Maddox Voted 'Hottest Newswoman' On Big Sports 590

Malorie Maddox, Courtesy of Gray TVMalorie Maddox, weekday morning news anchor at WOWT-6, topped Brandi Petersen of KETV-7 in the third annual "Hottest Newswoman of the Year" call-in poll on "The Big Show with Matt Perrault" on KXSP (590 AM).

In voting on Monday's program, Maddox narrowly edged out Petersen, who was the winner of the 2006 contest. Maddox won in 2005 and later appeared on the show to accept her prizes, something Petersen did not the following year (at the request of KETV management).

Maddox recently won the NebraskaInfoWomen Yahoo! Group poll, which asked which Omaha TV weekday morning female anchor did the best job.

Maddox vs Petersen

Malorie Maddox is very pretty, and a fine anchor. (She is made even more attractive because Channel 6 has paired her with Jim Sidlecki, who has a face for radio.) And, of course Maddox does the best job of the Morning Show female anchors. I mean, look at the competition. KETV's Elictia Hammond's delivery is that of a clueless beauty queen who isn't THAT beautiful, and Terri Stowell over at "the action news station" doesn't have much personality at all.

Meanwhile, back at Channel 6...too bad the rest of their morning show sucks for air. Right now, Malorie is very charming and personable, but just wait--Channel 6 has a knack for dulling down all of their anchors and reporters. Just look what they did to the once-perky, personable Tracy Madden. Evolution to snoozeville complete (just like the rest of the on-air "talent" at 6).

As for Brandi Petersen over at KETV...she's a definite up-and-comer. Youthful, energetic, decent anchor and a damn good reporter (Malorie Maddox is only average in the field, which is better than most of her fellow reporters at WOWT.) You can tell that Brandi Petersen is being groomed to become the next main co-anchor at KETV. (If Channel 6 follows their regular routine, Malorie will be stuck on mornings or weekends forever...or until she is snatched up by a bigger market.)

The characteristic that both Malorie Maddox and Brandi Petersen have in common is that they are both genuinely nice, professional people who deserve to go far.

Oops...I meant Kerri Stowell, not Terri. Sorry.

c'mon, Sean. That Nebraska Info Women Yahoo group poll consisted of 14 votes! I can't believe you would use that as a reference. I like Malorie, too, but that poll wasn't even worth mentioning.

"...Yahoo poll... 14 votes... wasn't worth mentioning..."

And a total 70 votes for all five "contestants" is worth what?

Malorie Maddox is attractive and I'm sure she does a fine job on her Daybreak show. But I simply cannot watch it. That Jim Siedlecki that they sit her with is awful. He is unfathomably unwatchable.

Brandi Petersen, on the other hand, positively rocks! I keep hoping the day will come that they pull a "Carol Schraeder" on Julie Cornell and she finds herself being pushed out by the far superior Brandi (Bowing to Brandi)

Upon hearing of Mallory's victory, Jim Siedlecki was heard to comment; "Gollllleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.........

Ok, read the first line of this paragraph.....Mallory Maddox "topped" Brandi Peterson. Damn, And I missed it.

Malorie and Brandi should both move on to a bigger market. Phoenix would be a good market for the both of them. They hire lots of great looking female anchors/reporters. and just think.. they could both wear bikinis year round!mmmmmm

"Matt Perrault ended his "Big Show" sports talk radio program Tuesday with a tongue-lashing toward the management of KETV (Cox Channel 9).

"I will never talk about Channel 7 on this show ever again," Perrault told listeners on KXSP (590 AM). "I'm boycotting Channel 7. We will not have KETV people on, we will not mention them and I'm still deciding whether they will be a part of the competition next year."

The "competition" Perrault referred to was his "Hottest Local News Chick of 2006" contest that "KETV First News Weekend" co-anchor Brandi Petersen won on Dec. 22."

Matt Perrault, a man of integrity hehehehe.............

tb said...

Sadly, I am NOT Ted Brockman. But if I were, I would eviscerate 590-am and that pathetic excuse for a radio host of the so-called "big show." Since I am not, I will only say that Mr. Perrault should not be expected to impress anyone or exhibit any amount of class. He works for one of the lowest-rated stations in town. Oh, and Matt...you needn't worry about who will or won't be a part of the Hottest Local News Chick contest next year. Rumor is that there won't be a Big Sports 590 by then anyway. Hope your resume and air-check is up to date.

And to those who wanted me to be Ted Brockman...sorry to disappoint.

So, the Perrault is a liar? WHAT! No...say it isn't so.

The Perrault a jerk and a liar....c'mon....

Just ignore him and he'll go away. He's not even worth bashing. I feel sorry for him. Like I feel sorry for those poor animals that are born all mutated and destined to die.

Oh, congrats Malorie. What an...honor?

Perrault who...?

Huh? What? Matt Perrault made a statement that later turned out to be false?

I'm shocked.

No seriously. Total heart failure.

I am clutching my chest and screaming to Elizabeth that I'm coming to join her, baby.

Anonymous said...

Do you think Matt does this to meet women? He is lonely after all.

C'mon ladies...what a catch! A know it all, loudmouth thirty year old who works odd hours and has a fetish for all things Boston. Slip on a Red Sox cap and he'll start drooling all over you baby!

Remove the Trash said...

@8:53AM...check out his latest blog entry from today. He's encouraging people to vote for a particular Playboy playmate for playmate of the year, whom he'll apparently have on his program today as well.

What a pervy scumbag.

Then again, if you scroll down towards the bottom of the main page on bigsports590.com (among the clutter of other crap haphazardly placed on there) there is an image link to the "Babe of the Day".

No wonder he's on that station...fits the mold perfectly!

What trash.

It's amazing how obsessed you guys are with Matt's show. He obviously has your attention...how frustrated are you in your careers that you flip out at the sight of his name.

@9:31PM..."obsessed"? Nah.

It gets the attention that it does because the host/show is like a vacuum...hard for everyone to avoid something that sucks so much. :-p

Regarding "Hottest Omaha Newsman", I nominate Carlo Cecchetto...as long as he doesn't open his mouth and speak!

Hottest Newsman. I'm going to have to go with Todd Andrews from KETV. My goodness, would I like to take a shower with him.

Anonymous said...

I'd have to go with Jim Siedleicki. He's hot and he's tall. Mmmmmmmmmmm.

Anonymous said...

Todd Andrews -- he tries so hard to be "ghetto" and "funny" every time he's on KETV News Weekend, and he fails miserably with each feeble attempt.

Between him and that schmuck Roger Schwartz...were it not for Brandy Petersen or Lisa Stiles riding shotgun that program would be a waste of 90 minutes of quality airtime.

Anonymous said...

Perrault is still on the air? Does anyone, besides Sean, actually listen to that turd. I have NEVER heard anyone (except maybe Trav) who tries so damn hard to sound exactly like the stereotypical national sports radio host and fails so miserably. He needs to give it up and apply for the late night shift at 99.9, where his talents can be put to better use.

Lisa STITES is long gone.
BRANDI is great and belongs on weekdays.
Even if you don't like Todd Andrews or Roger Schwartz, they're still so much better than what WOWT-6 slings at you on the weekends.

I can't watch the WOWT morning news on the weekends because I have this terrible fear of accidentally viewing that train wreck that is Rachel Pierce.

But the hands down least watchable newscast is the KETV evening news on the weekends. Farah Fazal, John Campbell and Matt Schick? Has there ever been that much "ick" in an anchor team?

Anonymous said...

Oh please! Fazal and team are not nearly as repulsive as Devon "Lockjaw" Patton over at KMTV or as boring as the sleepfest at WOWT. Let's face it: Omaha isn't a market chock full of attractive on-air personalities. There are a few, but most are average to fugly.

Anonymous said...

Boy, for all the Perrault haters on here, there certainly are a lot of you that seem to know what he says and talks about on air. So, therefore, that tells us that you must obviously be listening at times. Looks like he is more popular than you think he is. Or maybe you are listening to be outraged...yes...perhaps that is it...

11:59AM -- "ick"? What are we, in sixth grade?

FYI, Matt Schick is the only one with "ick" in his name... and I actually find he and John Campbell to be pretty cute.

But that's just me.

Anonymous said...

Did anyone else watch WOWT weeknights over the holidays? It was either John or Tracy anchoring - not both.

Was it my imagination that John seemed more relaxed? Maybe because he wasn't scared stiff that he'd have to respond to one of Tracy's ad-libs?

Was it also my imagination that Tracy seemed a bit "perkier"-- maybe because she didn't have to slow it down for John?

Taking a look at all of the comments made on this blog about WOWT's anchor teams, maybe WOWT should send them all to "on-air chemistry" class???

Neil N. Sucket said...

on Channel 7 weekend, I love how Todd Andrews always says "...and Roger Schwartz is in the house...." Cracks me up every time....BTW, USE THE SCHWARTZ!

Waaaay up above, TB said "You can tell that Brandi Petersen is being groomed to become the next main co-anchor at KETV."

and Stella said " I keep hoping the day will come that they pull a "Carol Schraeder" on Julie Cornell and she finds herself being pushed out by the far superior Brandi "

Be careful what you wish for!!

If you push out Julie and insert Brandi, you'll radically change the age mix of the anchors. Age-wise, Brandi's going to look like a high schooler next to Rob, Bill, and Scheutz.

So do you then "Schraeder" them too? If so, we'll end up watching the new anchor team of Brandi, Todd Andrews, Matt Schick, and John Campbell (sorry, even Chuck McW is getting to old to look perky next to Brandi).

WOWT's looking better and better...

Hey 12:42, don't kid yourself - one listen to Perrault's show sticks with you for a long time...there are a lot of people who have been permanently turned off by radio in general after one listen to his abortion of a program.

Why were Rob McCartney and Brandi Petersen anchoring the Sunday 10:00 newscast? Farrah Fazal was reporting. And Bill Randby was doing weather instead of John Campbell. It's not sweeps yet! Do any KETV people have the answer to this one?

Anonymous said...

During the newscast they said they were making changes but they were not very specific. The re-open had Rob, Brandi, Bill and Matt so i guess that is the new Sunday anchor team, I don't know what is happening the rest of the week.

Anonymous said...

Oooooohhhhhh pleeeeeaaassssseeeee...It would be too good to be true to have Farah 5 nights a week !!!!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Here's the rumor...
Brandi, Rob, Bill, and Schick on Sunday nights. Brandi will anchor Sunday's early newscast. Then Monday-Thursday, Brandi and Julie will co-anchor the 5:00 and Julie and Rob will do the 6:00 and 10:00. On Fridays, Julie will anchor the 5,6, and 10 by herself. Apparently Nichole Berlie will anchor the weekend mornings with Todd Andrews. That's a lot of changes. I don't know how two female anchors will go over at 5:00.

Farrah will still anchor Saturdays.

PLLLEEAAASSEEEEE tell me Farrah will be doing the Saturday news nekked so we can all enjoy that delicious ghetto boo-tay.

Anonymous said...

Hmmmm. Maybe they are trying the Brandi/Rob combo seeing if people go for it before finally giving Anne Frank and her diary the boot.

Colin said...

I think its about time a station in Omaha mixes up their anchors a bit. They do it in the bigger markets. The closest we have it here to that is Channel 6's 4 o'clock news.

It'll be interesting to see what other changes they make at 7. I see that Roger Schwartz is gone from the ketv.com website.

Anonymous said...

Now that Chuck is back Roger who was a temp is gone. Also Bill Stekis was fired.

Anonymous said...

That's funny about Steckis because he was on live during the 11:30 am newscast. He was there for the arrest of the two who broke out of the Montgomery Co jail. Steckis has always been a temporary part-timer at KETV.

I love Andrea said...

Stekis was a nightmare on the air....

I for one, think Farrah and her juicy ghetto bootie should just sit off to the side of every newscast in that hooker dress with the slits she wears occasionally to live shots...she should not speak...just sit and show some leg.

Finally, was voting for Bredow allowed? She is by far the hottest little geek weatherchick of all time. She is so hot she makes my tongue sweat.

Anonymous said...

Bill wasn't fired. He was on yesterday.

Anonymous said...

No doubt she IS the hottest! Not only is she hot...but she is a great journalist too! Now lets get that fake Julie Cornell off the air. UGH. She is just not pleasant to watch and see. Put Brandi on at 6 & 10 and move Julie to 5 and Sundays!!!!

I just moved to Omaha and think you all are crazy... Kerri Stowell is not only the most attractive out of all the anchors but also very talented. She's the only reason I watch Channel 3 and no other station.
