    I loved her face and her expressions. It brightens my day!

    Why does she act like a phony? Very hard to watch her!!!

    1. StevenSep 1, 2022 at 2:02 am


      Agreed. Laura comes across as a phoney…Her “over-the-top” fun-loving language (verbal and physical) gets old real quick. I like Julia Avery, and would like to see more of her…and less of Laura. LOL!

    2. Cindy MarieApr 17, 2023 at 2:38 pm


      YES! I think it’s that “fake” non-stop smile. Keep Claire Kellett doing the Great Day show!

  3. Debora WelchSep 2, 2021 at 3:26 pm


    Since the great day is reporting about the vaccine, I would expect ACCURATE details on vaccine administered by the Tiers and Phases and the percentage of people in THOSE federally mandated groups, and the details of how many in THOSE groups vaccinated. Instead the great day show is telling about different COMPANIES who claim to expect a vaccine, THIS IS INCORRECT ACCORDING TO FEDERAL ROLLOUT OF VACCINE.

    The vaccine gets rolled out by TIERS AND PHASES and NOT COMPANIES.

    Laura said she wants to visit the Eiffel Tower. I have a piece of the monument obtained on one of many visits there. Will share my experiences with her.

    I hope Mark didn’t think he needed to get you such a huge ring…or did he? Almost too big for your hand. Will be hard to keep it upright.

  6. JimNov 12, 2019 at 11:49 pm


    I’m miserable without Laura

  7. Linda ThienNov 12, 2019 at 2:08 am


    Hi Laura and Matt,
    No one could be in a bad mood around the two of you –
    awesome way to start the day – a great day!
    Both of you are so happy, upbeat and funny, thank you!
    But I have to ask, Laura, how do you always have such a great
    tan; I love the way you dress, too!
    Keep up the great work and touching lives for the better!

  10. Ruby McneilNov 12, 2018 at 5:16 am


    Where is she? I miss her chipper personality as she reports the traffic. I hope she is okay and will be back on in the morning.

  11. Janice HettrickOct 12, 2018 at 3:22 pm


    Where is Laura? I never miss early am news show then Great Day. I must have went to kitchen and missed why she is gone now. I hope this is temporary because she brings light hearted and interest to her traffic reports or Great Day. I was very excited for her when one day she actually report the news. Great Day will be very boring without her. Please don’t let her go she has such a smile that it gives me some enjoyment.

  12. Dorothy DiekemperOct 12, 2018 at 1:17 pm


    Have not seen you on great day for some time what happened. I miss your smiling face and up beat attitude.
