KPIX/CBS 5 has hired Elizabeth Cook to co-anchor the 5 PM news with Allen Martin. She'll also do some reporting. Cook will begin working at PIX following the February sweeps.

  1. She replaces who?..what blond?
    Oh well,its just a matter of time before Liz goes blond. Old female anchors dont fade away they just get blonder...

  2. Isn't this what helped to make Fox News successful? Lots of pretty people, good graphics, not much content. I'll stick to the New York Times delivered every morning to my Kindle.

  4. Why the misogyny Rich?
    At least you mentioned that she has a degree.

  5. I think Rich is pointing out female anchors HAVE to be beautiful-at any age. Male anchors can look like dorks and get away with it.

  7. The truth is she really is a mess ..sorry Liz, but you made your time here in PS somewhat easy for you to practice. I saw your many faults and I want you to remember Gino as ,, you acted like you did! Sorry!! she really wasn't that good here in the desert.. how do you think she will be in a real city metro. Maybe she learned from her mistakes.. good luck LIZ

    1. Gino was a Pompous ass who treated Women like playthings.
      Never cared for his Condescending attitude.
      Glad we moved back up to Nor Cal so we don’t have to watch his “Smart-Assed “ comments when he’s trying to be “Cute/Funny”.
      All he talked about was Golf.
      Elizabeth, if you read this...I’m pulling for ya!

  10. I hate to see her leave the desert, am happy for her new oppurtunity in a great city. Some of these people on here need to quit being so hateful. She put alot into our community and will be missed.

  11. Liz is the best news anchor I have had the pleasure to watch. Don't blame you for leaving Palm Springs and all the old crabby people down here.

  15. She is a natural and a great interviewer, her prior co-anchor Gino has zero interview skills.

  16. I'm very happy for her professional growth. I met her during President's Ford funeral. She was professional then and I expect she'll be even more so now. Good Luck, Elisabeth.

  17. I already miss her. In my opinion Elizabeth & Gino made a great team. Pretty entertaining at times.

    I wish her replacement well. She has some big shoes to fill.

  18. In Palm Springs we had a big earthquake and Elizabeth Cook just went on the air and laughed and smiled, joked, rather than report. She giggled rather thought on her feet and reported. Don't think she'll make in SF long.

  19. She was banging scott beahle not gino lamont!

  20. SHE WAS ONE OF THE BEST WE HAD IN THE DESERT. GINO IS GREAT AND NEEDS TO GET OUT OF HERE TOO. I THINK HE HAS LOW SELF ESTEEM.

  21. She is beautiful. I miss her. I wasn't aware of her departure. I Google to see what happened. I use to watch her in slow motion on DVR - She is irresistible. NL

  22. She is an outstanding Anchor and seriously gorgeous..

  23. After watching a number of her newscasts, all I can say is Stepford Wives. Kinda creepy. Like an automaton. Bring back John Kessler.

  24. I'm so happy Elizabeth Cook is in the bay area!!! I recently moved from the desert and watched she and Gino daily for over 4 years! It was so cool to see her here!She's a great newscaster and has a beautiful spirit about her. You people who have made these disparaging remarks need to get a life! Just because it's anonymous, doesn't mean you have to be jealous and hateful!

  26. She is very beautiful and intelligent. I enjoy watching her everyday.I hope she will also do the 6 pm news later on. CBS 5 ratings will really go up.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Watching her do the 5 pm news solo these past 4 days showed that she is very able to do it alone. I think she should be doing the 6 pm news because she is a very capable & intelligent woman, & by the way, she is also very beautiful. Its like a breath of fresh air watching her do the news. More power to her.

  28. Now that I've moved back from Palm Springs and can watch Elizabeth Cook makes my day and now it gets even better with Gil Diaz joining KPIX...I feel like I am at home now. Welcome you guys to the Bay Area. Don't pay any attention to those other comments....we love you.

  29. I think it's important to have smart and beautiful Anchors, and Elizebeth meets all the requirements. She has one of those faces if your going through channels you stop and look at her.
