. Thus very little attention given here. It's no disrespect to Mark personally. He's not one they want to put out front right now. He's not the sports director. There isn't one.

Four anchors and a weather guy. Good one THV.

At 5 and 6, Dawn said that no one was being let go. It's Matt, Dawn, Ed, and Mark.

So it's Craig and Liz at Ten?

I'm so confused. It used to be 11 Listens to what the viewers want. Now, it's 11 doesn't tell anyone what's going on. So, tomorrow night is it going to be a new pairing of anchors? This is nuts!

4 anchors?
Someone has a good contract, good lawyer, or both.

Mark Edwards bolt where? He's not good enough to find another job. He's painful to watch.

I'm done watching 11 until Liz is demoted.

How is Mark painful to watch? He brings a flair but my opinion...

Yeah. Craig can try to be funny on Sports, not news.

It is not ok to be terrible at speaking just because you are black. There are lots of black anchors and reporters who can speak well. There is no flair.

O my goodness!!! How did race get thrown in this?

Mark is a blabber mouth...and just not the anchor type.

It's hard not to see that this is a race issue. It's not an issue of speaking correctly but an issue of he's the only African American at the desk but not seen on any promos or on the website. My question is WHY? He totally promotes the station. If Mark leaves so will a large portion of the viewers. IJS...Plus he's easier on the eyes than Craig, Matt or Liz.

It's not a race thing. He sucks, simple as that.

Exactly right, Mark Edwards just sucks at his job. They need a sports director, it's been terrible since Wes Moore left.

Sounds like you guys just have an ax to grind.

That is my question EXACTLY! WHY is Mark Edwards NOT on the websites or promos?

That boils my water! Mark Edwards is GREAT! He brings somethign to the air that noone else does...He is good what what he does in my opinion! You guys need to get a life! Do you think you can do better?

Of course we can do better.

Of course, remove all the black faces and keep all the white ones. Right 4:28? Sounds like you want to be him. I bet you dream of him at night! How mean! Mark, keep your head up! Either you work with folks that ckearly hate you, jealous of you or want to be you. Have some class and not further embarrass your station. Shut your pie hole

No one will ever stop talking about how bad Mark is until he is gone. No one is talking about any of the other "black faces" here or at any of the other stations. It's just that he sucks and can't speak correctly.

Let's face it, it's not many African-Americans in this market but is he hated so bad by co-workers and management that bad? Poor guy...

He dug his own grave. Now he has to lie in it.

Wow! He's great and is not bad on the eyes! Such a cutie...

No personality, big ears, and average looks. Not attractive in the least bit.

Mark Edwards may have big ears but you can't say he doesn't have personality

The big ears post was about Matt.
