4 Covers All Corners of the State With Winter Weather Coverage

I have to say I only saw a few minutes of weather coverage this morning on KARK BUT they did have it happening. 4 was my only choice as for some reason KATV was black and KTHV's signal was non-existant on my cable system. BUT 4 really was covering all the bases. An e-mail had this to say:

"Good to see Arkansas channels making weekend weather important. i woke up around 6:30 and was impressed to see channel 4 all over the state. 7 had a LR reporter and i didn't check 11, but I didn't go to Fort Smith after watching the morning coverage...way to go."

Being one that would critize Channel 4 at any moment, I must say for the last 24 hours, Channel 4 really has been my Weather Authority. Their coverage after the Olympics was splendid, and I couldn't believe how impressive their coverage was this morning. The reporters (all except for Anchor Sore Tonsils or whatever her name is) were splendid and so professional and informative. I look forward to the new set talked about in an earlier post and I may try Channel 4 more, but for now their set hurts my eyes and is tacky. I love the new graphics though, and will watch their news tonight.

Now, if they just had a KARK2 like THV2.

KNWA jumped on the KARK train, as well. While they did not start as early, I woke up to amazing coverage this morning. They had an hour show from 7 to 8, which I left on while I did other things, but from what I saw, they had Jason Dollard doing weather, several times, and then Dana Sargent talking to numerous reporters all over the state (5, if I remember correctly), as well as tower cams. It looks like KNWA and KARK rocked the winter weather this morning with sheer coverage statewide.

way to go ch.4.they are doing so much more with less that it is just making 7 and 11 sick!I clicked through the coverage and they were everywhere,Ned as usual had that pissed off attitude that he was even having to work on a Saturday and 11s' weather girl and token reporter was just weak.In the spirit of the Daytona 500 weekend I hope 4 keeps it to the floor.

Ya'll must've not seen KFSM's coverage this morning. 2 hours and 3 reporters giving live coverage, and triple teaming from the weather guys. Seems like they definitely ruled the NWA part of the state.

THV did manage to pull one interesting trick. In addition to frequent updates on THV2, they somehow got Comcast to give THV2 a digital channel. Don't know if it's permanent, but it surprised the heck out of me, given how slow Comcast usually is to add digital content. I wonder if that sets some kind of precedant, since cable usually doesn't want to get into carriage of the multi-cast content.

40/29 seemed to have quite a plan going too. It was just cut-ins twice an hour, but seemed to have the best coverage in my opinion in Fort Smith. Everyone working chipped in and did their part and more. We had News Directors running tapes, CamOps helping produce and take care of closings and much much more. I work for 40/29 and want to say EVERYONE who worked overnight and into this morning did and extraordinary job and I commend every single person there.

What is up with Channel 7? Their coverage of the storm and their broadcasts don't have the same feel they once did. To put it plainly their coverage has grown stale. Their storm coverage was uninspired. Someone has their act together at 4.

KNWA was clearly a satellite for KARK during the snow, which is fine if that was the master plan. Their focus, though, was much more on the state than on the local market. They also were late getting on the air with coverage.

KFSM did a very solid job of coverage starting at around 5 a.m. Three meteorologists and two reporters on live. Looked good.

I'm curious as to 40/29's logic. They really lagged behind the other two on this one. It seemed a strange move with as much promotion as they pour on winter weather coverage.

The ratings will decide who was right, though, as they always do.

I'm curious why you say they lagged? Do you not remember that 40/29 did cut-ins on the top and bottom of the hour on Saturday through 10:00 a.m.? They were the last station doing reports if I remember correctly. They started at 6:00 a.m. with their GMA weekend show, and continued to do regular updates. They had a meteorologist and two reporters covering the event. How is that lagging? Staying on the air and babbling all the time is overkill, get over it. KFSM reported the same stuff over and over, get your facts straight.

Considering KNWA got off the air and never was heard from again for the rest of the morning....figure that one out. 40/29 did regular updates through 10 a.m. Channel 5 did the same thing, they just ended and never did any morning follow ups....and where has KNWA been on Sunday morning? Your main county is getting hammered with snow..and you clowns don't have a weather bug up. I see how it works..the olymipics take over personal safety. That's a good way to go!

Advertiser's want more than numbers, they want people to walk through the door and spend money. If you can't help them grow their business, then you're worthless. But then again, most sales people aren't smart enough to figure that out.

Winter weather coverage in general is way overblown and overkill in the business anyway. Ooohhhhh, it's snowing/sleeting outside - BIG FLIPPIN' DEAL! So don't get out and drive in it! Common sense tells you 99% of what these idiots spend 5 hours doing while interrupting programming unecessarily. I'm trying to watch the USA/Sweden hockey game this morning while KNWA is scrolling business closings over the bottom 3rd of the screen - forget the fact that part of the hockey game occassionally takes place in that part of the screen - but that's OK, I really need to know that Bella Vista United Methodist Church isn't having services this morning. It doesn't help things any that KNWA's signal is absolute CRAP for Dish subscribers. I don't need it further complicated by an overblown and oversized business closings crawl which almost hinders the viewers' picture on almost the bottom half of the screen.

Winter weather coverage is not the same as tornado coverage. The sooner the business realizes that, the better. Interupting programming or putting crawls on for T-storm/tornado coverage is one thing. Putting it on for freakin' sleet/snow storms is pathetic and sad - not to mention unnecessary. Anyone who needs a talking-head to tell them to stay off the roads or to be careful in sleet/snow - for 5 hours in a row - is an uneducated, retarded loser . . . . . it's called thinking for yourself and using common sense . . . . .

If our CamOps produced a show (especially breaking news) I would refuse to work. Porn movies are better produced than a CamOp producing.

It was written by someone who doesn't give a rip about ratings but about programming, Olympics or not, being unecessarily interupted by people standing out in the snow telling viewers that . . . . . . it's snowing. Big freakin' deal. You need to have your head examined if you think advertisers give a rip when purchasing time on a station whether or not their ad is going to be seen during severe/winter weather coverage. I'm pretty sure Steve Landers didn't see the forecast for snow this past weekend and run up to KNWA/KARK just to purchase advertising time because he knew it would get seen more. Get a clue.

Whatever. That has never happened and never will. If things were that bad, the people who were on stand-by would've been called in to work. If there is a possibility of something going to happen, there are always people who are trained ready to be called in so people who aren't trained don't have to do it.

"Steve Landers buys based on cost per point ratings delivery.

Steve Landers is a used-car salesman - literally. He's a mo-mo who believes whatever a station sales executive tells him. He has no clue about TV advertising and has no idea what a "cost per point ratings delivery" means, so don't try and convince me that he does. He has "X" amount of dollars set aside in his budget for advertising, so he just gives that to the station and then asks when he needs to show up to run his mouth in front of a green screen.

As for the Olympics, I never said they were getting stellar ratings. I agree completely - it's pretty sad when the Olympics get beat out by a loser show like American Idol. While I enjoy hockey, I think all programming on all stations is unecessarily interupted by winter weather coverage. It's just not the same as a tornado coverage.

Severe weather with tornadoes on the ground in your DMA is one thing, but winter weather doesn't typically change in the matter of seconds. I guess from some of these posters, the only way you can win is with 3 meteorologists that banter back and forth with each other. In my opinion, the only thing that will win is a click of my remote.

What breaking news? It was snowing outside - big flippin' deal! The bigger breaking news should have been our inadequate and inferior road crews who sit on their a$$es for 2 days and do the bare minimum or nothing at all. I love how Mike Duncan was on KNWA praising the road crews in Fayetteville for what a great job they did. Way to go KNWA - why don't you put Beth Hogan (or whatever her name is) and your pathetic Benton County bureau to work on a real story of how most of Benton county didn't get crews out on the roads to do any SIGNIFICANT and MEANINGFUL street clearing until Monday!

But what about covering the biggest snow event of the season in the WRONG way.

Which station had two weathermen talking about SPORTS over a weather graphic? If it was such a significant event that needed full wall-to-wall coverage, why do that? And if the roads were so horrible, why have your reporters do countless live hits about how "beautiful" the snow is? And about waiting for a break for a chance to make a snow angel?

KFSM had two weather guys wasting viewer's time...but that shouldn't make this a non-event. I think KFSM showed how overkill can be done; however, with that being said, half a foot of snow in the mid-south is a huge story. No matter how stupid some people can be....

Actually KFSM had 3 meteorologists telling viewers about a half foot of snow.

Ratings will tell if they wasted their time or not.

Who cares about ratings? It's not like it's the end-all be-all
