UPDATED: KTHV Gets New On Air Talent

This from the Bull Whiz Newsletter: "KTHV has hired Sherryl Lackey as a new on-air talent to work with B. J. Sams. Watch for her to be on the air in October."

Could the BullWhiz tipster have made a typo and meant Sheryl Lackey from WB 42 in Little Rock?

Update: 9:15pm KTHV GM Larry Audas confirms the hire to ATN: "Indeed Today’s THV has hired Sheryl Lackey, formerly with WB 42 in Little Rock. BJ Sams will continue to anchor the news at noon while Tom Brannon and Becky Ditchfield bring us up to date with the latest weather. Sheryl will follow with community events, happenings and matters of interest to noon hour viewers."

She's actually not going to be a news person or associated with B.J. She'll have a strictly 15 minutes of schlock and then the other 15 will be for feal news. At least that's what one of their sales people told me. Needless to say, I didn't buy.

Sheryl is a lovely lady... apparently none of you have ever worked with her. She'll do fine.

She thinks that she has "Karen Fuller" talent. But I have seen her on WB and she's not that good at all. I hope KTHV know what there getting.

As is usually the case with KTHV folks - never heard of her . . . .

Uh, yeah we have. That's why we're thanking our lucky stars we don't work for THV. And that we don't watch it. Won't have to change our viewing habits.

she is a great gal and very hard worker. She did a lot for classing up Equity Broadcasting and while they may often choose to ignore many rules and regulations, she operates by the book and with much higher standards. That is why it was HER decision to leave that company. KTHV should be congratulated for hiring someone of her caliber.
The company she comes from has as their signature shows programs like: Cheaters, Confessions,Elimidate, to name a few. Not to mention the full scale brawls in the building. Welcome to KTHV a class act.

The 15 minute show is called "Positively Arkansas." Clients of TodaysTHV have to pay for a 3 minute segment to push their product - $300-$500 for 3 minutes. The show will have no mention of TodaysTHV - don't want to blur that jounalistic line - not that THV knows what it is. The sales/marketing gurus at THV thought this would be a great idea to get in more "non-traditional" revenue. What they don't tell their client is that Miss Lela from Camden - who is 80 years old and in love with B.J.- has no interest in their product. The other 100 people that watch - probably won't either.

Anonymous, Anonymous, Anonymous...anyone have the guts to leave their name while they're badmouthing? I have known this woman since she was a little girl and I think the problem all the anonymous' have is that they are of a worldly frame of mind and this young lady has the highest Godly standards and she lives by her convictions. I have nothing but respect for her and for what she stands for. Hi Sheryl!
