3x DUI News Anchor Tapped To Replace Prime Time Morning News Anchor Gloria Neal At WGCL CBS News Station In Atlanta, GA…
Bring Gloria Neal Back To Morning News In ATL; Do Not Watch CBS #BringGloBack #NOCBS46ATL
DO NOT WATCH CBS46 Atlanta (PLEASE SHARE):
The people of Atlanta, Georgia has taken a stand against CBS46 News Atlanta (owned by Meredith) that has terminated over a dozen news reporters and anchors within the last two years. This has an impact on our economy, individuals mental stability, hardship for families, and many other negative things that follows after one loses a job.
The most recent injustice at CBS46 with news anchor Gloria Neal is unacceptable and should be the last. While Gloria is limited in sharing the details of her egregious situation at CBS46, she has been courageous enough to say, “I have been forced to resign.” We trusted Gloria as our daily morning news source and welcomed her into our homes daily through the television via CBS46 News in Atlanta. Due to that experience, she has garnered creditability with the citizens of the metro Atlanta area. Therefore, we trust her judgement that disparaging things took place to create an environment where it was no longer conducive for her to work. Gloria has been committed throughout her career to helping people and communities rise for good and we must rise for her.
Amanda Davis was recently tapped last week to become the morning news anchor for WGCL-CBS affiliate in Atlanta, Georgia to replace the recent new hire Gloria Neal from Denver, Colorado. Neal has over twenty years of uninterrupted service at one station prior to her arrival to Atlanta in 2015. According to her Facebook account, Neal says “I was forced to resign by the executives at CBS 46” without providing any details. However, she did allude to legal actions that are in place. Neal had a four-year contract with the station that abruptly ended. It is unclear if this arrest will impact Davis start as the morning news anchor that is scheduled to begin January 2, 2017.
Mid-afternoon on Tuesday December 13, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia, cops arrested veteran news anchor Amanda Davis. Davis, 60, was driving with suspended license plates and driver’s license in the Cobb County area near Cumberland Mall. This latest arrest is the most recent on the heels of multiple DUI charges creating concern and outrage throughout the Atlanta community. Officers previously arrested Davis for three DUIs since 1991. The most recent arrest was in June 2015.
Davis has been a prominent face on Atlanta TV having worked for WAGA-TV for nearly 30 years and retiring six months after a DUI arrest in 2013. She was perhaps best known for her popular TV segment “Wednesday’s Child,” which helped recruit adoptive families. In 2015, Davis was arrested in Cobb County for DUI again on the same day a TV commentary she had recorded was set to air.
CBS 46, Meredith Media, and Mark Pimentel, General Manager, have attempted to strip Gloria of her pride by taking her off the air after 20 plus uninterrupted years in the business (20 years in one market of Denver, Colorado). They devalued her by not amicably bringing resolution to her concerns. Moreover, they abandoned her after bringing her across the country from Denver, Colorado to Atlanta, GA, thus putting her in a vulnerable position. Colorado is what she knew as home with scores of friends, dozens of loved ones, and thousands of dedicated viewers were all left behind in an effort to rebuild CBS46 in Atlanta.
This is not an attack on anyone directly employed at CBS46 (exception of decision making executives). An injustice to Gloria is an injustice to us all. They have done it to others and they will continue to do it to others unless we take a stand. We the people of Atlanta, GA have completely lost our trust in CBS46 News that finds individuals so disposable as they have become known as a revolving door. Spitting media professionals out without any regard for their livelihood or the sacrifices they made to grace the station with their talents is reprehensible .
It’s time that WE stand up to CBS46 and let them know that we the people of Atlanta, Georgia will no longer accept nor tolerate injustices in the newsroom. Nor will we allow strangers in our home to receive our daily news source via the television with CBS46. We hold media executives as protectors of our first-rate professional journalists as Gloria Neal, and not violators of their rights. How can you report the news, but become the news? #THEBIGGESTOXYMORAN
We the people of Atlanta, GA deserve:
1) Trusted and familiar faces in our home via CBS46; as we had in Glo
2) As a world class city we deserve first-rate journalists; as we had in Glo
3) Journalists with integrity and professionalism; as we had in Glo
4) Journalists that are engaging and active in the community; as we had in Glo
5) Our news stations to be fair in their hiring and termination practices
Gloria has been the voice for the voiceless here in Atlanta and since she is now the voiceless, due to legal constraints regarding her employment at CBS46, we the people want to be her voice as concerned citizens. Will you join US in turning the channel from CBS46? There are more reliable news sources who fosters positive work environments for its employees and allow their talent to become a familiar face in our homes through longevity, such as WSB 2, Fox 5, and NBC 11. #TURNTHECHANNEL #GLORIANEAL #TURNTHECHANNELFORGLO #BRINGGLOBACK #WEMISSGLO #DONOTWATCH46 #NOCBS46ATL
