Well, it seems I write these "so long..." items more and more these days...as Dan Gross reports that FOX 29's Dawn Stensland has exited the premesis, unfortunately.
Gone now are the teams of Noonan, Chernekoff, Cariello/Guarino and Cherkin/Tolefson as well as Huddleston, Stensland, Guarino and Tollefson. Quite a shame too because all the changes the powers-that-be have made at FOX do not seem to have made a darn dent in their ratings. Bolaris' return gave NO RETURN on the ratings scale and my personal opinion of Kerri Lee Halkett is not a good one. I'll suffice to say that her sing-songy voice surely grates on my nerves and I see her as nothing more than a stand-up Barbie doll. When have you seen her in the field showcasing her journalistic skills?
It's no surprise, of course, that Dawn was shown the door. For over a year now, she's been absent from most news promotions and at some points in watching the broadcast, it almost felt as though maybe Dawn should slide her chair right off the set to make room for Halkett.
Hopefully, Stensland's agent has some irons in the fire for her...and good luck is wished for her--for sure.
