Shreveport Stations Cover Texarkana Train Derailment

The Shreveport stations are experiencing a busy weekend already as they cover a train derailment and explosion at the Union Pacific railyard in Texarkana. From what I have read on the WWW, the incident occured around 5am Saturday morning. I am sure the incident was covered before I finally awoke at 10am. Anyway, at 10am KTBS, Channel3 was the only station providing LIVE coverage of the incident while all the others were just running a crawl informing of the latest. KTBS broke away from LIVE coverage at around 10:20am.

UPDATE: CNN has picked up the story and is using video from KLSA on the air.

both KTAL and KSLA had also already broken in with live cut-ins by the time you apparently woke up at 10am. I believe both started those around 8.

KTHV had great coverage of the train wreck... Ann Pressley basically did the entire thing herself. Impressive

Can you believe NOBODY tried to deep-throat a corn-dog on the air during the state fair? What bonehead missed that opportunity?

If the train had not derailed, it wouldn't have been much of a story.

This won't succeed in actual fact, that is what I believe.
