KXII is biased and will not post most comments on their online news page. they only report what thye want you to hear. go look at the story online and see all the ass kissing going on over there. its sad but it's them or kten for news around here and neither is all that great.

don't believe any rumors that old bitter employees want to start...charlie is not leaving. maureen kane is staying...steve lanore recently signed another 3 year contract with the station...david reed will be there forever...both morning show anchors are under 2-3 year contracts...megan is back...amd the ratings are still nearly 3 times higher than kten...

Yeah, kxii just has a way better overall production. I don't even think kten has anyone doing sports anymore.

They have good old Lisanne and Alan Mitchell, who they must give more face time than any other meterologist gets in the country.

KXII is better than KTEN, that's for sure. But I can't stand that Charlie guy. He is terrible and his hick accent is hard to listen to.

My name is Thomas,

I'm not certain what type of response this will generate, but what events recently have caused KTEN to be perceived as a lesser station? I say recently, because there has been a stigma in the past of KTEN being inferior. We acknowledged that, and have made strides in recent years to combat this. This includes recent technical upgrades as well as maintaining steady on-air talent. Any feedback good or bad is requested. While we may not remedy issues immediately, we do want to make sure we have an open line of communication available to our viewers. Commenting on Topix may yield a slower response, but contacting us at [email protected] will feed directly to the one's who can listen and make decisions. We want the public to know they can contact us with any concerns or comments. And most importantly, we want to be better if the public feels we're not meeting their expectations. What are your expectations?

I don't watch kten near as much as kxii because of kten's slant more towards news out of Oklahoma, which really is not "local" news to me here. I understand you have an Ardmore newsroom and that you are focusing on Oklahoma, but kxii does a better job of covering more local news.

And grabbing up a newscaster that was let go by your main competitor just looks like a desperate move. Some of the young on air talent at kten haven't been able to read their stories very well, and there have been some awful young weather "talent" on there the past few years.

I hope Charlie is still in. He is a great man and he is good at his job! If you don't want to hear a Texas accent... DONT LIVE IN TEXAS. as for KXII vs. KTEN... No competition.

Charlie is no longer at kxii. On his facebook page, he didn't say where he was going. I've heard that kxii let him go. I'm sure it was about money. Seems like they are really going cheap on their employees, and it shows a lot too!

I am furious that Charlie Haldeman is no longer at KXII. He was awesome at his job, and worked his butt of for that station. So much for local news. Obviously KXII doesn't know a good thing when it has one and is willing to shoot themselves in the foot with this situation. I'm sure Charlie will land on his feet where ever he ends up, but I'm not so sure KXII is going to be able to recover from this amazingly ignorant staffing decision.

For those of you have said Charlie is not leaving, check kxii.com . They have BOTH of his jobs as vacant. Also, those of you that were critical of Charlie, feel free to apply. I'm sure your job as roofer will qualify you to do the job that Charlie has done. He's done a fine job in Sherman, much better than Lisanne, prima donna ways. Putting her on the street was one of the smartest moves kxii has made in recent years. Letting Charlie go, not such a smart move. Shame on kxii for this move, and even more shame on them for no explanation to those that looked forward to Charlie being on the air every evening. Charlie, if you have a better job in a better environment, CONGRATULATIONS and best wishes! You will be missed!

Not real sorry that behind the doors KXII fired Charlie. What goes around comes around. He let LisAnne Anderson go and now he is gone himself. Too much turmoil at the station was the reason. Haha - my last thought watch channel ten instead of twelve.

Charlie Haldeman didn't let Lizzy go, he was not in position to do that, those decisions comes from the top.

I still watch kxii over kten. Kxii still has an overall better production, does a better job of covering non-Ardmore druggy stories unlike kten, and has a clearer picture.
