She was there on day, and gone the next. No one makes any mention of her departure. This would indicate it wasn't on the "best of terms".

Asa is a TOP NOTCH anchor and was great in the morning. Channel 22 lost a lot when they lost her.

She will be doing a "Top Notch" job for someone else. It seems we just can't keep "the best" in Dayton.

So I'll see what's going on on Channel 7. I haven't been there in a long time.

As for the "family feel" of the morning news?

Not so much.

They did not renew her contract preferring to keep someone making less money.

I will miss her. She was fun and pretty and made the Channel 22 news worth watching.

Now I'll see what's on Channel 7.

Not exactly the "family" they would have you believe.

I can't stand the Channel 7 team. I'll stick with Channel 2 - although I do miss Libby. I really liked Asa as well. They made a big mistake letting her go.

I wouldn't make me so frustrated but they want to "sell" you the morning team as a "family".

We get to learn about their outside activities and they try their best to "hook" the viewers on being a part of that.

Then they do this.

Just like TV2 cut Carl Day when it was no longer to their advantage to discuss his health problems any more.

They cut him as well.

Screw them and turn to the Internet.

Someone suggested that the local CBS or NBC/CW hire Asa. Follow this link to their websites and let's make this happen quick before she leaves the Miami Valley!

Pete Scalia cannot compare to Asa George. He is rude and unprofessional. His attempt at humor is offensive. No wonder channel 5 gave him the axe and ended up with Valerie Abati. What is wrong with the Management? It seems they want to be the least watched in the dayton market! I am going back to Cbs and Nbc. They have dropped the ball this time. I have also pulled my advertising from two family business'. I hope they all hit the unemployment line at 22 and 45 (Mike Terwilliger excluded).

I am going to miss Asa. She has a way to brighten your day even when presenting not so positive news. I hate it when they promote someone and then one day they are gone with virtually no announcement. I only hope that she has a better job offer as she is one of the best news anchors in the area.

I liked Asa, but I got pretty tired of her giggling because the camera men were unprofessional enough to make her laugh at stupid times. Pete Scalia is like a spoiled high school senior who can't get enough attention, and his sense of humor is ridiculous. On channel 5 in Cincinnati, all I remember him saying was, "Amy...blah, blah, blah...Amy...blah, blah, blah..." He wouldn't shut up about his fiancee. I moved here from Cincinnati, thinking I'd escaped the fool. No such luck.

I agree that Asa was good. They need to can Pete and the crew. A totally unprofessional operation.

22 & 45 SUCK! Why do you fools watch the lowest rated news in town, anyhow?

Well I guess we'd all watch YOU if you were on TV.

Sadly for you, you are not. How is everything Tws-OASIS?

How is the water?

I don't watch 22 or 45 news. Asa gave the show personality. I must say that Mike's weather was pretty good.

But it just isn't much of a show without Asa.

I've switched channels for my morning news.

I will say that this clever move from 22/45 is nearly as clever as channel 2 leaving Time Warner for a moment. I guess they're back.

We just stream most of what we watch from the Internet now. Thank goodness for H D M I connections.

These Asa fans have too much daytime on their hands, including these Obama Mamas who slouch on the couch and do pretty good in their victimhood.
