I have stopped watching Channel 4 in the mornings. I watched for Joe and Barbara.

Ok I've been watching Barbara for what seems like forever. First bad sportscasters (all of them) and now breaking up the Harrison/Krebs in the mornings, what the heck! Get a clue NBC4!!!!!!

Oh, Noo...! Barbara is not gone from the morning news? Barbara and Joe are a part of my morning life. For the past couple of weeks, I thought she was on a long vacation. Now I am reading that she is no longer on the morning news. Sorry, Joe I am going to Fox. Bring Barbara Back!

I was wondering where Barbara was!!! I'm disappointed in the way that NBC 4 has not given any information on her not anchoring the early morning show anymore. I will be watching another channel now!

Okay, I agree with some of your comments people. Barbara did miss reading some lines when she was pregnant a long time ago. Black or white, do you know she's very rich and doesn't need of any of you? Why be so CRUEL with a woman who has dedicated her life to the Washington community? I have met Barbara personally more than once during the Council of Government's Galas and she is a lady, compassionate, a true gem of a human being. I guess if you had to wake up at 2:30 a.m. and be at work before 5:00 a.m. you would be as tired as she did at times be. People, have compassion, you nasty all. Do you even imagine what it takes to do what she does? NBC has lost its tact and people's orientation and they'll pay the price. She should have been given a chance to make the announcement. None of you would have lasted this long, but everyone is a critic.

I am SO glad I don't have to listen to Barbara stumble and babble anymore. Eun has the personality and presence of an inanimate object and Joe is just beat. They need to replace both of them

I have always watched Joe and Barbara in the morning while getting ready for work. It is not the same with her gone. They made a good team, she's needs to come back.Barbara is more down to earth,Yang is all business.

I am saddened to learn that Barbara Harrison will no longer be on the morning news. I found her and Joe Krebs easy to connect with and listened to NBC4 to see them. Like others, I wonder why the silence about this change? My loyalty was to this duo and not the station and will be searching for another human, approachable personality.

I also watched because I enjoyed Joe and Barbaas. Sorry Joe, I enjoy you as well as I do Barbara but no connection with you and Eun Yang. Ms. Yang is wonderful also but I miss the team of Barbara and Joe. FOr the idiots who commented negativly on Barbara, watch another station. Just remember that out of 100 people, 50 will like you, 25 will hate you and the remaining 25 just don't care! Try listening to other newscasters out there that will say yea instead of yes. For those of us 50 and up, we like the team of Barbara and Joe. SOMEONE messed up! BRING her back and all will be forgiven.

I miss Barbara. I felt comfortable listening to her broadcast. She connected with me. Shame on the nasty remarks from some of the previous entries. She was very professional yet genuine. I don't enjoy Eun or Kimberly as much, but do wish them luck in their careers.

I am very sorry to see Barbara Harrison off the morning news with Joe Krebs. I also love her Wednesday Child spots. Instead of taking off an accomplished journalist like Barbara why don't you get rid of Veronica Johnson? I keep waiting for her to get better, but her odd speech pattern, looong pauses while she gropes for the right word, and attempts at humor are extremely irritating. So much so that when she does the weather I have begun changing the channel. Bring Barbara back!

I am glad Barb is gone. I like Eun. Barb slurred her speech, was hard to watch. I will now watch Eun/Joe instead of Guvir/Steve(ch 5). I like Ali Starling but wont watch til Doug McK is gone. He is rude and disrespectful.

I miss Barbara too. Sha many not have been the most eloquent news anchor, but I'm accustomed seeing and hearing to Barbara and Joe every morning. I miss her!

OMG...I've been watching News 4 since I moved here in 2002, and always thought that Barbara was black, which now I know she is after reading that she grew up in Prairie View, TX! I will have to say that she consistently made errors every morning, but I accepted it because she seems to be so nice!! However, I have to agree I do miss her. I also have to say that Eun's voice is super annoying and she definitely tries to hard! Bring Barbara back!!!

Also the remark about Prairie View, TX was not meant to be racist. I'm a child of mixed races!
