Hurricane Katrina Still Making Local Headlines
I have mostly been watching the Shreveport stations to see how they are covering the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina BUT I also skimmed over the Little Rock stations during the 10pm newscast. ALL the Little Rock stations lead the 10pm newscast with coverage of the devastation. All three Shreveport stations offered continuous coverage offering up different perspectives on the story.
This is the first time I have seen KTAL really get involved in a story. KTAL has sent reporters Shannon Slatton, Jason Clark and Kimberly Williams to south Louisiana. KTBS and KSLA also have reporters in the region.
KSLA anchor Michelle White has family members staying with her who live in the New Orleans area and lost everything.
All in all the Shreveport stations is covering the story well. I would say KTBS and KSLA are tied for the best coverage.
