KATV 10pm Anchor Feud


It seems KATV isn't a happy shop to be in these days. You've got the morning program in which SOME viewers are having a problem getting used to AND a feud among co-workers with the News Director in the middle of it. Received the following from an e-mailer on the anchor-go-round situation at 10pm:
"At 10pm...Munoz got an offer somewhere else. Randy Dixon wanted to keep her so he gave her the 10pm spot. This of course has made several people mad. Including Kate and Beth Hunt. Beth threatens to leave and presto anchor change-o she's the co-host of the new Daybreak."

It seems there's more than the weather that is unsettled in Little Rock!

BTW, still no response from KATV ND Randy Dixon from the several e-mails I have sent.

I got another great idea how about getting rid of Pamela Smith and
replacing her with jessica morker and that will be good for the weekend news ratings and yes pam i am getting back at you.

Who's making up this KATV fantasy? There's no feud among the women...
it's a supportive environment. Someone posted here that Beth got mad and
threatened to quit.. so they gave her the morning spot. That's a
lie.... she's a quality person and does not pull that kind of high school
stuff. If people want to post information on this site... how about at
least getting it right

There is no feud between the women at KATV. If anything there might be some anger directed at Randy Dixon but not between the women. That is just an outright lie.

As far as Beth goes, I hope she realizes she needs to bail on that awful excuse for a morning show and get back to what she does best, reporting. That move was career suicide.

That's right get rid of Dale Nickerson and all of the high powered exec's so they can hire some good people that are able to work so we can all have quality programing instead of having TABLOID TV.

You may be right there about the lack of a Feud between the women of KATV but Beth Hunt did threaten to quit and was given the Daybreak gig to make her happy. Beth deserves everything she gets, she really is a class act. The problem was that Randy had told her she would get a chance at doing the 10. Then he gave it to Munoz. So you can understand why Ms. Hunt was a bit upset.

As for MidDay Arkansas, look for it to move to 3pm this fall in a newly expanded River Market Studio. With your host Ann "I wonder how she got this job" Pressley.

To the above poster... Beth personally told you that she threatened to quit? Unless she did... you can't say it's true. What do you guys think of Jessica Morkert? Seems she's coming into her own and doing good work.

OK NOW WHAT WE NEED TO DO IS TO STILL IMPROVE THE RATINGSS AT KATV BY STILL SHAKING KATV FROM THE TOP DOWN BY REPLACING DALE NICKERSON,RUSTY MIZEL AND RANDY DIXION AND I KNOW FOR SURE THAT CHANNEL 7 DID READ THESE COMMENTS AND I KNOW A STAFF MEMBER WROTE THOSE COMMENTS TO SOOTH THINGS OVER BUT IT IS NOT GOINT TO WORK AND WE ARE SICK OF SEEING THE SAME OLD THING ON KATV AND LET ABC GO BACK TO DO REGULAR PROGRAMING TO GIVE THE REST OF US A BREAK FROM CHANNEL SEVEN AND I CALL IT TV JUSTICE.

RANDY DIXION AND RUSTY MIZELL I KNOW KNOW THAT YOU READ THESE COMMENTS AND I KNOW THAT YOU HAVE SPIN DOCTORS OUT HERE TRYING TO PATCH THINGS UP BUT IT ALL LOOKS LIKE THINGS WILL STILL NOT GO RIGHT BECAUSE ANYTIME SOME ONE COMES UP WITH A DOG FOR A MASSCOT TO HELP YOU OUT IT MIGHT NOT GO AS WELL AS YOU THINK BECAUSE SOME TV STATIONS DO IT FOR A LITTLE WHILE AND THEN SCRAP IT SO MY ADVICE TO YOU IS WHY DON'T WE SCRAP YOU INSTEAD.

Are you sure Baldwin was dating Morkert? If they are not now... I wonder who dumped who? He seems a little egotistical... she seems like a class act.

Speaking of tv people dating, who does Devon @ katv date? He's too cute.

I'm not sure who Devon dates... if anyone. Most television people are "married" to their career... until they realize it's just another job.
