Boycott this new anchor and WAVY-10. He took a job away from a dedicated employee who was unfairly treated by Lintv management.
He didn't "take a job away from a dedicated employee..." He applied for a job and was selected from several applicants and got the job.

By the way, the job BELONGS to management and not to the person, who fills it.

That's true up to a point. Viewers have the ultimate power. If they don't watch then management has failed. In WAVY's case management has failed by mistreating numerous employees. WAVY-10 and Fox-43 has been taking lessons on how to screw their employees. We should not reward them by watching. WVEC-13 is a much better choice.

NO, he didn't take the job away from Les. Les has been gone 6 months or more. Please.....due to employee confidentuality, we will never know why he left unless he tells. If you don't like wavy, change the channel...
Les is not the only one. What about David Nelson, Kay Young, Adam Owen and the many others? Yet fatso whining Mary Kay and Andy Fox remain? Very strange.

What about David Nelson? What about Kay Young? Why was Stephanie Harris demoted to reporter? What about the rest of the MIA's? Lintv is screwed up. Treats their employees like dirt. Yet a lot of people still watch them which will never make them change.

Kerri Furey.

What a dish, if only she'd get rid of that ugly 'bob' hairdo that seems to be so popular, especially among the female Walmart employees.

When ever there's something about the Navy on Wavy Kerri starts beaming like some Ocean View bar hooker when the ships come into port.

And why is she so close to that right-wing radio shill Jimmy Ray Dunn ?
