Meg Alexander is a serious journalist…

The screen shot below was taken from the “People” page at KFOR.com.  Take a look at it and see if you can figure out what’s different.

If you were able to determine that Meg Alexander has a different style photograph than everyone else and a red box with the word “photo” in it by her name, then your are an observant individual.  That being said, noticing the new picture and obtrusive red box is kind of easy, but determining why they did it is a little bit more tricky.  My guess is that KFOR wants to make Meg Alexander look like a serious journalist.  And when you take compare her old picture with the new one, you can’t blame them:

Yeah…it’s probably good that KFOR is making Meg Alexander look more serious, but aren’t they going a bit overboard?  It’s kind of like they’ve took a Kindergarten teacher and made her a high school principal.  As one who spent too many days in the assistant principals office, I find this a bit disturbing.

Maybe instead of the principal look, KFOR should make Meg look like the 10th grade English teacher…preferably the same one who coached pom.  That would be smart, because then they’d have an excuse to get Joleen Chaney and Bobbie Miller to dress up like the 10th grade English teachers too, take pictures of them, and then post them all in a sweeps week spectacular.  And to make it all legitimate, they could probably have them sponsor DECA.  Clark Matthews loves DECA.

  2. why can’t Meg Alexander look like a serious journalist? she does work for a major network in a major city, last time i checked.

  3. oklafornia_girl, you obviously don’t know Meg Alexander. Serious journalism and her… never the twain shall meet. Or something like that.

    At least she’s trying to get that old lady neck thing working… that will make her look like a serious journalist!

  4. I don’t know, I think the change is good. She must be trying to move up TLO’s local media list.

  5. You guys really lend too much attention to women’s necks. Also keep in mind they may read this stuff.

    I was in DECA, we sold Otis Spunkmeyer cookies during social hour on Fridays.

  6. Lauren Richardson, Amy McRee & Meg Alexander should all go on an episode of Jeopardy.

    Seriously, Meg is the smartest of the 3. Imagine having a conversation with Amy McRee about essentialism.

  7. Bosley: “we sold Otis Spunkmeyer cookies during social hour.”

    He said spunkmeyer.

    Nermel, I would say that you had set the bar for performance pretty low, but having been drinking with Meg, she is wicked smart and a blast to throw back with, especially after knocking over a liquor store.

    I asked Amy about essentialism, and she indicated that minimal accessories are critically important to any outfit. Then she directed further questions to her personal shopper, Chad Alexamder.

  8. Meg Alexander is hot. No two ways about it. And whoever said she is smart is correct. That’s part of what makes her hot. (It doesn’t, however, explain why so much of her journalism is lame.)

  9. why can’t Meg Alexander look like a serious journalist? she does work for a major network in a major city, last time i checked.

    You’ve obviously confused Ken and Barbie fluff for journalism.
