After not even 2 years behind the Anchor desk Selena "Sunshine" Wiles is leaving Channel 24 to return home to West Virginia.

Is this just a case of being homesick? or are working conditions behind the scenes at Channel 24 deteriorating?

Selena seemed to be mailing it in the past few weeks. Now we know why.

It's sad to see the revolving door of talent continues under Lou Baxter's watch.

Maybe if Lou focused more on retaining talent and less on using his job to help his wife's dancing business then perhaps WJET would improve or at least retain talent.

I hear it's homesickness, and allegedly she wasn't a fan of living in Erie. In any case, she seemed to be taking more days off and I'm not surprised she left. Typically they run on two year contracts so I'm sure she didn't see fit to continue on to September.

JET also has two new reporters, Alese Underwood and Ken Brown. Ken is almost too good for this market since he's so polished for someone fresh out of college. Alese on the other hand, can use some work but there's potential.

Anyone notice Chris Cerenelli slipping out under the radar in June?

He's in Dayton, Ohio now.

WJET appears to have employee retention issues. Lou Baxter should focus more on the newsroom and less on his Wife's dancing business.

Nope. Switched to WSEE a year ago and much better.

I guess that means that WSEE now has one viewer.
You must enjoy hearing the stories from the previous days Times News read aloud.

WICU should just dump their local evening news so the remaining talent on other channels can have a larger market share and get a more competitive wage. Losing Jaqueline Policastro and Amelia Segal still stings.

Did you ever notice that he always looked like his nose was pushed up against glass? Perhaps it was just bad lighting.
