Get out of here! Denise is extremely talented on the desk and in the field. Additionally, she is a nice, smart person. She deserves this opportunity.

This page is full of negative comments and attitudes. My goodness, it will not kill anyone to offer a kind, true response.

I think the poster is talking about the talent could have done better, not the station.

@11:33 One would hope so. I thought the same thing, but then I realized 9:37 said "they". I think 9:37 was referring to KTHV, which is actually an "it". Had the poster been talking about Denise I think he/she would have said "she".

I, too, think Denise could have done better; however, it's not so bad since she's been out for a bit. She will do her time then move on to better things.

Having watched her on KSLA, I'd say she's middle of the road at best.

I always thought she was a good anchor and seemed to project a pleasant personality. Compared with some of these anchor divas, I'd rather listen/watch Denise. But I'll agree...going to Little Rock station like this...ugh!

Didn't Denise leave KSLA to join her boyfriend or husband with his new job at Rice or the University of Houston? What happened there?

Will someone at eleven also answer the question of what Dawn Scott is looking at when in the middle of a story she'll either look off camera or even UP at the ceiling?

Strangest thing I've ever seen on news.

Denise left KSLA in Shreveport for Houston 13 months ago. Did her collage coach husband leave his coaching job with the University of Houston for a coaching job in Little Rock, or did they split up? Anyone? Anyone?

THV slipped in every newscast. KARK had nice jumps in their newscast but KATV dominated across the board.

another way to put it, is KATV lossed some ground but continues to be ahead of the others.

Word is Nick is scared. It wasn't a good book for KATV.

KATV was up in every newscast. KTHV was down in AM and 10PM. KARK was up in AM,5PM and 10PM. They were flat at 6. KLRT was up in AM, 5:30PM and 9PM. Conclusion is 7 is king and 4 is really getting to 11. Fox is what it always had been.

So apparently Jeanette Reyes is leaving KATV and heading to Washington?

don't argue with KATV people about how great their books are. Unlike us, their jobs depend on them being exponentially better, but we get paid the same.

So now losing constantly to KATV is actually better than winning? Y'all crack me up.

It isn't better or worse. The way I hear it, from KATV'S own staff members, it's no big party over there. Big ratings just make sales staffers happy. Newsroom employees don't get anything extra out of it. Unless you are the anchor, no one will attribute any of the success to you (they might pat you on the back, but they wont open up their pocketbooks). Why do you care? Or do you just like bragging?

She's bland and looks terrified.

Is it not obvious why they let experienced news anchor Liz Massey go and hired Middleton?

They felt they needed to hire an attractive black anchor with hopes of boosting ratings with black viewers.
Apparently the strategy didn't work out for them.
