Everything about her has been removed from the 5News website including the few stories she did for the station. She's going to be lucky to get bus fare back to Ohio.

Give her another chance. She is young.

you'd think she'd had heard all the stories about Ashley Beck, & would've known to walk the straight & narrow. what is it about working at channel 5 that drives the female anchors to drinking & driving?

YOUNG? SHE DAMN NEAR 40! KFSM HAD A MALE WEEKEND ANCHOR/REPORTER GET A DWI AND HE WAS IMMEDIATELY TERMINATED. 5NEWS WEBSITE AND FACEBOOK HAVE BEEN SCRUBBED OF HER LIKENESS. KFSM IS NOTORIOUSLY CHEAP, WAS HOPING TRIBUNE OWNERSHIP WOULD BRING MORE PROFESSIONALISM BUT INSTEAD WE GET A PARADE OF REPORTERS BARELY OUT OF COLLEGE WHO DO MOST OF THEIR REPORTING BY INTERVIEWING PEOPLE AT GAS STATIONS. GARRETT LEWIS IS THE ONLY THING HOLDING THAT STATION TOGETHER. MAY AS WELL GIVE THE ANCHOR JOB TO HIS SISTER.

Lol, now even 5News has taken down their online story of her being arrested. It's like she was never even there. I'd sure like to see Ashley Beck back but I'm betting she's gotten really fat.

When will some of these news anchors realize they are supposed to read the news and not make the news?

I guess going from the Ashely Beck fiasco to another full on Chet Bonar situation wasn't what Channel 5 management was hoping for. I suppose firing her was the only option.

Liza has an excellent speaking voice for a newscaster. She's not nasal or a whiner, as so many female anchors are. I hope KFSM gives her a break.

Garrett Lewis what a clown. They film the news from someones basement. They only know one think to report and that is weather.

They all talk sooooo slow. They act like they are half asleep. Garrett sister has NO LIPS she is only there Bc of him. They need to just shut it off the air they are already dead.

The woman is human and she made a mistake. Ashley Beck returned to the air for a while before disappearing again. Isn't Chet Bonar deceased? IF so, please let the comments about him not resurface. I miss Bridget Schultz, Beth Hunnicutt-Deramus-Walters. I do NOT miss Kelly Kemp, she had too much "I am in total love with myself" to be real.

This isn't her 1st mistake and seems to be at least the 3rd time she's made the same mistake. That KFSM was willing to take a chance on her shows how STUPID and increasingly DESPERATE they really are.

"Danver had been out of the biz for a little more than a year, working as a business developer for MB Senior Solutions. Before that, she spent 3 years at WKEF in Dayton. Before Dayton, she was at Lin's WISH-TV in Indianapolis, where she was arrested twice in six months for DUI and leaving the scene of an accident. She was sentenced to jail."

So? Who did she hurt? No one? Then it's just a traffic citation that MADD has tricked you into thinking is worse than any other. But statically it's not worse. In fact, texting while driving is far worse. But that's not a sin so you don't care.

Just give the job to Heather Lewis. She's local and well liked.

Well 6:20 she has definitely hurt herself and her future employment opportunities. I doubt that after literally 2 weeks on the job KFSM is going to allow her to make a tearful apology and serve a 1 week suspension like they did with Ashley Beck. Ms. Danver's job will occasionally require her to drive places and I'm sure her employer would prefer to know they can trust her to be sober during that time and not a public menace.

Unfortunately, this type of behavior is common with a certain 'demographic' of people nowadays. The current culture of low morality and me-first has produced this sort of creature and will continue to do so. In my line of business, which is the medical profession, I am bombarded with people who have allowed rampant hedonism to ruin their lives. When will these men and women stop behaving as children and allow God to bring them peace? Because of what I do for a living, I am respected and revered in my community, but I do not believe it is my calling to become some sort of social warrior. Instead, I have come to this blog because I have rarely seen such bitter and worthless imbeciles in my life and the Lord has shown me that they need my words of motivation.

I never thought I would be saying this, but here it goes. After watching Heather Lewis pulling double duty, 6 and 10, and then the morning news I have been impressed. Perhaps KFSM. should move her to the evening. I believe she has earned it.

I heard Garrett was wanting to leave a few years ago. Can you imagine KFSM without Garrett? Why would anyone watch? To see another 20 something who doesn't know how to read off the prompter?

Probably developed drinking problems when they had to come to Arkansas for work and it progressed once they saw where they had to live. Heck it depresses me to think about it.

Ashley Beck's KFSM profile is still listed too though her personal Facebook page was recently updated to say she is now a resident of Los Angeles, California.

All you eligible bachelors should check out Liza Danver's dating profile. Her profession is "journalist", she drinks "socially", and expects a steak dinner on the 1st date.

Maybe it's time the community takes ownership of television media (a station per se). Did you know that collectively, a community (city/municipality) can own a commercial television station? It would be better managed, KFSM, than these current present owners. No doubt, they’re cheap and poorly managed. Does anyone know if the present owners are from here locally, or are they owned by an investment venture consortium? Quality television journalist talent isn’t cheap. Sorry for Liza's demise. We're such a judgmental hypocritical society. We all have our conundrums and poor habits. In my world, I’d give 99% of talent a second chance. Oh well, I was fired from a local radio station years ago, but was pleasantly pleased when the jerk that fired me was later let go. The owner is still a prick in business and pays his help horrible wages. How interesting he’s a Christian. Fool.

Liza was termed for a DUI in the past while in Ohio. This is # 2. Type Liza Danver in Bing and click on Images. She has some other issues it appears.

I don’t know why she was being considered as young and I think both of them should be given exemplary punishment so people get to know how tough DUI can be. My uncle who works with a Los Angeles DUI lawyer had contrasting views and said nothing much would be done in this case.

I've never heard of a community owning/running a tv station but I think it's a great idea! And you are absolutely right about living in a judgemental & hypocritical society, very sad.

People are assholes, try not to let it bother you. I am so glad to hear that Ashley has gotten a beautiful recovery! She seemed like a very sweet girl & I hope she doesn't let the foolishness & hateful things people say bring her down, I hope she continues to do well, make it BIG & show all these assholes that she may have made a mistake but it didn't destroy her, that she rose above it all��
