  1. Translation: SB wanted 22222 much $$$$

  2. Will EVT take the role on a permanent basis? I liked Susan, and thought she did a nice job. How secure is Chris May? I also think he does a nice job.

  3. Here we go again. Another turnover of a solid new personnel at CBS3. That’s the big problem with CBS 3. They need to learn a lesson from the ABC O&O stations when it comes to it news staff. Must admit that I am a loyal viewer of CBS 3 news for decade.

  4. Susan did a good job. Maybe she will also end up on Fox29 news.

  5. My understanding is that they wanted to cut her salary. A lot.

  6. Isn’t it weird they got rid of Susan Barnett and replaced her with Jessica Dean who looks like Susan and sounds just like her?
