    Saw former KFOR anchor Bob Frier in Orlando last month. He is the main weeknight anchor for WKMG, which is also known as 'local6'. He does a great job, IMO.

    In case you guys wanted to know, Sophia Reza is leaving KOCO. Heading to Dallas. I think the turnover rate is about up to 70% now for both on air and off air in one year's time.
    ...and they say "change is good"

    Adam Slinger left soon after Tierney too. Its sad to see Sophia leave, but I expect to see her land a network job.

    Okay, going thru pages of post and typing this in a notepad as I go along, because I'm forgetful. lol

    Cherokee Ballard is still with News 4 and I see her quite often.

    Jessica Brown, I think she should've stayed with News 4.

    Brad Edwards of News 4's In Your Corner is dead. After his death, a team of 4 reporters continued his legency, but I've noticed that Scott Hines has been mainly the one, so he is the next Brad Edwards.

    There was one black lady, forgot her name, she anchored at nights, but died in a crash after work. - News 4

    There was one new weather guy for News 4 (forgot his name) but I heard rumors that he was ran off due to people complaining of his homosexuality and fear of connection to weather.

    There was two young reporters and I think they anchored the 5pm newscast (male and female). They both left at same time. - News 4

    News 4's Dan Threlkeld weather guy moved to a station in Tulsa.

    I got no clue what happened to Reshonda Tate. - News 4

    I got no clue what happened to Theresa Green. - News 4

    David Payne at News 4 is still around, freaking out over each tornadoes.

    If I'm correct, Theresa Green did medical reports. I wish she would return.

    Sarah Libby, yeah she joined News 5 recently. I once saw her on LIVE video online overnight while I was tracking the storms. Somehow the video switched to a camera that pointed to the computers desk and this one guy was paranoid, kept staring at the camera, because he wanted it off and back on toward a radar view. I saw Sarah in the background, relaxing, eating a snack. She even confirmed it on their weather blog when I posted about the guy's paranoia behavior.

    Someone had said that Linda was soon to retire and that Mike would too, but I haven't seen that happening. - News 4

    The black lady was Lee Evans, I believe she was killed when her car was broad-sided by another.

    Threlkeld is chief meteorologist at KJRH, Tulsa channel 2.

    Scratch that one. Cherokee left the biz....

    KOCO: Callahan, Slinger, Cook, Suiter, Lohman, Reza gone in the last 4 months.

    Rumored to go? Well, I won't say, but let's just say there won't be but a copuple left you were used to watching...sinking ship....

    Wow, you do better teasers than the newscasts during sweeps.

    You've got me intrigued; I'll be tuning into this board to catch all the latest, and of course, I'll be watching KOCO every day anyway.

    They really do have a lot of new faces, with Jiao and Darrielle and Erin. Even more astounding to me is KFOR. I visited their website to see if Joleen Chaney was listed yet (she isn't) and I really don't know any of the people besides the old "war-horses" that probably should have retired a long time ago.

    FOX25 lost Scott Padgett to Miami, and Sana Syed got a job in Dallas on FOX, so it looks like they're a couple cylinders short of a V-8 too.

    All the while Gary England just goes on, and on, and on, and on..... much to the chagrin I'm sure, of all the people under him who would like to have a crack at the title "Chief Meteorologist".

    Gary will be doing the weather casts hooked up to life support if KWTV has anything to say about it, I think.

    FOX I don't think has its identity just yet. I would expect a couple more movements.

    Oh really???? See, I watch these guys at 9, since I like to be asleep by 10.....Is it rumored that she is moving to Miami, to be with Scott? I'm 95% sure those two were an item....could be wrong, though....just my perception.....

    I love this board. Who needs a newspaper when you can get the good stuff early here!?

    If they lose Jaime, and they already lost Sana Syed, that probably leaves Britten Follett for the anchor chair. I hope they use her, because she's a superb anchor, and how wonderfully ironic that she was just a reporter on KWTV a few years back with no chance at all of getting an anchor chair. Now look at her.

    Of course, FOX has gone blonde with its last three anchors, but then again, maybe that's why Britten's hair is getting lighter lately.

    Anyway, thanks ATutt, for throwing a wonderful hand-grenade into the room. It keeps this forum interesting. ;-)

    Uh....management is and always was the problem. If you were management, would you fire yourself? Think not...

    Only hope now is for Corporate to step in and can the GM. Unfortunately it's too little to late to right the ship.

    I'm TOTALLY applying for an anchor position.

    But you people are getting PORK CHOP SANDWICHES and BODY MASSAGE interjected at random times during the telecast.

    That'll right that ship

    I'm at somewhat of a loss. This is the #1 ABC affiliate in the country, and the #1 rated newscast at 5 and 6pm (unless it changed recently) so why is everything so bad?

    There should dancing in the streets at KOCO. They should be gunning for KWTV at 10 to try and knock them off. Are people just coming in, getting some great experience and credentials, then using it as a stepping stone to move on?

    What ever happened to Brooke Osborne? And the other blonde, either before her or after her, that wore way too much blush? Surely Speno is not that hard to get along with!!

    Brooke Osburn works for Integris Health. I think the other woman you refer to is Jessica Carter. I don't know what happened to her.

    That name sounds familiar. I think he used to work at a station in Dallas a few years back.
