Former KATV Weatherman Guest Hosts on KARK AM Progam



Yet another familiar face popped up on Arkansas TV screens Monday morning as Ron Sherman filled in for Mike Frances on KARK's morning program. An e-mailer says Sherman pulled a short stint at KARK in 1970 before heading on over to KATV.

I think you meant "stint," but "stunt" does seem applicable too.

Ron Sherman will do anything to stay "in front" - stint or stunt - doesn't really matter, he has to keep his admirers thinking he's actually a nice guy - yeah right!

Maybe KARK is trying to keep up with KTHV when they brought Beth Ward back to fill in.

The only people that still like Ron Sherman are the ones who he has not stepped on to get what he has or have not worked for him yet!

No, no NO. Tom Bonner has to be the next old timer that makes a come back. I'm sure KARK still has some of those Coke boxes for the midget to stand upon.

As a twenty something year old viewer I agree with part of the above comment. I am glad to see past tv faces. They are some of the people I grew up watching as a child. Kudos to KARK & KTHV for using past talent. I personally would like to see more past faces (Woodman,Bonner,Preston,Barnes etc.)!

Also, No I do not work at any of the stations. I am just a fan of local news.

Sometime ago, Dave Woodman appeared on what is now KARK 4 Today after he retired from the station.

Channel 4's heyday was back in the Mitchell, Long, Bonner, and Woodman days.

A hate to tell you.. the old guys were young guys when they were on the air. You're just getting older and today's on air talent seems younger.

Maybe we could bring back 8 track tapes or even record players. I've got an old leisure suit I've been dyind to pull out of the closet.

If we keep trying to bring back the past, pretty soon we will have no future.

I agree - these guys had thier day and some of them like Ron have turned that into a pretty good living outside of local TV.

Do you really want these people back on the air? Especially knowing what we now know about some of them being drunks, cheaters and just plain mean to the people that work for them.

Mind you not all of them are that way, but if Vic, Gary, Steve Barnes or Ron came back on the air I for one would not watch them - their personal behavior and character sucks!

Bring Back Bonner! Bonner OWNED the Weather back in his day. It'd be great to see him square off just once against Neolithic Ned!

Another twenty something viewer and I couldn't agree more. Bonner, Woodman, Mitchell and Long were great broadcasters. Watching them you could sense the pride they had in their product and how much they enjoyed bringing the news to their loyal viewers. Remember Color the Weather and Hog Eye 4?

Thank you, sensei.

Little Rock news was more polished back in the day. Now it's all about $$ and who they can hire for nothing. Funny, KATV never brings back ol' talent. Wonder why?

Does anyone remember Susan Roberts who is now with CBS News? She did the morning show, left for New Orleans, I believe, then came back again to do the morning show. I think that was in the early 90's when Melinda Mayo was on KARK's morning show.

Susan Roberts was ok - I am really surprised that she went as far as she did?

She did not fit this market very well.

This picture is so typical of the "TV" Ron!!!

I wonder what he would do if the really Ron was shown?

If you really know so much, why don't you just say it. Otherwise, it sounds like baloney to me.

You people crack me up - you act like these people are saints because they are on TV. Get a life!!! They are human. Most of them with huge ego's that need to be pumped up or they are not happy.

What you see on TV is not what is always real. I have heard some real horror stories from more than a few people that have worked for Ron over the years and from what I can gather the other posters are right - he is a real jerk at times.

But I guess living in the past lala TV land is much nicer for you?

Tom Bonner was a big influence on me. I got my weather merit badge in Boy Scouts because I was impressed with Tom's meteorological skills.

Where would you rather live: in the past with Beth Ward and company or in the present with Sheryl whats-her-name and Michelle Rupp? I rest my case.

Ron Sherman roundhouse kicked Chuck Norris in the face and then sold him siding.

Ron Sherman's tears cure cancer. Too bad he's never cried.

It would be one thing if he wasn't an altogether terrible personality on camera, but the fact that he fills in on a station whose main thrust is locality, then proceeds to brag about the weather in Michigan!

Thanks for trying to set the station back, Ron!

Wow, Color the Weather! I had forgotten about that. You could pick up your color sheets at McDonald's and then mail them in to the station. That was a great time. I miss those days.

I don't remember Hog Eye 4...

At least they are attempting to promote their station and giving an effort. (I Laughed the first time I saw it!) KATV would not know what a promo was even if it bit them in their tight butts!
