Saw some video on YouTube from her old station in Salinas - Monterey.

She was rough around the edges in terms of delivery; hopefully she's improved since then.

She looks really good!!! BUT she's not that good. She stumbles over words. She says "degrees" This morning she said "at 9am it will be 18 degrees"
WOOO I'm glad she told me it would be 18 degrees, I was thinking it could be 18 pickled pigs feet.
When I first started in radio, the PD told me. Do NOT say degrees while giving the temp. Everyone knows it will be degrees.
But I hope she will get better. She has potential

I like her. I'm still unhappy that Mecklenberg is gone though.

I once had a GM tell me that anyone who says 'degrees' that is more than 6 months out of school should be fired.

At the time I thought he was joking and chuckled. He was probably right.

Wish they get Kelly Smith back to weekend and just had Tracy during the week. At least Tracy more exciting and not so stiff like Kelly delivery is.

Disagree uncleducky, Kelly is funny, good sense of humor, very attractive. Tracy needs better skills, she will get there. Kelly fits that morning show well. Davis is a riot.

I really think you are nit-picking over the degrees issue. Now if she said "degrees Fahrenheit" that would be different. It still isn't as bed as the WZZM13 people who say "(time) on the clock", as opposed to "(time) on the coffee table"?

I don't know. It's pretty cool when George Thorogood's bartender says the clock on the wall say three o'clock.

Are we watching the same person. Kelly, Kelly Smith from Fox 17 she is on the week day mornings. Her deliver is boring and she stands like she is on a board and can not move. Not sure where the sense of humor is because I don't see it. Her being attractive I do agree on that.. I think that the new girl be better with the others from the weekday morning show.

I am watching her this (Saturday) morning. She is awful, and certainly not the caliber of this city.

For those of you who are raving about her, it has to be about her looks and her looks only. She is what T.V. news has become, cheap and pretty.

I am not a weather person, but her forecast for Easter is a high of 61 and a rain snow mix. How in the Hell can you have a mix when it's going to be 61?

Sad state of affairs at 17. Thank goodness they have Nicole this morning, that's their saving grace.
