Doug Warner KSLA 13 hrs · Remembering longtime KTBS news anchor Al Pierce today. Sure, he worked for ‘the other guys’. But I’ve never looked at things like that. We all do the same job and face the same challenges. And my full respect to anyone who can last and make a legitimate career in this business, much less remain a constant at one place as long as he did. I never had the pleasure of meeting Al. He worked at channel 3 for 20 years, and left the business before I first moved to Shreveport in the late 90s. His longtime co-anchor Liz Swaine posted today, “The anchor desk in Heaven just got much more entertaining”. Based on that statement alone, I think I would have liked this guy a lot. If you’re not having fun with what you’re doing, then it’s not worth doing. Al proudly did his job for a long time. And that certainly says plenty to me. Rest In Peace, sir. Prayers to the Pierce family today.
I’m don’t think I’ll ever forget the night he thought the cameras had stopped rolling & he said a colorful 4 letter word !! I was laying in bed watching him & just roared when I heard him !!! Rest in piece Al, you won’t be forgotten to soon !!
My condolences to his family. Al and my dad Gene Nixon aka Kent were roommates at the VA Home until my dad died in Oct.2019.My dad could not keep a roommate until Al because he would listen to rock and roll with the volume full blast on his cassette player.They got along famously and had actually meant each other years before. I will never forget how kind Al was to my dad.
He was a great news anchor. A staple in our household. He came across as loving his life and a bit of a prankster. He was a positive in our daily life. Delivering good news and bad news in a factual, caring manner. I can see him right now snickering at some inside joke as he tried to complete a segment. Prayers for his family!
I remember Al Pierce when he & Liz Swaine did the news together @ KTBS n S’port. They were quite a pair. Condolences 2 his family, friends, former colleagues & the station. May he rip now. Does anyone know what happened?
May he rest in peace. I met him years ago when I was managing a store on north mkt. He would always come into my office and we would talk about his time on tv and life!!!! Praying for HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
– my family has mainly watched KSLA for news and weather most of our lives…but when visiting other friends and family, and occasionally here too, would watch Al Pierce and the news. I have to say his personality was really good and he and Liz Swain were a really good match for the news. I know you being the person who you are, you both really would and could have been friends. Condolences to the Pierce family, with deepest sympathy…
