Tonight more of your thoughts on what we [TV News] do well and could do better.

Billy hates: "…an important story being put off until a later newscast so you watch it then."

Steve complains: "Stations add their opinions. The time for opinions is ‘My 2 Cents'."

Eric suggests: "Let us in on the conservative side of issues."

But Thelma thinks: "Make it a little more moderate."

Dustin writes: "Let the people pick the topic on ‘My Two Cents'."

Kristie wants us to: "Bring back the ‘In Your Corner' segment that Amanda did. It really has the power to change small business owners' practices."

Lori says: "New reporters and meteorologists need to learn the correct pronunciation of our cities and towns."

Darlene commented: "You do a great job of sharing your humanity without being immature."

Melissa writes: "Stop it with the ‘If it bleeds, it leads.' Oklahoma is the worst market for this."

From Brandi: "I live in Northern Oklahoma. I appreciate News 9. I feel like they are the only station that covers the weather for our area!"

Raquel liked when I gave: "Facebook updates during the bad weather. That was helpful when I was at work."

Molly is on grammar patrol: "Sounds like two year olds are doing the news sometimes."

And Leah adds: "'Ya know' and ‘Didja hear' might cut it if I meet you for coffee, but not when broadcasting the news. More Edward R Murrow, less Gomer Pyle."

Nice, I'm Kelly Ogle and that's YOUR 2 Cents.
