  1. Why doesn’t Hollie EVER give the present temp.during her morning weather report? How hard can it be to let us know what the temp is outside….

  2. I am glad that Hollie has been off the air lately. I enjoy Dave and Betsy SO MUCH MORE. Why don’t you give her an early retirement and let her go? All she cares about is her clothes. I am sure that she doesn’t buy them. She must be in a deal with a clothing store where she wears them and then the store sells them used. Whatever, I can’t stand her. When she gets back I will be watching Channel 8 news and the weather!

  3. I too don’t like those women newscasters who wear short-sleeved summer dresses…I call them sausage case dresses. Whatever happened to class? Suits and blazers are so much more respectable. The trend needs to end.

  4. Holly is very pretty. She does not need all that jewelry she wears. She is petite, and the jewelry overwhelms her. My mother always said you should put on your jewelry, and then, take off one piece. (or maybe two…) Check out the girls on the Today Show.

  5. Please stop referring to the work week as Monday through Friday. That’s mamby pamby land for School children. Who would think in today’s world we work Monday through Friday with weekends off?

  6. What ever happened to the woman in the suit.
    The men have to wear suits, but the ladies (?) wear street dresses and they do not look professional!!
    Im not the only one with this opinion, there are many others!
    Pass it around!!

  7. Betsy, I so enjoy watching you. I love seeing what you’re wearing. How you’re wearing your hair & of course the weather. I talk about you like you’re my personal friend. Everyone gets a kick out of it! You go girl!!

  8. Love Holly on air, but I do NOT like the new graphics for the weather forecast. it is so hard to read! The white numbers/letters are hard to see, the 7 day forecast is way too small and the symbols (rain, snow, etc. ) are too small. There is too much white in the whole thing. Also, during the regular news, the time/temperature in the bottom right-hand corner are impossible to see they are so small. Please go back to the former graphics with colors and sizes we could read. I looked at the WKYC website and couldn’t find a way to contact the station with my comments, even the website has changed.

    I watch every weekday morning and depend on the time graphic to keep me on schedule, I can’t see it. What is with the beeps and bongs with the new graphics? Your morning show is my favorite seven days a week, please revisit the changes. Thank you.

    Holy is fun and energetic. Love her dresses. Also always wanted to ask her about her wardrobe. How about fashion some appropriate weather matching outfits. In the winter time like to see some fashionable and professional winter outfits, not just sleeveless party type dresses. I mean it in nice way. Good luck always, Holly.
