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.

Jessica Hayes and Jane Santucci. Both were good reporters so no surprise really.

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.

Getting rid of David Wire would be the worst thing they could do.....

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.
