Monroe GM Canned

Missed this by a week or two but.....Ed Oretelli is no longer General Manager at KNOE/Monroe, LA....He was fired in late September due to an email he sent to Bill O'reilly's show on Fox "News" Channel.  FTV Live reported the news on September 25th.   In August Oretelli had his email read on Fox "News" that read “I’m aggravated when I see smug liberals like Kirsten Powers and Alan Colmes on the air. Enough already with these leftists.”

I seriously doubt anyone really cares. KNOE is like no-wheresville among TV markets. He'd get more press if he ran a convenience store.

And yet 12:38, you I both took time to read and respond to the story.

So your sarcasm is lost on both of us. How ironic?

Hope new owner Gray TV can restore some of KNOE's luster. In the last year that the station owned by the Noe famiky, its news dept. won the DuPont Columbia ... As soon as Hoak media took over, the slide into mediocrity began.

That's a shame, KNOE has produced some great talent over the years. Robert Flores on ESPN cut his teeth there. If you worked there in the 90'-2010 you experience and knowledge is invaluable.

More than likely they wanted to get rid of him for other reasons, but none they could justifiably fire him for.

If this was his only offense he might have gotten a written warning at best.

"N-n-n-nowheresville?" LA has produced some of the country's best known "stars" and, yes, "weirdos". To name a few: cast of "Duck Dynsasty," Jimmy Swagart, Tim McGraw, Campbell Brown, Jerry Lee Lewis, Howard K. Smith, Parker Posey, Mickey Gilley, Huey P Newton, Frank McGee, Ivory Joe Hunter. KNOE’s claim to fame? It was one station that extended the “Golden Years” of TV
From the 50's through 2005 one of the best and strangest small market stations in the US. For fifty years the station owners (the Knoe family) and managers stuck to some core principals unknown in today’s cutthroat media industry—Loyalty, honesty, integrity, generosity. Employees worked into their eighties and news staffers were often on the air for 40-50 years. KNOE won hundreds of news awards including a Dupont award as well as dozens of newscast and investigative reporting awards. When KNOE finally changed hands, an era ended and the doors closed on one of the last and best truly local TV stations in America.

This was not written by Mr.Ortelli. These days it's easy to use someone's email and post a comment. I was hired and worked for him for the past 3 years and Mr.Ortelli is a professional who over the past 3 years restored the pride and ratings to KNOE as one of the South's great news organization and TV stations. The ratings performance and audience growth is outstanding. He left Gray for Philosophical differences after the sale but stayed on for 4 months after the sale.We can only hope Gray can have half the success that this leader had.

KNOE has always had a level of professionalism about it, even though it is a starter station for college grads.

It's competitor, KTVE, I'm not so sure about. Over the years it's had anchors who can barely read teleprompters, anchors who furiously ask on air if they really are on air, etc.

Watching KTVE is like being the nervous parent watching their child in a school play....afraid they're gonna screw up!

My Husband left me for another woman, i am so glad that my husband is back today, with the help of Dr Brave, He is Powerful and Genuine, My name is Becky Miller , I live in California,USA. I'm happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with three kids. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{bravespellcaster@gmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past seven 9 months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website { http://lovespelldrbrave.weebly.com/. } if you have any problem contact Dr Brave ,{ bravespellcaster@gmail.com }, thanks you Dr Brave, i will always be testifying about your good work.
