No More News For Former Shreveport Reporter

Seems former KTBS crime reporter Chris Redford is getting out of the news biz all together.  Here's a post from his facebook page:  

Will no longer be doing news. God has called me to work with the area's homeless veterans. I've accepted a position as an outreach coordinator with the VOA (pending the background check & references). It's going to be a very rewarding challenge. It's time I start making a difference instead of just making a living. To all my friends I've met through reporting... y'all are the best!! To All the Law Enforcement Officers out there... Thank you for allowing me to show you off. It's been an honor I'll treasure forever. You all deserve so much more than you receive. Not one day goes by I don't thank God for your dedication, service and loyalty. You are truly my best friends. I'm a better person thanks to you. Everyone reading this has made a difference in my life and I'll forever be grateful and indebted. God is great!

Bad move. I've known several people who've worked at the VOA. None of them lasted long term.

He won't pass a background check or any other kind of check.

10:14PM -- My thoughts exactly. VOA seems to be one of those transitional gigs. I give it 6 maybe 7 months.

10:57 PM Yeah, transitional is the most polite way of putting it.

Spot on 10:14 PM. The VOA is a terrible place to work. As bad, if not worse, then KTBS. Good luck Chris. You'll need it.

Yeah, I have to agree with the previous statement. Both KTBS and the VOA are terrible places to work.

Elaborate more on the situation at VOA, please. I'm curious.

Folks If they do a background check, he will not be working there period. If you can't pass a background check for Bossier Police, it is doubtful you can pass one anywhere. This one is nut case. He did himself in.

VOA is typical community/social faith-based bureaucracy that promotes itself as a charity doing good works. While it has a positive role in the community, it is run by morons who wouldn't make it in the real corporate world. Anyone who transitioned from media thinking they could work there found out real fast what a "suck-o" organization it is to work for. They cross swords with the management and either resign or get fired.

Exactly. Chris is not the first former KTBS employee to go work at VOA, and will not be the last. Good luck to him. He will need it.

Seems to be a bit of a drama-queen if I remember correctly. Guy has no filter on things that most people would find repulsive. Not a good thing to have in any circumstance.

Well if this is what Chris wants then good luck to him. Going from KTBS to VOA is a "from the frying pan into the fire" situation. I've known 6 or 7 people who worked at VOA. The longest any of them lasted was three years, and she belongs in padded room in Pineville.

I wonder if VOA knows he's posting underwear shots on facebook. Says he's tracking his progress. Do we need to see below the waist? Looks like a pic Michael Turney would be proud of. What kinds of jobs is Redford seeking?

Both of their facebook pages are public .Turney is at Cotillion with his family and the Republicans. Redford is posting near naked bathroom mirror pics . This tells me all I need to know. Save it for the gay sites Redford.

Why are you looking at his Facebook page?

The original thread is about Chris Redford's facebook . Why would we not all look ?

He wants us to look. Why else would he post himself in his underwear? Check out his "likes". Now he' a nudist too.. LOL..

If you dislike Redford so much why look at his facebook? Unless you're a voyeur who gets off on it.

Maybe thats why he posts it.

Maybe that's why you keep looking.

Who cares who looks at chris redford's facebook ? Posting near naked pics is a cry for help.

Agreed. Anyone who would put himself on display as a sexual object has real issues. I pray for him.

People put TMI on facebook.

This guy seems to have a compulsive need to comment about everything with such dramatic emphasis. Betcha if he went one week without posting, he'd explode! Such a need for attention ain't too healthy.

That's a facebook thing.
