I was a Producer for a television station. It came as a surprise. It was an incredible opportunity for me, especially after being pregnant. I got to take on more responsibilities and set the news agenda for the local area. I got to be a very creative and decisive leader, if I can say that. It was a dream come true in many ways to get that promotion, and I… that’s all I can say! It was great. It was an amazing experience for me.

Good riddance.

she reminds me of TV stars that think they are more then what they are. She was good on The Today show because she was a part of a 4 person team. She has never been seen as a serious Newswoman. I like Ann Curry better and that is not saying much.

Won’t watch anything she is headlining.

YEP it is obvious.. I don’t care for Katie.

I was with you until you brought up ANN CURRY (total a$$ kisser in interviews – esp. with Brad Pitt and not much substance — afraid to offend celebs and other big whigs by asking hardball questions). But as you said, liking her more is not saying much….

How the h.e.l.l did she get that job & for that long? Don’t see her as a serious news anchor. Never did tune in & never will.

You are so awesome! I don’t suppose I’ve truly read through anything like that before. So great to discover another person with a few original thoughts on this subject matter. Seriously.. thank you for starting this up. This web site is something that is required on the internet, someone with some originality!
