WKTV announced on their facebook page that they have a bunch of new changes coming, some cannot be announced yet. I heard from a reliable source that the NBC affiliate contract with them is under negotiation for renewal. Talk is too that they will be adding a CBS affiliate again

Along with the afternoon anchor, the evening anchors, late night anchors, weekend anchors. they all need to go. You could replace them with High school kids and have a more professional newscast.
lets get some changes

I like Kristen and think she does an excellent job. She has a personality that comes thru when she reports the news - gives the news that personal touch which is very refreshing.

Don Shipman is another good announcer - his personality also comes thru.

The rest - they all read it right from the prompter and NONE of their personalities (if any)shine thru. They all act like robots.

I do like the "new" lady Katrina - she is very professional and very seldom comes across as a Robot reading the telepromter. She is married and the mother of children - not just another bimbo right out of college.

Heartland bought the #1 ranked station in the area. They get the most results from ads in the area. This is fact. They are building new sets and upgrading equipment to digital. The success of the station is in consistency and not changing to rookie announcers every week. Yes, staff does apply for larger markets and move on but many are carrier people and love the area.
If you think about it, they must smile about all the comments because the opinions mean people are watching !!
Another fact : Nielsen ratings show growth in almost all areas of WKTV.

So that means that the viewers have to suffer thru second rate no-talent announcers? Maybe its because we want to see news and not have to suffer thru Kristin's theatrics or Shipman's play time. Katrina is the best anchor they have...and its a shame she's confined to the weekend.
