She does weather and works as a waitress?? What the hell do they pay doing TV?
I would be surprised if she is making $25k per year. Contrary to popular belief, most people working in TV news make very little.

Janet and Dana do not seem to have ANY chemistry together. Janet just seems to be reading her prompter. I am sure she will develop very well, it is her first job out of school I think.
They obviously don't have much in common just from their looks. Dana is huge and likes to eat, Janet is tiny and probably doesn't eat much. Dana always looks hungry and looks like she could just lean over and swallow poor little Janet in one bite!

I think Janet is absolutely lovely, one of the prettiest women ever on local TV. If I thought I stood the slightest chance, I'd be asking her out.

My god that is sooo funny! I really can't believe that WTWO still keep Dana because she is completely obese and sends a very "hick" and white trash type of vibe from the station because of it. I think it makes the appearance that it's all the better the station can do is get her on TV instead of a more classy looking person. I feel for poor Dana because I'm sure that she hates being fat but I would think that WTWO would be more business like and move on with someone else...

While you're not even close to being accurate (you're high), the main anchors obviously make more than the others.

Funny thing is it's the advertising sales people that make the most. I wouldn't think it uncommon for them to be making $50k-$80k per year around here. When I worked in LA (left 8 years ago) the ad reps for some of the stations there were making $250k a year and they physically worked about 10-15 hours per week doing it. Of course it was all commission so if they didn't make any sales, they didn't make any money.

You say that about Dana when you have Kevin who can't even read the weather. The last couple nights he about died on air and Mark allen had to read his weather for him! LOL the Christmas trees on his broken shoulder after he fell down stairs during a stupid haunted house...what a joke! Find someone to really pick on! Dana if you read this we love you! Keep up the good work...find someone who really needs to be replaced!(KEVIN!)

Myself, I usually watch the Weather Channel because I get tired of everyone's "popup" storm senario to explain their lack of ability to give accurate weather forecasts. I want to hear if it IS or ISN'T going to rain and not maybe or maybe not, WTF is that?! As far as the local weather goes I think I'd rely more on WTHI then I would WTWO. As far as the image of the forecasters go I think Kevin is defintely a clown but knows what he's talking about with the weather and with Dana it's not about her quality but her look. How many people are sooo big that they have to wear jackets on hot days? Anyone remember when WTHI had a large news caster named Marla Keller? They got rid of her big butt because you have to maintain a certain image as a business, sorry Dana :(

Marla was tiny compared to the colossal size of that Dana because she looks like a linebacker no matter what she wears. I would hate to block her way into the Golden Corral, I would get knocked cold!

I like attractive girls as opposed to that fat girls or the dorky men. I can live with a few flubs from Pamela Gardener or Janet Van De Winkle because they are very easy on the eyes. Easy on the eyes hell, THEY ARE HOT!!! WTWO & WTHI put your money where the viewers are! Out with the sumo wrestler chicks and in with the hot ones!

Ok, I'M stupid here? All I said was that I prefer to get my information from The Weather Channel over the local affiliates WTWO or WTHI because the information is much more accurate and I really don't like seeing big Dana on WTWO looking like she could clean out a food pantry on WTWO. Then you get on here ranting about a NBC and Al Roker?! REALLY??! I think you should lookup the definition of the word stupid before you start throwing it around, you smart person you :) By the way, in caseyou didn't notice Dana is veeeery fat!

Your the one that said you don't watch because Dana is fat but then you watch the weather channel and Al Roker is one of the largest network Meteorologist. Which I don't care...I just want my weather. The weather channel more accurate??? PROVE IT!!!! I want the proof! You said that WTWO and WTHI only say popcorn storms?? Look what the weather says for tomorrow: A few isolated thunderstorms....samething as popcorn storms! Get a life! I looked at the radar and that's what we had...storms that just pop up from heat. They just pop up without much warning from the heat! I just looked up and the national weather service uses the term: National Weather Service Glossary”: Popcorn Convection. Slang for showers and thunderstorms that form on a scattered basis with little or no apparent organization, usually during the afternoon in response to diurnal heating. Individual thunderstorms typically are of the type sometimes referred to as air-mass thunderstorms: they are small, short-lived, very rarely severe, and they almost always dissipate near or just after sunset.

The funny part is I think both stations called for popcorn storms...guess what WE HAD POPCORN STORMS EVERY DAY THIS WEEK!!! How much more accurate do you want. So stop bitching about local stations and get a life!

Ok, ok, we obviously disagree (you visciously) on our preferred choice for the weather so please calm down before you blow an O-ring! One thing that we cannot deny is that Dana is grossly fat and unattractive to viewers. She could be the best newscaster in the land but she makes WTWO news look low rate because she refuses to lose even a little weight. I might watch WTWO if they would step up and make a few changes.
