CAN"T STAND HER VOICE!!!!!!!!!!

I’m hoping we don’t have to suffer through her “ hosting” much longer. It’s all bad; the voice, the wardrobe, the hair. I hear “ film nwaaaaaaa” in my sleep. I watch TCM for quality programming, not to be traumatized.

Glad to know I'm not the only one who is annoyed by her accent, hair, and wardrobe. I don't enjoy the intros anymore because of her, either. After reading some very negative comments about Tiffany Vasquez, I wrote to TCM about Malone. While the hair has improved, the wardrobe and accent are still bad. Vazquez was an amateur/novice whereas Malone is supposed to be a professional. I worked in federal equal employment opportunity for many years and support diversity; however, "Arthur Miller" shouldn't be pronounced "Artha Milla."

I hate her voice. I have to instantly mute her at all times now. SHE HAS TO GO!! It's not an accent. It is bad pronunciation

Hoping to see her replaced. Can’t take her voice. Too much Hollywood Botox/filler. Her face didn’t move.

Like fingernails on a chalkboard...that voice. Don't mind the accent but at least once per sentence spoken she make a tone that hurts my skull.

It's not her accent. The Australian accent is a beautiful thing. Malone's voice is a nasal screech that grates the nerves and assaults sensibilities without mercy.

Surely TCM can find someone (a lot) more credible and engaging. This Malone person is awful.

I also deplore Malone. She cannot introduce a movie . It’s painful to hear her try to exoresss one complete idea. She has nothing to offer or say . Tiffany was better and should have been given more time to develop as a spokesperson of her generation.

I like her. I think she brought some class . Not just a bunch of drunks and has beens. T.C.M. needs more sexy women

Heres my view as the #1 classic film fan and expert buff of all time---I love these movies cuz I LOVE THESE MOVIES!!!
I dont give a damn who is introducing them. If you all dont quit nitpicking EVERY one we will lose THE BEST CABLE FILM CHANNEL UNCUT AND COMMERCIAL FREE!!!
PLEASE there will never be another Robert Osborne so get some popcorn and enjoy the best channel anywhere. And Im 57 in case you want to jump all over me about my age too....

The new face of TCM are the hosts along with new music, film introduction, celebrity narrated bios, and fan based events. Being a host whether short-term or long-term doesn’t cause a station to be removed from the air. However being one that no one enjoys listening to does tend to get a host removed. There’s always someone bigger, better, funnier, more experienced. I understand she came from fan base replacing Tiffany. There will be another right behind Alicia. Soon....Unless someone gives her elocution lessons. TCM please keep looking for the perfect female host.

I can’t stand Alicia Malone as a host. Her voice, her presentation just makes me want to change the channel. TCM has been my favorite for years. This is so disappointing. Please, find someone else.

Is her language a 'fake' Australian brogue....Crocodile Dundee didn't talk like that.............she does not know how to pronounce a word that ends in 'er'.....*shudder...oh should I say *shuddah...
