Christin Ayers is a damn good reporter, a tenacious correspondent and has star potential, which is why she is the subject of rumors that MSNBC is interested in the KPIX personality.
Too bad KPIX doesn't provide her more airtime. In an industry where story length and time on air is vital, Ayers is MIA too much of the time. That's mostly on the assignment editor at PIX; curiously, Ayers hasn't been on the radar as much lately.
On Wednesday, she did a live shot from Berkeley on the soda tax initiative --it was pointed, well-paced and chock full of information and nice and quick, but that's the point. I'd like to see more of Ayers. She's earned her stripes and I know management likes her; she's also extremely well-liked by most of the staff at 8
55 Battery, so it's a puzzle we don't see more of her. Even Channel 5 likes to hype one of its star pupils and that's good and very prudent. Now just get more stories and we'll all be happy.
