Covering the Big Fight

Looks like the Little Rock TV stations are pulling out all the stops to cover the BIG FIGHT between Little Rock native Jermain Taylor Bernard Hopkins. I know KATV has a crew in Vegas. Pam Smith and Justin Acri broadcasted live Thursday night from vegas.


KTHV has posted video of an interview Craig O'Neill did with Taylor. It also has bios of the two boxers and other stats. On other LR station websites, info about the fight was scarce or non-existant.

UPDATE: KARK AND KTHV have crews in Sin City to cover the fight also. Not sure at this point WHO they sent. Will post that as I learn that.

UPDATE: ATN has been learned: "Mark Rushing has been in Vegas all week for KARK 4."

UPDATE: Mark Edwards is LIVE in Sin City covering the story for KTHV. ALSO noticed this evening where Pam Smith and Justin Acri hosted an hour special about the upcoming fight.

I think 16 even has a crew there. Yeah.. hard to say exclusive. Show's they're desperate. You know they figured that everyone would be there.

KATV was the first there.... so they are leading the pack. Fox16 needs to fill an hour every night... so it's a good move for them to go there. Wonder if Donna might do a sweeps piece on being a stripper in Vegas?

Leading the pack? Becasue they got their a day earlier, when nothing is going on. What is tonight's story going to be? What's bigger: Justin Acri's neck or Jermaines waist?

Mark Edwards is painful to watch. He always mentions Halle Berry and he makes some peace symbol at the end of EVERY sportscast he does. That is so unprofessional and the news director or Craig O'Neill needs to put a stop to it. I've heard several people I've been around mention him doing that. It's distracting.

Anyone planning on watching and blogging the fight?

I saw where KATV had their new lead reporter reporting from a bar that's showing the fight. I bet he gets sloshed before the night is finished.

Why wouldn't Justin get sloshed in Vegas? Why wouldn't the new guy get hammered ?
