More From the Press Release Pile ...

Have you noticed that Elictia Hammond is gone from KETV-7?

The former morning co-anchor, who joined KETV in 2004, left the station June 30 to spend more time with her family.

“We appreciate the work Elictia has done over the past three-and-a-half years to help build First News into the morning news leader,” said KETV President and General Manager Sarah Smith.

“Elictia is leaving First News on a high ratings note. In the most recent Nielsen survey, May 2008, the program gained viewers (adults 25-54) over May 2007 and it has consistently been the No. 1 local news program among adult 25-54 viewers.”

Did I notice that she was gone?

Heck, I didn't notice when she was on.

More from the press release pile....??!! When was the last time you guys checked the pile? Hasn't she been gone for about a month now?

Thanks for month and a half old news. Don't try to hard now.

I bet The Perrault hangs out at the Blue Oyster Bar.

Is that where the Cult of the same name plays?

Wow, I just re-read the post and indeed it said she left June 30. I'm not one to bash these guys because this obviously is mostly a big goof, but that's pretty weak. I'm guessing the Marconi release is next?

Hey...
What happened to
O Newscope / SplashFart?

Answer: I made a terrible mistake and, well, have to reconstruct the blog. It will now be at splashfart.blogspot.com

As for the Hammond exit: she actually did leave to be a full-time mother. This time, it had nothing to do with ego.

But is Travis Justice on the way out? That's the more timely question.

Nicole Berlie will get the am gig. Is Bredow on her way out? Thats the real question. I've heard yes.

Anonymous said...

Is Bredow looking for another position or is she getting the ax?

Anonymous said...

She's going to replace Travis at 3rd.

Anonymous said...

10:13, 5:00 and 6:24...she's not getting the ax. She's leaving the biz by her own decision.

Where is Andrea going? There won't be a reason to wake up in the morning if she leaves channel 7. There was hope once Elictia and her fake banter were gone...but losing Bredow is the worst thing that could happen.

It's the equivalent of when Courtney Gerrish left WOWT's morning show...stopped watching them after that.

Oh but there is Robin Meade...CNN headline news.....

Julie leaves to be a full time mom. Elictia leaves to be a full time mom.

Should the countdown clock start for Tracey Madden? Especially since they have her working Sundays now?

Career vs. Motherhood. Gotta be a tough call for all of them.

I know that Bredow has been involved with some charity work. Could this be related to that?
Or was she tired of waking up at 3:00 am every morning and saw the handwriting on the wall that Bill Randby will never leave Channel 7 and she would be waking up at 3:00 am for the next 10 years until she married Todd Andrews and had twins and decided to leave to spend more time with her kids?

I can't wait to read the press release verbatim over a month after she leaves Channel 7 in the City Weekly Medi Blog for the last news on the subject!

Ted Brockman said...

How 'bout we cut these guys some slack. They both have jobs that take precedence over keeping up a blog. It's not like this info will show up in the OWH.

Anonymous said...

The OWH still puts a paper out??? Really??? Who knew???

Anonymous said...

Oh and we DON'T HAVE JOBS Ted??? It takes 5 minutes max to copy and paste from the email press releases and post.....

Anonymous said...

5 minutes...hell, I can do it in 5 SECONDS.

Oh...you're talking about cutting and pasting info onto the web. I thought you were talking about having sex.

Sincerely,

The Perrault

Obviously Brockman has purchased property in Has Beenville before moving on to Never Wasland. Boring blasting Six, OWH, Maddox, 3rd; used to be kinda cool, now it's like watching Unitas play QB for San Diego.

Seriously...this isn't news. Obviously this article was a mistake...for god's sake, its two months old. Minge, come on man. We thought you were better than this.

Anonymous said...

Or at least better than lame responses like 9:47.

Anonymous said...

The 9:47 add-on was funny. The 5:26 comeback attempt? Not so much. But it was unoriginal.

hammond is a total rag..saw her at hy vee once had her nose so far in the air it was pathetic!

Anonymous said...

7:01 obviously is trying to pump up it's own anonymous posts. None of those had any originality or offered anything of value to the discussion. Now what 8:10 had to say, that's more like it!

The best thing about Elictia Hammond is the fact that she's no longer on the air.

This can only one thing said...

MORE FUBAR.

I'll miss Elictia, she's super sexy.

It made my life that Andrea Bredow has left! I could not stand another minute of her whining about getting up in the morning, or the same catchphrases she relied on like grandma's crutch, or her inability to enunciate. Thank goodness she recognized her limitations. Respect for that!
