KLRT Anchor Moving to Baton Rouge

This from the tip jar:

Deedra Wilson, morning anchor at KLRT/Channel 16/Little Rock, will be leaving soon to join a fellow Nexstar Broadcasting sister station in Baton Rouge, La.

Wilson joined in-house sister station KARK/Channel 4 as a reporter in 2012, and was later promoted as the lead morning anchor on KLRT.

Nexstar's Baton Rouge affiliate, WVLA, laid off most of their news staff in 2009. Their FOX has no newscast. What will she be doing?

This isn't a tip. She said it on air. They're starting a new morning show there.

Might not been a tip, but was in the tip jar.....as said.

Just because a note is in the cookie jar....does that make it a cookie?

Dude, if you don't like her, change the damn channel. I'm tired of hearing about you not liking her. She's just a weather person and she's not that bad.

You might as well leave too, this town that is. You will never be number one as long as you work where you are. It's all about number one and you know it. The only reason you say it doesn't matter is because you've given up. You know in your heart you will never be as good or as successful as us and I can tell it just tears you up inside.

6:06 am & 8:28 am, Way to go, proud of both of your comments. This blog gets "railroaded" by the haters. It doesn't matter what the subject is or which media individual is spoken of, they constantly throw out their petty juvenile comments. These individuals gloat on just how low they can bring others down to their debased level. Again thank you 6:06 am & 8:28 am.

I agree she is bad but she is not the only one. Thats why 11 will never be number one and they know it but will never admit to it. They should just start from scratch.

I'm so sick of hearing about being number one. Your pay isn't any better, your building is not better and your morale is not better.

Our building sucks, our morale is better (with one or two exceptions) and our pay in general is better. Mine is way better but I make way more than the average person in my position. One of the reasons why is because we are number one and have been forever. It's people like you who aren't and probably never have been number one that like to say it's not important, it doesn't matter, doesn't affect anything, etc... The fact is you don't know what it's like to be like us and you're so jealous you can't think straight. Number one is where it's at. Those who say otherwise are lying to themselves.

Can somebody tell THV the to stop stealing stories from other stations and acting like they just broke a story and never giving credit for the source of information from the people that did the actual work at other news stations . Classic example was yesterday having nothing about the Park plaza robbery at 5pm but then THV used the exact same story that channel 7 had at 5pm news slot suddenly at 6pm news slot with no indication of an update about it at 5pm news.

At the end of the report he wanted absolutely no interaction with thv so ended it by saying sending it back to you instead of saying reporting with THV.
