    UPDATE
    Najahe just mentioned on Facebook that she officially started at News 2 in Nashville, TN. Just a minor update.

      Glad to see she follows this site. Until we posted the story of her departure she had not updated her blog in weeks.

      A SPECIAL PERSON
      Najahe is a very special person. Very much enjoyed knowing her. She will be missed. I think everyone would agree that she treated everyone like a million bucks. That’s something that we don’t see a lot of in this business.

    FINE JOB
    Sorry to see her go. She did a fine job as a reporter and weekend anchor.

    VERY FAKE
    Maybe I’m in the minority, but I’m glad to see her go. Her personality was very grating, she struck me as very fake.

    GLAD TO SEE HER GONE
    Another one here glad to see her gone. She did have a phoney air about her. A few others at KSHB will have to leave before I change the channel back to them however.

    UNFORTUNATE REMARKS
    It is unfortunate to see the above remarks in relation to someone of such high caliber as Najahe – Najahe is one of the kinder people I know in KC and her integrity is exceptional. “Fake” is a word used generally by the underachieving folk I believe, and I’ve been around long enough to know what fake is and what envy is too.

    SAD
    I too am sad to see her leave. She was a breath of fresh air on the weekend mornings.

    ON-AIR PERSONALITIES
    While I can see the “fake” complaints, nearly all…if not all…TV personalities are just that…on air personalities. They act different on TV. Don Harman, anyone? Was he fake because he didn’t show his depressed side when he did the news? They have a job to do. Nearly all of them on TV are not going to be how they are in real life.

    I, for one, found her to be a nice change of pace for the weekend broadcasts. But if she’s getting more air time in TN and it’s a better position for her, then it is what it is and I am happy for her.

    TOO BAD…
    to bad she didnt stay and lesack leave with his dam dogs if he was a woman he would have been gone long ago

    WEATHER DOG FAN
    I, for one, like the “weather dogs.” And, seeing as quite a bit of the population consists of dog lovers, I think KSHB is smart to keep them around. They are a nice tradition. Besides, they are just on the news for maybe less than a minute at the end of his forecast. There’s far more worse things on the news (not just KSHB) that really need to be addressed that take up much more air time.

    REPORTER TURNOVER
    Sorry to see here depart for sure.

    Just what is going on in this town ? No station can keep reporters, new ones every week, then when you get to know them, they are suddenly gone ? Makes no sense.

    I just want KSHB to explain to viewers that if you WIN the St,Judes Dream Home, it will likely become a nightmare. It is really a scam. You have to pay TAXES on the home UP FRONT, before you can take pocession. On a 500K+ home would come in around $150-$175K, just in taxes. So you would need a mortage just for the taxes, with payments in the thousands, which likely 90% cannot pay.

    St.Judes gets the money, then they take procession after winner cannot pay taxes and house is sold on open market, and sold for list, thus they make twice the money. But the “winner” likely never spends a day in the home.

    While a GREAT CAUSE, SHAME on you KSHB for making people out there in KC, “think” for only $100.00, they could really get the “dream” home, then watch it turn into a nightmare, with TAXES, You should pull this down as it is not as it seems, NO DOUBT !!

    SHAME ON KSHB !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. WHY STOP WITH KSHB says:

    DEFENSE OF ST. JUDE
    WHY NOT KNOCK ALL 31 SCAMS HOUSES…YOU KNOW WHY BECAUSE ST JUDE DOES SO MUCH GOOD THAT THE BAD WILL NOT SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY…

    THINK ABOUT THE THOUSANDS OF FAMILIES EVERY YEAR THAT ST. JUDE HELPS @ NO CHARGE…WEIGH THAT AGAINST THE FACT THAT SOME PERSON THAT HAS THE $100 FOR A TICKET & CAN’T PAY THE TAXES IS GOING TO WIN VS THE WEALTHIER PEOPLE THAT BUY 10-100 TICKETS JUST TO HELP OUT ST. JUDE & IF THEY WIN WHICH IS MORE LIKELY TO HAPPEN, WILL EITHER SELL IT OR GIVE IT TO A CHARITY TO RAFFLE OFF @ A LOWER VALUE…

    THE GOOD OUT WEIGHS THE BAD HERE…SO SORRY YOU CAN’T SEE THAT…& I FOR 1 CAN’T EVEN AFFORD THE PRICE OF 1 TICKET BUT IF I COULD I WOULD & IF I WON I WOULD NOT WANT TO KEEP IT BUT TO PASS IT ON TO DO SOME GOOD IN THE LOCAL AREA…

    AS FOR NAJAHE SHERMAN I WILL MISS HER SHE WAS ALWAYS A BRIGHT & SHINY FACE WITH A DAZZLING SMILE AS WELL…GOODLUCK NAJAHE NOT ALL PEOPLE HERE ARE BUBBA JOE BOB HICKS!!!

    Thank God, she was a disaster. Chirpy anchors make my teeth itch and that pasted on smile just drove me crazy. Too bad JiaoJiao didn’t leave with her. I like George Waldenberger. I liked Curtis Jay. KSHB is a terrible news station that is not improving one bit.

    KSHB?
    Not what is going on with this town….what is going on with KSHB !??
    I see the same ppl staying on at the other stations, but KSHB…..
    here’s the list..all gone

    Jeremy Nelson
    George Waldenburger
    Jajahe Sherman
    Elizabeth Alex
    Curtis Jay
    Lance Veeser

    ALL gone this year, except for Jeremy, who only lasted (5) ? years.
    And NOW Brett Anthony is leaving !

    I would say the problem is with KSHB…not the city.
