The rumor mill has it, that Colette Boyd is returning to TV5, in the Morning Show, to fill the vacancy left by Alana Holland. All I can say is........O M G.

She’s back and Veronica Gabriel from WLNS will be on the morning show desk too.

Make no mistake, Boyd’s deal is crystal clear what she will do and what she will not do. If she’s pushed, she’ll leave before management knows it.

I like Collette. But she seemed miscast with Custer. Not sure how the audience will receive her in mornings. The last experiment with an all-female anchor desk definitely didn’t work. Good luck.

I like her, but she needs to stop waving her hands every time she talks. Way too many hand gestures. Still, a good talent than can to better than TV 5.

Let’s just say she won’t be filling in on weeknights, weekends, or holidays.

I’m happy that Boyd is back. Wnem was smart for bringing her back tons of people in the community enjoying watching her on tv. This was a smart business move

REALLY?

She comes off as arrogant on the air. Didn’t think she was a good anchor at all

I never cared for her either. I think she would be good for Radio. Then no one would see her constant and stagnant wig, and her hands flopping like a freshly caught fish. But, she is a good script or teleprompter reader.

Veronica Gabriel wasn't told of Meredith bringing in Boyd. The intention was that this would be an attempt for her to elevate her career, but it appears now she will be the new Alana as the second banana and lost in the shuffle.

Veronica is very green and mostly a reporter. It’ll be an interesting pairing.

Should be an AM disaster. Collette already is hogging the spotlight, as she didn't let Veronica have enough time to introduce herself during Wake Up.


turn up the radio! mighty in might!

What?! Never.. As our lord and master, Douchebag 101 (Skippy D for short) once said in one of the infamously lost posts, Collette is a BEAUTIFUL BLACK WOMAN!!! SHE PLAYS SECOND FIDDLE TO NOBODY! SHE'S NOBODY'S CO-ANCHOR!!!!!"

(For reference, she WAS Sam Merrill's co-anchor at the time, and was referred to as such, and Skippy D shit his pants with outrage)

Most of the anchors/reporters come off as arrogant at TV-5...
