Oh boyee... stranger than fiction.
Stanger than fiction is exactly right, why would anyone stalk Chris Redford ? Must be more to this. I have seen better looking dog's asses.
Your looking in the mirror.
To 7:06 AM: "dogs' (plural) asses not dog's (singular) asses. [A dog has only one posterior.] To 8:11 AM: "You're (contraction of you are) looking in the mirror" -- not "your" (possessive pronoun).Happy Thanksgiving!
Is this a paternity suit?
A stalker really Somebody stalking chris thats funny
Well Turney is a "really funny guy" ;)
I am surprised KTBS hasn't let Chris go over this. Filing charges on an advertiser? They can't be happy with him.
I have worked with Chris Redford. He has mental issues and hates women.I read this story and still can't figure out what there was to file charges over.And what is with the pic of Redford with tape over his mouth in his underwear? Is that a gay thing?
Turney's account is not that important to the station. If Chris had filed charges against Dan "The Orange Man" Walters, it would hit the fan.
@8:09. What kind of mental issues? The DA actually files charges in these cases.
I see Michael Turney is busy again writing all these comments. Does the man ever give up?
The Wray family is funny about things like this. I have seen them in action. I will bet they let Redford go.I too read the story and still can't see how Redford was stalked.He is a drama queen.
@ 9:44 PM I have commented here and didn't know for sure who Michael Turney was until I googled him. Now I am all but sure he did nothing to Chris Redford.Redford has problems,ask anyone at KTBS.
@11:08. You're all but sure? That means you're everything besides sure he did nothing. Call your friend Turney and tell him you posted on his behalf and go to bed.
Where can I find the story, the allegations,etc.?
Buy The Inquisitor. It's on the news stands now. You can also get it online.
I'm not sure why someone on here keeps saying that Turney is writing these posts. I don't know either one of these people, but it seems like a crazy story - one that might be contrived. If you look at Turney's website, he seems like a stand up guy. Don't know about Redford, but by the look of the picture in the rag, he may be looking for money alone - I mean, I Turney gets charged, I suspect Redford will sue. Again, the charges seem very strange.
My daughter has been working with Michael for years. He has been generous and kind. Certainly not the type of man that would be labeled a criminal.
Chris Redford = Psycho Douche
You should be focusing on the serious stories in The Inquisitor. Not this fluffy crap about a pissed off rejected queen.
I find it strange a parent of one of Turney's clients knows to visit a blog site about television news to comment on here. Police must have enough evidence against him or they couldn't have pressed charges. I googled Micheal Turney too and didn't find anything about his character or him being a stand up guy.
I work for KSLA - hence, I WOULD know that this blog is available. Friends of Chris Redford....you should give up the comments. I checked on MT's reputation before I allowed my child to enter his program. I also checked the BBB and he had an A+ rating, which very few in the modeling industry do. Stalker....I doubt very seriously. This is some weird and strange accusation.
That settles it. You know everything about him. Do you know everything about Chris Redford? Please share with us. I AM a friend of Chris' and have read the text messages and emails. Did you read the article or just on here to defend a friend?
I apologize for getting off topic, but can someone from KTBS tell us if Judy Wagonner quit or got fired?
Has anyone posted the story online? I'm not buying the paper but I would like to read the story since I know both of th guys.
I don't know what happened. I know both guys and know they were at least friends at one time. I have seen Chris at Michael Turney's place and seen them at Barnes and Noble together.This really makes them both look bad.
So were they a couple at one time?
@4:35 Clay still posting here and still taking up for Redford I see.
My daughter has been trained by The Michael Turney Agency and when a friend of mine told me about the blog, I decided to check it out. Good grief! I really have to question the motive behind this action. Mr. Turney has been in business for years and has an exemplary reputation. I've heard about Chris Redford, but not much. I don't know if he is a stand up fellow or not. The mug shot of Mr. Turney was more respectable than the posed shot of Mr. Redford. I hope this is settled quickly and these men can get back to business as usual.
Seeing these two guys at Barnes and Noble makes them a couple? Hmmmm. I would hate to be romantically involved with the friends I take to the bookstore!
@9:25 Do you turn around and file bogus charges on your friends?Is that you again Clay?There was a story around the station awhile back about Redford being sued by some older man who he had borrowed money from and not repaid it. If I remember corectly the guy got a judgement against Redford.Would that not be public record? Do we see a pattern here maybe?
The person with glasses in the photo sure doesn't look like the type that would stalk anyone. Does he?
There is a murderer and three armed robbers with almost $15 million in combined bail on the cover of The Inquisitor, and you all are going on and on about this Redford-Turney crap? Whatever.
Regarding the poster's question about Judy Wagonner. I heard she quit because she saw the handwriting on the wall. She had an attitude that got on people's nerves at KTBS. And since she was just a weekend anchor, that was not going to be tolerated.
@ 12:11 AMChill out Chris !!!!
Your paranoid and TOTALLY wrong 9:00 AM. This thread is so middle school.
OMG, you are so right. I feel like I am back in 7th grade home room.
Well as an outsider looking in. The story looks as if the two men were friends at one time, and they aren't now. I don't see why this apparent fuss is anyone else's business and why charges needed to be filed. It looks as if the reporter wanted to make the business man look bad to the public, and I hope that the law drops this case. No one is in danger and it is a waste of time and money to all involved. Stalking laws are for people that are threatened. I am sure Mr. Turney didn't deserve to be arrested and that Mr. Redford didn't want that porno looking picture in the paper. I say... Just drop it all.
all homosexuals like drama. tada
No we don't.
Turney is a liar, a con man and an embarrassment to the gay community. His arrogance is what got him in this trouble to begin with. He doesn't leave well enough alone. When someone says "NO" they mean "NO". Chris Redford is a friend and a victim here. Just look at how many times Turney didn't show up for court. He thumbs his nose up at everything. He is trash and I hope he gets what's coming to him. This is going on too long. Chris isn't the only one this has happened to!
Hate to tell you all but Turney has a profile on that same gay cruise site. Wouldn't surprise me if he is typing more than 1/2 of these comments. That is his method of operation. Look at the KTBS site. I'm tell you Turney is trash trash trash!!
This has to be the weirdest bunch of posts I've ever laid eyes on. I suspect this silly little gay tiff will resolve itself, but only after the two men have spent a fortune on lawyers. If I were Redford, I would drop all charges in short order - the only thing I see here is cha-ching.......If this goes further, I can see Turney suing Redford and more money being spent, reputations being tarnished, and more cha-ching down the tubes.
I don't know either of these men, but if a guy has his profile out there on some psycho gay/naked website - RED FLAG! And, this person doesn't want to be "stalked?" As for Turney, he might be crazy....as a fox. That man didn't make a fortune being dumb.....or being a stalker.
You gays really are too much! If that really is turney on this gay site,which is doubtful, he at least has the sense not to embarrass himself and his business with photos.Ask Chris about his borrowing money from an older boyfriend and not paying it back. The judgement is public record. Ask his co workers about him borrowing money.This has all gone too far.
HAHAHA!!! Michael Turney probably doesn't have a fortune, but I am pretty sure he has ample cash to spend on high paid lawyers. High paid lawyers = Winning! Even the article made Redford sound terribly foolish and making something out of nothing. I mean, what adult does this crap? Why didn't he just get a restraining order if he was shaking in fear? Man oh man.
EVERY SINGLE POST is Michael Turney. You are not very smart. People can see through all of these post of yours. What an idiot!
I can assure you that I am not Michael Turney, and I posted one of these comments. However, whoever is posting for Redford is a very angry individual......that is who you should be afraid of Chris........or is that you posting. I can't imagine that one of your friends would be so full of venom about this situation. I am certainly glad that I am not a gay porno reporter or your friend. You should be ashamed of yourself as a public figure and grow up and be a man instead of a little girl.
Can someone tell me who this Waggoner chick is you are talking about? What on God's green earth does she have to do with this story. Does Chris owe her money too?
I think this thing is blowing up in Chris' face. Maybe it'll blow that duct tape right off his lips......talk about trashy. My gosh, it looks to me like old man Turney is just that.....and old man that has worked hard and this prick is trying to get some of that money - that's all this is about....guarantee. If he can't borrow it, he'll try to steal it in court.....won't work buddy. Turney has too many folks on his end to be charged.
Well.....good old Chris is at it again. Chris, how many times have you borrowed...i.e. STOLEN money from people at work? I work with you!
Michael Turney would be a fool to post anything on this blog. Don't you imagine he's far wiser than that. He might be old, but he ain't an old FOOL. LOL. Michael Turney is probably talking to some former President or Governor about more important issues tonight. I would thumb my nose too if I knew some of you people. For heaven's sake.....you all are just too much! Go hang out at a gay bar somewhere and cool your jets.
I just figured it out! All the queens are mad at Michael Turney because he's a Republican! That must be it. Well, he IS a Republican because he is FOR small business and AGAINST taking care of worthless bottom feeders.
This is definitely the Micahel Turney show. He so stupid to think we can't tell his writings. Ths things he has called Chris are the same things he has said in public. Anyone who knows the law knows these charges have nothing to do with money. These charges are filed by police officers ONLY after seeing the evidence. Turney is a complete arrogant asshole and is certifiable crazy. Certifiable!
Gays hate Michael Turney because he is CREEPY, a LIAR, ARROGANT, and NASTY,
What's real funny is that someone thinks I might be Mr. Turney himself! Wow. Again, he would be a fool to write on here. I would love to be a fly on the wall in the court room! What a scene it will be - Chris sporting his gawg-ous tats and Michael in his Michael Kors suit.
8:48 - I don't see anywhere in all of these posts where someone called Chris anything. Wait, I see where someone said he has mental issues and hates women. Maybe that's what the person is referring to? Other than that, I don't see a lot of name calling. I do see more people supporting Mr. Turney....for obvious reasons. I believe he has a good reputation and many friends in the community.
Yay!!!! "The Gays hate Michael Turney"...maybe the girls have a chance! Hahahaha! These folks are certifiable nuts. Is anyone thinking with a rational mind here?
some of the people posting here have nothing to do with this.Their time would be much better spent making some money to get their teeth fixed, their eyes uncrossed and tending their unwed mother daughter.
9:41 - huh? That made no sense at all.
Can we get off this topic??????
Don't know about Judy leaving KTBS but look for Jennifer Grey the weather guesser to return now that she is single once again - Brad Reeves only lasted 1 year with her - she must have traded up!!
Well, that would make sense since Jennifer has kept up her local presence by doing furniture commercials for the last several months.
oh tell more on the J Gray story. What split the sheets?
Jen's been doing those Bewley's spots from Florida the the entire time she's been there. This is round 2 for "Little Brad" so he is 0 for 2 in the marriage department. Now that Reeves Marine does not exist any more there is no reason to move back. There is much more opportunity for both of them in Florida then there is here.
But if they have split, then she very well may want to move back to be closer to her family.
True, but if Jen moves back that would be a major mistake. There are a lot more men there in Florida. Many with more money and less baggage then the Reeve's.
This is not a surprise. I predicted it would not last when they first announced they were getting married. I agree with a few of the previous comments. Jen most likely move back, but she should stay there in Florida. Even though her family is here there is more opportunity there and she could have a fantastic life without moving back to this mid-size burg.
Exactly, moving from the #16 to the #83 market would be professional suicide. Jen can make more money there, and have a much better quality of life. There is so much more to do plus the Miami night life and social scene is amazing.
Turney is CREEPY, a LIAR, ARROGANT, and NASTY! Poor thing. Loneliness has escalated his mental illness. Finally, he will be exposed for the tortured soul that he is. It's unfortunate that Chris Redford has had to deal with Turney's unwanted advances. He is in a lot of trouble and will do anything, including post fake comments, to try and clear himself. With any luck he will leave our area and rid us of his embarrassing presence.
Thank you cross - eyed David for your input.Don't you have some illigitimate grandchildren to raise?
There was a newspaper article recently about the fate/demise of Reeves Marine and Li'l Brad's dad said his son was recovering from stomach cancer. Okay... so do you think this has had anything to do with the split? Also, why anyone would leave a top 20 tv market to come to Shrevesdump would be a really blonde thing to do. Jen could use her "assets" to attract bigger fish in South Dade, unless she really lacks the smarts and ambition. Got the looks though and at her age, she better make the most of 'em . She can always "fallback" to Shrevesdump and wind up at KTBS since Alexandra Cranford is gone. But it would be a stupid-move careerwise.
I don't know any of the people involved on this blog, but name calling is so rude and reveals huge ignorance. I would hate to be the person spewing hatred and calling people horrible names because it will come back to bite them.....life tends to work that way. So......if your eyes go crossed or your grandchildren's eyes go crossed.....you get my point. Also - calling people nasty, etc. is just childish and nobody can take those comments seriously.
Jennifer is hot enough that she can attract men wherever she lives. I agree with one of the posters who wrote that she might want to be closer to home. Isn't that what Jody Lowery did - move from Florida to be closer to home?
Uh ... not knocking her but competition in Tampa is pretty hot and well let's just say Jodi made a good choice. Jen is South Beach material Fo Sho and working at WTVJ is just a hop & skip from network if she's smart. Sure, she could do OK in Shrevesdump but consider the chance of playing in the majors. But no guts, no glory. She can always come back home to po-dunk and eat fried fish without worry.
@ 2:12 PM, November 27, 2012Your words are the wisest I have seen posted here in the last few days. I don't know what Michael Turney could have possibly done to Chris Redford or whoever is posting on Redford's behalf.I hope once the court dcides something that these evil posters will go back under their rock.
@1:40 PM You took the words right out of my mouth. Jen has the perfect look for the Miami market. Even if she got out of broadcasting and production all together she would be better off there then here.
Commenters: 8:34, 1:40 and 9:18 are all spot-on. I don't know why folks think moving back home to be "closer to family" is such a big deal. I mean come on, she moved to Miami as much for the WTVJ gig as anything. She moved back to KTBS "because of love" (i.e. relationship to li'l Brad) and then moved back to Miami to work at WTVJ. Is everybody in Shreveport such a yokel to think that folks wouldn't consider their careers instead of family-stuff? Is being so close to mama that big of a deal when you're young and good looking and you know you can work the moneymaker in a bigger pond? Come back to Shrevesville and you may attract a rich hubby but chances are he's a good ol' boy and who needs to repeat that crap? Get a grip local-yokels.
Jennifer is certainly not ugly, by any means. but she is not as hot as some of you seem to think she is. And her weather forecasts at KTBS were not all that great either. I would not bet much money on her becoming a superstar anytime soon.
Well she must've had something going on well enough to get her hired in Miami, not once, BUT TWICE !! Soooo, I'd say that she's doing ok for a mediocre weathercaster with teeth, tan and t____s. Don't think anyone could argue with that.
I find myself somewhat in the middle of the last two posters. I think Jen is definitely a lot better to be in a larger market, such as Miami, than here in Shrevepatch. But, I don't think she can make it nationally.
Ms Gray got someone's eye in Miami and I suppose audience research must back that up. I've been to South Fla many, many times and she fits a particular "mold" for on-air weather talent / AM-show personalities. Just check out any TV website in S. Fla. and you'll see what I'm talking about. You better be young and fit or you may not last long. It's style over substance big-time and it sure ain't PBS.
Yep, yep. She has that typical S. FLA look. Even if you can not read a prompter as long as you look good they will hire you.
Both Chris Redford and Judy Waggoner no longer show up on KTBS.com "Meet Our Team" Maybe both have been fired.
Redford is gone.
Poor Joe Haynes Alone Againme
Interesting. I saw Rhonda Lee back on the other day. Didn't she leave for another market 4 or 5 weeks ago? What happened there? And Neil Shaw was back on as well. I expect to see Skip filling in here and there.
What does Chris Redford or Judy waggoner have to do with Joe Haynes?
@8:25 AMYou mean besides being co-workers? The lone 10:08 comment about Chris and Judy was their pic and bio have been removed from the KTBS website.
I have never seen KTBS this light on reporters. Maybe their rep has something to do with it?
Redford did not quit,he was fired.
Someone told me they saw Redford post on his FB page that he was "Free at last" or words to that effect. No more details it seems.
Maybe KTBS can train Tatum Everett to read the weather. Rhonda was too "high strung" to be doing the weather in the morning.
@ 11:18 AM Fredoms just another word for nothing left to loose.
Don't know what or why but there's no mention of Rhonda Lee anywhere. I thought she did a good job, maybe more energetic than most but how's that a bad thing?After a google search, found an old post on mediabistro, something about a discrimination lawsuit she had at an old station: http://www.mediabistro.com/tvspy/tag/rhonda-leeDon't know if there's anything more to this regarding KTBS... any takers?
anatpesI don't think anyone is surprised Chris Redford was let go.Making false accusations against a man like Turney was certain to end badly for him.No way he will find work in TV anywhere.Is Rhonda gone too?
Rhonda left a month or so ago, but now she is back. Has any one heard any details s to what happened.
There's a new thread posted about Rhonda Lee & Chris Redford getting fired. According to the post, Lee was fired for responding to a someone posting the N-word on her Facebook and Redford for his recent alleged issue with Michael Turney. To read more, copy / paste this link or go to the new thread made on Nov. 29 of this blogsite.http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=9824194&postID=8957669312820483897
It looks like this filing trumped up charges on people he has a vendetta against has caught up with Redford.Gee this has been thrown out of court once for lack of evidence.
I would imagine Chris can forget about working in TV anywhere,muchless here.He seemed to do a good job,bringing an adveriser up on crazy charges is not cool.He knew that was trouble.
Maybe the result of too many OTC supplements and energy drinks taking their toll on good judgement.
Crazy Eyes!!! That's what I won't miss!
Maybe he could be a policeman?Now that thought is scary.
LoL.... not sure he could pass the psych evaluation screening. But then again, it is the Shreveport PD we're talking about here, ain't it?
Chris could always go to New York. His twin brother is cop on the NYPD.
Interesting that since Redford is no longer at KTBS, seems like he's gotten really quiet about forums like this. Wonder if any of this has finally sunk in?
Maybe because this forum and town do not matter?
Believe me it matters to Redford,he considers himself to be a celebrity which has always cracked his friends up.He will likely move home. Even his police buddies have little for him since this whole deal. What can he do for them now?Too bad.
Just do a couple searches on this blogsite and you'll find where Redford would post on and on and on about being persecuted or trashed on the blogsite. Maybe he was but he would exacerbate the issue to the point of being ridiculous. So yeah, it's pretty interesting to see how quiet he has been considering the recent developments.Anything posted remotely related to him was like waving a red flag in front of a bull.
Redford is probably trying to find a lawyer who will sue the station on his behalf.He will say they fired him because he is gay and because he filed that shit on Michael Turney.In truth,he was let go for violating specific policies of KTBS.
My guess is that he probably already has lawyered up or at the very least has been told to keep his mouth shut and fingers off the keyboard. Maybe his pic of him with duct tape on his mouth is more practical than we realize.
I would think that too, but how would he possibly afford a lawyer?
I would guess 2 things: lawyer is researching his termination against current law or taking the case on a contingency basis. Either way it would take a couple weeks to get a lawyer to take a look at similar cases for precedent ruling.In either of those cases, a good lawyer would tell his client to keep his mouth shut and stop posting, even anonymously. That would be hard for Redford I'm sure.
He will leave. There is no reason for him to stay.
adding another bit to the mix, heard by the grapevine that there's more to this story involving personal gifts and a possible payola allegation.Anyone hear anything like that?
Payola meaning what?They paid Chris Redford to leave?
Ha-Ha.No, the payola refers to receiving gifts in exchange for endorsement or considerations in kind. I think someone was referring to a rumor alleging that maybe Turney was giving gifts to Redford. I think that's what's being asked.
Far too much has been made of this, I am not in TV news nor do I follow this blog. This blog has been emailed around Shreveport and I got it yesterday. I am friendly with Chris and Michael Turney. Awhile back when they were friends, Michael Turney gave Chris clothes that he had outgrown. I remember at the time Chris posted on facebook that he was dressing better thanks to "a friend". How or why Michael Turney would stalk Chris is a mystery to me. This is all stupid and to have one party drug through the mud and the other party loose his job is beyond weird. You people are mean, I am glad I am not in your business.
We are too, got too many like you in the biz already.
I can not believe this little spat has gotten this far, and not been turned into a reality show. What a load of old s#@t!
OMG! Enough already! Let this die. Who care who buys who clothes and who texts who! Grow UP! And let the rest of us living live on!
If that's what you want then start another thread about KTBS.
How do you start a thread on this website?
Or the drug test.....
Leave the specimen cup on the shelf and close the door.
And we are supposed to care because?
The poster is referring to Redford's not passing a drug test.
If every one had to take an alcohol or drug screen there would not be enough people left to run an entire newscast.
Redford has applied for work with The Bossier City Police Department. :)
Oh Crap, as if they don't have enough whack-jobs on the force as it is.
BCPD hires known alcoholics, and wife and child beaters.
If Bossier even considers this guy, they really need to get their personnel dept examined. Too much BS & Drama with this one. That's probably why he hasn't posted anymore on this blog, doesn't want any background check to turn up any recent crazy rants.
Those back ground checks are not as thorough as they claim. I know several people in law enforcement in both cities and parishes and only one of them was fully checked out.
NEWSFLASH: Chris Redford has just posted on his website that he will now be working for THE INQUISITOR beginning Monday, Jan. 31st as a reporter / photographer
