Well, years ago he was a customer of mine, and he and his family are just very nice and down-to-earth.
I've met Randy Beamer a few times, he was pretty nice. A friend of mine was pretty close friends with Vanessa Macias and (then) fiance, Bob (I can't remember his last name) who was the weekend sports guy on KENS until just recently moved to Austin. They were pretty nice, too.

I thought Megan Alexander was a much better anchor than Ainsley Earhardt, Megan used to sit in from time to time for her.

I think KENS5 has the best news coverage. It may be a gimic, but they have the most live reports, their graphics dont look as cheap (especially compared to WOAI) and KSAT's green screen set background is crap. All of KENS5's news Anchors are San Antonio natives with the exception of Ross Palombo. That says to me they know the city they are covering better than the others.

That Bob was Bob Ballou.

I cannot believe Bridget Smith is taking Kristina's place. I simply cannot bear to look at her. TOO much tanning, fake blond hair, horrible pale pink lipstick and insincere reporting. I just cannot see how someone has not pulled her aside for a makeover. She has totally sucumbed to the hollywood 'standard' of beauty. I have seen her on the show and think she fawns all over the guest and does not seem to be an authentic person. I will NO longer watch Great Day SA. They should have given it to Eileen. Now she is a person true to herself. She comes across as a real person.
I just watched for the first time since they changed hosts and I couldn't believed how unpolished Bridget's appearance is, especially as she sits next to Eileen, who looks like she's dressed to be on television. Bridget seemed to be better than Kristina at interveiwing and making small talk, but she'd be so much prettier if the station groomed her appropriately.
She doesn't have to look like everyone else on tv, but her hair looks like you couldn't get a brush through it and she's wearing too much makeup. Also, is she wearing light contacts or does she have blue eyes?

I saw her (Bridget) live and in person in a elevator at NEISD's central office one afternoon. She was wearing jeans (not very professional for a reporter) and looked like a Tammy Faye wannabe. Loaded up on the makeup, and the hair...my GOD the hair...someone needs to tell her that using a whole can of hairspray went out of style during the 80's. And besides the appearance, she just had this air about her, like she was perpetually POed...or maybe she just hadn't gotten the story she wanted that afternoon. Finally, let's not forget about the "bad DJ" voice...all around annoying.

Default talent at KENS

I think overall KENS has the best looking talent in the market.
Sarah is amazing, Kellie is super cute, Ross is breathtaking, Brian is very easy on the eyes....need I say more?

I too had the a strange attractiom for the Watson's MILF. I think she reminded me of an old gf or maybe it's that look she gives or something, idk. Anyways, I found this for all infatuated with her.

I hate to break your heart, but she isn't tanning...lets just say she does the opposite, just like Michael Jackson ('nuff said?). She wears so much makeup the fake contacts, and fake hair extensions....she just looks like a complete phoney. I have to agree...she is awlful...her appearance, her poise, she isn't funny or personable, she just seems so uncomfortable on the show. I am hoping she is just a temporary fix until they find someone permanent. She is just a little too Ghetto Fabulous for SA.

I am hoping they will get rid of Bridget Smith and replace her with Kimberly Crawford. She is fun in the morning and knows how to dress and apply make-up apporpriately

Yes, I agree that Bridget Smith is horrible - no skills and that appearance. Does anyone have any thoughts on the new person on the Fox morning show, Monica Taylor?
