Former LR Anchor Finds a Home in OKC

Former KARK morning anchor Wendy Suares is moving to bigger and better things.  Suares announced on her Facebook page she is moving to Oklahoma City to become the morning anchor at KOKH/Fox 25.  Suares was one of dozens of KARK/KLRT employees let go when Mission Broadcasting purchased KLRT/KASN earlier this year.

Wendy is really talented and will go far. But I wouldn't characterize this as bigger and better things. She jumped about ten markets and went from a 3rd place station to a 4th place station. The Fox Shop in OKC is awful. I'd call this a lateral move...but she will be somewhere big in a couple of years.

Good luck Wendy, you need it where you're going. 11:17 is right about the "lateral move." A couple of friends from college worked at KOKH. Both of them HATED it and left the day their contracts were up.

I can guarantee you the salary isn't "lateral."

All the best, Wendy! OKC's gain is LR's loss.

I wonder if anyone will continue with that "Wendy lost" rhetoric. Doesn't look like she lost.

Thanks Wendy.

Guess it depends by what you mean by lost. Packing up and moving to Oklahoma City doesn't sound like winning to me.

As someone who knows what happened behind the scenes with 4 dropping the ball in keeping her, I can tell you they should be glad Wendy never said one single negative thing about her departure. Class act.

Only one thing wrong . . . It's Oklahoma.

You think you know but I do know and 4 didn't drop ball. Blame is directed in wrong way.

Anybody who thinks Wendy got a lot more money at KOKH doesn't know what they are talking about. They a penny pinching outfit...kind of like KARK. I think Wendy did lose...because she deserves better.

I'd surprised if he wasn't. Broadcasting management is full of Don Draper's.

9:57, you are talking about the old news director that got fired last year. The new one is NOTHING like that.

Who the heck cares? She was just an anchor. Dime a dozen.

She went from Nexstar to Sinclair

Oh God! She went to a Sinclair station? I'm so sorry Wendy. All of their stations are horrible and cheap. It probably is the only ownership group that is WORSE than Nexstar...yikes!

Spot on 11:35 PM. I've worked for both Nexstar and Sinclair, and Sinclair IS worse then Nexstar. Not by much, but their a horrible organization to work and deal with.

Wendy isn't hot. What do you expect?

Yes, Wendy is not attractive. She should consider a different line of work.

The simply fact is Mallory is hotter than her. She should have looked in the mirror and realized that fact before she started getting delusions that she needed more money to do an easy job. Anchors and reporters are the easiest people to replace in a newsroom. There are lots of talented people waiting for you to get an ego and act as stupid as she did.

Who cares who's hot, and who's not. This is broadcasting. This is not the Miss Arkansas contest.

yes, but big pay raise from where she was and fewer working hours!

Agreed. Did you know they actually sent her a termination letter and told her she had to re-apply for her job last year when she was on forced bed-rest---- carrying twins!?

I'm curious about Sinclair. Tell us more about what it is like, details, etc.

Hate to tell you: she turned down two other offers which both paid more than KARK.

the simple fact is you can't write: The proper grammar is "Mallory is hotter than SHE".

I can't tell if the people thinking female reporters aren't hired for their looks are kidding us or kidding themselves. If you really think that's true, I feel sorry for you and your future.

In regards to Mallory, I'd hit it. #mostguyswould

Most are hired for their good looks. A few chubbies are hired to cover EEOC.

Looks wouldn't be a requirement for radio. But if you think it isn't a factor for TV, you are mistaken.

If you think Fox News is the #1 cable news channel for anything other than its eye-candy, you are wrong. Bleach blondes, short skirts & long legs all day long.

Because it's imperative we see the anchor's legs as she reads the prompter.
