I grew up in the Cape area, and never really thought much about whether or not ch.12 was good, but since moving to Columbia, I realized that channel 12 is so much better than most small market stations. We have a station here that is so bad! It seems like every day is the anchor's first day- no expression, so energy, just reading. They are constantly going off the air and messing up during the news. What's worse is that they are a training station for Mizzou's school of journalism which is supposed to be one of the best in the country. Be thankful for what you do have. I'm glad that Ryan Tate has joined one of the local stations here. At least someone knows what they're doing. If you don't like CJ, just change the channel. Does anyone have proof she's hard of hearing? I thought it was just her accent.

I thought it was just her accent too. She sounds like Mo from that Nickelodeon show Guts. Anyone remember Mo's accent?

Anyway if she is hard of hearing you shouldn't insist that she doesn't need to have the job she has. That's ridiculous. Everyone deserves a fair shot. Remember the first deaf Miss America Heather Whitestone? The governer of New York David Paterson is legally blind.

There's a lot of people that report the news on major stations that sound like bumbling idiots, or muppets on crack, etc.

The girl does her job well enough. I don't see any problem.

another example of common sense. A blind guy running the entire state of new york. Are all the documents, proposals, etc. all in brail. Hey, let's let him get a driver's license - would that make everybody happy and feel like he deserves a chance at it? C'mon people... COMMON SENSE. Geesh

Anonymous on the first page was right. She doesn't have a speech impediment as far as I know. I've met her and she IS from Sri Lanka. I'm not sure if she grew up speaking English or not, but I know that probably plays a part in her accent.

well the professionalism of the news team goes down because of this
Gilda Radner, back in the 70s, did this imitation of barbara walters, and it was hilarious, now we have a reporter on a news station that has a very large viewer base, and people aren't paying attention to the stories she is covering, but rather making fun of her impediment
i think KFVS should re think the stories they give her, and maybe get her some therapy or help to fix it

Not many know this, but Arnold Wyrick was a male stripper years ago, probably around his college years. It was not locally but in another state he lived in at the time.

I know this because a family member of his once told me the story.

I think CJ does a fine job w/the news. What if she were your daughter (especially if she has a hearing problem)? Stop being so mean to good people. R U perfect? Go fight terrorist or join law enforcement. Do something about the bad news, don't pick on a young woman reporting the news. Later

I work with someone who knows CJ. He says she is not at all hard of hearing.

CJ comes across as a nice person. At first, I was deeply annoyed with her speech, and thought the same thing, that she had a speech problem. Over the time that she has been at KFVS, she has improved greatly.

Overall, KFVS news has declined horribly. There is no news, just rehash of national news that you will hear in a few minutes on CBS, and fluff pieces. Now, they are inserting many of the stories that orginate in their sister station, KAIT-8 in Jonesboro.

I blame the news decline on Kathy Sweeney, and the news assignment editior, John Brocklan (or something like that) They wouldn't know news if it slapped them upside the head.

Sweeney has done packages, like the Century Mortgage scandal, which was a series, but just ended one night, without any clear ending... it just stopped. No real wrap, no clean exit to the story, it was like it ended and there was another piece coming the next night, but it never came.

Odd.

KFVS has declined in the ratings, and it isn't because of CJ Cassidy. WPSD, Channel 6 is now #1 in southeast Missouri news.
