Let's see, she's been at this since 1989, so we'll make the headline say she's marking ten years on the job. No wonder this place is going under, we can't even get simply arithmetic straight.

I saw that too, but then I realized that the poor headliner writer simply ran out of fingers to count on.

IGH!
I mean this is simple math. I saw the headline and I said to myself, "There is NO way it has ONLY been ten years!"

And they left the best part of the story out in that Linda Kollmeyer appeared in the September 1982 issue of Playboy featuring the Girls of The Big Eight while she was studying nursing at Mizzou!

I've watched Linda for over 10 years, and always thought I was the only one that realized she was special. No matter what kind of mood I was in, when Linda came on she'd bring a smile to my face. I too think she's hott, and I'm gay! Hahaha!

Remember those stories about Mary Hart giving people seizures? That's how I feel about Linda Kollmeyer! What some see as spunky or endearing, I think comes across as self-important. It's like Katie Curic. Too cheery, too spunky. And that little dance at the end? BLECH! We mute the lottery drawings when she's on!

Amen. I feel the same way, except I go a step further and change the channel when she is on. Listening to her is like listening to fingernails scratching a chalkboard.

She is so annoying. When I see her pulling the numbers, I hit the "mute" button.

She's obviously on drugs. I don't celebrate the tax on the mathematically impaired, especially when the proceeds go to corrupt Illinois insiders.

Boy, after 20 years you'd think her performance would improve, no? Still looks like a novice to me.

She is very annoying. When she is on, it's time to change channels. Waiting for her to retire.
