The company that owns WBTV is messing up royally across the board - radio and TV. I've watched channel 3 all my life but there are so many nasally, high-pitched, whiny girls on there now I just can't stand it. I turn the channel.

When the station wanted to go in a new direction they should have dismissed John Carter. Boring, and what a phony laugh!

I'm a 50's male who has watched wbtv for years. Miss the days of the down home feeling of the morning shows. I really dislike the ultra modern set they now have on the show. I keep waiting for the Jetsons to fly behind them during their broadcast!!!

So what has become of Barbara Pinson? Just sort of dissappeared and no longer on the news team roster.

I knew Barbara Pinson when she was with WIVB-TV, Buffalo, NY and was glad to see her on WBTV when I moved down here. I will miss her and I wish that the station would say why she left or why she was let go. They owe that much to their viewers.

I can't blame her for getting the heck out of Charlotte before all the foreclosure and unemployment hit over the next 18 months. You will have to give houses away to get rid of them.
Unemployment and foreclosures are everywhere, not just Charlotte.

yep now that she is gone, I have switched to channel 9 too. The new lady is ok but just dont have the humor or zing that Lenise Ligon had.The new lady is rather boring.

Glad to see it. They need more attractive newscasters.

Well PLEASE take her back. She SUCKS! She can not deliver the news without messing up, projecting her voice to all sorts of levels and inputting her personal opinion of a story through her projections of her voice. She is difficult to listen to and hard to watch.
YOU CAN HAVE HER BACK ANYTIME YOU WANT!

UGH!

I just saw Lenise Ligon on the news in Mobile, Al the week of 16 - 21 September and she looked very happy. I told some people that I knew her from Charlotte, NC and they are extremely happy to have her at Fox 10. I miss her as well and when I watched the news in Mobile, I watched Lenise and her smiling face. Very happy for her. Channel 9 is where I watch news now and have done so since she left here. WHAT A LOST HERE IN CHARLOTTE. WBTV.... WHAT IS THAT?

Was a morning watcher wrote:
I am glad the new news anchor for the am morning news got a new job..........but at the expense of Lenise Ligon????????? Please....She was great!! Actually better than great. No I do not know her and yes I am white...many will ask that...But she is what made the morning news. I even have a child who is 19 today who has watched her during getting ready for high school each morning. Regardless about going in a new direction....you made a poor call. She could have easily adapted to new direction. Lenise was a personalble person and made you feel as if she was talking to you personally. If your meaning of going in a new direction is what you are airing now..........sorry. I had to switch because your morning girl is not it!!! I miss John!! Is he next???? Sorry you made a bad decision......
What does being "white" have to do with whether or not you like a particular anchor? And no, no one was going to ask you. Why would they?
