Improvement in Ratings Seen for KLRT in July

Arkansas Business.com reports KLRT's “Fox 16 News at Nine” saw a big improvement in July 05's numbers versus July 04. AB.com says, "In terms of household share, KLRT jumped about 20 percent higher and jumped as much as 71 percent in the age 25-54 demographic. "

Clear Channel GM Chuck Spohn tells AB.com, "“Fox 16’s July 2005 news ratings maintained incredible strength regardless of not having the American Idol lead-in. In other words, viewers are aggressively tuning in. We’re now one-and-a-half years old and gaining acceptance as a viable source of news each and every rating book.”

Better, but still irrelevant.

I wish KLRT would put an evening newscast up against the other LR stations. I bet it would give KATV, KARK and THV a run for their money.

Go Fox! Add a 6pm or morning show.

Yes, a local morning show to compete against GMA, Today, and whatever-is-on-CBS. It would lift KLRT once and for all into parity with the old line stations...then again, Nex$tar's tatics are helping :)

Irrelevant is a good adjective and they also have horrible technical problems every night. I've tuned them out now. FOX SUCKS. Except for the Simpsons and Family Guy. :)

I love their product. Great large market look. Their ratings are a trend that will probably continue. As far as technical problems, no more the other three.

Not only does Chuck Spohn have time to call Arkansas Business, he has time to post on this blog. Their look is not large market. You really should get out more often.

I have to agree with (Spohn) a bit. They do have the best look of the four stations out there, very slick. Anctious to see what show they'll add next.

Of course they are improving. They're starting from nothing. Until they are strong enough to go up against the big 3, there is really no way to gauge their success. By the way, it's important to note another reason they saw growth is because of a much stronger Fox lead in. The network is seeing its best ratings ever.

I do by the way know a pretty good deal about markets outside this bubble known as "Little Rock." The Fox look has always appealed to me, and if you would get out more, you'd see they have a look very similar to what you'd see in many top tens.
