Vanessa is a reporter with NewsChannel 8 and has been with the station since May 1998.Prior to joining WQAD , Vanessa was with Spoon River College as a speech instructor.She entered the world of journalism because she loves to investigate , be out in the field and work on new projects on a daily basis.According to Vanessa , journalism is a new adventure everyday.
Vanessa is a graduate of Western Illinois University with a Master's Degree in Broadcasting and is originally from Annawan , Illinois.When she is not out investigating a new story , you will find her spoiling her five nieces and nephews or walking her eight year old miniature pinscher.
Oh, PLEASE tell me Vanessa Van ...

Oh, PLEASE tell me Vanessa Van Hyfte isn't taking Barbara Dawson's place!!!
...
Vanessa has absolutely no personality or camera appeal at all.No facial expression (in fact, half the time she looks mad!) and, in my opinion, she spends most of the newscasts flirting with whatever man happens to be sitting next to her!She's no professional, that's for sure.She's fine for the weekends and as a fill in but , NOT as an anchor to watch 5 days a week during 3 newscasts!!

I agree with you, Arnie.WQAD just made a huge mistake by replacing Barbara Dawson With Vanessa VanHyfte.Vanessa doesn't have what it takes to be an anchor for 3 newscasts a day.
...
Having worked with Vanessa for years, she's ANYTHING but a giggly school-girl.We've had other female anchors at 6 and 10 who were/are far less credible and intelligent.She's put together award-winning stories, such as Dusty's Miracle, which won a regional Edward R Murrow award.
Also, Vanessa will be doing 2 newscasts, not 3.
I would hope that ANY viewer would be willing to give Vanessa a chance to grow in her new role.And I hope you'll take time to meet her at public appearances.You'll find she is a very warm and engaging person, cares about her community and will bring a level of professionalism and credibility to the 6 and 10 that is unmatched.
There are some of us who are very excited she was chosen for this job and look forward to watching her continued professional growth, having seen her from the beginning, when she started out as an intern with NewsChannel 8!

Well, I for one am not excited.I never liked her and I think her on camera personality leaves alot to be desired.Like Arnie said, she's fine for the weekends but not for the regular everyday newscasts.It's a shame WQAD couldn't look outside their box and bring in someone fresh . ..and I have met Vanessa at public appearances.My wife and I met her at Eagle Days a year ago.I wasn't impressed at all.

The only problem I have with Vanessa going into the talking head position is that she won't be a reporter any more.If anything, her record has established her as a trustworthy reporter.She doesn't hype things up or over dramaticize.She's a refreshing reporter and I'm sure she'll do a helluva job anchoring.

hmm.. So, I am assuming that Michelle is the Michelle Aguayo at WQAD??
Anyways..I had no idea that Vanessa was the replacement for Barb.
...
Vanessa has come a long way since she first came to NC 8..doing just some reporting.
I am actually surprised that Vanessa is still there!Being how young she seems.
...
I am excited for Vanessa.And you know, Maybe Matt Hammill will teach her some things (since you all seem not to like Vanessa's style)
...
I'm confident Vanessa will reveal more of her personality the more comfortable she gets in her new role.
...
Oh, and I agree with WQAD Fan - I think both Julie and Vanessa could have the opportunity to move on the "bigger and better".
...
Both of you get a life and give Vanessa a chance….I'm assuming your both are "perfect" in what you do and your shallow and premature comments are so absurd it's amazing.
...
I happen not to like Vanessa.
...
YOU don't like anyone do you??….Dang, your hard to please-tell me you have more to life than monitoring this blog all day long!!……and by the way, YOUR the one that can't handle the questioning of your personal insults on individuals….don't try to spin this around…give Vanessa a chance.

Are you by any chance the Mark that Vanessa is currently dating?
...
I wouldn't say I have a favorite, but if I did it would probably be Vanessa Van Hyfte.In my opinion she does a fantastic job.I don't find her cold or flirty at all, but that is just me.She just seems like a good person.
...
Trust me, the new blood of Channel 8, with Vanessa will hurt Channel 6.It should.
...
But, I do know that a lot of people aren't big fans of Vanessa, so..it could go either way.In my opinon, I think Vanessa would be a good replacement.
...
I have always watched Channel 8 but I have to agree that Vanessa just doesn't do it for me.
...
Let's get some books by Neal Castor or beauty tips from Julie, Vanessa and Barbara.

One of my favorite local TV journalists, Vanessa Van Hyfte of WQAD, fuffed a line in a tease for the story on GW Bush authorizing Dick Cheney to authorize I. Scooter Libby to leak classified intelligence to the media to help build the administration's case for the Invasion of Iraq.
...
Said Hyfte: "The White House responds to Scooter Libby's testimony about President Bush and Iraq intelligent leaks.
...
Even as I chuckled, I couldn't help but notice that Hyfte's promised explanation did little to inform viewers about the gravity of the story:
