LR TV Anchors Want Plastic Surgery Budget in Wake of HDTV
I will admit I read this article yesterday in the Atlanta Journal Constitution and totally missed the part where Little Rock was mentioned in it BUT apparently with the onset of HDTV, anchors at one Little Network affiliate are wanting plastic surgery to be included in the station's budget. Below is the part that mentions Little Rock:
"I can certainly understand the concern because it is so clear," said Reg Griffin, vice president of communication for Comcast Cable, which provides cable television to 700,000 customers in metro Atlanta. "If there's someone out there concerned about that, whether it is a newscaster or an actor, I think that concern is valid."For example of what a Hi-def news program looks like, tune into Showbiz Tonight on CNN/Headline News at 6pm CDT.
Griffin said one Little Rock network affiliate got a request from the on-air staff to include a budget for plastic surgery and dermabrasion along with the cash for hi-def cameras.
