Shreveport Station Welcomes Back Former Longtime Anchor

Source:KTBS.com KTBS is pleased to announce that Sherri Talley is returning to the KTBS 3 News desk, Monday, August 4th.

“I’m so excited to be back with the team that has a sharper-than-ever focus on good, quality journalism,” said Sherri Talley.

Talley is referring to KTBS’ commitment to In-Depth and Investigative journalism. Upon her return, Talley will have reporting responsibilities in addition to her role as anchor.

Viewers know Talley from having watched her report and anchor in the ArkLaTex for decades. A few years ago, Talley left the news business to pursue other opportunities in public relations and social media.

She will rejoin old friend and colleague Gerry May on KTBS 3 News at 6:00.

“I’m really looking forward to working with Gerry and Joe and the rest of the team, again,” she said. “KTBS is like a family to me. It’s good to be back home.”


Talley left KTBS abruptly in April 2011.  Since then she has work with the United Way and started her own PR firm.

What, what, WWHAT!!! Well isn't this interesting. I'm thrilled Sherri is back, but I'm shocked KTBS finally made a good hiring decision. Did they ask her to come back, or did she ask to come back? Anyone have the 411 on this deal?

Well she left in a huff 'cuz she had to do more with the website news content and let's just say that it involved more effort than smiling and reading the prompter. She quit once before but KTBS offered her more $$$. But that didn't happen last time. Now she's going to do more reporting? We'll see. I think this is a way to push Jody out eventually. That you can make book on. Deja Vu a la Liz Swaine.

I see KTBS is using their studio 321 set. Are they redoing their studio?

Jessie should stay at 5:00 and report, which is where she was before Wendi left.

Another white person at KTBS? They can't be serious. The city is 55% Black, and they are getting sued for wrongfully firing the one good person of color they had (congrats to Ronda for going to national tv) . They hired that ONE black guy who has a permanent stick up his ass, and is married to a white woman. If you turn on most of the news, but especially KTBS you'd think the city's racial demographics were reversed +/- 25%. I thought there were FCC rules for demo representation.

Uh...since Jody's DUI, you still think so 4:46? How about the times she had trouble reading the prompter during the 10? I've heard that she pretty much didn't care anymore. I see a rehab vacation in her future.

Saw Sherri Talley back on air. Hair and makeup need help and well, she's not the cute young thang anymore. Needs a more updated look. Too much sun exposure adds years to your look.

Gal needs to go easy on the erase around the eyes, she looks like a reverse raccoon on air.

8:25 PM -- Ouch! But hey, you called it like it is. This part of the country's women has a weird sense of the proper use of makeup. It's like they've never seen a copy of Vogue or Cosmo. What is with these TV hillbillies?
