KLRT Anchor/Reporter Jumps Ship

This from a tipster: "No clue if you already know or not, but Kim Betton has left Fox16 for channel 4. She never signed a contract so there is no noncompete issue. She is already onboard and will be on air shortly."

> Arkansas TV News has confirmed Betton has joined KARK.

I saw Kim's report Tuesday at 5 & 6. She is very good. She was not used properly or enough at Fox 16. I hope she gets an opportunity at KARK to show her talent. Great hire for KARK.

And Kim is a total sweetheart. She'll surely be missed at FOX16.

I don't know her at all, but as a viewer, she seems very bias to me. Not a great hire for KARK.

Biased? How so?

She really is very good. Between that and being a local, she should go far in this market. It is great that she is at a real news station now. To be underutilized with a bio like that is a crime. KARK got lucky.

I would like to thank KARK for answering my question. I e-mailed them Friday and this morning I recieved a very detailed and professional response. I feel they are really trying to move away from the "News 4" of past.

I know my comment does not deal with Ms. Benton.
