40/29 Anchor Leaving...

This from the tip box:

KHBS/KHOG/Channels 40/29Fort Smith is losing one of its main anchors.  Angela Taylor is leaving Northwest Arkansas for Orlando, Florida:

It's a bittersweet day for me and my family. For nearly 5 years we have made beautiful Arkansas our home. Turner was just a year old and we took a chance in a place we knew nothing about. It ended up being one of the best decisions we ever made. It's here we made our best friends, (FarmJacks Rock), I introduced my husband to the wonderful game of soccer, we became Hog fans (Go Razorback soccer), campers, hikers, and nature lovers. It's been a wonderful 5 years, but it's time to take my family to a new kingdom where I can work my magic. I've been offered an evening anchor job at WESH in Orlando, a sister station of 40/29. This is an amazing opportunity for my career. And what 5 year old doesn't want Elsa and Anna as neighbors? We are excited about what's ahead, but we will miss all of you who made my family yours and welcomed me into your home every evening. Thank you for making this place so special. And, if you ever come to Florida, you have a free place to stay. "If you can

EGADS!! now we're left with Craig Cannon, who will NEVER leave! this market cannot keep good talent. 40/29 has lost most of its best people, probably due to poor pay & having to double as reporters as well. i bet laura huckabee is fuming that she can't take her "talents" elsewhere....

morale is mostly low at 40/29 primarily due to the ND & ADD. angela is one of many who is fed up and this is one of the main reasons she is leaving. many are looking to other hearst stations to get around contracts

Didn't they recently do a poll that put THV at the top?

Yes they did, and they voted the weather team of THV as the best. It went: Sarah, Tom, then Ed. You cannot go by ratings always.

morale is very low. everyone wants out due to the ND. This week alone angela, a director that worked at the station for 20 years, and a photographer all announced they were leaving. several others are not far behind

If you think ratings don't tell all, than neither do polls. THV is a joke. It looks like college crap.

The people of arkansas have spoken and they like The the best. No use arguing against the will of the people. I am a veteran of two years in this game so I know a thing or two.

Veteran of two years from what? Poll watching? You make no sense. People don't watch that station. You're a joke too.

I saw that poll too, Sarah came out on top which isn't surprising. Ed has sucked a big one here lately. Does he have autism or something? I don't want my children watching him.

fortner is a joke and why 11 hired her is beyond anybody. the same can be said about meredith mitchell. hire someone qualified and can do a good job. not stutter every 5 seconds and say stuff like it's wet outside because it's raining. really.what a joke

Seriously, the only thing worse than Sarah is Ed.

She sucks? Sounds good to me! When can we go out?

So many bitter people on this site. The girl does a fantastic job and the vast majority of people who see her love her. That means a lot more than some faceless coward online trying to tear someone down. I'd like to see these news personalities that you all seem to envision that are so perfect and without reproach. Where are they because no matter who is mentioned on this site, all kinds of folks have to come out talking bad about them. It's pathetic and you are pathetic for doing it. I hope you aren't this childish in your everyday lives.

Angela looks a lot like Ashley Katz.

Sarah's not horrible but I do agree she has a nice backside - and front side, side-side, etc. Loves me some Sarah!

Unfortunately, I can't listen to Sunrise Anchor Yuna Lee.. her voice is too high. There were other anchor women already employed .. wonder why one of them wasn't give the position? Oh well, I just watch another station weekday mornings. Congrats Mrs. Taylor.. you will be missed.

The best anchor in the NWA/Ft Smith market is flyin' the coop. Craig is a good guy... Laura Huckabee is just awful. At least we got rid of Neely.

THV has the garden cat. Sorry, I fell in love... RIP.

all Laura Huckabee is good at, is showing off her bustline and trying to
act "perky" every time she's in front of the camera

YES, I can say for sure that the problem at KHBS\KHOG is the morale. We thought Brian the former GM was rough to work under but the new GM is so much into everyone's business Micro managing instead of letting the talented people who know how to do their jobs and all the intricacies that go with it ( The GM has a perception issue and only sees the top and thinks he can run everyone's department without knowing what is truly involved in getting their jobs done that the morale has gone to crap! Its like a dog chasing his own tail around there. When people can work without fear of write ups or terminations for idiotic reasoning on the GMs part you would have a station full of talented people of which would work harder to be the best station because they would have pride in doing their job and go that extra because it would feel like they owned it and you would have a team of awesome people wanting to make it the best station out there.All the good ones are or have left and the whispers continue on the remaining crew. Srry so long ,just so much to say cant put it all down.

Western Central and Northwestern Arkansas is a starter market for most talent out of college. With that being said, you can't expect good creative and progressive talent to stay here for very long as they're building their resumes and seeking to move up to better more lucrative markets elsewhere, namely larger metropolitan cities and markets...everyone needs to understand the grasp of reality here. Be glad and appreciative that we have them here for as long as we do. I've lived in larger markets where they never have turnover and faces get old real quick.
