    Over a month has gone by since CTV Edmonton axed local amateur sports (as well as solid pro Greyson Knutson in the process). To date, the move has not sent me over to Global and probably never will. I'm a CTV guy through & through and apparently pretty much anything short of the dismissal of the iconic Daryl McIntyre won't change that.

    They must have punted Darcy Seaton as well because the only people doing the sports news are Adam Cook and Nahreman Issa.

    Darcy seems to be expunged from the CTV Edm website.

    It's too bad the sports was axed - sport guys always have the most personality in a newscast. But CBC seems very amateur and Global very US-style plastic, so CTV is it for me. Losing local sports coverage is a real shame for local sports groups, ending a long involvement with the community.

    I also saw Meg Morrison on the late news after one of the Oilers games last week.

    She was on the other night too so she's still around.

    Meanwhile, Carla Turner, the weekend weather lady, is showing a baby bump so she may not be long for the station.

    Next week, Erin Isfeld starts co-anchoring with D-Mac in a new studio, Carmen Leibel becomes the 5 PM anchor and Joel Gotlib is going back to reporting.

    Did CTV do another round of cuts to the news room? Seems to be fewer reporters on the beat the last couple of months.

    I've noticed on holidays like long weekend Mondays, there is no CTV Edmonton News at 5pm. Yet CTV Calgary will have their 5-6pm newscast.

    What gives?

    Shanelle Kaul's last day as the weekend news anchor was tonight. She is going to her hometown Toronto to work at CP24 (CTV affiliate). Bianca Millions gave her a gift bag at the end of the 6pm newscast.

    Fare thee well, Shanelle.
    I wonder what will happen with Bianca once Carla Turner returns from her maternity leave

    I like how in the latest CTV Edmonton ad the last story is being repeated by 3 reporters - the first two who left the station.

    Can't believe I missed this, but former CTV Edmonton Sports Reporter Bryan Mudryk is now doing play-by-play for the Habs and Sens on TSN's regional NHL broadcasts. He actually sounds good doing it, too!

    Carla Turner is back from mat leave! A bit rusty during her first weather forecast though.

    ^ Bianca Millions has done the odd newsreading bit, after her weather slot, along with Nicole Weisberg on the late news. Maybe she's transitioning into more of a news role.

    Carla's 2nd day back was much better although she has this habit of pointing at the camera.

    Exactly what I was suspecting a couple of posts up. Those mini 'support' snips were indicators to me.

    It is nice to see Nicole Weisberg anchor the weekend news again. Sarah Plowman was rather awkward at the task.

    Sarah Plowman is improving, less stumbles. Yep, Nicole Weisberg is good, but please quit that quick fake, ingratiating 'smile' she throws in here and there.

    ^ Then you get the gasping Nancy Carlson with her stilted delivery and frantic gasp for air at the beginning of each sentence. Turn away from the TV and just listen.

    Agreed. I also like the appointment of Nahreman Issa as the full-time anchor of the News at Noon. She's an absolute natural in that role.

    Jonathan Glasgow and Dez Melenka have left the station. Glasgow has a new reporting gig in Denver, while Melenka has started the co-working space Creative Hive in the west end.

    Jonathon Glasgow made so many mistakes reading the news. He really struggled some days. Nahreman Issa is very comfortable.

    Sarah Plowman still hasn't gotten any better. It's like she's reading her teleprompter material for the very first time.

    Meanwhile, Matt Woodman has regular trouble pronouncing certain words, putting the stress on the wrong syllable, like English isn't his first language, but not in the usual ways that English newcomers do. It's very odd. I wrote to the CTV News director to suggest that someone tell him how to pronounce "fentanyl" - it doesn't rhyme with "alcohol." He seems to have learned, sorta.

    I had to shut off CTV News about 25 minutes into their broadcast. Sarah Plowman (who was filling in for Nicole Weisberg) was absolutely atrocious and should just stick to being a reporter. Carla Turner was not much help either as she flubbed her way through her weather segments (a rarity for her).

    Last night at 6 with the always-solid Weisberg anchoring, Plowman was on set to do a live read report. Yikes! The woman is simply unable to properly read stuff out loud. She would be far better-suited for an off-air role.

    It's like she's seeing the script for the very first time, and some of the words for the first time in her life. Matt Woodman is noticeably the same, like English isn't his first language. Sometimes head-scratching mispronunciations.

    Woodman's reading isn't perfect but I can't put it in the same category as Plowman's which is shockingly bad.

    I've noticed Erin Isfeld slip up her words here and there. Rob Williams can be quite bad at reading the teleprompter, which is one of the reasons why I hardly bother with CTV Morning Live anymore.

    Yeah, Top_Dawg has to agree.

    Jordan is the only redeeming on air personality on CTV Morning Live.

    I would say that Cory Edel is their most redeeming on-air personality on CTV Morning Live.
    Jordan Hertner is fun and has lasted much longer than the merry-go-round before her, but for the most part her traffic reporting leaves much to be desired.
