Breaking News?

An e-mailer sends ATN this:

"Interesting to see that 7,11, and 16 carried the implosion of the UAMS dorm live this morning. However, channel 16 will never learn.... they, of course, over-hyped the coverage calling it breaking news... they also are still calling YESTERDAY's ice storm breaking news. Two hints for them 1)a planned event is not breaking news 2)an ice storm that happened Friday night/Saturday morning is not breaking news on Sunday morning. Now if you'd have done your show Saturday morning when it was going on like channel 4... then it would have been breaking news."

I did not watch the Fox coverage of the implosion but they did interrupt prime time programming Sat nite for several minutes to tell viewers that the radar was ALL CLEAR!! The break-in was followed with a tag that the live updates were sponsored by Law Offices of Gary Green.
Their management clearly do not get it. Whomever is making the calls to break into programming must think that viewers are not smart enough to recognize worthless hype. It's like the little boy who cried wolf---but what happens if viewers decide to change channels to confirm the news is really important....will they change back??????

Did anyone see the bumper from Fox 16, that said something to the effect of "When winter weather threatens to cripple Arkansas... Fox 16 is there first."

Uh.... yeah... ice fell from the sky, but "cripple" Arkansas?? Not so much.

Talk about overuse of 'breaking news' speak.

Jeremy Baker looks forward to his time in Arkansas and is ready for whatever Mother Nature has to offer So he can push more and more people away from 16 each and every weekend.

In his spare time, Jeremy likes to stay in shape by bowling, bad forecasts, and big ears. In addition to running and weight training.  He is also an animal lover.

KATV's morning show people just don't get it. They think that looking good means ratings. They do NOT connect with their viewers.

I agree. KATV will sustain a certain amount of viewers by just posting a test pattern. Their AM show is receiving the ratings and shares it deserves - a very few! Poor Dixon having to do it Dale's way. Won't be long til that P.O.S. AM show at KARK will top KATV's. And what's with the crappy billboards? ABC paying for part of them...a 6 foot picture of Melinda's Mug...Charlie looks better with that crease in his head...crappy
