There were 2 new ones on there last night. The older one in red jacket was yes, underwhelming. The younger girl looked like she just walked in from a ball game, wasn't even dressed up. I thought she was terribly underdressed, especially for being new. Not a good first impression.

At least she can read...seems way to professional for this area....won't stay long.

I think I heard she came from Akron or Toledo. Probably larger markets. So why step down unless her ratings were not good. If ratings tank here she won't be here long for sure.

But I should also say of the new one in the red jacket last night, if underwhelming is the worst we can say of her first day, that's not so bad. She did a decent job. Could have smiled, but she made a decent showing. That other girl though really needs to dress better. Shows a way too casual attitude toward the job. Anyone know who she is? Might not have been her first appearance but I didn't recognize her. 20something, long dark hair?

I find her competent and no-nonsense. I prefer that in an anchor. Never was a big Horbelt fan, although many seemed to like her. Either she had uncontrollable giggles over a humorous story, or on the verge of tears with a serious one. Looked like she was acting in a high school play most of the time. Glad she's gone.

They have different styles. Horbelt was an outstanding anchor. You just didn't like her style. She could get tickled at times, but as for her being on the verge of tears, she was genuine. That is what endeared her to people, she really cares. Laura Emerson is different. She has a great voice, and I think quite professional. She could smile a bit more, and be more warm toward the audience. But it's early yet. Give her a bit of time. It takes awhile to get comfortable at the desk. I think she will be a good addition to WPSD.

I think anyone who could/would speak negatively about Jennifer Horbelt is obviously out of their mind. She was so genuine & sincere. She was an awesome reporter / anchor and obviously Local 6 didn't search long enough for the right replacement. The newscast needs energy perhaps I'm thinking young vibrant energy & I do not see that in Ms Emerson....yes it's a bit too early to judge her just yet, however she doesn't impress me much & I do not believe the viewers in the area wanted that type of anchor. Nor do I think Johnette is a good fit for the morning show. She does a great job on mid-day, however she does not bring the energy to the anchors desk a morning show anchor is normally bringing like Beth Bradley did. Why not let Marissa do the entire morning show w/ Mike instead giving her 30 minutes at the anchors desk?!?!?

Also, it's a shame as much time as Lauren Adams has given Local 6 and she wasn't considered for the evening anchors job! She would of been much better than their choice!

I liked both Jennifers. I strongly prefer to watch a smiling, genuine person report on the news than to watch someone who is almost emotionless and robotic. For those who live alone and/or have limited social interaction because of our health, the smiles and playfulness of reporters is a major mood booster.
yep

Lauren is NOT a cow. Just because she is not rail thin does not make it okay for grown ups or anyone else to make fun of her. People gain weight, especially with age and often for medical-related reasons too. I've been through it and am only now at a healthy weight after lots of hard work and health problems. That's not to say I won't gain weight again. And the parents who ridiculed me my entire childhood for every snack before I was ever even overweight, well now THEY are both morbidly obese, so watch what you say about someone else or it might be YOU shopping the plus section next!

Emerson has done a much better job tonight. Maybe it was just the jitters. I did notice however that when she is reading the monitor they have it too high up and she has to look up to read it.

just not very interesting or attractive. I think I will start watching KFVS. They have 6 beat all over the place with HD. Great set and graphics. Weather. Better than most big cities. I saw TV in 3 major cities on the last week. I think they look better than any I saw. Shame 6 has fallen so far behind. And now worse. Geez.
