    I was wondering wut happened to her, thats the second beautiful black anchor that has lefted, wut happened to sharita hutton? they come and go, no big send off like the other colors lol, wuts up with that!

  2. Amy says:

    I’m glad she’s gone, didn’t care for her anchoring at all.

  3. Sharon says:

    I agree with Amy, I did not care for her at all. Sharita Hutton left to be a stay at home mom

  4. Alan says:

    I liked her. She was good. I will miss her.

  5. Dana says:

    I didn’t care for her either so I am really glad she is gone. She wasn’t offensive in any way just way too smiley and didn’t have the sense of humor that the rest of the cast has.

  6. maria says:

    i agree with Amy also. It wasn’t anything she did she just didn’t fit in. I felt that way since day one can’t pinpoint it just didn’t fit in. If she did leave to be a stay at home mom good for her.

  7. Rodie says:

    I thought she did a wonderful job! I felt if she was another color we wouldn’t be having this conversaiton from the other viewers.

  8. viewer says:

    Good! She’s okay I guess, but she had terrible chemistry with the rest of the anchors. No sense of humor at all. She always seemed annoyed when they would try to joke with her. She would do well on a more serious news station.

    For all of you haters out there Stefan was the Best thing that happened to FOX ______ Channel 4. FYI, sometimes you have to GO to GROW. WAS IS IT IF YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL YOU DO NOT FIT IN. SHE DOES NOT HAVE TO FIT IN. SHE IS ABOVE THE BULL —-!!!! HATERS GET A LIFE!!!

    • monica says:

      Oh Please! She was a witch and didn’t get along with anyone. She had no sense of humor. You could see it in her face everyday she was on! Sharita Hutton left because she went home to be closer to her family. Mary Pulley is still there and I love her! She’s funny and beautiful and has a freakin sense of humor. Best thing that happened with FOX? Exaggerate much? Fox 4 isn’t #1 for nothing. They have personality and the public love them. Stefan wasn’t a team player…she even knew that because SHE put her 2 weeks in but they said no thanks! Actions speak louder than words! You get a life!

  10. LaWanda says:

    This is the second black female that just up and left fox 4 with no explaination. She did a great job her communication skills, hair and skin was flawless! She will get a better job elsewhere. She was too good for Fox 4 in all departments anyway.

  11. Marie says:

    Black, white, or purple, I’m glad to see her gone. She seemed too uptight.

  12. Jaison says:

    I thought she was cute, but agree that she didn’t seem to fit in. Black, white, purple makes no difference; the chemistry just wasn’t there.

    Is Sharita Hutton back? I saw here on air recently.

  13. Christian says:

    Who told you she quit? Stefan herself? That’s a total lie. My sources (which are undoubtedly closer than yours) tell me she was fired. And she didn’t fit in with the others because they couldn’t stand her selfishness and DRAMA! Viewers may miss the diva, but no one at the station does. Sorry, but that’s the truth.

  14. Terri says:

    Stefan Chase was the best thing that ever happened to fox 4. She was well versed she was beautiful and always was dressed to kill. Just a lot of haters and that’s just terrible. Stefan people just can’t stand to see the perfect package,which was what you were. God Bless you in whatever or wherever you go or decide to do.

  15. Ty says:

    Stefan didn’t fit into the Fox4 picture because she takes her journalism career seriously, unlike the others. Why does everything have to be a joke? I just don’t like comedy with my news, that’s what stand up is for. For god’s sake Fox4 journalism is a profession…FAIL

  16. Jennifer says:

    Sharita is back. :) Didn’t seem to be a good fit for Stefan

  17. John says:

    I think Stefan was wonderful a superstar she will do well in new Zealand

  18. Ted says:

    Well I also have VERY close sources that says she put in her 2 weeks notice and was asked to leave immediately. Stefan was very articulate and well educated and ur showed. Very true statement. She didn’t fit in. Like another commented, she takes her journalism serious where as SOME not all the cast don’t. Maybe some like the pompous attitudes of somebofvthe anchors and Stephan couldn’t tolerate the political antics that comes with EVERY job and moved on.

  19. Sha says:

    She was very articulate and did a great job. I think Loren was jealous of Stephan u could tell by some of the looks she gave her when they worked together. And when she was deemed 1 of the most beautiful people on kc that really didn’t sit well with Loren… Plain and simple Loren hater ass was part of the reason she’s no longer there. But fox4 don’t stop no show that’s why ur losing viewer’s

  20. tony t says:

    Bye bye birdface. Hated that witch nose bit@#. I never forgot how she sat there and smiled the day don passed. When everyone else was crying she sat there so smug and smerky it made me mad. I would change channels when she came on. So glad she is gone. She will not be missed here.

  21. R.Rundle says:

    Who gives a sh@#%.

  22. legraden says:

    I enjoyed her and thought she did a great job. Very clear and knew what was going on.
    She has been missed.

  23. rat fink says:

    She’s on ktla 5 news at 1pm now in Los Angeles. A lowly field reporter.

  24. FB Iger says:

    An LA update…nothing has changed about this chick since she left KC.
    Not very well liked by some of the field crews due to her primadonna, bossy atitude. She needs desperate help in her writing and air presence…flat as a pancake!

    This lady was actually a substitute teacher in one of my middle school classes in Georgia,years ago. She would get REALLY angry at people for no reason. It was a class that didnt have a legit teacher for awhile,so we went through quite a few subs. She only lasted a few months if I recall correctly. She made us watch some of her news reports a few times.
    Everybody complained that she was insane.

  26. Gill. says:

    just happened to be in L.A. area the from Thurs to Tues 04/09/13 and saw Ms Chase doing on the spot reporting for a station out there. I recognized her right away.

  27. Gill. says:

    I am not sure if it was a Fox station or not,but she is not anchoring at least to this point

  28. Jay says:

    Funny how most of haters are women. She was the best thing Fox4 had!

  29. Darell says:

    Stefan is in Atlanta now as morning co-anchor and doing traffic, She is very attractive and a welcomed change to this channel. It is CBS

  30. Sean Wells says:

    Notice all the hate comments coming from the ladies here.. and I use that term loosely. Stefan will continue to rise in this industry due to her professionalism and character.. not to mention her immense beauty. Much love Stefan.. Stay On Your path.

  31. Bill says:

    She’s still in Atlanta. Have to say, big step up from K.C., lol. I had a chance to move there, my wife was in the aviation industry, and I flat out refused. Anyway, she seems at home. But man, she’s got one of those noses that makes me wonder if she is part Native American Indian. The CBS 46 channel news team I’d say is tied with the local NBC 11 news team for last place in ratings. The ABC 2 and Fox 5 news teams here seem to be the most popular. The CBS and NBC affiliates have gone the hottie route to try and increase ratings. The Fox and ABC affiliates have older, trusted anchors. I don’t see what people are complaining about. She just seems like the normal acting anchor. Her co-anchor, Jennifer Valdez, that does the weather though comes across as a ditz.

  32. OOH LALA
    Saw her doing anchor job and didn’t pay much attention until I saw her standing up in a side profile. Ooh lala. The girl is cut. Watch it just to see her turn to the side and jiggle.
    Been a fan ever since.
    I can get the news anywhere -;)

  33. Ms Wells says:

    I was wondering what happened to her. I really liked her. I am sorry she is gone. As I looks at the comments it seems to be a lot of negative comments. I hope you never get fired from a job. You will know how it feels. You are nothing but haters. God bless you Stefan Chase you will rise.
