I think they need to get Channel 11's George Jackson to investigate. He'll get to the bottom of the story!

I hope WCYB checks these forums.

I would like to let them know, as the "young, hip" demographic they seem to be angling to attract, I do not get my news from your broadcast. You're making a big mistake if this is some kind of image shift.

People at Channel 5 tell me to expect more changes. No ones job is safe beyond their current contract. Even Dave Dierks and Ann Carter are sweating it. Johnny Wood is safe because he continues to draw huge numbers in the morning and just signed a new long-term contract. Viewers love Johnny!
Management is upset over the loss of viewers to Channel 11 - especially in Bristol - and has called in outside consultants to help them 'fix the problem'. They want a younger, more 'hip', image.
Dave's nervous cuz Donny Cox came in and kicked everyone's ass. He's a cool dude.

It does seeem as if Donnie Cox is takeing over. The chick that had the baby is no longer there. No other weather guy reports main stream news like Donnie does. I like him.

She's not listed on the web site anymore so I'd say she got a job somewhere else.
