Has anyone noticed that the evening weather forecaster is looking older and older every
day. What is going on with Sharie? She's not
her bubbly self anymore and it REALLY SHOWS.

Can anyone give us any feedback on this???

She looks like she's lost a lot of weight.

I remember when she was younger. She looked healthy, normal, then she got a bit fat, now she's lost weight and she looks haggard. Doesn't look good.

Just recently, I watched both Sharie Shima and Diane Ako on TV. They both looked terrible and I couldn't put my finger on it. I could be a combination of bad makeup, poor lighting and TV technology.

Did Sharie and Dave Vinton get divorced? I know that he is quite a bit younger than her, but hopefully all is well at home. I did notice that Diane looked a little "buss up" as well, but she had a child recently and many sleepless nights with baby may be taking a toll.

Yes, and personal problems. I pray she will come through it. Younger men can be a challenge. So can older ones. :)

Wow...amazingly enough...I said the very thing last night watching the news. She'll be Denby Fawcett in about two months at this rate.

All weather people are a waste of time...or "broadcast meteorologists" as their resumes would say.

Out of all I can recall, Dan Cook was the best one...to the point, clear, and no stupid banter.

And speaking of banter, Shawn Ching and Paula Akana are the worst. Their chit-chat at the end of newscasts is inane.

I used to think KITV had the best local coverage, but I've been slowly chaning my opinion of them and been watching more Joe Moore/Jai Cunningham or news these days.

If there's a divorce in the picture, then it makes sense for Sharie. I wish her well.

I figured it was the baby for Diane. She looked better last night. Motherhood and careers, tough for women.

Yes, all my friends and I were wondering the same thing. She must have health problems cuz sometimes I can't even look at her. She looks like a skeleton with it's skin still on.

I agree about Dan Cook. I remember him taking us through one of the hurricanes.

I think it is poor lighting and TV technology. They both look great in person, but on the news cast their skin looks bad.

i think you're right. High Definition won't do wonders, I think.

Why don't the other stations who went high definition have this issue? I only notice it on this station. Poor news casters.

I hope the station makes its adjustments before high def becomes the standard. As for weather reporters, my favorite like others posted above was/is Dan Cook. I like Guy Hagi because of his local flavor... a surfer boy type.
