KTBS hired Carly before Chrissi announced that she was quitting. Carly announced in early Dec. that Dec. 6th would be her last day at Fox61 and that she would be starting in late Dec. with KTBS as a morning anchor.

You mean before Chrissi "officially announced" she was quitting? I started seeing the promo announcing Carly's arrival last week. I laugh every time I hear her name. It sounds just like one of my Irish grandmothers phrases. "And carlyflynnmorgan to you."

@8:54 Approximately a week apart, Carly and Chrissi officially announced their futures via Facebook.

Neither Wendi nor Carly was on this morning.

The people who need to know, their bosses, knew before it was officially announced.

With Carly coming from a Fox affiliate, does this mean her reporting will be fair and balanced?

More musical anchor chairs....

Elsa Gillis named new weekend anchor at KTBS, replacing Jessica Crandall.

Crandall takes over 5 & 6pm weekdays from Jody Lowery....where's Jody going? BTW, Gillis announced the move in November...way before KTBS.

Jody's not leaving. She'll be anchoring the 9/10pm with Devon Patton...and supposedly doing more reporting.

This morning Jessica C. held down the "fort". There was no Wendi. There was no Carly.

Anchor moves & doing more reporting? Usually that's management's way of hinting that you might want to put your resume and demo video together.
Last time KTBS did that was to Liz Swaine and she left soon after.

Actually, should read, "Neither Wendi nor Carly WERE on this morning.

Neither Were, not neither was.

And, the girl is a twin of Ashley Ketz.

@7:23 AM, January 01, 2014,

INCORRECT: "Neither Wendi nor Carly WERE on this morning.”

CORRECT: “Neither Wendi nor Carly WAS on this morning.”
----------------------------------

Singular Verb with Singular Elements

If the pairings either/or (often the either is omitted) or neither/nor form part of the subject of a verb and both elements are singular, then the verb must be singular too. 

For example:
(1) Neither Mark nor Dawn is at the function.
(As Mark is singular (i.e., one person) and Dawn is singular, then is is correct. (The plural version are would be wrong.)

(2) Neither Dickens nor Thackeray was a panderer to the public taste. Dickens (singular), Thackeray (singular), was (singular – i.e., not were panderers)

(3) Neither John nor Betty is at home.

If both elements are singular, use the singular form.

Neither Jeremy nor Sarah was in the shop at the time of the theft.(i.e., not were in the shop)


@ 7:23 A.M. Happy New Year and stop SHOUTING, especially when you are wrong!

The statement is proved like this.

"Neither WERE on this morning."

This is the correct way to write this.

Obviously, you are in broadcast where Grammar is secondary.

Where did you go to school?

Jodi's no longer on the 5 and 6? I HATE this move!!! George and his minions are doing their best to force me to stop watching all together.

That's the latest rumor. I'm with the other poster who said this might be management's way of easing Jody out the door. Anytime a key evening anchor gets reassigned to late night and reporting, it's a hint to beef up the resume and reel and find another gig.

-------------------------------
Not where you went because I was taught the rules of grammar.

“Neither” is a singular subject. “Were” is a plural verb.

Therefore, “Neither WERE on this morning” is grammatically incorrect.

Recognize, realize and remember the following rules of grammar:

1. Basic Rule:
The basic rule states that a singular subject takes a singular verb.

2. Rule:
When either and neither are subjects, they always take singular verbs.

Examples:

Neither of them is available to speak right now.

Either of us is capable of doing the job.

3. Rule:
Two singular subjects connected by either/or or neither/nor require a singular verb as in Rule 1.

Examples:
Neither Juan nor Carmen is available.
Either Kiana or Casey is helping today with stage decorations.

were: (verb) 1. the plural form of the past tense (indicative mood) of be and the singular form used with you.

Incorrect: “Neither were on this morning.”

Correct: “Neither was on this morning.”

@8:24 PM LMHO!!!

I'm pretty sure that KTBS management has a no-compete on contracts. I know for a fact they did this with new salespeople so you can bet it's the same for on-air. People can argue these are illegal but I've seen them enforced, it all depends on how good a lawyer was who drew them up.

I posted the 6:59 PM comment. After discovering the new girl on the KTAL morning show, I will be watching KTAL exclusively for all my local news. I can't believe I am saying this being a Shreveport native and a loyal KTBS viewer for almost 40 years.

Seems like Jessica Crandall has given her hair more blonde highlights than when she first arrived at KTBS. Could be that KTBS bosses "prefer blondes"?

And although she's improved her delivery...still very rough & shaky vocals. Voice doesn't have enough punch to be a prime news anchor.
Why is she on at 5 & 6?

Saw her newscast today for the first time. Does anyone at 3 audition these folks before they get hired?
She almost has the same mousey vocal skills as Jessica Crandall. Are they conciously going for that sound? It is annoying!!

Gracious Heavens, I am afraid her voice will peel paint off my wall.
Didn't anyone listen to the quality of her voice when she auditioned? I cannot get past it.

I see that Wendi Redman is not on mornings anymore. Seemed like a nice person, but I wonder if she realizes how many times she remarks "YEAH" when she has a conversation with the others on camera. It is pronounced in that drawn out way some teenage girls say it and it used almost every other word...
