She also is a reporter for in-house sister station KLRT.

Still wonder why they fired Wendy Suares. I've seen her on air on trips to OKC and she's better than anything 3/16 has on air.

Because it turns out she's not the Mexican they were hoping for. She's white after all.

So how were the sweeps results? Did removing Liz Massey from the KTHV lineup help or hurt KTHV sweeps results?

KATV swept everything, including demos. The domination continues.

They fired Wendy because they're goddamn idiots. I mean everyone sees that, right? Right?

KARK is famous for letting quality people go.

What happened to Mellisa Simas who was the lead anchor at KARK until she slowly disappeared. I bet KARk wishes they had kept her around .

Melissa Simas was great. She went home to Boston. I wish she were still here.

I thought Maxine was hired by the Shreveport station. Isn't that her just a couple of spots down on this blog?

Yeah, we get it. You're not smart enough to tell one blonde from another. Good one.

Talking heads a.k.a. news readers come and go. Get out while you are young and get a real job you can retire from. Way too much competition among reporters especially those sitting at the anchor desk.

That's just a nice way of firing someone.

11:35, It's Melissa Simas, not Simos. No one said she was blonde, just said she was a fantastic anchor. It's Jancey Sheats, not Jancy Katz and Ashley Ketz, not Ashley Katz. If you are going comment about someone, at least know who you are commenting about.

Yes, Sa Heeb.

I recommend you get out of tv or radio. Broadcasting is a dead-end job. Look around you and see how they float in-and-out. Automation will soon replace you unless you are a talking head, tech, or janitor. The janitor will be the last to leave.

Wasn't there a guy on Fox 17 and KARK doing weather and reporting. Name was Steve, I think. What happened to him...did he get fired too?
