Can't they find more suitable women to do this job?Jill should wear longer jackets to hid those thunder thighs, never professional looking. Emma is truly a disaster. Get some color in your face girl! She needs to fix those turned down lips. Both of them have the worst voices I've ever heard.SCRATCHY!!! Get rid of these bimbos and hire talented professionals with some class.

Unfortunately that is what you get when you have a class C TV station. You might think this is a large city, but not for media. It's a one horse town, and therefor you get what you get. What in this market would pay more than they are for advertising ect. to pay for better ?

The stations staffing is a result of all that and more. Obviously most probably with their first on air jobs or retired from somewhere. Their cost crunching results in playing of taped news from previous casts, and sometimes even the same show. I've seen sports shows that were on the night before. I inquired once as to why they didn't cover a large news story, and was told the news people cme in at 8 AM.

Try the channel 5 news from Syracuse. Just be ready for the Weatherguy that thinks he is better than the world. Even the Utica people respect their appearance. And don't try to use some voice from God knows where.

With all due respect, I have to add to the above. I remember when watching WKTV was not a chore.

Jill is cute and I'm sure a nice girl but her robotic motions and high pitched voice are a distraction.

Emma also has a high pitched voice and I find myself turning away. She could be a pretty girl but needs a make over. Too pasty looking, eyes exaggerated and mouth as well.

Shipman is also probably a nice guy but he has to lose that "read the news to me" and report professionally.

The latest addition, Mike Levin, is impossible to watch and worse to listen to. He looks like a stuffed sausage in his jackets. He elevates his voice, goes up and down, tries to sound like the network announcers but it is annoying. I try to avoid his faces, especially the one at the end of the broadcast where he twists up his whole face and nods his head.

I think Jolene is professional as are the male weathermen. I also like the newsman that just got married.

Bill Worden needs to retire his goofy shirt, tie combinations. Simple black or dark blue suit, white shirt and nice ties would do it.

Hope the criticism is constructive but I doubt if any of it is taken seriously.

Utica, oh Utica, what has happened to this beautiful city?

We have produced the likes of Dick Clark, Rudy's wife, Bill Cerri who started in radio while in Proctor, ended up in DC, known all over the world and his brother Dick did well too.

They had beautiful voices, pronounced names correctly and we could be proud of their contributions.

Seems everytime we get someone decent, they leave.

You get what you pay for. Maybe WKTV should dig a little deeper in their pockets and stop treating us like goofs who don't know any better.
Same problem

They have the same problem as WKTV. They pay for kids.
I remember when they had investigative reporters and went out to kill people Donna didn't like.

You never see a city payroll, school district payroll with consultants, expose on anything.

OD needs a change in management. That's why no one buys the paper.

Please, wktv if you read this, and I doubt you do, change the morning show. These two are painful to watch and I often change to channel 10 or channel 3 just because these two are so unprofessional.

I watch the local news to get local news. It is evident that Shipman enjoys the "411" celebrity gossip segment far more than anything else. Perhaps he would be better suited for a show like Access Hollywood...or not be on television.

Meghan is tolerable at best. Her and Shipman are not a good compliment to each other. From what it looks like, Koskovich does try to report and take it seriously, while Shipman is a giggly tenneager.

WKTV should first try to move Shipman to another slot, like 3:00 AM on a Friday night.

In my opinion, WKTV should fire "Emma". There is something about her face that I find gross, and she comes across so phoney in the way she reports.

No matter what makeup she uses, she is beyond any "make over". She chose the wrong career for herself and anyone watching WKTV is paying dearly in just watching her.

Two things. Jill is petite and does not have big thighs. Sadly there is no hope for Emma...she has the perfect face for radio.

Boston Ventures is killing the station. They are not going to pump any big money into such a dead market. I'm amazed they actually went HD! They are so desperate for cash that they are holding out on Time Warner in hopes TW will pay for the HD signal.

You should be so ASHAMED of yourself for posting this. Honey, take a look in the mirror and while you're at it check out your rear trailer.

I think you would be the perfect candidate for a job at the station, you could run the whole place and make sure everyone meets your high standards,,the sooner you apply the better.
