First they moved the only qualified meterologist to WEEKEND duty and make freakboy Kris Kuyper the chief meterologist and now they lose Vanore for good. Nice going KHSL/KNVN! ANYONE would be better than Kris Kuyper. I just do not like that guy.

The new weatherman Kris seems like a very nice man. And he's usually right about the forecast. And we don't have to hear about the pig anymore.

Anthony Watts is personally not a nice person. If you meet him when he dosent have to be a Nice weather man he's a real D*** Head! Also he isnt a certified meteorologists!! And he did a horrible job as a member of the board of education.

According to Dave Vanore:

"This was the one location I had hoped for with everything it offers for our family. Although it was difficult leaving my pot-bellied pig Winnie behind in California. At 140 lbs. the ol' girl just can't travel anymore... I will miss her. Perhaps I'll adopt another."

Dave Vanore has been a good friend of mine since we served together in the weather office of the USS Ranger in the Navy, during the mid '80s. He even visited with me at my home in Mississippi. He stuck with weather, while I became a novelist. Go figure.

This guy does the weather like Frankenstein's monster.
I keep expecting him to say, "Uhhhh rain bad!"

If KHSL/KNVN had any sense at all, they'd bring back Mr. V. Dave is smart unlike the buffoons they have now.

Kris Kuyper says pretty much the same stuff every day no matter if the weather changes or not. He has a speech problem with the "S's" and "R's" and is difficult to understand. He loves the camera, but the camera doesn't love him. He's awkward and doesn't come across as having any imagination or intelligence. If you look at a picture of him (yuk) he looks like a moderate functioning challenged person. His eyes show a clear vacancy. Have you looked at his mouth? He must have done something about the extra saliva that he used to have, or they stopped doing close-ups on his rank mug. We used to call him "slurpy". Now we call him Mr. Slurp. Reconstructive surgery is about the only chance he has of appearing half way normal or attractive. If you put a bag over his head, he'd be better off and so would we. His only redeeming quality is his physique. And this guy is breeding! His voice modulation is really difficult to listen to. It's like half the time he doesn't want to be heard. Some people are made for TV. Kris Kuyper is not. No brains and no looks. It's simple. No camera for you! He sure likes to pose like he is in love with the camera.

Rob Blair--it's like he's talking valley-girl to little old folks all the time. What happened to him lately? He swelled up. That was scary. Sorry Rob. You can't blame that on allergies. Poor guy. He tries to be witty but falls flat on his face most of the time. When someone says "Rob Blair", I think "light in the loafers".

Anthony Watts reminds me of Dave Vanore's pig--and he's creepy.

BRING BACK MR. V! He's no super model, but he's a huge step above the current dorks. He added some much needed class to the joint. The pig thing was probably an attempt to get kids interested in the news. That's smart on his part.

Anybody worth their salt on this station goes to Florida. Lets send Rob Blair there and bring back the good ones. I rarely watch KHSL news anynore. They obviously care little about their viewers as they only hire minimum wage personalities to do the broadcasts

This is to "The Watcher"....Where do you get off being so judgmental regarding Kris Kuyper and Rob Blair. I think they do a real fine job at what they do and they didn't get we're they are by being illiterate. I think that makes you extremely ignorant to judge people by there looks. What do you look like? How would you like to be judged! No need to be nasty!

Kris Kuyper is also rude and unfriendly.
