Beau works at FOX16 and has done a great job. Beau will be leaving us this Friday and we wish him nothing but the best.

Having not seen the new guy yet I will not pass judgement on him, so the following question is in no way, shape, or form any kind of cheapshot at the new guy at 40/29: what's up with sports guys and the name Bo or Beau?

Bo has a great work ethic. Please. When he was at Channel 4, he constantly missed deadlines on stuff and hardly ever showed up anywhere on time. At least in his new market, he'll be forced to work. Great photog, horrible work ethic.

He's going to be on the air in Fayetteville..he was just a photog in Little Rock. Big differnce.

Maybe you don't watch Fox, because I saw him on-air quite a bit; several Razorback games, live from Las Vegas, etc... That seems like a reporter/photog position to me, which is probably what he'll have in Fayetteville.

If he is Rusty Jackson's replacement, then he will do Sun early and late shows, Sports Final, some sports reporting and occasional fill-in when either Lericos or Burleson bolt out of town.

Full time and part time are different...this is a full time on the air job that he'll e doing.

Even when he's full-time, he works like a part time reporter.

Call me cold hearted, but from watching this young man over the past week, he seems very inexperienced and unsure of himself on-air. I do see the praises for him on here, but I'll hold out my final judgment on Beau until he has been at the job six months.
