Coverage of the Big Fight: LR Stations Barely Cover Outcome

Kudos to KTHV as it was the ONLY Little Rock TV station to update its website with the news Jermain Taylor is the new Middleweight Champion Of The World. KARK's and KATV's website was not updated with the news. I was for certain the Little Rock stations would have even announced the news on the air with at the very least a crawl at the bottom of the screen. Looks like they will wait and report it as history later today.

UPDATE: 07/17 11:45am As of this posting KATV.com has an AP story on the fight and KARK.com is still running the pre-fight story.

Couldn't KARK Ch.4 at least spell his name right on their web-site?
Their mistake after mistake continue to amaze me.

Why don't you try pointing out their mistakes...instead of just generalizing the "mistakes."

At least they didn't have Alma in Northeast Arkansas and they didn't have the huge Dewitt mistake which had that town losing many jobs that were actually being lost in Pennsylvania like KATV did.

You're talking about one typo on a website.

So you're a psychic now...Just for your information I do not work for Ch. 4. And by the way i'm still waiting to hear what other mistakes you're referring to...unless of course you can't think of any.

Joe Pequeno is... hands down... the worst sports guy in the state. He's such an "ESPN wannabe" that he totally rips off their style and language. But the problem is, Joe rips off stuff they were doing last year. He's such a follower.

Anybody who plays Media League Softball learned what kind of guy Joe Pequeno is. He's a 2-year-old in a 10-year-old body.

What a jerk.

So he's taken the reigns from old Mark Whineberg formerly of KTHV.

Joe thinks that by pulling such stunts... he "stands out" in this market. He certainly does that, but, not in a good way.

Well did anyone see Jason pederson's free fall the other day...if you're lucky the video is still up on KATV.com. It was a hoot. Too bad it didn't jar some sense into him.

I have noticed KATV using the AP for alot of local stories as of late? Wonder what the deal is?

At least KATV still has AP. Unlike others who don't want to spend the money. . . stupid.

I think that just makes KARK look stronger cuz they actually do their own newsgathering versus rip and read.

UH, you're not so bright--

So the bombings in London hit the AP before ANYWHERE else. KARK is at least a few minutes behind getting the info from a secondary source. Duh. KARK isn't in every city and town in the world to pick up news as it happens. AP is. Don't you get what AP is for?

DUH...that's why you are a network affiliate. Sure the AP is suppose to be about getting the news from around the WORLD. BUT KATV uses it for LOCAL STORIES. LOCAL STORIES. Shows they were too lazy to send a reporter OR have someone write one to cover the LOCAL STORY.

. . . And you would know KATV uses AP for local stories because. . . Lemme guess, you're psychic? You don't have AP, but you know what it says so you can compare wording?

Nooooooo...because it states (AP) before the story. Maybe I should have clarified....KATV.com. BUT most of the time what you see on KATV.com is the EXACT same thing they use on the web.

PSSST...the newspaper also uses the AP. THV uses teh AP on webstories, too. And believe it or not KATV and KTHV use CNN video and copy in their newscasts, too.

What's the big deal about using AP. KARK has decided to go without. More power to them, from what I see they're doing fine without it.

BUT FOR A LOCAL STORY???? When you see (AP) on a LOCAL STORY it should worry the news director why HIS reporters didn't do it. Looks very bad. You need original content.

Just look at KATV.com right now. The top 4 stories are cut and pasted from the Associated Press. Is KATV's news department not at work yet? COME ON. Give us LOCAL NEWS from a LOCAL SOURCE. The odds are good the stories where submitted to the AP by the Dem-Gaz and KATV just cuts and pastes to just get by.

And most of their other stories on the web come their sister station WJLA in DC. Does KATV have a web-master?

I think when someone is diagnosed with a terrible illness, they, and their family also, quickly realize that there simply is no time to waste on being sad. That they need to allocate all of their time to enjoying life and each other and to fighting the disease.
