KATV Owner Makes "Big Bad Boss List"


Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Source: Washington Post Joe L. Allbritton, chairman of Riggs Bank, was feared widely. And for good reason. A former officer at the company said that Virginia White, Allbritton's personal secretary, would send shoe polish to executives with a note stating that the chairman wondered if the executive might want to polish his shoes. He was famous for yelling at executives, for upbraiding a bank officer he might spot working at his desk without his jacket on. He would fire executives over the phone, including a now-former chief financial officer. A spokesman for the family did not return phone calls.

Can you say "run-on sentence" ?

The poster above is hilarious.. I would say in his or her early teens. Funny stuff.

KATV is doing a good job... first or second in most all time slots. Anyone who thinks that's awful is just wrong.

Let's talk about the age thing... would you rather watch Alice Stewart or Beth Hunt do the news? Easy answer !

Looks like KARK is pushing past KTHV in the nightly news slot. What can KTHV do to climb out of third?

Why does we continue to humor this person? It's embarrassing really.

Judging from the writing style, we know one thing for certain. They're not lieing about being the KATV reporter.

KATV will get it's just desert's? Would that be the Mohave Desert or Sahara Desert or what?

If you means just desserts.. then I hope it's pecan. I just love pecan.

Okay new topic.. who is the HOTTEST broadcaster on Arkansas TV? Has to be either Beth Hunt, Christina Munoz or Jessica Morkert. KATV has a lock on the hotties!

Isn't Allbritton the same guy that made KGOP endorse Bush?

As for the hottest guy in LR tv, I'd say Jason Harper.

 
At 11:29 AM, June 01, 2005, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Yeah, Jason is great. But he also has the personality to back it up. Why he isn't anchoring somewhere, I have no idea. Maybe he enjoys being out in the field, instead of behind a desk. He has a big future ahead.

^^You're absolutely right. He has the looks, personality & humor. He would be a great anchor- and he could definitely make it in a larger market as a reporter if he wanted to. I'm sure LR will lose another good one someday when he decides to move on. Just like Devon!

Wish I knew who the above poster way... obviously female and a big fan of Devon. Probably younger and in the biz....

Anyone see Tyler Baldwin's hard new story on the cat that died? I've never laughed so hard... that guy's career is sinking fast. Maybe he can be co-anchor with DeeeeWayne Graham.

Female Hotties? Joan Early. I noticed 4 is getting better looking. Melissa Semas and Katie Nielson look good. Not to mention Jancey Sheets. THV has one reporter that looks like a porn star. I can't remember her name.

To the above poster- I am a fan of Devon and I'm younger, but not in the biz. I just like tv news! This is the last week I get to see him on air. :(

KARK has added some babes... Simas Nielsen are okay... Sheats has a nice look.

Porn star reporter at KTHV? Who could that be ???

Jancey is okay- Joan looks kind of rough. I think Donna on Fox is pretty but SO annoying!

Joan has had too much work done... has the Michael Jackson nose thing going. Alice Stewart has had a lot of work done, too, but it improved things.

Best all-natural news babe? Either Morkert or Munoz.

I know why they moved Ernie Paulson to nights at KARK... he puts people to sleep, anyway. They moved him off the morning show because viewers were falling back to sleep and missing work !

I like Ernie's stories. I never saw him on the morning show. His reports at ten have been a good addition.

Who just wrote that... Ernie's mom?

Louisa Drouet was totally hot... and totally mental. Now she's completely out of the media biz.

Christina McLarty was hot... but she KNEW she was hot. Sorta takes all the fun out of it.

^^ she wasn't that great.

I know McLarty wasn't that hot... but money helps a lot with clothes, hair, make-up, etc. Who does the above poster this is hot?

Do reporters get $ for clothing? I just thought the anchors did.

reporters don't get clothes. anchors get some money but not a ton to buy clohtes

I think the poster is saying McLarty's dad was loaded. She was hired at KATV as a favor for Mr. Allbritton, he wanted to do something nice for Mr McLarty.

Reporters don't get money, either. Most start out in the low 20s... and that's for someone with supposedly a college degree. Not a lot, but, they're all hoping to make it big someday. 99% won't.

 
At 11:01 AM, June 03, 2005, Anonymous Anonymous said...

What do you think some of the salaries are around here? Say, for reporters at the 4 stations? Low-20's?

 
At 11:51 AM, June 03, 2005, Anonymous Anonymous said...

To start out... low- to mid-20s sounds about right. Not much for all the late hours and high stress.

 
At 12:06 PM, June 03, 2005, Anonymous Anonymous said...

McLarty turned out to be a good hire. She didn't last in Little Rock long. She's now working in Dallas and has been very successful in a new entertainment program. She's even been seen on the national level. There's speculation she may go entirely national.

McLarty won't go national because she's never had to do the heavy lifting... most of her career has been boosted by her name and her looks.

KARK is just killing KATV at 5.... what's up with KATV doing so much international news, right off the bat? KARK is doing much more local stuff... winning handily.

 
At 2:42 PM, June 03, 2005, Anonymous Anonymous said...

KATV has nover done much local news at 5. They save it for the 6.

 
At 3:04 PM, June 03, 2005, Anonymous Anonymous said...

So that means KATV is content to finish THIRD in the ratings at 5? Arkansas's News Leader doesn't mind being bottom of the barrel ?

I used to watch 7 regularly. But in the last year or so they just haven't been as good. It's just the same old crap thrown together. Obviously not much thought goes into their "news".

Ok now after reading that post lets get rid of Dale Nickerson,Randy Dixion and Rusty Mizel and i think they are the problem.
