COVID or no COVID, I cannot comprehend the decision by the owners of News Channel 9 to let go Erin Thomas.
I watch that show every morning and (when I can) at 6 p.m. She is outstanding at her job and very versatile doing weather, traffic, news or whatever. Totally at ease, smiling, smart, friendly and professional. What do they want?
I think the entire crew is great, including the other two let go, Staley and Madewell. I feel for them all as they must be wondering what must I do to keep my job?
I hope all three quickly land other jobs with companies that appreciate them for the professionals they are.

So long to three icons in the Chattanooga Sports and Weather networks. Dave and John go back a long way and they gave abundant coverage to High School sports in this area. They mentioned High School players and coaches and gave credit where credit was due. Thanks for all the memories and I wish you the best.
As for Erin Thomas, she was also great. I never heard her blabber on about the weather and temperature in the Northern states. She gave the local weather. She too will be missed.
Friday nights will never be the same, Dave and John. you will be missed.
The station lost one viewer.
