Made no impression on me at all except for me not liking her voice. What are her international credentials? Does she have any?

For me can't hold a candle to Asieh Namdar and Isha Sesay.

Last night I watched WN with BB and I'm not that impressed either.
She is trying to much to be serious and it looks a bit fake.
Pluse she made several mistakes, but she's new so I can forget that.
Maybe she'll get better with time.

I managed to finally see her on CNN for the first time last weekend. I think she looks nice and she has a good voice for an anchor. Hope to see more of her in the future.

she is way too local news for my taste and expectations for an international news channel. Even local news biz is competitive and she might find it had to break through as an anchor let alone a global channel.

I think she is quite good for a young anchor. With more time and experience she has potential.

She won't get better with time. She's always been like that -- trying too hard to be someone else. She's a weird combination of anchorbot and "cool casual chick." But she can't really pull off either very well. She is hot though.

"And here we see the majestic B-52. Look closely when her little babies now take their first step into adulthood. They carefully leave the warmth of her mothers belly and set foot into the wild. Silently they fly towards their new home and lodge themselves into the ground and bringing some motherfu**in freedom to anyone in need. The B-52 is now ready to mate again and soon another batch of little bomblings will spawn from its womb to continue the never ending cycle of freedom and democracy."

Brooke is from Atlanta...she went to my high school actually. She graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill, got a job with a news station in Charlottesville, VA. Then, she was working at Fox 5 in Washington DC, and now it seems she has made the jump to CNN. Back in her home town!

no international cred.
believe she was brought in by her old manager who moved from dc to cnn ... brought BB with her.
she has no originality and no real personality. but she smiles well and smart enough to pretend what she thinks an anchor should be.

Hi guys,
I've seen her yesterday as a correspondent/reporter,reporting on the DC firearms ban thing.
From what I saw,I think she's a far better reporter than anchor.She also seemed to be far more comfortable in that position than behind the anchordesk,really more relaxed.
I think CNN should leave it that way and not use her as an anchor anymore.

Quite right ginnyfan,there's no need to talk about Brooke like that-talk about anyone like that.

If someone can delete this guest's post,would he/she please be so kind and search the Kristie thread as well.
Cause I read in in a while ago & found a similar offensive post,though I don't know if it's still there.

And thank you to every one who was so kind and tried to explain to me how to make these beautiful caps.At first I didn't understand anything-sorry,not your fault,my fault,but my cousin explained it a bit to me and told me that I need some kind of programme for this.
I asked him if He could give it to me for my birthday and he said yes-my birthday is in October so I have to wait a little.

Have a nice weekend

I was working out and was captivated by her beauty. I did actually listen to the story as well. :D . Had no idea who she was so came to google to find out about her. Guess i'll take a bit more interest in ATL news. She does a lot of hand jestures but i think that it is better then standing like a wood stick reporting

Reading this bio of Brooke confirms what I already suspected she has no or virtually no international credentials and therefore in my opinion shouldn't be used by CNNi. This is my position and it is unalterable. If that Regi fellow is the same then standards are slipping markedly.

That see-through top Brooke wore this Sunday (?) was pretty unusual for CNNi.

I didn't even know she was with CNN now.. I was crazy about her a couple of years ago when she was on WOWK.. my local CBS. Last I saw her, she was anchoring the morning news for the channel before leaving, and I never found out where, other than when she started working in Washington DC. All of the sudden, I see her on Headline News tonight and I almost lost it haha
