This is not a surprised. I expected here not to come back from maternity leave earlier this year.

But the voice is sooo reminiscent of a high-school cheerleader voice... as in "let's make banners for the pep-ralley" voice. :( Whoever views the audition tapes at KTBS must be tone-deaf and sometimes blind.

KTBS motto: "If they're blonde, they're hired!"

That seems to be the case. Glad I'm able to sleep in now and miss all 3 morning shows. They rate tolerable, to bad, to omg I can't believe they are allowed to put this crap out over the air.

They just have to work cheap to get hired.
White and blonde is just a bonus.

I've been told that if you cannot say something good about someone you should just say nothing.

Concerning Chrissie Coile and her on air abilities....

Or the lack thereof?

As far as local TV talent is concerned, they'd be lost without the teleprompter and a director in their ear. Not too many bright bulbs on TV in our neck of the woods.

@8:45 AM We are talking about Wendi, not Chrissi.

Does any one notice KTBS using more and more FOX "talking" points?

They've been doing it for years. They're just being more blatant about it.

Having worked at KTBS I can tell you first hand that management is super-conservative and most of the on-air folks are ultra conservative too. Their POV is all that matters and any employee with an alternative opinion is wise to keep it to themselves.

Congratulations on being a former KTBS employee! Life is soooooo much better away from there.

Glad to know I'm not the only one who's noticed the Fox thing.

KTBS folks live in their own bubble and are pretty clueless for the most part. As long as they tow the line and keep getting paid, that's all they're really about.

Random KTBS Question: What ever happened to Barbra Stewart, that did the mid day show sometimes about 10 years ago. Also, Leslie Fisher that did weather for a short time.

Barbara who? Leslie what? I've been watching KTBS since the 70's and don't remember either. So many have come and gone over the past 10-15 years.

I'm watching right now, and see they are using a new graphics package.

those names are barely recognizable ...they were hardly blips on the KTBS radar as they were employed for maybe 6 months at the most..holy smokes folks..no one cares about those two. KTBS is a revolving door...clock in at the beginning of the work day and at the 5pm clock...you may be out of a job. It's a shitty place to work!!!

And that is why there are more of us former KTBS employees then current KTBS employees.

I think the one lady who did weather was on short-term contract and left after she found a better job. I seem to recall hearing her comment to colleagues that she wasn't planning to hang around KTBS too long.

I remember both of them. They both did the morning & midday news in the late '90s. You probably don't remember them because they didn't stay long.
