Elkins Out as ND at KTBS

This from Newsblues: "Shreveport insiders tell us Jan Elkins is out after six years as news director at crappy little KTBS-3-ABC, but she will remain with the family-owned station as Community Services Director.

Assignment Manager Randy Bain has been named interim ND.

Staffers claim bonehead decisions may have led to her removal. As Katrina roared ashore two weeks ago, it was Elkins's call to cut away from ABC live coverage and air syndicated Regis. She also kept the station's two live trucks parked."

Just an observation here, but I think the number of posts on this thread is indictive of how much the "Arkansas TV News" Blog-Nation cares about Louisiana TV.

Jan Elkins was and still is pretty clueless. She must have something on the KTBS owners... others have been canned for lesser things.

Jan has 2 years of General Assignment Reporter experience 15 times. How she has managed to stay at KTBS defies logic and reason. She must be a distant relative of the Wrays who own the station, that would explain her tenure.
