KTHV Advertises for a New Morning Anchor

From the tip box:


Under TEGNA's website under careers and then under TEGNA media - KTHV - "Morning Show Anchor" opening - Alyse's contract is up in August.  It looks like she is leaving since Laura just signed a few months ago.

Alyse has been shopping her tape around for awhile. She has an agent.

If she really is leaving, that is a big loss for THV. I have enjoyed watching her grow into a great anchor and still miss the chemistry of Tom, Alyse, and Ashley. Maybe THV is just adding another anchor?

Did anybody hear about the story in the democrat gazette a couple of weeks ago about Mitch McCoy who works as a reporter for kark that got an email from a viewer that said he was too gay to be on local news.

Nope we did not here that one. Nor did we care.

I would hate to see her go. She does a really good job and even though Ashley left, I felt like she and Laura and Tom were beginning to gel and made a good team. They are easy to watch. KATV second. KARK only the last couple of minutes before the TODAY Show starts.

THV is cleaning house! Just kidding, Alyse would be a huge loss, she does a great job and is way better than Dawn or the other female evening anchor. Everyone else thv has gotten rid of lately, kudos they should have been gone long ago or never hired in the first place. Sarah Fortner comes to mind lol. Her replacement is ten times better and more professional, good hire there.

2:20, 2:36 acted like a imbecilic troll to you. It's a valid question because of concern for possible bias in news reporting.

THV is not cleaning house as much as it seems because most of the on-air people that leave go to TEGNA stations at larger markets. They are not offering buyouts on the level as they are at TEGNA stations in other markets.

Word around the news desk is that Sarah Fortner is returning.

THV won't make that mistake again.

Sarah Fortier will do weather until severe weather returns and she will disappear again after informing us of a bow and arrow storm is about hit a made up town which will force Ed Buckner to leave his vacation once again early to inform us about a potential tornado.

Lol, yeah I bet Ed is finally getting to enjoy his days off again. Raven is doing a great job. After watching Raven it is painfully obvious just how bad Sarah was/is. Even Merideth is doing a better job than Fortner.

When thv figures out Dawn is overpaid and most Arkansans don't like her then they will show her the door and keep the new younger talent that everyone seems to enjoy watching, Alyse. Probably just as well they keep Dawn and Denise as they will never move or get offers from a bigger market. THV is foolish to let Alyse leave. The other idiots that left recently had to be a blessing. Mark, Sarah, Phil etc. Just when THV might be watchable again the best one there might be leaving. Run Alyse Run! You deserve better!

Something doesn't seem right about this. I don't think Alyse will leave. I'll believe it when they announce it.

Maybe she is looking into the northwest Arkansas news stations for an anchor position so her family that lives up in Fort Smith can view her on TV.

Did THV steal the term "This is Home" from Ashley Furniture? Ashley Furn has been using that in their commercials for quite some time.

Alyse is going to work in New Orleans. I think WDSU is the station.

Wow New Orleans? What a dump that place is. A good friend of mine is a policeman there and you would not believe how bad it is. I would consider that a bad move but good luck to her.

Not a big market jump. Did her husband get a job transfer?
