Pearson on the Way Out at KTHV?

A tipster tells ATN, "Looks like Andy Pearson will be out when Dawn comes back."

THV announced several weeks ago former KTHV anchor Dawn Scott will return, thus leaving someone without a chair at the anchor desk. Many had assumed that whoever the person was that got the boot from the weekday evening anchor chair would take over the vacancy on the weekend. But as we all know now a replacement has already been found.

Scott is set to return to the THV anchor desk November 1st.

My sources tell me Andy makes a return to KATV and Scott will depart for his new gig as voice of the Razorbacks.

Say what you want about Andy's fatness, but that dude is a pro. He is fearless,smooth and seasoned. Having a all girl 5,6,10 is a HUGE mistake. I hope he shows back up in LR away from BOB JONES JESUS AUDUS and his hair.

KATV will never hire Pearson back, Why should they? Inmann is solid and Dale hates Andy. Once you leave tghe family you never come back, they just make fun of you at Christmas parties,

Remember this is just a RUMOR! If it is true, station management is making a HUGE mistake. Andy is hands down the strongest male anchor in the market. Inman is good but he's not in the same league as Andy. I agree that all women is a mistake. Hope it's not true-----if it is Audas may find that his departure has a far greater negative impact than any positives that are reaped by the return of Dawn Scott.
NO, this is not Andy.

WHAT?? Andy leaving? That is NUTS!! He's absolutely the only solid anchor in LR! This has to be some sort of crazy rumor?? I will have to say I wouldn't blame him if he did decide to leave. I mean who'd want to have all that estrogen around all the time...on top of Mark's(and others) childish ways. IF he has made that decision I'm sure he'll be happier. Getting to have a REAL life with normal hours and be with his kid. Why not? Heck, he'll have no trouble finding something..if he hasn't already. Everyone knows he's on the ball and has it together. Sure a few are jealous of his knowledge, presence and humility at the same time. If this is true I'll miss him like crazy but be happy for him not having to be around all that all the time.
...I'm just wondering what's next though? An all woman crew? Ha!! Craig is great at sports but could you take him seriously delivering the news in his tennis shoes making a funny face?? Sheeze....THV needs some psychotherapy and "thinkers"!! This is CRAAAAAAAAAAAZY!! Do they not know they're own assets?? If this rumor is true obviously not. Who would be dumba** enough to get rid of the best in the state mediawise??? Maybe if true it's his own decision... This is just way too much to even TRY and figure out. Loose screws in charge there!

Last poster made some good points. IF Andy is leaving, it could well be HIS decision. If this is management driven, they obviously doesn't know their assets from a hole in the ground. But last poster is right---who could blame him taking a better paying job with real hours in an industry where your co-workers dont spew the hate that is frequently seen on this blog. Many have left the industry and made highly successful transitions into the REAL world. If Andy hasn't considered this yet, maybe he should.

Apparently that last poster has never worked that closely with Andy. He shows up late, contributes little and then complains about quality during and after the newscast. How about taking some initiative and helping out before? I truthfully doubt there is any truth to this "rumor", but if there is it'll be a glorious day for most of the "support staff" at thv. What comes around goes around for folks like Andy. He'll get his due.

Did you call THV and ask them if this is true before you posted it on here? Let's not start rumors here. I agree that if they booted out Andy, they booted out the wrong person. THV needs to have their head examined. Who are you going to boot out next that I enjoy watching? Sounds like if you are a "favorite" on a personal level with Larry and Mark, you get promoted even if you are a no talent reporter/anchor, but if they don't like you personally and you are good at what you do, you're gone. I hope they like Tom and Robyn over there. I would hate to see them go next. This is CRAZY!

Okay.....THV support staff.....you have jobs because Andy, Liz, Anne, Ed, and Craig draw the viewers and the ad dollars as the faces of the station. Dawn had a whole lot to do with it back in a day...and will again soon!

You need to thank them! I have never heard such whiny babies since Dawn was hired back!!! WE KNOW YOU DO THE HARD LEGWORK...AND ALL THE ANCHORS DO IS READ YOUR WORK. But....and this is the key....THE ANCHORS ARE THE REASON PEOPLE WATCH KTHV, KATV, OR ANY OTHER STATION!

The anchors are the reason you have jobs. Be thankful...and mainly....grow up!!

I think THV has some management issues, allowing so many in their newsroom to continue working with the bad attitudes. When things get like this, the right thing to do is clean house and start fresh.

You need people working for you who are first and foremost grateful for their jobs. Secondly, they understand and accept their role in the organization. Thirdly, they need to respect their higher-ups and the on-air talent as the people who make the station what it is.

It sounds like there are a number of THV employees who don't qualify based on those principles...and need to go before things get worse and this hostility spills even more into the public arena. If that happens...everyone's jobs will be at risk.

I agree that support staff is extremely important. I can also tell you that many if not most in the "support" are not suportive at all at 11.

Where this becomes a problem is that right or wrong, 11 management has always given as much business credit and import to the people who make seven dollars an hour as they do the people who make six figures.

Everyone in the business world knows this is pure nonsense. No one argues that we're all equal as human beings, but people are not equal in capabilities and talents.

The caddy doesn't make equal pay as the golfer he supports, but the golfer would suffer without the caddy. It doesn't mean the caddy is nothing--unless he believes he's nothing. The whiners in 11's support team don't get this.

Eleven is constipated on this. They have people who have been there way too long, who have no new or modern ideas, who have never even worked at another station. They are in positions of influence and power. Their only claim to fame was they were good friends with Bob Brown and still know how to smooch the right people.

Local news is the only product any of these stations have. It is the reason most support staff have their jobs. It is the ONLY reason any anchor has a job.
You people are so ignorant, you believe the anchors are why people watch. Wrong,... News and weather is why they watch. Lie and mislead the viewers and see how long it takes them to change the channel irregardless of who reads it.

If you're so smart, why can't you convince your bosses to pay you more than an anchor? When was the last time you were invited to a parade? I see that you are a leader in the 11 "support staff."

It is so true that there are usually far bigger egos behind the camera than in front of it.

This is old news. His lack of contribution and the complaining pale in comparison to Anne J. When was the last time she helped a reporter find people to talk to or gave a story idea for the ten that became the lead?

When will the poor decision making stop at THV? Win Noble did not work out. No offense, but Liz Massey was not right for the job as main anchor (not personal, just from a business stand point.) Now they are getting rid of somebody who wins favorite anchor every year in all the polls. It does sound like politics is overriding talent and it will come back to haunt them.

The real problem at KTHV is Mark Raines. Why? He is one of those people that always wanted to be in front of the camera, but had no talent. So he did the only thing he is good at, being a YES-man.
He has no judge of talent, news judgement, or staffing. He will always point out the bad, make fun of the weak, say yes to ANYTHING any GM at KTHV says, and mainly play tetris for hours and hours.
The best days KTHV has is when that guy is on vacation.
There are only a few hateful people that make that place bad. The rest are great!!
Raines makes no move on his own...unless it's tetris!!

Politics overiding talent has already come back to haunt them. Win Noble turned out to be a scandal, and poor Liz Massey was given a position she was not ready for, and the ratings have suffered. Now they think Dawn Scott is the end all be all savior for THV, and for what they are paying her, they better be right.

Why does the viewer choose to get that info from a particular station?? could it be they like the people on the air at one station better than others??

I find it funny that there's all this talk about KTHV having issues, when KATV has 12 (that's right, a full dozen) positions open and listed on its website. Seems the real morale issues would be at 7, if no one's willing to stick around.

They may gripe at 11, but at least they're sticking around. Could it be that everyone's just waiting for Raines to be sent on his merry way?

Anyone else notice a few common threads in this blog?
Money....MONEYMONEYMONEY!!!!! Those who are equally important yet aren't paid as much are absolutely consumed with jealousy and greed. Either find your niche and enjoy it no matter what the pay just for the love of it or...and here's a new thought!... find a job(and educate yourself/make the sacrifices needed) and have at it! Make your own way. Be your own boss. Find your OWN life. Hell, find a life period!
Backstabbing. I must hand it to those of you in this business...err..I mean bs. Sounds like it would be something I'd love to wake up and look forward to everyday!OH BOY!YEHAW! Can't wait to get to work!
Insecurity. What you do is not who you are. Your job doesn't define you as a person. The defining is up to YOU as an individual. If you have issues with that and feel inadequate as a person, that you're not being paid what you're worth, hate those you believe to be "superior" to you....get help. There are many sites and orginazations ...or even some daily affirmations.....that could enhance your life and the way you view yourself as a person.

I hope you're reading this Andy as the chaos and immaturity at THV is palpable. If I were you I'd take myself out of such a moneygrubbing, backstabbing, envious, chaotic, mentally challenged and unsupportive environment so fast heads would spin. Your talent(yes folks, it takes a certain look, presence, personality, etc to be an anchor!) would be greatly appreciated in so many other places. Why put yourself in an environment that backstabs, criticizes and obviously has no life other than spending their free time sulking over not being able to be you.
THV has what's coming to it....and it's NOT gonna be pretty! When crazies are in charge....well, it all filters down. Waddaya expect? Go somewhere you're appreciated and where others aren't intimated like little whiney schoolgirls.
Just what sort of issues DO you people have anyway? Not all...you know who you are. Whatever they are resolve them or the rest of your life will only be more miserable and petty. I pity you.

Well put. As I have been saying, Andy should get out of this industry and go to work somewhere away from the jealous petty low lifes that spew their hatred and insecurities on this blog.

It must be fun to go to work everyday and not only worry about doing your job but also having to contemplate what the guy at the next desk is saying about you on this blog. There's no doubt in my mind that the volume and quality of the work product coming out of all 3 1/2 local newsrooms would improve greatly if management was smart emough to block access to this site.

I agree. Why are those "in charge" at THV not upfront with the viewers or those who work for them? Why must we all be in the dark? Could it be because they have no idea what they're doing?? (ya think??!) Could it be there is really no thought or game plan behind this so they are unable to tell us?? Or possibly they're wanting to run things mafia-style where the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing? Then too it's rather difficult to speak coherently when one has they're head up their a** so maybe we just can't hear or understand all the jabber.

But then this was in a SUPPORTIVE environment with other intelligent and open minded people.
Didn't you say you were part of the "support staff?" Ever read the definition of support?

Ok, "Support Staffers", I know they can't do it without you...you know they can't do it without you...and truth be told - the anchors know it too. So here's a thought...why are they paying that low dollar? Clearly, at the end of the day, someone pretty high up doesn't care if you are there or not - and isn't dangling any carrots in front of you either. Harsh fact, but it's the truth. So what's stopping you from leaving? There's good money out there in other industries...even in adjacent industries. If enough of you leave and are replaced by the next incompetent suckers, maybe the age-old "what if" questions will be answered. I submit that perhaps one thing keeps you there - pride. Maybe you should think hard about what industry you are so proud to be a part of.

I was thinking David Craft could do weather. He could start before the camera went to him, and instead of wrapping up, we could just cut is mic midway, and toss back to Denny. You could still hear him talking for about a minute wile Denny said he was sorry about his jabbering.
or Carol Phillips could do it. She could start by saying, "I don't really know much aobut weather, but hears what i've heard around the newsroom, don't tell anybody."

So anchors read. What do you do? Punch buttons or point a camera? Ride in the car to a story someone on the desk gave you? Oooh, aren't you the Opressed One.

Maroon, there's not one job in the TV biz that is digging ditches for eight hours a day.

Well it certainly didn't take much to set the hook in your mouth. The point is that if you take out any link in the chain, the machine will cease to run. If you want to get in a debate about pay, name one person in any newsroom who feels they are getting paid "what they're worth" - just one - I don't believe you can.

Maroon is one of my favorite colors BTW :)

Never watched Bugs Bunny, I guess. That explains a lot.

Oh, I know quite a bit about Bugs Bunny - unfortunately you don't know much about TV.

Okay bigshot, you list your credentials and I'll list mine.

I do believe you watch a lot of cartoons, though.

"Andy is the man."

And you my friend get the top blog post award! Those four words say it all! Andy is THE man and then some. Who else on the air has the credibility, name recognition, true talent, bankability,knowledge and trust of Arkansans in addition to experience(other than only in AR people.....seriously!?) and as well has passed the test of time other than Andy?!

THV has made more than enough bad decisions over the past few years. Hopefully this nasty little rumor will be put to rest soon. This is past the point of ridiculous...not to mention outright stupid. Listening THV??????? Isn't that what you say you do?! I(we) certainly hope so!

Expect the Jim Katchings announcement any day. They will run marketing for Dawn and Jim through October to build for November.

I guess that's why 11 has a big old commercial for November with all the current news team.

Give us a break on the Big Jim theory. He's either fictitous or a big no-name because he shows up no where on the net.

Of course, it may be true since 11 has done nothing but hire cheap no-names since Randy Hankins.

Jim Katchings? Recent graduate of Morrilton's votech school right? He should fit right in with the rest of the "team" you seem to have selected. Way to go THV!

Just who are you listening to these days anyway? Your little inner voices seem to be giving you some extremely mixed messages. You are coming across to us viewers as lost, inept, and even childishly silly with zero business brains. Let's just simplify that as "stupid."

It's obvious you don't know what's going on as by the posts those who work there haven't a clue either. Playing hide and seek in a dark room with nails and sharp objects covering the floor isn't much fun. For anyone.

And that's a reason to stay? No wonder you don't make anything. Devotion to one's job is one thing. Stupidity(where you fit in) a totally different element. Why do you care what happens if you're not being paid diddly to do it? Just lazy or are you truly that supportive? Your reasoning has no reasoning. I'd tell you to think about it but don't see that as possible.

Your ignorance hurts. If you would have been paying attention, you would have picked up on the fact that I was merely tring to make a point. Read my post at 12:24am on 9/25.

As far as the truth goes, we all have our crosses to bear - I can't think of one person that I've ever worked with in this business who got into it for the money. Working in TV is for the love of your craft - it's for meeting those people in the field and telling those stories that you'd never have an opportunity to tell in any other occupation. If you got into TV to get rich, you're a fool, and I pity you - however, if you are passionate about your work, as I am, it shouldn't matter how much you're paid. All that matters to me at the end of the day is that I have enough money to put food on my family's table. I respect and get along with everyone in my newsroom - regardless of their stature in the food chain. If you are in it for the money - GET OUT NOW, and make room for someone who loves what they're doing. I still think you're an idiot, BTW.

I believe there was also a post that today the jim promos would start today.
Are you confused, getting a kick out of lying or just plain stupid? My guess is all of the above. No little jimmy anywhere in sight today. What's the deal mr. thinkiknowitall?
Did you seriously think we believed your posts?? sheeze!
