I was pretty shocked to hear this one last night News 4's David Cruz Resigns Following Arrest | WOAI.COM: San Antonio News

I didn't care for the guy as a news anchor/reporter because of how he always seemed really stiff and he didn't seem to know much about the city. However, I'm glad to see someone that can finally admit to a mistake and not come up with a stupid excuse for it, especially something as bad as this. Major props for being a man and doing the right thing. Hopefully some others will do the same..

Default Great Day SA-Kens 5

Has anybody watched GreatDaySA lately? Without Eileen Teves sitting
on the couch with Bridget Smith on Mondays is very boring. Infact Eileen Teves should be on the couch more often than the other two (Kellie & Lauren). Eileen is very professional, a very good interviewer, and very fun to watch. I watch GreatDaySA because of Eileen.

Wow, you should be her agent or something! You really, really, really want us to like her, don't you?

KENS 5 - watch it the most, but usually avoid afternoon. Marrou wears his bias in plain daylight and I don't respect that and his little cheap shots and quips. I don't see that as professional. Then there's Wendy Rigby, who apparently thinks all the world's problems can be solved if salt and smoking are outlawed. They made me happy when annoying blonde dumb-*ss Megan Alexander left though. I'd still like to know how Sarah Lucero got a top anchor job and bumped Deborah Knapp at so young an age. Marrou also isnt too bright. I remember one fire a couple of years ago, in which it was summer time (hot enough as it is) and an apartment complex was burning, and Marrou asked the field reporter "is it hot?"

WOAI - don't care for them. The phrase "trying too hard to be hard-hitting investigative journalists" comes to mind.

KSAT - bland. I hate to sound nasty, but Leslie Mouton did the morning news and field news up until she got cancer. Then she played it and took lead afternoon anchorwoman job from Ursula Pari - dirty and exploitative in my opinion.



Well there. I am sure I'll get some venom slung my way for stating it, but that's how I see it.

Didn't she only get the job because she was Eileen's friend?

But she took Megan with her, so it's a "win" in my book.

Sorry folks, although I like the idea of local television shows very much, I think Great Day SA and the local talk show that WOAI runs on weekday mornings are the biggest wastes of airtime on local television. Both shows are getting to the point where they don't even have a pretense of being informative or entertaining. They exist strictly as a platform for advertisers.

Marrou, I guess since he's been doing the news since the mid 70's, he feels he can say anything he wants now. and whats the deal with those suits he wears? one night he was a wearing a bright PINK coat, and it was bright.LOL

Well, in the beginning, it was obvious; she is stunningly beautiful. But over the years, I truly believe she has turned out to be more than just easy on the eyes. She really does a great job of delivering the news and actually shines when Chris Marrou is off. Who knows, maybe the people who hired her years ago saw more than just a pretty face.
