Nexstar Working with Comcast to Keep KARK on Cable in LR
Pretty article over at Arkansas Business.com about the fight to keep KARK on cable in the Little Rock market. To sum it up, Nexstar exec Duane Lammers blames the other stations in Little Rock for keeping the stink stirred up that KARK will be leaving Little Rock cable come January 1, 2006. KARK GM Rick Rogala doesn't beat around the bush who is stirring up the stink. Check out this quote from the article:
“You have some television stations in that marketplace that are trying to confuse the advertisers and use our position against us, which is very unfortunate and very unprofessional, and it’s just too bad,” Lammers said. “But that’s just kind of what I would expect from people like Allbritton. I hope you quote me on that.”
Of course Allbritton is the parent company of KATV. Read the full article HERE.
