    I'm sorry for Mrs. Deselms tragic fire incident…but Fox17 should take this opportunity to end its relationship with her. She is a mediocre reporter at best and is one of the reasons I do not watch your newscasts.

    The news should never be about the reporter – all too common in today's world of reporting – the big sendoff when a reporter goes to another station or a news story about a reporters new baby, etc. Let's take the focus off of the reporters and put it back on the 'news' or what the stations decide is the 'news' anyway. Reporters are just that, reporters. They are not celebrities.
