What’s going on with Channel 25’s Living Oklahoma???

Last week, we alerted the The Lost Ogle viewing audience to some funny clips of an obviously out-of-it Meg Alexander slurring and stumbling her way through interview segments on the Fox 25 pay-to-play morning show Living Oklahoma.

Minutes after our post went live, Fox 25 quickly removed the videos from their website, but not before we were able to capture and put them on YouTube.

Check them out:

The following day, Meg Alexander was noticeably absent from the show. Also, the following job listing was brought to our attention by Steve Lackemeyer’s twitter BFF – Judge Radar:

Well, I guess it’s safe to assume that Meg is no longer with Channel 25 and they’re looking for her replacement. You can’t show up to work in that condition and expect to keep your job, right?

Well, maybe you can.

According to the Ogle Mole Network, Meg was placed on leave by the channel, which I guess would explain why her bio is still live and online.

However, her co-host on the show – cruise ship comedian turned morning show host Mitch English –apparently got the axe. Check out this email that KOKH Fox 25 General Manager Bill Lanesey sent to staff yesterday morning:

That’s weird. Your co-host shows up to work like she spent the night dancing on the bar at Coyote Ugly, and you’re the one who gets canned a couple of days later? Did Mitch put vodka in Meg’s Valentine’s flowers or something?

Right now, I don’t think anyone knows for sure. The Ogle Mole Network is a bit baffled by the developments, and the only clue Mitch has given is this weird Instagram photo from last night:


Chickens don’t have sweat glands? Yeah, I have no clue either.

With Mitch looking for a new job and Meg on leave, hosting duties for Living Oklahoma have now fallen on meteorologist Marcy Novak and OKC Thunder arena emcee Malcolm Tubbs. They’re doing a nice, sober job at sticking to the script and promoting the services of Living Oklahoma’s paid news clients:

Anyway, we’d like to wish Mitch and Meg the best of luck getting their lives back in order. If there are any updates to this story, we’ll post them below. Or maybe we won’t. I feel like we’ve spent more time writing about the show than people actually spend watching the show.

  1. He called out her drinking as unprofessional and in doing so got fired.

    But he didn’t care.

    That’s the “Chickens don’t have sweat glands” basic meaning.

    Not scared of the consequences.

  2. Had to see the clips they deleted thanks for that:)) And that is the most I have ever seen of that show…

  3. Mitch is such a goober!! Glad he’s gone!! He always acted like he was a hottie. Lol
    I don’t know about Meg as I quit watching 25’s news well over a year ago as Mitch was do overbearing!

  4. I was watching the Show when this all happened and noted that she sure sounds like Linda “Soundtrack” and with that reminder I changed channels and haven”t been back since

  5. She always acts this way. This is why she was fired at channel 4.

  6. So the names of the people on this show are Mitch, Meg, Marcy, and Malcolm? Was this by design? Can only people with a name starting with “M” apply?

  7. Well, maybe Mitch can find a gig as a morning show host on a very low-power radio station in the Panhandle.

  8. Sad when you stop to think about it, but…..when we are talking about them, we are not talking about you.

  9. “I recently did a story on a 4H gentleman … er, high schooler, who does goats. He taught them… er, I mean, he blows them dry…”

    Maybe she is just plain dumb.

  10. I stop watching when every other word out of their mouth is….. “Got your back” its stupid and sounds ridiculous. They day it 15 times and more in a 30 broadcast.

    1. Right. 1996 called. They want their phrase back.

  11. Ha! She offered to share her vodka with flowers!!! I’d venture a guess and say she has been drinking before the show, her hair is also a mess as well.

  12. If Mitch is gone, she deserves to be gone, too!! He was right in saying she was unprofessional!

  13. I never knew that this was a thing! I shared your article at my office this morning and was shocked to find out that people have been watching this dumpster fire burn for a REALLY long time! We decided collectively that honestly, Sinclair should just run with it and make it a weird local version of Drunk History.

  14. Cut her some slack she’s got like 14 kids doesn’t she? Seems like she was perpetually pregnant from like 1988 to 2002.

    1. Richard, that’s an astute observation. LMAO.

  15. Let’s all make fun of the sad woman, and try to get our friends to do it too! Yeah!

    1. Indeed a sad commentary. The most important item in the lives of some people is never missing an opportunity to ridicule those who are in need of help and understanding.
      The “Oklahoma Standard” coupled with “thoughts and prayers” and a dose of “Cristian Values.” Is this a great state or what?

      1. Oops…”Christian”.

  16. It’s actually a very clever marketing plan by Sinclair. It’s all an act, the public loves to watch train wrecks, and while that show is a train wreck to begin with, if you add the twist that the anchor is drunk, you have a ratings hit. Who wouldn’t want to watch? Who knows what she will do?

    Now you have some ratings on a show that before this twist had ratings preceded by a decimal point. Interestingly enough this is occurring during “sweeps week” or the ratings period. Rather than running consumer related stories, or strippers or something else controversial, make the viewer think the host will do something really, really outlandish.

    Have to wonder if Sinclair is trying this in another market also?

    Naw, don’t think they are that smart, or are they?

    1. Donald Trump is president. Bruce Jenner was named Woman of the Year. Latest Super Bowl winning is in his 40s. Keith Richards is still alive. Disney owns Star Wars. You can download a gun and make as many as you want with a printer. You can spray paint a screen door and make a boat out of it. Oklahoma now sells weed. Japan has sex robots. Kids as young as 5 have cell phones.

      Is anything shocking these days?

      1. Vegan pizza still shocks

  17. Another shit show for Richardson Homes.

  18. Doesn’t seem like Meg has been the same since reporting on the May 20 Moore tornado. Had to be tough seeing some of that, hopefully she gets help.

  19. This is going into my trophy room.

  20. Fox 25 has a stick up their Ass!!!!! The only reason people watch that show is because they were happy , funny and made a great team. It’s ok for Hoda and Kathy to drink wine and have the boring ass shit no one wants to listen to or care about . They have gone downhill since they fired The Newscaster Speno. They may as well do away with the show , no one wants to see a pregnant women and a giggler on there . I’m a stay at home mom , I know there are others that like common people like us. A little Kaliyah in our coffee and some funny entertainment. What are you gonna do fire Malcom next 😡FOX SUCKS THAT IS ALL YOU HAD GOING FOR YOU. I hope they take your ass off the air. BORING ASS LOSERS NOW YOUR IN THE SAME LEAGUE AS KELLY RIPA show😂🤣ratings just just dropped like the temp yesterday !

  21. Lance West as new host? Would that even be possible? #bringbacklance

  22. Really going to miss both of them, Mitch got the short end and I think he was collateral damage. I watch the show every day, I noticed Meg did this a couple other times on air. Meg and Mitch had a chemistry.
    Marcy and Malcolm are doing great too. They are saving “the brand”. Good luck to Marcy and Malcolm. The best of luck to Meg and Mitch also.
    I hope Meg gets some help, to have a public melt down and loose a great job like this, what a way to go.

  23. Chardonnay in your coffee mug there, Meg?

  24. I stopped watching the show some months back, but I really don’t see much difference in the way Meg talked and acted that day as opposed to any other day. “Loopy” has always been her trademark.
