Where Are They Now

Sarah Zapp is in the spotlight.

Past interviews have included Attorney General John Ashcroft while he was Senator of Missouri, Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, and Governor Mel Carnahan and Senator Christopher Bond, both of Missouri.

In addition to her political experience, Sarah has also been an award-winning health reporter and was named Best TV Personality while anchor and host for KARK-TV in Little Rock.

What's Sarah doing now? She is host of New England Newsmakers on C-8, The Comcast Channel Network in Boston, Mass.

Sarah is the spotlight... hasn't been a better morning show person in a long time. Anyone who thinks Beth Hunt is good.... well, not when compared to Sarah.

The above poster is right... they did give the 10 p.m. anchor to Christina, right?

I don't watch KATV news, but I do watch the local news on Headline News and Beth Hunt is the anchor. I do not think she is that good. It always sounds like she has the microphone right at her mouth and you can hear lisps. Drives me nuts. I think they made a mistake when they got rid of the other blonde for Beth.

I think we're talking about the Beth Hunt on KATV... used to be a reporter.. now on the morning show.

Have you seen her photos on the station website? Somehow she's gotten even thinner... and grown out that hair. Wow !

Sarah could do the KARK morning show... by herself... and it be a huge improvement over Barbara and Mike. She really has the personality to make a show work.

Don't know.... maybe by the Arkansas Time or something? Or maybe by a vote of her fan club?

So what if she pads her resume? 90% of female reporters in Little Rock use padding every night!

Sarah is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet and the utmost professional to work with. For her to leave a great job to be with her husband while he went back to get his masters says to me that her priorities are in the right place. I am very proud of her and happy to see that she's doing so well.

I totally agree... she is a class act and Little Rock lost a fine journalist and a fine person. The above poster works at KARK, right?

I voted her "Best TV Personality" in my own poll... don't know if she won any others. Wanna know who came in last place? :o)

I happened to be at the station one day for business when to my suprise she was sent to greet me in the lobby. She was one of the most dynamic and professional folks I've come across. She left a lasting impression - after that I made sure to tune into her show.

I'm finding myself not watching the Today Show because Mike is so damn goofy during the weather cut ins. In fact, the other morning during a taped segment - well, he's just awful. He makes Tom Brannon at 11 seem mild.

You are right... Mike is goofy. I get the idea he has on clown shoes down below the camera. Barbara would be better just doing the show by herself... or bring in Tracy.

You know Tracy is doing a really good job. I liked her back in the 80's and she brings on air maturity to the desk. Even when she does the chat before and after the weather segments I get the feeling she should be having the conversation with Roy or Carolyn...it's just much much more professional.

Tracy should have a conversation with Barbara... and leave Mike out of it. But who is KARK trying to pull in with all these "mature" personalities?

I don't know. What do you think? My favorite talent on 4 is Bob and Jancey followed by Tracy. They have some good reporters, too. Better question: Who are they trying to attract with Barbara and Mike - geez.

And who are they trying to attract on the weekends with Alice ????

Mike got lucky... because the only person more AWFUL in the Little Rock market would be Ernie... so they've stuck him with late-night reporting where it's okay when he puts viewers to sleep !

Oh yeah, Alice...don't get that one either - she makes me want to watch Pam Smith

The best weekend anchors, in order, are:

1 - Win Nobel
2 - Pam Smith
3 - Alice Stewart
4 - Whoever works at Fox
