The Femi-Nazi news director is still at it I see.

Remember Les Smith and David Nelson!

I doubt the newscast will improve, unless they start reporting all news and stop tooting their horns on how great(possibly bad) they cover the news. Although when someone is shot by a thug,the street interviews are entertaining, because they are some of the dumbest people in our society.

I have always wondered why they pick the dumbest people on the street to talk to.

Where is Les Smith, David Nelson, Jim Lawrence, Adam Owens, and others that have left Wavy 10 in the last year? I really would like to know why they left. My bet was on the new management. Is there a place where we can go for answers? Les Smith had been there 22 years and then resigned on a weekend. Something isn't right. If they don't value their long time people why should we value them?

I'm with you. I wonder what happened. I , too, am a faithful channel 10 news watcher. It's the only newscast I watch. Where did they all go?

Simple answers.
It's a lot cheaper to have 20-somethings on staff with no experience than to have 20+ year veterans on staff. News is not about news. It's about $$.
WAVY News 10 and all news is about one thing only.- Filling time between commercials. Content isn't important as long as someone buys the ad space.
That's the environment of a TV News operation.

This isn't about David Nelson!! Welcome aboard Ms. Esther Pierre, a fresh face is more than appreciated. I'd like to extend my heartfelt thanks to management at "10 On Your Side". Keep on keeping it fresh. With her background and education, can't help but be a win-win situation.

HATER! People do move on in their careers. Standing or sitting idle with no means of advancement is for those who lack ambition and life goals. When,why,and how is none of anyone's business as to why someone isn't on "10 On Your Side's" staff. Some of you are just to da** bored with your own life. Just make sure you are in good standing with your employer.

Ohhhh we have the WAVY TV (Lintv) employee back with a different name. You sure are eat up with it. How can you continue to defend the awful employment practices of Lintv? Many very good employess have been trashed by this company mainly because management refuses to get control over the head of the news department.

Les Smith, David Nelson, Kay Young, Adam Owen just to name a few.

Viewers need to boycott WAVY-10 and Fox-43. WVEC is a very good alternative station for local news.

I actually agree with Jack (I need a TUMS), boycott WAVY.

It is for a completely different reason though. What the he77 is up with showing some 70's flick (Ironside) instead of the NHL game?

Even if you don't like hockey (we'll create a different thread for that argument, a live sporting event is better than an obscure movie.

You must be kidding. This is a professional addition? Think not. Sorry but I wasn't impressed with her at her former station.
