Only on ATN: Lucie Speaks About New Job



Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Arkansas TV News received this e-mail from KATV Weekend Met Devon Lucie:

"Yes, the rumors you hear are correct. I'll be leaving to Las Vegas Monday June 6th which means Sunday the 5th will be my last day. My new station will be KVVU Fox 5 which will offer me a great chance to forward my career and broadcasting skills as a meteorologist, not to mention having a nice side effect of high visibility.

KATV was the best thing that happened to me over the last 8 years. It's been a great opportunity to be able to work for one of the finest ABC affiliates in the country and have made many great friendships at the station and within the community that will last a life time.


Devon "

Arkansas TV News thanks Lucie for taking the time to respond to some questions we e-mailed him.

That shows a lot of class on Devon's part to respond to the rumors. In my opinion the best weekend weather guy in the market. He could hold his own against a lot of people.

Good luck Devon.

So what sucks about KATV? Can you give facts and just not opinion?

It's all opinion. If you think KATV is doing a great job that's your opinion and there are no facts to back that up. And if you think KATV "sucks" that again is opinion and there will be many reasons one might give for that opinion.

It's all very subjective.

That being said...what in your opinion is KATV doing right?

You want KATV strengths by show?

Morning -- new format with lots of weather, talk, traffic, news, sports, etc. Most news is from the night before, but, who's gonna prepare new stuff at 3 a.m.? It's a buffet, at least something everyone can like.

5 and 6 -- Kate is excellent, Scott is decent. Strong reporting with Jessica out front. Lots of live shots.

10 -- Christina has great presence... and there are more new stories than on the other stations. Count and see.

You missed the mid-day show. No news in that program. All fluff. And to think the promos say SEVEN IS NEWS.

All you have to say that KATV is good is nothing but opinion. Same as anyone that says they don't like the shows. Who says Kate is excellent? Who did the readers of the Democrat Gazette and Ark Times pick has their favorite? Scott's decent, we'll that's kind of a back handed compliment isn't it. Christina has great presence? What, presence? You mean she's good at taking up space? What do you mean by presence?

Devon, Your class and professionalism will be missed. Ned should have been put on the backburner and Devon should have been named Chief Meteorologist.

Best Wishes Devon. Hopefully, you will come back to Little Rock in the future.

All of the weather people at 7 are prima Donnas. I wish I had a job where I got paid those salaries and all I had to do was be right half the time.
