Does anyone have any insight as to what's happening on Smith Hill? There seems to have been back-to-back-to-back departures, three high profile departures in two months.

There's chatter I saw just today about the weekend girl Nicole leaving, who's only been on for a year or so. She seems to know her stuff and they clearly gave her a lot of airtime quickly.

Dave Dellecese was the biggest name to leave. He went to SUNY IT for some communications role. I remember him from his OD reporting days. He came a long way. I always thought Worden's job should have gone to him. Maybe not enough of pay compared to a state job?

And the weekend reporter and Twitter guy Andrew Donovan moved out to Syracuse. Someone I know said he loved it there and it was a shock that he left. He had been there for years, maybe even when he was still in school. You could see him grow talent wise each year.

Copeland's been out a while for her pregnancy. Let's hope she comes back after.

I know management changed hands a few years back to some network guy. I didn't think changes would pop up so long after. There seems to always be a stream of non-local, female, attractive reporters who are great to look at, but not so great to listen too. Maybe it's about cheap buys.

Can anyone provide insight on the departures or status there?

They should give the new girl Anne as much airtime as possible. A breath of fresh air she is.

Ana is another example of an attractive girl who has a lot of work to do and will only be here a year.

No, Lets HOPE Copeland NEVER comes back. we don't need her giddy and OVER DRAMATIC reporting. A high school would be more professional then her

WKTV and WUTR definitely have the best looking reporters ever in this area right now. Norlian and Anna at KTV and Rose, Elsa, and Rachel at UTR. Sounds shallow to talk about their looks but hey, I'm a guy. They are beautiful women and it's a HUGE improvement from what we're used to around here.

Both stations could up their games by doing more sports on the 6 o'clock news. There are weekdays when WKTV has no sports segment at all. Bring back Powles.

I guess you have not seen him on his news segment, he thinks he is still doing the sports. It seems like it is a power struggle between him and the sports guy. I wish Pawles was back doing the sports then we wouldn't have to listen to hi trying to read.

I agree 100%. What a relief not having to listen to her Shakespearean reporting. Hope Pawles stays where he is also. He was terrible at sports. He's a biffune!

It is strange that the Time Warner News YNN this morning had the names of the two that fell off the roof in Schylar and that WKTV this morning was still waiting for the names to be released. After all it is local and the gentleman was killed and the woman injured. Just saying Very poor reporting. But if someones shoelace came untied in the Boilermaker it would have been headline news.

I don't think its a law suit they're worried about. It's getting someone to actually move there and be her replacement! Lol
