Hatton is also formerly of KAIT as a reporter/fill-in anchor. Will he be on air any in his new role?

Doug Doggett got out of the business, more or less, though he's subbed weather over a few holidays, as have Trey and Mark Frankum (who owns a flight school).

Doug's real job is PR for NEA Medical Center.

DOUG DOGGETT IS THE PR PERSON FOR ST BERNARDS IN JONESBORO, NOT NEA

When will Mitch Lilly finally leave KAIT for a big market? He is a fantastic sports anchor and deserves a shot at a larger station.

So where is Tiffany going? I thought she was a good fit for KAIT...similar to Diana Davis in many ways.

Mark Tucker is a pharmaceutical rep for Pfizer, and is the lead singer in a rock'n'roll cover band.

Tiffany is marketing/PR director for Eden Medical Spa in Jonesboro.

Well she was much better suited to work in a beauty shop than on TV. She was really a sad show and lots of rumors about her were making the rounds.

Thanks heavens Tiffany is gone! Couldn't take the rolling eyes and the cutesy smile--not a good style for anchor. Glad that Hatton Weeks is back on board...good guy, should be an asset! Look forward to seeing him on air...I was one of his former teachers at ASU--good student, honest, and again--should be an asset!

I can't really think of anyone who really cares what goes on at KAIT.
Andrea Morrow, Tiffany Blankenship, Brad Bean, Marsha Mays.... Where are any of those people? Furthermore, the talent continues to decline. When the most unattractive girl I've ever seen with a high pitched voice starts leading your newscast, you're in trouble.
Brad Bean was a good reporter. Tiffany Blankenship was a young Diana Davis. People loved to put Diana down in her younger years as well. Bottom line, Tiffany and Diana are good at what they do.
I don't know where Tiffany is but I'd like to see her return. She's very good. And often talked about because she's good looking. very.

That girl that took her place, Heather Flanigan is sad. She messes up all the time.
Tiffany seemed very real. I thought she was a natural talent and do agree she is very good looking!!!!!!

Tiffany Blankenship is BEAUTIFUL.
She was extremely good and smart.
I do think that people loved to hate her because she was so pretty.
If anything she was too good for KAIT.

Heather Flanigan is worse than sad. I have to change the channel when she is on. She is completly fake and unbearable. Sure wish KAIT would get more professional reporters. I enjoy Diane Davis and her partner but Heather is just plain annoying. Maybe Tiffany could come back.

Tiffany Blankenship will not come back to KAIT. She was extremely hard to work with and had a pre-madonna attitude. She completely ignored her superiors and refused to take the advice of consultants. She does not belong in TV.

Was wondering what happened to the black man that used to give tyhe weather? I don't remember his name.

Is Mark Tucker still in Nea?

Tiffany Blankenship may have looked good in front of the camera but what she did behind the scenes is what got her in trouble. She would do what ever it took to get to the top.....or to stay on top...and that will soon catch up with you....she blew it...

Sounds like another bleach blonde pre-madonna has got her claws out. Heather Flanigan isn't the only bad reporter at Kait-TV. Kait is notorious for hiring young inexperienced so called reporters for cheap. Anybody that wants to see their face on TV can get a job there. I guess they think we country bumpkins aren't worthy of experienced, mature reporters who take pride in their work. At least Tiffany Blankenship is pretty. Maybe Heather Flanigan is the one that needs a job at a beauty shop.

Tiffany Blankenship is beautiful. She just had a baby and is married. I think that experience has left her a changed woman. I know for a fact she wouldn't come back to KAIT. She actually works for Suddenlink Media.
She is more gorgeous than ever and one of Suddenlink's top billers. I bet finally making money is way better than working with the losers at KAIT! She's so much better than that. Her name is Tiffany Napier now. I did business with her recently and she's one of the nicest people I've ever met.

I thought Tiffany was a very talented anchor. I've been seeing her is a few cable commercials.

Interesting that some people chose to judge others reputations..Buzz around town is that another of the bleached blonds at KAIT has quite a reputation too. Not an admirable one either. Of course it's Heather Flanigan. I don't think I've ever heard anyone say anything inspirational or good about her. Will KAIT ever get decent reporters? Seems most there over estimate the value of their jobs. They are reporters not celebrities. Get Real!!

It's funny how the post above said Tiffany "blew it." Blew what, 20,000 dollars a year in the worst small market in television? She was one of the best talents KAIT had. Looks like KAIT is the one that blew it! To credit the above post: she is a very nice person. How old was she when she left KAIT anyway? She was really young when she was there from what I remember.

I saw her at a Walgreens once, she was smokin' ! The best looker KAIT has seen in awhile (although Yolanda Young is a not hard on the eyes either). Good to know that she is doing well.

How bout Laura Huckabee. She got Trey Stafford to notice her and used him and his radio station that led to KAIT but once she thought she was too BIG TIME for Jonesboro, she bailed on Trey and left for greener pastures. She is one who would do whatever or whoever it takes to move ahead.

To whom it may concern: "pre-Madonna" is only means before Madonna. The word you are searching for that means diva is "prima donna." Jeeeeez!
