Why was Kevin demoted? Did they every say???
Kevin wasn't demoted, he gave the chief position to Dave. Dave deserves for as long as he has been there.

As for Dave Kirk, didn't he pass away?

Keven has given alot to Terre Haute and it is unfortunate if he is suffering from an illness. The best way to address this, to shut the haters up, is for the station and Kevin to say what is going on about his health. Instead of innuendo and gossip. If he does have Alzheimer, maybe he can help others understand the affects it has on people's lives.

He was probably drunk, if you live on the east end of town and have for a few years, Im sure you have seen Kevin plastered at some point. Especially if you live in the grove...
He's an irritating little troll that goes out of his way to sound educated, and he's also full of himself and will hit on anything with a pulse. Maybe his liver is finally giving out due to the drinking and wthi doesnt want to see hime turn yellow while Terre Haute watches.
Seeing Kevin gone from tv is almost as satisfying as watching Julie Henricks, he cant go soon enough.
I think Julie Hendricks was a good weather forecaster. I don't know what happened to her, but she was concise and her deliver was clear, not like this Pamela. It is like hearing nails on a chalk board listening to that woman.

It's time for Kevin Orpurt to leave the airwaves. We need new and fresh weather forecasters on the air now. His time is over. Kevin, please leave and let someone else have a job in the weather storm team!!!

Kevin still has some fans. For what he is on now, he is okay.

Julie left WTHI to go to WTWO. Then she got canned there.

From what I've seen on Ch 10 news the youngsters aren't doing such a hot job either. Pam Gardner has nothing to offer the weather team. Her genre could be MTV maybe or TMZ.

It doesn't matter if her delivery of the weather is very good, it is the way she looks. They know she is good looking and people want to look at the "pretty" people, not the one's that are articulate.

What about the time Kevin got into fight with Jenkins and was doing the weather with a black eye?
I worked with him at the time of that rumor and he never had a black eye. He is a great guy and may be a little different but they are always put under the microscope for the dumbest reasons. They are people with feelings and a family. Do unto others as u would have done to u

It is sad to use a person when they are doing a good job then dump them as soon as they have problems. I say they should keep Kevin and use him behind the scenes. Just because you have health issues doesn't mean you deserve to be jobless! I do know it happens I got cancer and TWO weeks after being diagnosed the HR rep called to tell me if I wasn't back to work in 12 weeks I would be replaced. Cancer takes more than 12 weeks, everybody knows that! I was let go and left without an income without so much as a thank you for your service with us or even so much as a we are sorry or even a good luck wish! Just proves your nothing to a company, all they care about is the almighty dollar! I feel for Kevin! I know whatever his battle is it can not be easy! Keep the faith Kevin, hang in there and hold your head high as you face your battle!

I agree, when Kevin quits the show I will. I don't watch it near as much as I use too and I don't listen to David Wire.

Hey, I like Dave Wire, he does as well as any meteorologist and has a lively personality. Kevin gives us all those interesting weather tidbits to expand our horizons a little. Both of them take weather assessment seriously but bring a little fun along with it.
Poor Pam has not yet acquired those skills and she struggles painfully while on camera. She has one of those voices that soon makes you tune out.

And from a market size and financial remuneration standpoint is about to become the most successful of all three when she moves to WISH-TV. Funny how that works out sometimes.
