That's a sad article.  Marny Stanier was always one of my favorites.

This is stupid, seriously. They're kicking out the good-o classic ones just so they can make room for the "hot" weatherwomen. What a great way to attract perverts. :rolleyes: (not to offend anyone).

It is the nature of the career in these times.

This whole fiasco is happening throughout the news world (local/regional but with no lawsuits such as big as this if there is any confirmed) so i don't really seem that surprised they made a move like this <_<

Anything to attract viewership (younger & attractive meteorologist) to younger anchors/reporters/sportscasters the game is $$$ thats what this day in age of media boils down to.
I hate to say it but you're right. When people tune into tv (myself included), they'd rather see a smoking, hot, young girl rather than a old, saggy, wrinkly woman (not that Alex was any of those things). It's just the facts. Younger personalities recruits younger viewers, which boosts ad sales. Quite sad, but true.

I think the bottom line is Alex was a great OCM. I wasn't a huge fan of her during her stunt on YWT, but once she returned from maternity leave and moved to the evening hours, she really grew on me. Her and Jim were the perfect pair, the always worked well together. I fail to see how TWC can justify breaking up a good pair of OCMs for a younger, less personable OCM like Egger. :dunno:

The way Martin updated that website home page up makes me think harder about Alex.
It's just so depressing looking at how popular this story is getting by the weeks on here.....DANG!!!

I can't believe this thread is still going (and over 10 pages long)! Sure, she was attractive in that "dude, you mom's hot" kind of way, but wow! You'd think they fired Megan Fox! :dunno:

Relax! I'm sure they'll hire a new unprofessional, personality-deprived "hotty" for you all to oggle at. :thumbsup:

Well if this is the true reason why she no longer appears on TWC, I will be severely disappoint.

I just hope we could get more info on Alex's situation. I'm glad I recorded a TWC clip with her in it. I'll see if I can upload it today.

Can't wait to see it

I wonder about how things are going with her now, since all of this took place.

* Martin finishes sweeping

I took the liberty of cleaning some of the off topic discussions so that members would be more comfortable with keeping this topic active! I want to clarify a few things and make some comments.

In early October it was brought to my attention that Alexandra Steele had most likely been let go. This was also the belief of several of my sources/friends who are familiar with the situation at The Weather Channel. I would like to point out that I would NOT make a topic unless I believed the information I received was factual and accurate. Over time the story has changed a little bit.


Here are the facts:
Alexandra is NOT on vacation leave
Alexandra is NOT on medical leave
Alexandra is NOT currently working at The Weather Channel (meaning on air, behind the scenes, etc)
Alexandra IS in some dispute with The Weather Channel

If you do not wish to discuss in speculation please refrain from posting in this topic. If you wish to dispute my facts, please contact me. Thanks everyone :)

As a reminder to everyone, please stay on topic here and in other TWC threads.  Save the random funny stuff for the other parts of the forum.  I will not hesitate again to freeze a topic by locking it if I continue to see more distasteful behavior, and there will be consequences if it happens again.  Alexandra is facing a very serious ordeal right now, and we ought to be more respectful for her sake as we do not know everything that will happen soon.  Thank you!

My YouTube rant about this whole situation, please excuse the crappy audio quality.

Why in the world would The Weather Channel fire Alexandra Steele?

Mike Bettes is FOREVER!
I miss you,ThunderFever on YouTube. You will be sorely missed,and many Ryan Farish songs in your honour.

Whatever kind of dispute she's in with TWC, I hope and pray that she comes out of it safely and that nothing bad happens to her.

Here is an interesting article about Alexandra's brother.  It also reveals her real name.  Look under "personal life".  Alexandra's not her first name, and Warsh IS her last name.
