    I vote for Javacia N. Harris of Velocity. She is an excellent writer who is also very active in the community. She is not one to blow her own horn, but she is making an impact with her stories and her column.

    You guys must have made a mistake. Fenton can’t be on that list, can she?

  • 3 Rafe // Mar 2, 2009 at 12:34 pm

    Rachel Platt all the way. She’s smart, nice professional and well prepared.

    It has to be Candyce Clifft. She is very very good at what she does, smart and professional. She is very community minded and a special Mom! Most importantly she has to sit on the set for 4 hours with Barry Bernson and listen to the drivel spewed by their weather idiot. The last sentence alone wins her this prize hands down.

    I would like to go off the board and vote for Janelle MacDonald. She is very professional, articulate pleasant to watch.

  • 6 klaus // Mar 2, 2009 at 1:31 pm

    “and” pleasant to watch.

  • 7 hmmm.... // Mar 2, 2009 at 2:19 pm

    I’d have to say Lynda Lambert. Their morning show is awesome and she’s very much into giving back to the community!

  • 8 jake // Mar 2, 2009 at 2:25 pm

    No clue why Rick is afraid to say it, but Francene is our pick.

  • 9 Michael // Mar 2, 2009 at 2:31 pm

    I agree with klaus…not to mention she looks great in a sweater!

  • 10 Cody // Mar 2, 2009 at 2:32 pm

    I would say Charla Young. She has gotten nearly $4 million worth of results for the community. That woman is the Troubleshooter… She freakin rocks.

    Julie Tam and Her Blue Glove of Journalismism.

    Candyce Clifft will be one of the most enduring, versatile media players in this town. There is no question to her talent, integrity or sense of humor. And she’s a sports chick! She far outshines the other “personalities” on in Louisville media.

  • 13 Mark Bacon // Mar 2, 2009 at 4:57 pm

    Julie Kredens, WFPL’s State of Affairs.

  • 14 KYGuy // Mar 2, 2009 at 6:17 pm

    The list is much too short. I’m with Mark Bacon, Julie Kredens. If I have to stay on the list, for pure service to the community, Charla Young.

  • 15 Jeff // Mar 2, 2009 at 8:21 pm

    Does the category of “Media” include corporate communications? If so, I give a nod to Kerri Richardson. She speaks well extemporaneously, prounounces all of the words correctly and seems to know what she’s talking about. I like on on WHAS and she’s doing ok w/Metro Gov’t.

  • 16 Crutnacker // Mar 2, 2009 at 8:27 pm

    Kerri always looks like she’s tired of dealing with idiots.

    I’d go with Janelle, if only because she seems more at ease anchoring the news by herself than many others do in a team. Candyce and Rachel also.

    I don’t understand your undying love for Francine. And I find some of Charla Young’s reporting to be lacking.

  • 17 Bailey'sMind // Mar 2, 2009 at 10:52 pm

    Lori Lyle…She is, hands down, the most beautiful local celeb that we have…

  • 18 emily // Mar 2, 2009 at 11:07 pm

    ugh! why why why is angie fenton on that list?!!?

  • 19 bigdaddy // Mar 3, 2009 at 7:55 am

    Janelle MacDonald is the hottest on TV in town. She is why men die in battle

  • 20 bild // Mar 3, 2009 at 9:39 am

    Julie Kredens of WFPL hands down. The very best, the brightest and most talented of the whole bunch.

  • 21 RICHB // Mar 3, 2009 at 10:22 am

    Francine is Rush with a vagina. Love her disrespect calling our President Bam. The
    unprofessionalism calling people babe and honey
    and rarely taking an opposing quest views without
    hanging up.

  • 22 Janelle // Mar 3, 2009 at 11:14 am

    Julie Kredens, WFPL. Engaging, curious, easy on the ears. She’s an intelligent woman who elevates the discourse in Louisville.

  • 23 Rhonda Vollmer // Mar 3, 2009 at 3:00 pm

    Tamara Ikenberg should totallybeon that list.
    Who’s with me??

  • 24 bigdaddy // Mar 4, 2009 at 9:01 am

    Not me Rhonda…Ikenberg inserts way too many of her unfunny comments and secret obsessions that no one cares to read into her columns. Her obession with the program no one watches- Project Runway- should be left to an internet blog for her and her pals

  • 25 Rhonda Vollmer // Mar 4, 2009 at 12:27 pm

    Tamara Ikenberg is totally funny and TONs of people watch Project Runway
