With a couple of them recently leaving then who is next?

I'm guessing Amanda Jarrett, with Pamela Gardner to leave this time next year.

Shame.

Terre Haute is a entry level market. Good reporters will never stay here unless they are from here and okay with staying here. I don't know what they make, but can venture to say that drive an hour northeast and they will get double it.

Hayes went to sister-station WISH-TV in Indy and Santucci left the news business. And yes, neither departures were much of a surprise to me either. It's tough to live that lifestyle making little more than $20k a year.

Their sales department, I know, make a lot more than 20K. Sounds like they need to lower the sales commissions and give it to the reporters and anchors with whom are truly the backbone of the business. I think Patrece Dayton is extremely professional and so is Mark. I wonder about the mental stability of the goofy weatherman: Kevin Orpurt. Wthi should do anything within their power to get Jessi from WTWO and then they would have a great recipe for double the ratings.

They can't just jump to other stations in the same market. It's in their contract.

But I agree.

Good for her. Now she can probably afford to pay rent AND put food on the table.

I agree, If they can get rid of Kevin Orpurt and get Jesse Walker at Channel 10, that station would no doubt be a TRUE "leading the way" station. The ratings would probably double with Jesse Walker over at channel 10, he is a TRUE professional unlike Kevin Orpurt. Channel 2 is very lucky to have Walker over there!

Oh, I kind of like watching Kevin O., it's sort of like when you drive by a car wreck on the freeway... you know it's gonna be bad, but you just gotta look!

I agree!! I like watching to see if he will explode. I am sure he will loose it one day on the air.

No. News 10 should swap David Wire for Janet Van De Winkle. Then they really would have a great weather team.

I like to listen to what the weather is going to be like. Not have it blasted in my face with extra drama that doesn't really exist.

I agree, get rid of Kevin Orpurt before he has a melt down. It's time for Orpurt to go! Jesse Walker and David Wire, now that would be a 5 star weather team!!

If some how News 10 could get Jesse Walker, it would be the end of channel 2. He's the only reason I watch their news.
