  1. Should have promoted her to weekend morning anchor because she did a great job. Their
    weekend morning anchor now is terrible and deserves their poor ratings.

  2. I wasn’t ever thrilled with her reporting or anchoring but didn’t see her much. So I searched to see. Here is some of her work. This might explain it… http://vimeo.com/60205488. In any event, that’s the biz. Have to expect the revolving door.

      • Obviously there were technicial difficulties in one live shot and you never know what a producer is yelling in your ear while you are trying to talk. You can’t be 100% in every single live shot, but Donna is most of the time. She is a great reporter and anchor. She is very natural on camera and is a very hard worker. You can’t knock her work for a regime change and their decisions.

  3. Donna is a very good reporter, better Anchor if giving the opportunity, not her fault at all the new management wanted to go a different direction, she’ll diffidently bounce back in this business.

  4. I watched her in the morning before my move to Orlando, she’s was great, always clear and accurate, she should come to Orlando

  5. Im not sure who Danielle was watching, or why she is making excuses. Either you are good, and you can handle those types of situations in the field, or you aren’t. No offense to Donna, I’m sure she’s a very nice person, but she is in no way qualified to be working in a top 20 market. She was way out of her league. She fumbled through every singe live shot I ever saw her do. Best of luck to her though, as she moves forward in her journey.

  6. Alot of the Hispanic women reporters (on English-American tv stations) leave alot to be desired.
    Laura Rodriguez (channel 6) has a natural, genuine delivery. I like her alot.
    . channel 4 is terrible. Only one I think has the “on air” class is Lauren pastrana.
    I also like the fact that she pronounces her sir name with an English accent. She shows that she has respect and knows the difference.
    . Jackie nespral (Ch 6), the two morning anchors (Ch 4) and Jennifer Correa (Ch 10), need to be replaced. Yesterday.
    I think there’s some kind of political pressure that there has to be a Cuban on every station.
    Just get me the most competent journalist who has respect for her profession and IS professional, to report the news.
    I’m not one for politically motivated “moves” to push a particular cultural upon me.
    I like being American and DONT want to be converted to a culture not my own or that is anti American is genuineness’.
