KATV Airs Infomercial in PrimeTime

I actually saw this too, but an e-mailer reminded me. On Tuesday KATV ran an infomercial instead of regular ABC programming. The e-mailer states the infomercial started at 7:30pm...but I was thinking it came on at 7pm. I could be wrong as I was flipping through trying to find some severe weather coverage.

Make fun of Equity, Nexstar and Clear Channel all you want but KATV is by far the worst in the market to work for. Technology is lagging, knee jerk firing when ratings are bad and we could go on and on. This place is going down hill even quicker than what we all think.

Equity can't even form their own local news departments with out the INN (Independent News Network) producing it,but Equity is a good company and it serves a great purpose.However I think Nexstar and Clear Channel do a good job on News programing. I would agree KATV is diffenltly going down from what it used to be. Their haven't updated their news set and desk since 2000 or before.Personally I think KATV is losing ground to KTHV,KARK, and FOX 16. It is sad to say but times are changing.

one last thing on channel 7's website is the video vault,I really like it.I always find it fun to look back on the past and I think it is really neat how it has old video dating back to the 1970's

That's not old video it's last night's newscast. Just a joke! At Equity's defense, there are a lot of really good stations that make a great profit that don't carry news. Sorry to burst your bubble but more people still watch more prime than they watch news.

When your sales department can't make budget. You have to make up all the money you can. After May expect to see more paid in prime.

The morning show war is good for the viewers. All three stations are working harder and doing more.

They also aired infomercials during prime time, booting according to jim and notes from the underbelly wednesday night. When asked, the station said they didn't know and blamed the fact that some of the engineers were either sick or short staffed.

They should have showed Beth Hunt and Ann Pressly mud wrestling.

"They should have showed Beth Hunt and Ann Pressly mud wrestling."

Great ideal that or oil wrestling with Kristin Fisher as special guest referee.

All three of them are goddesses.

Dude,

What do you think THV's Positively Arkansas is?

It's more focused on revenue than ratings. Not a bad thing, just the direction the business is headed.

Infomercials pay bills, but it won't last forever.

I agree, Kristen Fisher is the best looking female in the LR market. I hope she sticks around.

That's the only thing positive at channel 7... the past.

I don't have a clue but the woman host of that program has got to be kin to some bigwig at that station to be on ANY show.

Those of you who think Beth Hunt and the rest are fine must be smoking crack. They might look good in a country sort of way but by no means are they really beautiful.

1:36 ... Thankfully there are people like you with low standards... so we can keep the redneck population blossoming. It must be an evolutionary mandate that rednecks think country looking ladies are fine to keep the world in rednecks. Although the true purpose of increasing the redneck population still remains a mystery. Enjoy your mediocrity! Thanks for playing.

8:41...I bet you're a real fox. I would love to see what you look like.
Oh and by the way what the heck is "country fine". Only a redneck himself would say something stupid like that.
If you think Beth Hunt and Kristen Fisher aren't hot you're either blind or just stupid.

Actually, it's "country fried." Only a city slicker would not know that.

There is no damn excuse for KATV to be airing *any* informercials during prime time.

Period!

I saw it come on that night and turned the television off... Because of all the conservative, pro-fundamentalist Christian protestant, pro war, pro lassez-faire capatalist, pro authoritarian rubbish that permeates all local and local news programming in this market, I turn off the TV when anything other than network programming is on. When I want local news, I turn on my radio and listen to the NPR station. It has a lot of local propaganda too, but it's not nearly as nasty, right-wing, or as thoroughly permeated.

I may just throw out my antenna and just use the TV for watching DVDs because the Little Rock local TV market has nothing on that isn't virulent right-wing propaganda or just garbage.

EVERYTHING right winged is garbage... Republicans lost their majority in both houses of Congress because Bush couldn't focus on the real war on terrorism so he could get Saddam's head on a pike for daddy... And apparently Little Rock is full of moronic SHEEPLE... I cant wait for January 20, 2009 when Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama restores some semblance of sanity to this half-dozen year farce of government that Bush has STOLEN from us you fascist REPUGNICAN PIGS

Let's see....How did some many Republicans get in there in the first place. Clinton drove voters to elect a Rep, controlled Congress. Nice name calling but that's how our system works. Americans are never happy with what we have and the grass is greener on the other side. That's why when times get tough we panic and then go back to balance. You jackass' are all the same.

Whoever the moron was that said that KATV was owned by Equity is just plain ignorant. They are owend by Allbritton

Actually, I think this is more than just the usual shifting around... Bush didn't play around, no, he's actually serious when he wants to put Social Security on the stock market, or saying that Saddam is in league wth Al Quaeda... In other words, he's dangerously stupid. There's a reason for this rebalance.

hey every one did you know that rusty mizel belongs to the "CHRISTAN IDENTINY"
movement.
And that fag is gay i saw him in church kissing a guy.

The reason for this decision is because rusty belongs to the CHRISTAN IDENTITY MOVEMENT and he was probably in on that one.
Oh not to mention randy dixion membershiip in the "WORLD CHURCH OF THE CREATOR" movement.
