NWA May Ratings Numbers

Arkansas Business.com has posted the May Nielson numbers for Northwest Arkansas. Below are the highlights from the article:

> KHBS+ had an 11 rating at 6 p.m., compared to eight for KFSM. The area’s two leading stations were tied for the 5 p.m. news slot, each with a rating of nine. But KFSM held onto its lead during the 10 p.m. news slot with a 10 rating, compared to nine for KHBS+.

The article says the numbers for KNWA were not released by the other stations due to KNWA not subscribing to Nielson. AB.com does say, "KNWA had consistently posted Nielsen ratings in the lower single digits."

Read the full article HERE.

Additional: On a side note, Arkansas Business reports KHBS/KHOG, Channels 40/29, plans to expand its morning news coverage by 30 minutes beginning Aug. 8.

I've seen the May book, and to say KNWA posts numbers in "the lower single digits" is an understatement.

KNWA's morning show records hashmarks and their 5PM news is not much better.

everybody watches 40/29 because everybody knows craig cannon and donna bragg (at 10 pm)...they are this decade's channel 5, meaning everybody grew up with channel 5 and bur edson in the 80s and 90s and now that same effect is helping 40/29 out tremendously and starting to see 5 slip a bit because they dont have a familiar anchor team and i havent heard a person that likes tim malone.

Craig and Donna are nothing special. Leslie Wright is 40/29's best anchor and that Tiffany Stewart is good too.

Craig and Donna are *the* two most popular anchors in the market...hands down. They hunker down 40/29-- they are the reason people love that station. Leslee Wright and Tiffany Stewart are not too far behind. Their reporters aren't bad either.

NO NO NO...I mean no one loves Craig Cannon. The guy can't even read a prompter and has no personality.

There are no "great" anchors in NWA, but Don Elkins is close. Put him at 40/29 or Channel 5 and you have a serious ratings winner. Elkins is by far the best in the business in NWA, he's just buried at a horrible station.

Leslie Wright's fans want to know where she is... or went... something?

I was just wondering the same thing! Where is Leslie Wright? I met her at a Bridal fair a couple of years ago and she was just as sweet as can be!
