October 19, 2018 - 8:31 am


Where is Lynn Collier?

And why so many changes? I love the morning News team now as it is. Love having a male anchor alongside Sonia. PLEASE do not get rid of Sonia now, too.

Congrats to Jordan on the new assignment – a good move. Should of moved Sonia Deol to a reporter position.

Good, now can they get rid of the ridiculous full screen tickers in the morning?

October 20, 2018 - 10:28 am


Absolutely love Sonia Deol . Could watch her professional style all day .

October 20, 2018 - 11:54 pm


Somewhere out there…. there’s a PR job for Sonia Deol. Hurry!

Hey Paul! When Global Morning News started showing all those full screen tickers and stuff, effectively turning my 50″ TV into a 32″ TV, I emailed them to complain and was told (to paraphrase): It’s what the people want.

I think they haven’t a clue what the people want.

GLOBALIST news……..nuff said.

October 21, 2018 - 5:09 pm


So, Sonia is to continue anchoring the Weekend New Hour at 6. But above that, the note says Jordan will move to do the Weekend Evening Anchor Desk. Does that mean he and Sonia will be a team on the desk?

October 22, 2018 - 8:58 am


Agree with Lee H regarding the tickers reducing the effective screen size. If I want to too all the crap, I can watch BC1 … GET RID OF IT ON THE MAIN CHANNEL!

Jill … Are you listening??

Yes, they need to get rid of those tickers. CTV gets it right which is a shame because Haysom and co do a great job

Does anyone watch Global any more? There’s not much going on there except a constant change of faces or combined and then gone…. It’s dull and uninspiring…

Please get rid of the ticker! Very annoying and it makes me turn it off! Please also let us know when Lyn will be back. Although Colleen seems nice she is terrible to watch. She is not funny and she is too animated.

Will all the people complaining about the tickers please please please let Global know what they think! [email protected]

As has been said here: If we want that stuff we can watch BC1

I doubt anyone from Global pays any attention to this forum.

As for shuffling around of personalities, no one seems to take into account what the personalities themselves want. I don’t think anyone wants to keep getting up at 3am any longer than they have to. No one wants to work *every* weekend.

The question has been asked–Does anyone still watch Global?

I do but I PVR the evening news and usually can get through that hour in about 10 minutes, fast forwarding through the stuff that doesn’t interest me.

In the morning I am constantly switching between Global, CTV CBC and City. Mostly Global because they seem to do a better job of coverage of events outside the Lower Mainland.

All the networks have personalities we like, personalities we can’t stand and personalities we just don’t care about. Just wait long enough and they will be gone.

(Except, of course, for the ones *I* can’t stand. They never seem to go away. LOL)

We really only watch Global on weekday mornings. Really happy to see Paul Haysom back and like Neetu as well. The ticker still sucks though!

November 7, 2018 - 3:48 am


Troy – Neetu is great, but no one will know who she is because no one really watches anymore.

My family and I too are bothered by the smaller viewing screen of your hosts. We really miss the full screen. Happy your noon hour news is the full screen. We don’t mind it on BC1, as we only tune in now and then.

Also, as soon as your topic is addiction, we switch channels. It is a tough subject to report. We get upset to see the addicted person shooting up. Please refrain from giving young people lessons on how to inject the substance. You do not need the demos.

Please please please let Global know your thoughts directly.

This is *not* Global. Posting your thoughts here will not do any good!

Very arrogant people in charge.

November 11, 2018 - 12:11 pm


At least they’re not CBC, where they have mentally impaired individuals writing their online news stories.

Big mistake by you guys moving Jordan Armstrong to weekend news. Paul his son thinks he’s a comedian, he is the joke. morning news anchor Jordan’s professionalism appearance and approach to the job can only be matched to Peter Mansbridge. Good luck with future moves !
