Kate is amazing....

And to all the KATV haters in here... yet another "poll" shows that Channel 7 is the most-liked station in the state.

hmmm....KATV won 2 out of 4....I'd say it was a split down the middle. Tickles me Ed beat Ned and Craig beat Paul and Steve.

AND just because it is the "most liked" doesn't mean it's the BEST in the NEWS business. 11 and 4 do waaaaaay more news than 7. Watch them and count for yourself. It's just a matter of time before the viewers wake up and see that.

I am not a KATV hater. I watch Channel 7 all the time. Just not for the morning train wreck show.

Morning show train wreck is right. Have you noticed that they have already changed the name of the show back to just "daybreak"? I wonder why they droped the GMA?

KATV was named "best overall" by the readers.... and that means nothing to you? Oh well, some people just have closed minds.

KATV has the most public support, by far:

TV News -- 3 of 4 favorites.
TV Weather -- 2 of 4 favorites.
TV Sports -- 2 of 3 favorites.
Overall -- 7 of 11 favorites.

You KATV haters are just in the minority... the public obviously likes it. Enough said.

Craig and Ed stuff the ballot boxes for themselves in the Best of Arkansas poll. I work at the station. I see those two filling out hundreds of those ballots at a time.

Interesting. Craig and Ed both stuff their boxes? Doesn't surprise me about Ed even though he seems to be a nice guy but I wouldn't have thought so with Craig. Sure this is true? Any other stuffers you know of??
