Yeah, I live in the town where the station is located. Per the gossip that has been going around, the professional newsroom people were none too happy to have to endure this "reality" show. Rather hypocritical of the station manager to promote this silliness when he has been quick to make judgements about network programming and has often refused to air some programs that were, in his opinion, too risque for this uber-conservative community.

Hi ParadiseDave and betativoII! KTYX interviewed some local folks about the show last night on their local newscast. Comments were about 50-50. Some found the show entertaining while others said it was a poor reflection of the city. The anchors around here seem to go round and round the three local stations. They stay at one station for a while then disappear only to suddenly appear on a rival station. Very few have moved on to the big time though a few have gone on to the Austin and Houston markets. Interestingly, Judy Jordan, one of the KTYX anchors, was one of the top anchors in the Dallas market probably ten or so years ago. She left there to move to Tyler with her husband, laid low for a few years and has now popped up on local tv. Wonder what she thought of the "Anchorwoman"?

I think the weather dog is just part of the show and another ratings ploy. They had a well advertised contest to name the weather dog a year or so ago. Stormy is his name....original huh? Poor dog is always panting and I'm sure it's too hot for him under those lights. The local pet stores sell "Stormy's dog cookies", etc. I don't watch the local news on this station very often.

Some time ago there was a video on YouTube pitching the show, Anchorwoman. It showed Tyler in a very unflattering way and the station took a lot of criticism. I think it has since been removed as the producers decided to put a more positive slant to the show.
