Concerned at 10TV


#1 Dec 17, 2010
Does this mean that Chuck and Anietra will no longer anchor the No.1-rated morning newscast in Columbus? Or, do these changes simply mean that Jeff and Angela will simply anchor an earlier newscast each day, with Chuck and Anietra starting later? Also, since Tracy Townsend will now anchor that 10TV at Noon, that does not bode well for Anietra Hamper's future will 10TV. Has she announced that she is leaving or is her contract not being renewed? Strange developments at 10TV.
Relieved and Disappointed

I am disappointed to see Chuck Strickler go. He has been a favorite of mine for years. I am not sorry to see Anietra go - she is too stiff for this team. I am happy to see Jeff Hogan - if someone has to replace Chuck, Jeff would be my choice - but Angela An? I'll stop watching if she is on - I cannot STAND to watch her on TV - which is why I do not watch 10tv on the weekends. The ideal team, to me is Strickler/Hogan. What sexist said there has to be a girl/boy team? They were awesome together after Heather Pick's passing. I guess it's good-bye for me to 10tv because while I like Jeff, Angela cancels that out in spades.

This doesn't make a lot of sense - didn't the AM and Noon broadcast just kick butt in the ratings in November? I seem to remember reading about the great ratings on the WBNS website. The article says that the moves were based on viewer feedback, but I thought the noon broadcast had a huge advantage in the ratings - isn't this viewer feedback? And didn't readers at Columbus Monthly vote Anietra Hamper the Best Female Morning Anchor in Columbus? Theses changes by WBNS make no sense at all!!

Anietra Hamper: I understand this change. She didn't seem at ease with her presentation. Many times used/spoke incorrect wording and/or proper names of the news topic she was presenting. You could tell by her facial expression she knew she just stumbpled. I never relaly understood why she was selected instead of one of the other female news casters (Tracy or Angela) after Heather's passing. Both do an excellent job.
Chuck Strickler: I disagree with this change. He has a very relaxed and smooth delivery. He had excellent knowledge of the local, national, and international news topics he was presenting.
Jeff Hogan: He does an excellent job too, presenting the news. My question is .... wasn't he originally hired for one of the sports segments? I like Jeff, he seems very confortable with any situation presented and will do an excellent job with the AM news segment for 10TV.
My choices:
Male/Female: Chuck and Angela
Male/Male? Chuck and Jeff

I think that this is a great change! I really never liked Anietra Hamper, but I did however like Chuck Strickler. Anietra seemed to be very phony, too "happy", and shared too much personal info (i.e. her trip to Vietnam! What's that about??). I never thought she was a very good replacement for Heather.

I really like Angela An, and Jeff Hogan is a natural. I never did quite understand why Angela wasn't Heather's replacement, but glad she is aboard now!

Good move 10 TV!

Will not watch news if Angela is on. She is hard to understand when pronouncing words. I like Jeff Hogan. This channel needs to find a better female morning person. Has been lacking for some time.

I really enjoyed the morning show with Chuck and Anietra. I cannot understand the change when channel 10 just did so well in the ratings. While I enjoy Jeff, I do not care for Angela. Where did Anietra go? She is a classy lady and I hope she finds something worthy of her.

What a loss for channel 10 news! Chuck was a perfect combination of excellent reporting and a kind demeanor. What a mistake to lose him!

You really made a mistake getting rid of Chuck Strickler for your main anchor. Jeff Hogan is okay but not nearly as good . He was better with sports.

I am confused. Did Chuck and Anietra get fired? That is just a bad choice for channel 10 if that was the case. After all, they are the best in ohio. It makes no sense to fire the best. Since channel 10 is being so quiet about the changes then they obviously have something to hide. If the change was a good change then they simply would have came out and announced it. Hopefully it was
chuck and Anietra who decided they would no longer do the show. Maybe with their top ratings and the additional time they found they can do better elsewhere. When you are the best you should be paid the best and get the best choices.

Sorry, but one Columbus news reader is pretty much like another. It's about the news, not the people reading it.

Everyone wants more. The more you get the more you want. Channel 10 had more viewers but they could see the writing on the walls. Fox is quickly gaining in the ratings. Channel 10 has to ensure they stay on top and starting earlier is one way to keep the competition going. Unfortunately, when you want more it puts a burden on the one's you expect to give you more. Maybe Chuck and Anietra couldn't give anymore. Just a thought.

If one reader is like another then I will do the news. Now who will be watching? Obviously it does matter or "it just doesn't matter" would never have been so curious to have found this page :] I agree. Channel 10 had to move fast to stay on top. Who knows, maybe they made the right choice, maybe they didn't. It's not so bad right now but lets hope it doesn't get as bad as "The Early Show". Talk about a bad change!

"Now who will be watching?" People interested in the news, not in the talking head. If you want to delude yourselves thinking the guy on the TV is talking to you, go ahead. All I want is someone to tell me what's going on.

You are kidding right. That is like saying G. W. Bush reading the Declaration of Independence is the same as Barack Obama reading it. It is all about delivery, empathy and pronunciation. Can you say strategery?

You are imitating someone from Channel 4, right?
