    She’s much nicer to look at than that picture would have you believe.

    She’s a hottie. NOW i’ll watch! No offense, guys, but a hot Wildcat-lovin lady is a LOT more entertaining than a bunch of guys sitting around shooting the breeze.

    Her catch phrase should be a Joe Dean rip-off ” It’s G-String music in Lexington, K-Y”

    Huge HUGE WTF on this one. How the F did Radio Ron not win this thing?

    BS! Radio Ron had this thing sewn up.

    Why not let people know their votes did count Matt? By acting like they did everyone now knows you as part yellow. Poor decision on your part.

    Who knows if KSTV will even be on the air after Time Warner takes over Insight. Just hate that Chip Cosby may have jumped the LHL ship for nothing…

    Can’t you jerks just be happy!? When I saw the movie, Emily Rose died after the exorcism. Now, it looks like she made it, YAY!!!!

    She’s okay. Good poise on tv but it felt like she was fed the facts so to speak. But let’s get real, she won because of who she knows…

    I want to take this opportunity to congratulate Leslie. The KSTV casting call was a rather arduous and protracted process, but I found it to be a FUN and unique journey. I sincerely thank all of you KSR readers who voted for me and supported me with your complimentary (and humorous) comments.
    I also thank Matt, Beisner, Will and the entire KSTV & KSR crew for their courtesy through-out the audition process.
    I’ll always be a BIG BLUE FAN to my dying day (which may not be too far off :-)) You have’nt heard the last from RadioRon!

    Ummm why are you running IU football ads on this site?

    Good choice for TV though, she’s already less awkward than Perin.

    KSR is catching on! You must be following my rules for hiring secretaries: 1. Must be hot, 2. Be able to answer the phone (optional, it can be taught) 3. Be able to speak intelligently about a subject (ANY subject).

    You, my friends, have hired the trifecta. Bravo.

    Leslie was phe-nomenal and is a phe-nomenal person. Maybe it’s her ties to DanceBlue <–FTK or her involvement on campus (AGD), but she had the chops to be successful and the support group to get there. Leslie will do great.
