New Anchor on the Air in Northwest Arkansas

This from the tip box: Several KFSM viewers have emailed saying a new blond anchor is on the air and has taken the place of MIA Ashley Beck and her bio has been taken down from the station's website.

What a stark contrast to Ashley. At first glance, she reminds me of A.B. Stoddard who is a Fox News contributor. I'll reserve judgment on her but she is just too edgy for my taste. She needs to take a chill pill.

Hopefully she will chill out a little. Initial impression is that she smiles/poses/reads like she has as a corn cob stuck somewhere.

I'm sure she will get better, but lord you're in NWA. People are chill here. We get what, like 2 or 3 really juicy stories a year?

Though Beck's bio has been removed from the station's website as of yesterday they were still giving the standard 'leave of absence' response on their Facebook page. Beck's 5News Facebook page is still up.

Liza Danver's bio reads a little weird. She hasn't been on TV for more than a year and was apparently most recently selling insurance in Ohio. The distance she moved for this job as well as her experience and previous working relationship with KFSM's news director indicate this is KFSM's long term solution for a 2nd anchor. Darren Bob seemed absolutley giddy to have anyone sitting there.

Interestingly, last nights news made mention of a long term KFSM employee retiring but absolutely no mention of Beck.

Oh, the hillbilly/redneck population down there are freaking out about the Beck replacement.

WHERE IS ASHLEY BECK?!

I'll have to watch 5News tomorrow to see the anchor. I'm going to need a stiff drink... Like Ned in Little Rock?

Oh geez give her a break. She's been on the job literally 4 days and didn't come up through the morning show or as a local reporter so this is all new to her. Just since Friday I can see marked improvement. So much better than watching Darren Bob's jowls.

The sad truth, to those at 40/29, is that they get blown away by KNWA and KFSM during every ratings book.

As long as they're blonde, they have "talent."

What? I've seen the numbers myself. All opinions aside, 40/29 is way above KNWA in the ratings, and is closing the gap against KFSM in several dayparts

I like the new female sidekick on KFSM. She is sharp, on edge and carrying her weight clearly. She's complimenting Darren. She is excited and biting the bit ready to run the furlong. I can tell she smokes, can you? What do you expect? There's no real reason why she should be made fun of. I take her more seriously than I did Ashley because Ashley was a bit distracting due to her attractiveness. What part of listening and absorbing and comprehending the news do we not understand? Plus she doesn't have the southern hickerbilly twang which is annoying and unattractive.

*"I can tell she smokes, can you?"

That is gold... Stay classy, River Valley/redneck/hillbilly/etc territory.

I still think she's doing rehab for her alcoholism.

Actually, I know her personally and she doesn't smoke. Just FYI.

I ask this question daily while watching Paige. Someone needs to take the girl shopping because her outfits don't belong on an anchor desk. She wants to be a runway model instead of an anchor. If she would spend more time reading her scripts and preparing for a newscast instead of focusing on how she looks, she'd see a lot more improvement.

Who is the new redhead weather teller on KFSM, saw her last weekend. Big beasts, kinda reminds me of Hendricks, has the potential to win fans like Gina did

Can someone please tell Katelynn Zoellner that her bottom lipstick does not need to be as wide at the corners of her mouth as it is in the middle of the lip? She looks like a 5 year old playing who played with mom's lipstick.

After days and days of "Where is Ashley Beck," she has suddenly resurfaced. On her Facebook page, she has posted that she has moved to Los Angeles.
