If i was guessing I would say that you have internet through your cable tv?? who has an office in Kenosha. But thats just a guess.

I hope Dave isn't leaving. He's the best weather man on tv.

I hope David Wire is not leaving channel 10, but then again, if a better paying job in a bigger market is the reason, can't blame him. If this is true, Channel 10 would be losing their best weatherman that is for sure. Again, if this is true, I wish the best to David Wire and our loss will be another markets' gain. Good luck David Wire and the best of luck to you!

So is this true or what? Is he leaving for sure? Does that mean that Kevin Orpurt will be on the air more giving us useless information and telling us about the weather for three hours over regular programming or showing us a radar EVERY DAY when there has not been rain the last three weeks! WHY do we need to keep seeing the radar every day, show us something useful, we know there is no rain because it has been dry for the last 3 weeks! Give us a break, if Dave leaves, I am switching to the weather experts over at Channel 2!!

Who can blame Dave for leaving? Kevin is so bad that it probably drives Dave crazy. Anywhere he goes he will have someone much better to work with. Too bad Kevin didn't learn anything from Dave the past several years.

Please be true. I may actually be able to watch News 10 in the morning then. Wire has me reaching for the remote each time he comes on. Too much over the top drama and he talks to us like we are all stupid.

The TV10 website has a job posting for a morning and midday weather anchor, so I'm guessing the rumor is true. Unless of course posting the job is just a contract negotiation tactic.

Dave is about the only reason I watch local TV. It would be a shame if they let him get away. They need to retire Kevin and move Dave into the top spot.

Doubt that money or title would have much to do with anyone leaving, or staying---it's all about stepping up to a larger market. If Dave has managed to finally do that---good for him.

All the senior anchors around here are here because---well, this is where they wound up--I'm sure every single one of them viewed their original assignments here as "starter" jobs. A very few actually move up. Like minor league baseball players--most give up after a couple of years of miserably low pay and go out and get a real job. Some hang on to the dream and play in the minors as long as they can---that's what we've got here for our anchors.

You're partially correct. Another thing that happens, especially in the smaller markets, is the anchors and reporters actually settle in to the area and decide to make it their home and stay.

I don't know, 90 grand after 20+ years on the job doesn't seem like a great career move to me.

False, at least as far as Dave Wire is concerned. I know him very well. As far as the ad, he couldn't comment, so evidently someone is leaving. My guess would be Jessica Hayes, the other girl (Pamela), although cute, isn't very good at doing the weather.

I hope you are right ROCK. Dave puts Channel 10 weather "on the map", sorry about the pun. Anyway, I am glad to hear Dave is going to stay in the Wabash Valley. He does a great job and deserves to be the "weather chief" at that station. Kevin, please retire! Dave needs to be in that spot and he deserves it!
