A tipster tells ATN KATV has hired a weekend anchor!  The new weekend anchor is Erin Hawley from First Coast News/WTLV/WJXX/Jacksonville, Florida.  Just kind of ironic First Coast News is where former KATV weekend anchor Heather Crawford is working now.

She is very pretty! If she can read and speak in a pleasant manner, she should make a great anchor.

She's very attractive and believe it or not being attractive is important if you make a living in front of a camera. I watch all four local stations and for a small market we have a decent number of pretty anchors and reporters.

In my opinion Beth Hunt, Joan Early, Jessica Dean, Jeanette Reyes and Lauren Trager are all pretty enough to make it in a much larger market.

You are nuts if you think Lauren Trager and Jessica Dean have big market looks. No clue who Jeanette Reyes is. I agree with the others though. Add Dawn Scott and Alyse Eady from 11 and Donna Terrell from 16 and the list is complete.

No red blooded, straight man would say Hunt, Terrell, Scott, Eady, and Dean wouldnt be on the hot list. We have some lookers around here.

6Erin is good. When she came in for a read through she was friendly, engaging and had polished reading skills. She will just need to brush up on local pronunciations and get to know her coworkers and she will be a force. If her work ethic is anything like Heather's was, the weekend show will be all the better for it.

Percentagewise, Little Rock has more hot female on-air personalities than most markets. Just check out the other markets.
I don't know who has the ax to grind with Jessica Dean, but what is up with that? She is a beautiful woman, period. Get over yourself.

I get so tired of these "blog trolls" that try to belittle accomplished people. What have you accomplished? Lets have a look at your resume. Why not post your pic so we can judge your appearance. Accomplished people with good self-esteem don't come here to make disparaging remarks about others; those are the actions of unaccomplished individuals with low self-worth.

So Alyse was first runner up in a beauty pageant.....so Donna is kinda hot at 50 something. Neither one of those things make you a good anchor. Enough said.....dumbass.

The morning girls at 11 are growing on me. I find myself watching them more & more.
Just a few suggestions from a viewer with no news/tv experience - just a typical guy viewer dude.
I think both Ashley & Alyse are very cute in very different ways. & they seem to have great chemistry togethor. (Sorry but Tom bugs.)
I would like to see them 'sex it up' a little bit with their clothes/wardrobe or whatever. Nothing trashy or trampy. Nice, new outfits - maybe just better ((tighter?) told ya I was a typical guy)) fitting clothes & a little bit more made up - hair-do's & all. Maybe that's far fetched for a early morning show. But those girls are hot - don't be afraid to flaunt it girlfriends --- snap snap snap!

Hmmm I like it. Alyse got here wearing her bikini, and it's not like we haven't seen the pictures. We ought to have her wear halter tops and such.

Has she really blown up that much already? I am rarely up in time to see her, so I truly don't know.

If so, has she secured a doctor boyfriend or fiance or anything to fall back on?

And you can see her in a bikini any time you want - just google Alyse Eady bikini pics, and there you are.

Heck if I worked over there, I'd print some out and make her sign them.

@10:12 It's not as big of a "rats nest" as it seems. The vast majority of people in this market are kind supportive people. It's just a handful of jealous petty insecure people (usually off air people who think they could do better) who make it seem that way. A lot of folks from different stations are actually friends and support each other accordingly. And believe me, most of the people who actually read this pathetic blog are amused by what is said in here. The outsider who occasionally peeks in here may think that it's as bad it seems but it's really not.

Ole Miss? Really?
I would rather her come out and say she is still an Ole Miss fan than being a fake Razorback fan on her first football game at KATV like Christina did.

 
At 10:37 PM, November 21, 2012, Anonymous Anonymous said...

So when someone moves here they're not allowed to become Razorback fans? Her bio says she started in April 2003 so that would be about 6 months before football season. If that's not long enough please tell us, in all your great wisdom, how long until someone can become a fan? She's been here almost 10 years now, long enough? What about our next coach? He's gonna be from out of state. He couldn't possibly be a fan then, right? So how dare we hire him. Plus it was almost 10 years ago, let it go.

Another defender of Christina Almighty. The ratings say there are a good number of people that don't like KATV's newscast. Christina just comes across as being fake, that she is not being herself.

Re Dawn Scott: A few months ago, I saw in High Profile (the 5 or 6 most expensive house sales of the week) that she had purchased a house in her name only and figured something was up. Remember, Dawn Scott is her on-air name. Her legal name is different.

It must be more than "separated" if Dawn has bought a house in her name.

I don't think there is anything wrong or odd about people being curious about the marital status of a main anchor--especially not when that person writes a blog about her family and posts pics on Instagram and Facebook and Twitter. Sorry--you can't have it both ways. When you are a public personality it comes with the territory. No one has said anything remotely unkind about Dawn's personal life.

9:07AM wasn't Liz I'm a male and I work at a different station then Dawn. Yes Dawn writes a blog and that's her choice but putting her personal life and talking about it here is wrong! I didn't say anyone said anything unkind about her personal life but I don't think it's our business about her married life. If we wanted to talk about our personal life we would not post Anonymous on this blog

Sorry, but Dawn's personal life is up for grabs. She chose to be in this business and is very well paid for her 2 hours of work a day. If she is divorcing her doctor husband, I want to know when, where, how much, and which one of them cheated and how often. And I am completely justified for wondering, since she puts herself in the public spotlight every single day she works.

Heard from the family of Matt Turner that Julee was not invited to their Christmas Party at THV set for Saturday Nite. You would think out of respect, even if she declined, that after the big tah do they made, that they would at least keep in touch. Out of sight out of mind I suppose.

No offense but why would Julee be invited? Would have been a nice gesture but I can see how that could slip through the cracks. None of them even knew Julee.

Please explain the Beth Hunt comment. Are you saying Dawn is replacing Beth??

And let's leave the Turner thing alone. He did not work there long enough for people to know his wife that well. She's become a minor celebrity herself since his death. I don't blame THV for not inviting her to the party. Really how awkward would that be?? It's his family's first Christmas without him--going to be very hard. And it would definitely cast a pall on the party atmosphere.

TV is a superficial, chew-em-up, spit-em-out business. Even in this puny, mostly worthless market. Matt Turner is 80-percent forgotten at THV and everywhere else and that's too bad.

You don't know anything about TV if you're on air and think your life is private. People at grocery stores, restaurants and people watching in their living rooms think that because you put yourself in their lives, they have a right to know your life. They're right.

TV bosses market on-air people as a product to be open and transparent. It's a strategy that works. Look at ABC's morning show. Robin Roberts is a walking cancer commercial. Her life is in the balance, but TV bosses want it all--and probably Robin did too.

That's because there is a unspoken truth in TV from networks to dinky little TV stations; all on-air people are insecure looking for approval. Not a criticism--just fact.

Yeah 3:38... wouldn't want to make everyone uncomfortable so that a widowed, single mother of a small child would feel a little warmth during the holidays.

Arrogant. Twit. Moron. Typical TV jerk.

She probably would have turned it down, but an invite would have put something besides posturing and hot air behind all the THV on-air mourn marathon.

They were really quick to replace the comercial with Matt Turner on top of Pinacle Mountain with somebody else from THV .And they dont even bother to mention Matt Turner during Thanksgiving which would of been nice. This guy was by far the best anchor in Northwest Arkansas and had offers from National news stations but decided to move back in central arkansas to be close with his family and THV treats him like an after thought . He deserves better than just doing a two minute clip memorial basically from KNWA for him for a couple of days and then never mentioning him ever again.

This rumor might be old but I heard back in 2011 that Dawn Scott had an affair with Neil Summerlott while was working for THV who used to do sports with THV .
