Why are they looking for a new reporter? Who are they letting go? And how come I don't see Mary Marsh on the air?

The reporter job is actually reporter/producer to replace one of the lost producers.

why is it called reporter/producer when they don't get to report? And why is it called reporter on the website? Sounds misleading to me. Have any of their other employees been mislead with this job description in the past?

I don't know. Donna Douglass did for a while, now she is back on KARK early morning with Marissa and a preacher.

"Prowl" is a good way to put it.

KFSM announced today that Van Comer will be the news director effective June 1, as well as remaining on as general manager. This is despite only having a sales background. Way to sale yourself Van! He will now also liked to be referred to as "The Man".

Note: The phrase "The Man" in no way implies that Van is in fact human.

You've got to be kidding!!!
Van the Man, now he's News Director. Ha, Ha, Know wonder it's so obvious that KFSM is looking inexperienced and unprofessional. The employees with quality experience and skill get shucked off into a cubby hole (dungeon) to be kept overworked/unappreciated. If a quality employee speaks up and proves their worthiness, plus show the amount of quality experience they can give 210% of the time. That employee gets fired. Oh, by the way Loyalty gets you nowhere with KFSM. Hope life is good for you, Van. Life is so much better away from KFSM.

Well, at least he'll be able to spend his days meeting with himself instead of wasting someone else's time!

No news really other than 5 continues its downward spiral. It's almost like they are trying to lose their place in the ratings. Content continues to suffer and now they've brought in a new news director- James Warner. You'd think they would have done some research into his career before hiring him. Why would you hire someone with a reputation for putting ratings into a downward trend. Not to mention his reputation as HR nightmare. How many pending lawsuits does she have?
