KETV Lowers the Bar Some More

In an attempt to lure more stupid people to their morning newsblock, Channel 7 has replaced traffic reporter James Lawrence with what sounds like a 14-year-old girl named (we think) Laura Liggett. Whereas Lawrence's reports sounded smooth and professional, Liggett's are punctuated with lots of ums and giggly yammering.

The upshot of bringing her on board, however, is that weatherbimbo Andrea Bredow will now have someone to go to the mall with.

This is a temporary switch. Metro moved James to when another traffic person left and layoff Bredow. She has more class than you'll ever have.

May not be as far off with the 14 year old comment (Laura Liggett) as you think. Found a reference to her in the UNL Journalism Dept. as having received a freshman award in 2003. Perfect.....replace a professional with a child.

Hey ilovenews,

Your response doesn't make a lot of sense. It looks like you're missing something. "Metro moved James to when another traffic person left..." What are you trying to say is the reason? I'm curious.

You may be right about the class thing. But my clothes never look like they've been painted on, and when I speak, I don't sound like I have a head cold and a dozen Lifesavers in my mouth.

Well said, Ted. Imagine how poor John Oakey feels, sitting between Bimbo and the Beast (Omarosa) every morning.

Midtown said...

Come on Ted... lay off Bredow.
She does not look like her clothes are painted on and does a fine job each morning. Compare her dress to many of the females on the air in this market you will fine her outfits are a step above on most mornings.
BTW... the cars are behaving this morning.

Midtown,

Let's just say that most of Andrea's upper-body attire reflects poor decision-making in the "what size should I get?" department.

Someone just needs to say, "Okay. We get it. You have big boobs. We're all very impressed. Now put on something that fits and don't skip your speech therapy appointments any more."

Teddy,
I don't get the "marbles in the mouth" comment. There may be an occassional slur of the words. I credit lack of sleep for that mistake. But Bredow is well spoken and very intelligent. As far as the "big boobs" comment, Bredow is not big by any means of the imagination. I hear Victoria Secret's makes bras that pad your size. I think TV makes everything bigger.
Cogitor, I mis-typed. Metro Traffic (the company that provides traffic reporters to TV and Radio Stations) reassigned James because they were short-staffed. Laura is a temporary replacement.

Hey, Ted.

They say the camera adds 10 pounds. In the case of Bredow, make that 10 per side.

BOOOYAHHHHHH!

Bring her to me. We can discuss mammatocumulus clouds...

I really CAN'T stand Laura Liggit (sp?). she is really annoying and you can tell has no idea what the heck she is doing. it's already bad enough to watch Elictia. James Lawrence was 100 times better he had a much better voice and got to the point. it wasn't like listening to nails on a chalkboard .If channel 7 is trying to get rid of morning viewers they are on their way! I miss the old way John, Mike'l and Andrea. I hope Laura is out the door quick.

Nor do I get the Andrea Bredow bashing. Granted, I have only seen her during morning coverage. I have never seen her cover severe weather, and I hear she can use some improvement there. But I think she does a great job in the mornings.

I too long for the old days, when it was just John, Andrea, and Mike'l.

Cogitor said...

Ilovenews, thanks for the clarification.

Thomas York said...

I like Andrea Bredow's profile on the KETV site. It said she previously worked in Fargo where she "battled" the Red River floods and blizzards.

DiggerDog said...

You're right midtown, Bredow looks like an unattractive librarian. She's not TV material.

Contacts, laying off the cheeseburgers and joining a gym could only help Bredow.

gerrishnut said...

Stop with the weight comments. Bredow is decent looking, but that gets old after about 3 minutes off hearing her babble on about cold fronts and high temps.

I honestly think Hammond is better looking that Bredow. But neither are Gerrish-quality.

pia said...

How childish has this blog become?!!! This Bredow bashing is an all time low. I would like to see what "Ted" looks like, probably some pervert holding A tv remote in one hand with a laptop nearby to share his warped views! What a LOSER!
Bredow rules..Brockman drools!
Name calling a language you understand!

scottrst said...

i agree with everybody with Hammond must go. Who said she is better looking than Bredow, no one is that hard up. Oh well, I would kick Bredow out of my bed for telling severe weather stories
