Another Anchor Flies the Coop at KTAL;KTBS Bringing Video to the Web

ATN told you first about a month ago Shawn Patrick would be leaving the anchor desk at KTAL in Shreveport. His pic and bio has been taked off the station's website. The tipster said Patrick left for KUSA/Denver.

> Also a tipster says KTBS will soon be debuting a new website complete with online video

about time, ktbs. ksla has had streaming video for more than a year. ktal, by comparison, is lucky if its stories on the web are spell-checked. and fact-checked. no wonder it lost both its main anchors in two months.

KFSM will likely be losing a main anchor too. Remember, don't drink and drive.

Anyone know who's rumored to take Shawn's place at KTAL? I hear John Dennison from a station in Monroe.

Going from KNOE to KTAL may be moving up in markets, but at KNOE, John has it easy. All he has to do is show up and their news beats KTVE. If he goes to KTAL, he'd have to work hard and rebuild his entire credibility. Plus if he leaves, that could allow KTVE to move up in numbers.

All the crazy posts here are hard to read....First of all John Dennison is the producer/anchor/graphics man in Monroe.
Second, 2 main anchors who worked at ktal both for more than 6 years moving to Denver isn't a bad thing. How many anchors have gone top 15mkt from 3 or 12?
Lastly,
KTVE will be bad if they have naked Swiss pagent queens for anchors. Nobody watches them.
KTVE is making great stides from where they were in years past. But like KTAL, to bad for 2 long.

Please think about this for a moment...Call it part of a new years resolution, but as a changed man the postings on this blog often get to me...and I have to say something. Our jobs are difficult enough, why spend so much time bashing your colleagues. Maby it's because you are so insecure about yourself and your own abilities, that you have to try and bring down others to feel better about yourself. Please think about that the next time you post something negative about another journalist. Instead, you should focus on improving yourself..and your work. Please spend some time thinking about this...

KTVE will soon be moving up anyway. Viewers are in for a shocking change at the end of the month.

IT DOESNT MATTER!!! EL Dorado is a crap hole, move your tower to Ruston, blow out LATECH sports and Ruston rich folks and win against KNOE.
