KTHV Sports Anchor Leaving

KTHV/Channel 11/Little Rock is losing its sports anchor.  Arkansas Online reports Mary Dunleavy is leaving the station after only 3 years.  Dunleavy tweeted she is leaving for WRAL-TV/Raleigh, N.C.  

KTHV recently brought on board Taylor McGregor earlier this month to anchor sports.

WRAL is an incredible station. Privately owned powerhouse. Great market for sports, UNC, DUKE, NC STATE for college sports, Hurricanes for NHL, and Panthers just down the road for NFL. Much more to cover than having to stroke off the University of Arkansas.

I doubt she left. Usually that is announced before they leave if they already have a job. She was let go by THV I would bet and has been looking for a new one the past few weeks. All the good ones leave? Lol thats a good one. She was terrible.

It is a much better job. It's silly to imagine she was forced out.

How many leave without saying where they are going unless they are let go or quit? It was over a month after she left before she said she was going to WRAL. Either way I bet she was tired of having to kiss up to the U of A all the time. I get sick of hearing about the piggies all the time so I imagine they get more sick of it more than anyone.

Don't like hearing about the Hogs, you say? Follow Dunleavy over to North Carolina then, sport.

Taylor seems to know sports well and doesn't sound like a robot reading off of the teleprompter weakly attempting to interject ESPN catch phrases into the sportscast.

Yep I sure don't like hearing about the piggies all the time and watching the fake enthusiasm you see from the news desk when they barely beat a HS team. Ha ha ha.

Have you watched thv the last few years? Name a single one that left that was good and worth keeping with the exception of Alyse Eady.

Mark Edwards. He should have never been let go for Mary, but we all know that was a cost cutting hire. Plus, she wasn't that great...on the desk or appearance.

Mark Edwards is the embodiment of the worst hires by THV ever.

Ashley Blackstone. Alyse was good too, but everything she did, she learned from
Blackstone. When she arrived at THV, she had no journalism skills. She was hired because she was nearly Miss America and that almost win was suppose drive ratings.

Sarah Fortner should have been retained for entertainment value lol. You wouldn't get much info about the weather but you would laugh your arse off. Someone said on here a few years ago she was hired to replace Ed Buckner. Lol.
Yes Ashley was good. Alyse too. Edwards and Dunleavey were terrible. I sure won't miss Dunleavey wearing those stupid hats and calling herself Wild Mary. Nobody cares what you do on your own time just give me the sports report.

Feel sorry for Dawn, Ed and Craig. THV used to be in the ballgame. KARK is moving out of the cellar and replacing THV in almost all news shows. KATV continues to own the market. What happened to THV?

Why would you feel sorry for Dawn, Ed, and Craig? As the lead anchors and meteorologist they are being paid to bring the ratings. Maybe, they are the problem and hence it's time for a change.

Taylor's definitely better than Mary, but not by much. Her stories/sportscasts come off as really corny. Still prefer 7, 16 and 4. THV Sports just keeps on going downhill
