Why is she acting like Tulsa is up by Chicago ,Illinois .When we all know thaTulsa is next door to Fayetteville and is an hour and half to 2 hour drive from Fayetteville and its closer than Little Rock. And I know people who live Fayetteville and have family in Little Rock and see them all the time. I wonder if she didn't get the raise she was looking for.

She was born in Little Rock while her Dad was at KTHV. He was an anchor. I can see why she is moving. If you read her book about her being a survivor of domestic violence by her first husband, she is very close to her family. That closeness strengthened during the abuse she had. She is pictured with her dad on Facebook.

For 12:37, your comment shows your ignorance. I don't know Neile except for reading her book and watching the news, but it appeared she tried to much in the community. She also showed much post-traumatic growth in her efforts after her divorce and tried to channel that growth into worthwhile efforts.

As a Christian, I have been ashamed of the lewd, sexually coarse shallow comments posted recently that have nothing to do with the stories posted. I don't force my beliefs. I am making a statement as a grace-centered person. I watch the news and appreciate articles about news in the Little Rock and local markets that impact the news I watch on TV and view on the Internet. I have a journalism degree. As one who has done volunteer work and research on domestic violence and spoken at conferences about domestic violence, I felt led to post about Neile. Neile's book can be found on Amazon.

Sam Jones. He was before B.J. Sams. Sam Jones later anchored at KJRH and worked at KOTV in Tulsa.

One of the best, if not the best, anchor in the market. I heard her speak about her book and domestic violence issues at Cross Church in Rogers a couple of years ago. I thought she had remarried. Is husband moving with her?

I remember George Moore anchoring at KTHV before B.J. Sams but not a Sam Jones.

Had to be back in the 60's or before.
