Alexandra Steele No Longer with TWC
« on: October 02, 2010, 03:04:49 AM »
I have it on good authority from sources at The Weather Channel that Alexandra Steele is no longer appearing on The Weather Channel. Very little information is being released internally but it appears legal action is likely by both parties.

I once told someone on this forum that I disagreed that Alex was likely laid off. I was wrong, therefore I take it back.

This is indeed devastating. I know many of you guys are huge fans of Alexandra, including Victor and Tiffany. She was also one of my favorites. I wish her all the best in what comes to her.


Alexandra, you will be missed by all of us.  :cry3:

I am about 99% sure of this. Waiting on final verification from a source.

The network knows best because they know "everyone loves blondes with big boobs." :rolleyes:

Those bastards, they didn't even bother saying anything about it, They just let Alex disappear out of nowhere.  <_< What's even worse is they put so much emphasis into the whole "Cantore and Steele" duo thing. (sighs) Oh well I will miss her. :itsok:

I bet you that internally, the whole "Cantore and Steele" thing (which I loved btw) was one of those "last chance" things and did the classic "not renewing the contract" deals.

What the  :censored:? Every one on here, about a 1,000 users, should e-mail/facebook/twitter, etc and demand Keneely, Steele... back on TWC. Also, ask your friends and family to do that, too. NBC/TWC should listen to a few thousand of their viewers!

DEAR TWC,
I WOULD LIKE ALL OF THE FOLLOWING OCMs TO BE BACK ON TWC....BILL KENEELY, ALEXANDRA STEELE, BETTY DAVIS, AND ALL OF THE OTHER GREAT OCMs THAT YOU HAVE "LET GO" AND REPLACED WITH THESE NEW OCMs THAT HAVE NO EXPERIENCE WITH TWC. COPY AND PASTE THIS IF YOU AGREE!

:D

:facepalm: <<this seems to be the emotion fo this type of situation..
You're waisting your time!  How many times does it have to be said;  They are gone for good.  No amount of e-mails complaining about TWC changing in general is not going to change a thing. 

I agree with Jesse, it seems the network wants the blondes with a body, or at least a younger croud.  While I have no problem with that (as long as they know their weather), it's sad to see these knowledgable, personable meteorologists leave the network.  While I was not a fan of Alexandra, at all, it is still sad to see her 'let go,' I don't wish that upon anyone.

I really don't think we should speculate who's next to go. :no:  In some way, I think that is disrespectful to that OCM.

In the words of wxmediafan, it's not gonna work.

I hate people with big boobs, so TWC is taking the wrong route. But don't let that ruin your life...

No offense, but what does her on air proposal have to do with her chances of not having her contract renewed? Both of them would be at the same risk. I only said Kim as a joke because she had blond hair up until the last year and half.
